DMK Herb & Mineral Mist
DMK Herb & Mineral Mist
Herb & Mineral Mist contains over 98% cold water-soaked herbs that can act systemically as well as have a direct effect on the skin. By having such a high content of minerals and herbs the solution becomes polarized (thus breaking surface tension immediately). It acts as a carrier vehicle for the oils and crème into the skin. The mist is an essential part of the Home Prescriptive regime. Herb & Mineral Mist is a polarized spray which aids in transepidermal delivery, infusing a multitude of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and water. This could be thought of as the “vehicle” that carries the nutrients.
Herb & Mineral Mist aids in the delivery of vital nutrients to the skin. It is designed to revise dermal hydration and free water levels by addressing the acid mantle and barrier function. Herb & Mineral Mist provides astringent, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties.
Recommended for all skins, Herb & Mineral Mist is DMK’s signature product for transepidermal delivery to be used with all DMK oils and nourishing crèmes. Herb & Mineral Mist can be used as many times throughout the day as desired and can be sprayed over make-up.
Spray four to five times over DMK oils and nourishing crèmes.
