Greenyarn (Boston), a designer of fabrics for consumers seeking eco-friendly alternatives to conventional materials, is introducing the third iteration of the facial mask series, Moist+ 3. Made from fibers embedded with nano-particles of bamboo charcoal, Eco-cotton absorbs and emits Far Infrared Rays, energy that can travel beneath the skin and stimulate blood flow and cell activation. It is this which makes the nutrients in the mask more easily absorbed by the wearer's skin. “The Moist+ 3 facial mask will give you the benefits of a spa-quality facial in your own home, for less than half of the next top shelf mask, “ said Alan Wong, Greenyarn's Distributor in Malaysia. “Each mask is pre-cut and pre-moistened with a mix of Sea Weed Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Bamboo Extract, Matricaria Extract to moisturize skin and boost its radiance. Moist+ 3 will moisturize and repair skin and prevent wrinkle formation. It also protects against free radicals, and whitens skin in just 15 minutes. And unlike other facial masks, the fabric is not bleach, so it does not contain any form of harmful preservatives that may cause skin irritation.“
