Earthwise Beauty

Imhotep's Balsam Face Mask

A finely milled powder mask that transforms into a pleasantly sticky, easy-to-spread, comforting roots-and-herbs paste once water is added, this restorative face mask feels like a reparative balm, a mud medicine, a fragrant compress made of roots, barks, and freshly crushed elemi resin tears.

Hand-ground Hawaiian alaea salt, nourishing chickweed, redness-calming chamomile flowers, soothing and hydrating mucilage-rich roots of marshmallow and comfrey, brightening licorice root, collagen synthesizing birch bark, clarifying and moisturizing astragalus root, and vitality-enhancing elemi resin unite in perfect harmony to create a moisture-replenishing, barrier-repairing, deeply conditioning mask that takes radiance to the next level.

Named after Imhotep, a prominent figure in Ancient Egyptian history who served as Pharaoh Djoser’s advisor and was mysteriously elevated to the position of god of medicine and healing by the Ancient Egyptians.

50ml/1.1oz

Aloe barbadensis leaf powder*, Sodium chloride (red alaea salt)†, Matricaria recutita (chamomile) buds (organic or *), Althaea officinalis (marshmallow) root (organic or *), Stellaria media (chickweed) leaf and stem (organic or *), Astragalus membranaceus root (certified organic whenever available), Betula lenta (paper birch) bark (* or †), Glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice) root*, Symphytum officinale (comfrey) root (organic or *), Cedrus atlantica (Atlas cedar) extract†, Canarium luzonicum (elemi) resin essential oil†, Zingiber cassumunar Roxb.

Measure out 1 teaspoon of the powder and mix with just enough water to achieve a workable, moist paste. Apply onto freshly washed, towel-dried skin and leave on for 30 minutes. Mist with a hydrosol or face toner while wearing the mask. Remove with cotton rounds or a wetted face towel. 

Founded by herbalist, flower essence practitioner, and studying aromatherapist, Ava Zhan, Earthwise Beauty was built upon a lifetime love of skincare products and immersion in nutritional and herbal healing, homeopathy, and aromatherapy.

When she lived in New York City in her early 20s, she worked at a book publisher and would create products in the evenings with ingredients from the local health food store. Soon her coworkers were begging her to make products for them, and her nights were filled to the brim with crafting products. And, so, the spark for Earthwise Beauty was born.

Now with a deep focus on freshness, purity, quality, and luxury, and based in Spokane, Washington, Earthwise Beauty has evolved into a small-batch, organic skincare line based on alive, unrefined, plant-based ingredients with a commitment to preserving the life force contained within the plants. And sourcing is paramount: Ava has close partnerships with organic gardeners, two beekeepers, and a small handful of essential oil and hydrosol suppliers and distillers (who are all dedicated to authenticity, purity, freshness, and organic and sustainability standards). Earthwise Beauty also stays focused on their pro-environment practices and fair trade commitment, and their passion for sustainability informs everything they do: from ingredient selection and product development to packaging and shipping materials. They also have set up an ongoing quarterly donation program to nonprofit organizations that not only spread the word about man-caused damage to the planet earth, its climate, and its fauna and flora, but that have the know-how to effect real changes.
