The Pure Biology Clay Face mask is surprisingly effective. Our testers found that the claims made on the internet about cleaning pores, reducing blackheads and altering and reducing blemishes on the skin…were all actually true! The manufacturers say:
“AN ENHANCED TAKE ON CLAY – While incorporating all of the deep cleansing benefits of a traditional clay base, “Advanced Pure” goes a step beyond. The addition of NaturePepTMPea, a proprietary pea peptide extract, promotes noticeable improvements in skin brightness and texture. This clay face mask is ideal for correcting a variety of skin imperfections, such as: acne, large pores, dark spots, blackheads & excess oil, while simultaneously illuminating a dull or lackluster complexion – all without drying or irritating.
A SUPERIOR WAY TO CLEANSE & BRIGHTEN – Cleansing clay face masks and soaps generally don’t offer substantial illuminating effects. Facial brighteners, such as scrubs and harsh peel-off masks, don’t provide deep cleansing below the surface and often agitate skin. Our formulation supplies the benefits of both traditional cleansers and brighteners, while avoiding the irritation and inflammation that is common among many brightening masks.
THE SCIENCE OF NATUREPEPTM PEA – This proprietary extract blends science with nature to create a more uniform complexion by smoothing and evening skin texture. By interfering with the over-expression of melanin (often caused by exposure to UV rays) and pro-inflammatory genes, this peptide improves skin tone by restoring pigment to homeostasis (natural balance), producing lighter and more even skin.
THE CLINICAL DATA – In a double-blind, half-face clinical study involving female volunteers, melanin content was found to be reduced by 11% vs. placebo. This resulted in visible reductions in skin imperfections caused by UV damage, inflammation and aging. Over the 28-day study, visible differences were observed and measured on the sides of the face treated with 3% NaturePepTM Pea. On average, the test subjects realized a 15% decline in surface spots, a 17% reduction in red spots and a 21% decrease in skin roughness vs. placebo.”
Our testers used the clay face mask
a few times a week for 4 weeks. They said it smelled great and visibly reduced the size of large pores and what they had thought were permanent marks on the skin. Definitely worth buying and not too pricey.
