Swiss Snow Algae
Scientifically proven to help reduce the visible effects of ageing. Applied topically, it activates skin’s longevity genes, inhibits harmful collagen destroying enzymes and helps prevent damage caused by oxidative stress.
Locks in up to 1,000 times its weight in water within the cells of your skin, providing long-lasting hydration and restoring lost volume. Its bioactive properties stimulate natural collagen and elastin levels for improved skin tone and radiance.
Goldenrod, Green Caviar® and Plantago extracts
Collectively soothe, strengthen and regenerate the skin, boosting firmness and helping to reduce the appearance of damage for a smoother, healthier-looking complexion.
The Bio-Cellulose Difference
Bio-cellulose is a super thin, all natural fiber that was originally developed as artificial skin to heal and soothe burns and dress chronic wounds.
Hugging the face much like a second skin, bio-cellulose masks create an occlusive barrier, physically sealing in the active serums underneath; helping to more effectively deliver vital nutrients right to the dermis of the skin.
In short the bio-cellulose difference is essentially more skin contact + higher penetration = More active ingredients delivered.
If you have only ever tried traditional clay mask formulas or paper sheet masks, treat your complexion to some serious indulgence akin to a professional facial with our Bio-cellulose mask.
The Bio-cellulose difference
Ultra thin biological fibers – Settle into skin folds for deep skin contact resulting in optimum absorption of active ingredients into the skin
Better delivery of key ingredients – Absorption properties have been scientifically proven to deliver key ingredients direct to the skin for deeper ingredient penetration by up to 50%
Maximum adhesion – Adheres to the skin much like a second skin
High Absorption – The bio-cellulose fibres absorb more serum than a paper mask, so you get more of the good stuff
Natural and environmentally-friendly – Produced by a 100% biological process makes the masks compostable and toxin-free
Convenient – Easy and mess free compared to traditional clay masks. Tightly woven and very durable, they don’t rip or tear like paper masks and wont dry out during use.

The Beauty of Science
Why doesn’t this mask contain collagen?
Science proves that collagen cannot be absorbed effectively through the skin, as a cream or serum—the collagen molecule is too large to penetrate the skin’s surface effectively. That’s why ProPlenish has created this Swiss Snow Algae Facemask with collagen stimulating ingredients to be used in conjunction with ProPlenish marine collagen oral supplements for complete inner and outer beauty.
Scientific Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
A statistically significant moisturising effect was observed with Hyaluronic Acid. After 2,4, and 8 weeks of treatment, the skin was significantly more hydrated than the untreated skin. Measurement of skin roughness showed a significantly finer skin structure after two weeks of treatment An improvement of skin elasticity was measured in comparison to untreated skin and demonstrated a significant improvement after two weeks of treatment and continued throughout the study.
Scientific Benefits of Bio-Cellulose
An evaluation of the effectiveness of bio-cellulose facial masks as active delivery systems to skin showed a significant decrease in skin roughness and wrinkle breadth, and an improvement in dermal homogeneity and firmness, observed after 2 months of treatment with “anti‐aging” masks. This study highlights that bio-cellulose masks are effective delivery systems to successfully release into the skin several types of active compounds exerting many beneficial effects.
Directions & Ingredients
Directions for use
For optimum skin health Science shows that skin regenerates every four weeks. Using the mask twice weekly for the first two weeks, then once a week thereafter will reward you with the best results. For optimum skin health, consider combining regular mask use with daily ProPlenish Marine Collagen oral supplements.
