Description Tried & Tested How to Use
 
Reparative mask for all skin types

This soft flower-dust of a mask rebuilds skin tissue that is compromised, damaged from environmental factors, sensitized, or unhealthy. The extraordinary range of nutrients in Sungod comes from roots, mushrooms, adaptogenic herbs, leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds, and mineral-rich Celtic salt.

This is not a face mask that offers a quick but ephemeral brightening or purifying effect. Botanicals with the ability to substantially improve skin health and radiance need to be given a proper chance, with frequent applications and time (at least a few weeks). The results you can expect are an improvement in chronic skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, and cold-sore outbreaks; as well as faster skin healing and improved elasticity, thickness, coloring, firmness, and resilience (such as a decrease in tendency toward scarring). Mature and dry or dehydrated skin will look revitalised, thicker, and better nourished.

Here are highlights about the key ingredients:
Wildflower pollen
: Bees collect pollen from many flower species flowering at once, so each bit of pollen will have constituents from hundreds to thousands of flowering plants, from trees to herbs and wildflowers. Pollen contains amino acids, enzymes, rutin, phospholipids, vitamins, and minerals. It is antibacterial, antiviral, anti-tumor, and immune-boosting; it is protective against radiation, and it strengthens capillaries. We buy the freshest wildflower pollen from a trusted artisan beekeeper from California.

Calendula is Earth Wise Beauty founder, Ava's number one skin-healing and skin-beauty plant, hands down. It helps bring every imaginable yet undesirable skin condition to a healthier state. We grow most of our organic calendula flowers ourselves. Whole flowers are air-dried in soft sun or semi-shade and stored away from light and excessive heat. For this mask we take the dry flower heads and laboriously separate the yellow petals from the green flower sepals, then we mill the petals into a fine powder.

Comfrey
is an important herb for many Western herbalists and flower essence practitioners. Its special gift is tissue regeneration (it is used in various preparations not limited to skin healing, from broken bones to head falls). Calendula and comfrey are also two of the most effective herbs to help skin that is highly sensitive to topical products and ingredients.

Goldenseal rhizome is the anti-acne component of this mask (along with the raw Celtic salt) with its antibacterial, antiviral, puffiness-reducing, and astringent properties.

The superfruit pomegranate supplies vitamins A, C, and E and also aids in sun-damage repair.

The scent of this powder mask is sunny and flower-malty from the calendula flower petals, sweet and comforting from the sunflower petals, and a touch green yet smooth from the comfrey leaves. (Smell the prepared paste, not the powder.) No essential oils have been added. The mask is triple milled into a very fine, soft powder. It turns creamy when you add water.

Skin Types
For all skin types, especially mature, with signs of aging, with eczema, and acne-prone. Some individuals are allergic to flower pollen; patch test first.

The Story
Sungod was created to feel like a gift to us humble humans from the sun god. It is for the souls who always crave sun rays, who worship the sun's power, and who, during dark winter months, dream about sun-washed beaches and cliffs. Sungod addresses our innate need for the sun and its literal and mysterious healing gifts. The sun nurtures, warms, dries what is damp, and banishes gloomy or depressed moods.

What goes hand-in-hand with a love for the sun, though, are the dangers of overexposure, from sun damage and premature signs of ageing on the skin to the risk of skin cancer.

Our Sungod mask nurtures with sun-reminiscent and historically sun-associative botanicals (those with a correspondence to the third chakra in the body, the solar plexus), from sunflowers and calendulas to wildflower pollen and turmeric root, and it includes hard-studied anti-cancer plants (maitake and shiitake mushrooms, flower pollen, and goldenseal).

How does this compare to the other masks we offer?
Sungod
is a soft powder mask designed to gradually yet significantly improve the skin over time. With regular use it helps reduce signs of aging and heal scars, eczema, psoriasis, and acne. The powder, a blend of wildflower pollen, shiitake and maitake mushrooms, and calendula and sunflower petals, forms a smooth, creamy paste when mixed with water or another liquid. This mask contains no essential oils, but does contain a small amount of clay. Both Sungod and our other powder-format mask, Catharsis, require an extra moment of time to blend the powder with a liquid before using.

While Sungod is designed to produce longer-term changes and heal the skin gradually over time, with Catharsis, you can expect immediate results after each use. Sungod is nurturing, while Catharsis is cooling.
