Not just a beautiful gemstone, white jade is also a precious skincare ingredient used in Sulwhasoo’s Radiance Energy Mask to detoxify and clarify.

For thousands of years, jade has been one of the most highly prized stones in Oriental culture. A symbol of beauty, nobility and goodness, it is often made into jewellery and luxury ornaments, but its value goes far beyond the decorative.
Modern studies have found that jade transmits far infrared rays – longwave light rays that give off heat. When used in skincare, this property has been shown to warm skin, thereby boosting blood circulation and detoxification. In addition, the stone is said to emit negative ions which neutralise free radicals and improve cell metabolism.
The belief that jade has the ability to purify and energise skin is the reason why holistic beauty brand Sulwhasoo makes it the key element in its Radiance Energy Mask. This leave-on overnight mask with a velvety, comforting texture is intended to draw out pollutants and toxins while strengthening the skin barrier. The morningafter results: soft, hydrated skin that looks brighter and more even-toned, with a rosy glow.
Thanks to the brand’s exclusive Jadesphere technology, the mask contains powdered white jade – one of the rarest forms of the stone – in porous capsules. These capsules enable the precious ingredient to be delivered into the deeper layers of skin to maximise its absorption.
Apply a moderately thick layer as the last step of your night-time beauty ritual after moisturiser or emulsion, whenever your skin is suffering from dehydration or looks dull, rough and fatigued.
