What does the peppermint essential oil in Redmond Clay Charcoal Masks do?

Peppermint essential oil can soothe and refresh your skin.

A lot of people love the cool, clean feeling in their mouth from mint-flavored products, but peppermint essential oil can provide a lot more than fresh breath.  We included it in our Redmond Clay Charcoal Mint Mask due to its ability to soothe and cool the skin.

Peppermint essential oil is also known to remove oil and impurities, alleviate temporary skin redness and discomfort, and promote plump, revitalized skin. 

We especially love the aroma of peppermint oil. Research suggests that simply smelling peppermint essential oil can relieve everyday tension and increase alertness.

The scent is subtle in our Mint Charcoal Mask because we didn't want to overpower those with sensitive noses, but most people will notice and (based on the very unscientific feedback we've received) the refreshing peppermint aroma adds to the charcoal mask experience.
