Here are some of the Superfood Smoothie Mask's new bioactive ingredients (including one climate hero) — plus some surprising facts about the familiar ones — and how they’ll help take your complexion to the next level of luminosity. 

Wakame & Kombu – These seaweeds are a protein and vitamin-rich superfood eaten by humans all over the world. They are also loaded with skin-loving minerals, such as calcium, iron, folic acid, and Vitamin K.

In its wild and untamed form, seaweed creates a habitat where fish, invertebrates, birds, and marine mammals find food and protection from predators. As for its eco-superstar credentials, scientists have been assessing the carbon sequestration potential of seaweed for the last couple decades. One possible and simple solution to helping reverse climate change is to ramp up seaweed aquaculture to capture carbon dioxide (CO2). This is because seaweed (which also buffers against ocean acidification, dampens wave action, reduces coastal erosion, and cleans up waterways by absorbing excess nutrients from wastewater), and uses photosynthesis to turn carbon dioxide (CO2) into seaweed biomass. This process is known as carbon sequestration. Fast-growing seaweed is highly regenerative, and when it regenerates, it consumes CO2 at a fast rate. Once that CO2 is locked up in seaweed biomass, it can be harvested for use, or it can sink to the seafloor and be naturally stored underground, where it originated.

Matcha Tea – Rich in antioxidants, Matcha helps to replenish and reduce visible signs of aging. Our Matcha comes from Wazuka, Japan a historied tea-making town producing the world's most premium, hand-milled Matcha from family-run farms dedicated to this craft for over 800 years.

French White & Green Clay – Helps purify and detoxify, unclog pores, and gently exfoliate.

Acai – Antioxidant and omega-rich to help revive dull, lackluster skin.

Goji Berry – Helps defend against environmental damage and improve tone.

And here are a few of the superstar ingredients in our Daily Exfoliator (don't forget to check out our Meet the Bioactives Library for the details on all our new ingredients): 

Plant-Based AHAs  Polish away expired skin to reveal smoother, more refined skin. 

Cranberry - Antioxidant-rich exfoliant with Vitamins C & A supports cell renewal. 

Maple Leaf Extract - Powerful anti-aging active which helps reduce appearance of dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles.
