SHEET MASKS

Sheet masks are originally from Asia, used as an intensive treatment step in daily skincare routines. The "pressing" and "soaking" mechanism of the sheet material infused with specialized serum, makes for a highly effective and convenient delivery system on skin. In Ancient times, women placed flowers in water to make a light distillate and then soaked light cotton sheets in it, before placing onto their faces to "sit" over a period of time. They believed that this hydrated and smoothed the texture of their skin for a bright, youthful appearance without too much work. This was the earliest form of sheet masking and was very popular among different social classes as most women could not afford or have access to cosmetics. Smooth, bright and hydrated "doll" like skin was an ideal beauty standard and continues to remain so in Asian cultures, although "glass skin", "cloud skin" trends are now just as popular outside Asia!
Snow Fox Skincare started creating clean, biodegradable, plant-based sheet masks in 2016. Since then we have expanded our range to include matching skincare products to maximize results alongside the sheet masks. Our founder Phoebe found her calling in sheet masks when she discovered how effective they were in helping to manage her inflammatory Rosacea. Paired with the a complete skin care routine, she found a long term solution for her constantly hypersensitive skin.

Similar occlusive benefits are sometimes used in other dermal treatments such as Psoriasis, where cloth sheets or bandages are soaked in steroid solutions and wrapped onto patient's skin to help calm severe irritations. Of course, steroid use is reserved for severe medical cases only and Snow Fox Sheet Masks do not contain any synthetic harsh chemicals, ethanol-based preservatives, artificial color or fragrances as they are formulated for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
