MELA mask

Product Info

The MELA mask is a powerful at-home peel for the effective treatment of hyperpigmentation (including melasma, chloasma, UV-induced hyperpigmentation, superficial melanin disorders, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, solar lentigines, and freckles). As one of the pHformula’s most active products using maximum strength formulations, this mask is a must-have to reduce dull and uneven skin tone. It works by inhibiting the tyrosinase enzyme as well as promoting the growth of healthy, new skin cells. The clay base assists in the even and rapid penetration of powerhouse actives. Numerous clinical studies have reported that 4-Butylresorcinol is an excellent skin brightening and whitening agent and a safe, non-irritating alternative active to harsher actives such as hydroquinone. In combination with retinol, cell turnover is stimulated, which decreases hyperpigmentation even further. Lactobionic Acid is a potent anti-oxidant with multiple benefits and also assists in wound healing. PH-DVC™ is a superior delivery complex used in the pHformula formulations to enhance the penetration of active ingredients. The MELA mask is the ultimate glow booster and can brighten skin in as little as 5 minutes. 

  • Apply a thin layer of the MELA mask to a clean, dry skin
  • Leave on for 5 minutes (mild temporary tingling is normal)
  • Gently cleanse the skin with the EXFO cleanse to remove all traces of the mask and pat dry (if severe irritation develops during the 5 minutes cleanse the skin with the EXFO cleanse immediately, pat dry and moisturise)
  • For more skin activity and if the skin can tolerate apply a second even layer after 5 minutes and leave on for 10 minutes
  • Gently cleanse the skin with the EXFO cleanse to remove all traces of the mask and pat dry. 
  • Use once every 3 weeks for a mild skin activity and once per week for more skin activity

NOTE: This product may increase skin’s sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. Apply high quality, broad spectrum SPF and limit sun exposure while using this product
