KNESKO, a leading innovator in the skincare industry, blends science and spirituality to create gemstone-infused, Reiki-charged, collagen gel facial masks. Read on to learn all about the latest “sheet mask craze” and what sets our products apart from other popular sheet masks.
What is a sheet mask?
The indulgent new trend is literally a sheet of fiber, pulp, hydrogel, or bio-cellulose containing any number of skincare of ingredients that are activated when pressed to the skin. Utilizing this unique delivery system, moisturizers, cleansers, peels, and other active ingredients are absorbed by the skin on a deeper level and with greater efficacy than by simply applying the products to the skin’s outermost layer during a typical skincare routine. Sheet masking is both a great way to get ready for a night out, and an indulgent ritual for a night in. Apply the mask to the face, neck, and/or chest and feel the ingredients work their magic. At the prescribed time, remove the sheet mask and rinse any remaining product from the face according to package instructions. Results are usually noticeable right away.
How do they work?
The sheet or overlay portion of the mask works as a barrier, keeping moisture from evaporating while it lays on your face and allowing the products to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin. The nutrient composition of the mask cannot evaporate as easily as it would if it were exposed to air and friction. The sheet, which may be saturated in up to 70% water, is the both the vessel and delivery system for whatever special formula the sheet mask contains. Once the mask is affixed to the skin, the nutrients go to work.
Chemicals to avoid
Makers of sheets masks cater to all types of demographics from acne-prone pre-teens to moisture-starved, mature skincare enthusiasts. They come in every price point and every composition. Discerning consumers take heed!
There are sneaky ingredients that you do not want on your face, or circulating in your lymphatic system for that matter. Your skin is a social organ. It wants to bond with its environment. And it will readily absorb what it comes into contact with. Certain ingredients may actually be actually harmful and should be avoided if possible.
Red flag ingredients include:
- Propylene glycol
- Butylene glycol

Feed the largest organ in your body nutrients it really wants. Your skin will LOVE you for it.
