Green Science Masque-Age

Woman getting facial.

The Aveda Green Science Masque-Age is one of my favorite products that Aveda has to offer. It is a great product to use during the massage portion of a facial for any skin type, as well as a great take-home product recommendation for a mature client who has dehydrated, dull, or wrinkled skin.

This masque/massage cream duo contains lots of hydrating and nutrient-rich ingredients including:

  • Jojoba Oil

    This oil is very hydrating and makes for an excellent natural moisturizer. Jojoba is said to be the closest oil in molecule structure in size to the natural sebum our skin produces, making it easy to penetrate nutrients deeply into the skin. In addition to its hydrating properties, it also promotes collagen production.

  • Murumuru Butter

    This nourishing butter contains a powerful dose of antioxidants, preventing free radical damage that causes aging. It is high in fatty acids as well as vitamin A, making it excellent for restoring the elasticity aging skin.

  • Brazil Nut Oil

    This oil is very good for aging skin, giving it a natural glow. It contains vitamins A and E which act as antioxidants, minimizing the effects of free radical damage. This oil is also high in selenium, an antioxidant that aids in cell protection. In addition to its anti-aging properties, Brazil nut oil is great for treating psoriasis, eczema, chronic dry skin, and other skin conditions.
