Pangea Organics: This Face Mask Grows Basil


We love any beauty product that does double duty, so we were immediately sucked in when we heard Pangea Organics offered a face mask that would not only spruce up our skin, but also arrives in plantable packaging that grows into Genovese Sweet Basil.

Made with natural ingredients such as Japanese matcha tea, acai and goji berry that promise to revitalize with antioxidants while polishing the skin, the Facial Mask comes wrapped in rugged paper packaging that you soak, then plant in soil. The seeds inside the packing should turn into sauce-worthy basil within just a few weeks.

And while we love the plantable packaging trend and hope it continues to grow (check out our recent post on Mr. Larkin for another company embracing plantable fashion), we wouldn’t waste our money if the mask itself didn’t work. Turns out, we think it’s as sweet as the basil promised by the packaging. Free of scary parabens and frightening synthetics, this all-natural mask freshened up our skin without irritating it and left its surface smooth and glowing.

Other Pangea Organics products with plantable packaging include the Facial Cleanser and Facial Scrub. The company also recently launched two new products that we’re dying to try: an Eye Cream and a Balancing Oil made with Himalayan geranium and pomegranate.
