Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
Beginning in April, Sephora will begin carrying Karuna’s award-winning collection of sheet masks for the face and neck—making Karuna more accessible than ever. The no-rinse, one-step sheet masks, which target specific skin care needs, are distinguished by their clinically-proven results, exclusive mask + serum duo action and on-the-go convenience.
Karuna sheet masks contain a custom-blended beauty boost featuring plant extracts, peptides and antioxidants to promote replenishment and revitalization to all skin types. Each sheet mask is made from a natural cloth of biodegradable wood-pulp fiber, which retains 50 percent more moisture than synthetic cloths. The types of masks in the Karuna line include Exfoliating+, Clarifying+, Anti-Oxidant+, Brightening+, Age-Defying+, Hydrating+, Renewal+ Eye and more. The Karuna Luxe collection features sheet masks with highly active serums infused into exceptional sheet mask material, including 100 percent Japanese cotton and Bio-Cellulose. They are also free of petrochemicals. All Karuna products are dye-free, paraben-free and contain no sulfates.
“Seeing Karuna in Sephora’s is a dream come true,” said Linda Wang, founder of Karuna. “I created Karuna sheet masks to help women discover an easy beauty routine and feel great about their skin. Now, with the reach of Sephora, millions of people will gain access to our clinically-proven mask + serum sheet masks.”
Wang said that according to Karuna’s market research, most women aren’t paying enough attention to their skin. “We found that nine out of 10 women don’t mask as often as they should, because clay and mud masks are messy and inconvenient. Any aesthetician will tell you that regular masking is essential to skin health. Karuna sheet masks are an easy, mess-free way to apply a deep conditioning to your skin and improving its general appearance,” she said.
Karuna’s sheet masks require no setup, long application times or cleanup like traditional clay, mud or liquid masks. The no-fuss sheet masks are specially cut to adhere to the curves of the face. Once the mask is applied, relax for 15-20 minutes, remove it and massage the excess serum into the face. Each mask bathes hard to reach pores in the rich, replenishing ingredients and results are instant—and more than you’d see from a serum, alone. Each mask contains a custom-blended beauty boost, and plant extracts, peptides and antioxidants bring replenishment to all skin types.
“Our goal at Sephora is to offer high-level expertise and best in class product across all our category offerings,” says Sephora Chief Merchant Margarita Arriagada. “Karuna masks offer our clients a smart, easy to use, savvy skin care treatment that meets the demands of their busy lifestyle.”
