To begin with, the company offers five main ingredients in the face mask:purified hyaluronic acid, stabilized vitamin C, niacinamide, N-Acetylglucosamine, and feverfew. The mask’s surface is divided into six skin zones including theeye area, cheeks, nose, chin,forehead, and chin-to-cheek lines. The ingredient in each zone can be selected based on the skin texture in thatparticular zone. The masks are colored to show different zones.
