LEAHLANI – MERMAID MASK

Dive in to this emerald pot of Hawaiian goodness and discover mermaid magic. Made from the soil and nectar of Hawaii, this one product alone will purify, cleanse and soften your skin gently yet effectively.

The Mermaid Mask is a potent and nutrient dense ‘superfood’ face mask designed to feed your skin the nourishment that it needs to reveal a radiant and vibrant complexion. The deep, emerald color comes from two powerhouse superfood ingredients, organic chlorella and organic spirulina. We have found the most beautiful sources of these green beauties to create the Mermaid Mask with.

Our spirulina comes from a farm on the pristine coast of Hawaii that draws on the natural resources that surrounds it – abundant warm sunlight, pure deep ocean water and 100% fresh water drawn from a Hawaiian aquifer. The spirulina is grown in a bio secure zone and uses an ocean chill drying technique. We use the cleanest and most pure source of organic chlorella on the planet, which is grown in outdoor pools under the sunlight and contains cell walls that are “opened” or “cracked” using a specific process that preserves nutrients and increases absorption.

Discover why the Mermaid Mask is a cult favorite in the green beauty world.
