One year after Indige Skincare’s Anti-aging and Salycyllic masks were unvelied onto the beauty market, trade journals are starting to take notice. These revolutionary new skin care products—based around novel hyrdrating and exfoliating principles - has been featured in peer-reviewed journal, Cosmetic Dermatology’s August issue. The published paper features the research of Martin Laguens (deceased), MD, Marta I. Rendon, MD and William H. Reeves, PhD, titled “The Effects of a New Transdermal Hydrating and Exfoliating Cosmetic Face Mask in the Maintenance of Facial Skin.”
The article highlights the effectiveness of this new skin therapy that delivers botanical nutrients deep into skin cells, literally pushing moisture and medicinals deep into the skin, the same way medical patches work. The immediate hydration and rejuvenation has long-lasting results. The paper speaks volumes about the noticiable effect the masks had on the skin’s hydration.
According to the paper, “The results of the study produced clinically measurable evidence that the mechanism of action of the Indige face mask appears to be potentially valuable in the maintenance of facial skin.”
The Indige Skincare Anti-aging and Deep Cleansing Salicylic masks allow for weekly micro-peels with a natural botanical alpah-hydroxy acid that causes the dead skin cells to exfoliate. The mask’s function is two-fold: To deliver medicinals to the skin for repair and revitalization and to loosen and remove dead skin cells in order to stimulate the rejuvination process.
The Anti-Aging Mask uses a combination of AHA’s and botanicals to reduce fine lines, rehydrate your skin and even out complexion tones, a gentle micro-peel at an affordable price. The Deep Cleansing Mask helps treat problem skin such as blemishes, blackheads and pimples through a combination of salicylic acid and botanicals, exfoliating dead skin which holds bacteria. Simply apply the masks to your face for 30-45 minutes once a week and you’ll have that glow which comes from healthy, well-moisturized skin.
“The Indige mask delivery system leads to the deepest cleansing of the epidermis, said Marta I. Rendon, M.D., founder of the Rendon Center for Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine and Medical Director for Indige. “The mask also allows for increased efficacy of treatment by increasing the absorption of the alpha hydroxy and salicylic acids into the skin. The mask is a scientifically formulated, balanced mixture of nutrients which are delivered to vessels in the skins micro-environment. Increasing blood flow helps remove toxins that directly damage skin cells and connective tissue and are the direct cause of wrinkles.”
Indige Anti-Aging mask ligtens and brightens skin, improving radiance and balancing pigmentation, increases the appearance of firmness and elasticity and reduces skin roughness and texture with a powerful micropeel. The mask is activated when is comes into contact with wet skin.

Study Excerpts (source: Cosmetic Dermatology)
- Twenty-four women between the ages of 38 and 64 years with carcinoma of the breast scheduled to undergo mastectomy for their disease volunteered and were selected for the study.
- The research investigates moisture absorption rates of stratum corneum and the effects of skin hydration on the ultrastructural and microscopic changes in dermal type III collagen.
- The research evaluated heat shock protein (HSP) distribution through immunohistochemical analysis because the stratum corneum loses its capacity to bind water with age.
- The absorption tests were performed at differing times - after initial face mask test material application and removal.
- Comparing both treated and untreated skin samples from mastectomy tissue specimens, researchers observed that treated skin samples absorbed and retained as much as 30% of the moisture presented to the surface of the skin as compared to untreated skin samples.
- The following observations were made between treated and untreated skin samples: substantial dermal microvascular changes, thickening of epidermal stratum corneum, flattening of dermal papillae, and water retention in collagen. The observed thickening of the epidermal stratum corneum may provide an exceptional pretreatment milieu for desquamation with any type of facial resurfacing procedure.
- Utilizing this technology on a weekly basis could provide an excellent posttreatment maintenance program for continued removal of dead surface skin cells and cell fragments, as well as the protein debris that tends to dull the appearance of the skin.
- The lyophilized botanicals provided by the face mask supply beneficial medicinal properties not found in many dermaceutical preparations.
