Matcha and bentonite clay join forces to scavenge pore clogging free radicals. Oat straw lends soothing moisture. This mask is especially suitable for oily, acne prone skin types. One jar makes approximately 30 masks. 

Directions: Mix equal parts mask powder with water or hydrosol to form a paste. Try starting with one teaspoon of each. Apply to face/neck. Leave on for 5 -10 minutes or until dried. Rinse with warm water. *Do not use metal utensils when mixing the mask as it can dull the effectiveness of the clays.

 

Key Ingredients:

Bentonite Clay - This clay comes from large volcanic ash deposits in the mountains for Montana. The blend of vitamins and minerals found in this beneficial clay make it ideal for both detoxification and nourishment. Of all the clays, bentonite clay is especially known for its incredible ability to draw out impurities and toxins from deep within your pores.

French Green Clay - A soft, mineral-rich clay from France, Green clay owes its coloration to decomposed plant matter! A very neat example of the cycles of life. This clay is known to absorb dirt and oil from the skin.

Matcha - Internally, matcha (green tea powder) is known for its high antioxidant content, and its ability to reduce free radical damage in the body. In skincare, its much the same. EGCG - one of the main antioxidants found in green tea is shown to possibly reduce DNA damage sustained from UV rays.  Matcha is also high in vitamins B2 and E which helps promote healthy collagen levels, hydrate your skin, and support cell growth.

Oat Straw - From the oat plant - Avena Sativa - oat straw is rich in silicon and calcium, both essential minerals in building and regenerating hair, skin, nails, teeth, and bones. It is a very calming herb that soothes and softens the skin.

handcrafted and curated right here in Upstate NY

All of our leather goods are handmade by The Local Branch out of our Upstate NY homestead workshop, which is just 7 miles from our brick + mortar shop in the charming Finger Lakes village of Skaneateles NY.

We started our leather working journey as transplants to Northern CA from Upstate NY in our early twenties. It was 2009, and hunting for a creative job seemed near impossible during the recession - so we started our own thing, and called it The Local Branch. With very little resources at first, we dabbled in leather working using scrap pieces of hides and a found-on-the-side-of-the-road sewing machine. The very first piece Blaine created was a leather holster, made for his phone and wallet. From there our leather working journey began.

At the same time we began printing apparel with a focus on nature, travel and American history. We stretched our own screens, painting each design by hand and lovingly printed every piece ourselves - a process which is very true to form today. We source all of our blank apparel items in the USA, which has always been our beacon for our brand.

We eventually decided to take this hobby brand into our full time venture. We renovated an Airstream trailer and turned it into our mobile workshop, touring America full time for over two years. We sold our goods at festivals, craft shows and online, as well as wholesale to many shops throughout the USA, Canada and Japan. After landing some of our goods in a few major retailers, we decided to slow down and keep the ethos and vision for the brand to small, local and handcrafted.

Still today Blaine and Mackenzie steer the ship - keeping everything small + handcrafted.
