The gold of the Incas is in our Pink Clay Mask

We are so proud that you can find this superfood, black quinoa in our Pink Clay Mask. You can find quinoa in different variants such as: white quinoa, red quinoa and black quinoa. We chose to use black quinoa in our face mask, because it is the most 'earthy' variant. 

Where does black quinoa come from?
Black quinoa is mostly found in the Andean region of Peru, Bolivia and Chile. The black quinoa in our mask is from the 'Altiplano', the high plain of Bolivia. 

FUNNY FACT: Quinoa is called the gold of the Incas, because it was used in ancient times to increase the power of the civilization's warriors. It is also knows as a ''complete protein'', because in quinoa you can find all nine essential amino acids. And now it is The Gold Of The Glow
