In line with yešti’s commitment to traditional approaches to science, MM uses a highly-densified sap from Greek mastic trees. It is a dense gum that binds to congestion like gum would but it doesn’t bind to oil or water just like gum wouldn’t. It purifies and shrinks the look of pores without drying. The sap is a powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It’s definitely Greek in every way but borrowed by Middle Eastern medicine and called Arabic Gum which should not be confused with the very common substance known as Gum Arabic. The sap in MM is sustainably sourced and is purified in a very precise bio-technology lab with extremely high purity.
Apply a generous amount of this translucent masque to clean face in the AM. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Do not use a cleaner after rinsing. This formulation uses highly-concentrated mastic gum to bind to impurities, resulting in a sticky feel during the treatment period. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to our in-depth guide to patch testing. Keep out of reach of children.
(Note: After rinsing thoroughly, an unessential but beneficial step is to use a blowdryer on a tolerable heat setting for about 15 seconds to dry the face. This step would enhance the visible results of MM immediately.)
