NIOD Mastic Must: Mastic Must, MM, is a pore cleansing masque with mastic gum derived from Greek Mastic trees to purify and shrink open pores.
MM is a transparent masque for efficient, yet innocuous, cleaning and visible refinement of pores and impurities, resulting in immediate and maintainable visible reduction in both the number and the size of pores. (Note: It is not possible to modify the genetically-determined number or size of pores as apparent in optimal skin condition. However, pores do become more apparent in number and size with ageing and environmental exposure. MM works to restore the appearance of pores to an ideal state, within individual genetic limits.)
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.
Mastic Must is designed to be used in the morning.
Directions: Apply a generous amount of this translucent masque to a 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. (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.)
