61% Mugwort Green Vital Energy Complex Sheet Mask
In the 21st century, sheet masks have become a hot topic. They can be used for many different purposes and come in many different forms. Sheet masks have found their way into our daily skincare routine after generally being used only once per week in the past. You can use a sheet mask for urgent skin needs or everyday, making them versatile and extremely useful. So what exactly makes a sheet mask so unique?
Sheet masks can be compared to protein bars. Each is fiber-infused with lots of goodies for your skin such as actives, extracts, hydrating ingredients, and highly concentrated serums. The sheet itself plays a big part as a protective shield that keeps all those juicy ingredients from evaporating into thin air.
If you take a look at the ingredient list of any sheet mask, you will see that a majority of the ingredients are extracts that contain lots of vitamins and actives. The reason these work so well is because extracts are in a water state when they are found in other products and applied topically, they evaporate quickly before sinking into your skin. By applying sheet masks for an adequate amount of time, the skin is able to effectively absorb the rich, concentrated serum into the deeper layers of the skin.
In this blog post we will introduce the new addition to our 611 line and at the end, we will share some tips on how and why to use a sheet mask.
As we explained above, sheet masks are packed with nourishing extracts and hydrating ingredients. At AXIS-Y, we decided to formulate a refreshing, smoothie-like mix: 61% Mugwort Green Vital Energy Complex Sheet Mask.
Yes, it has 61% of Mugwort extract in addition to 15 other energizing extracts. We already have a dedicated blog post on the benefits of Mugwort, so make sure to check it out if you are curious as to why AXIS-Y loves this super-ingredient.
Let’s take a look at the 15 extracts that are making up this smoothie energy complex:
Artemisia Capillaris Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Melia Azadirachta Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Glycyrrhiza Uralensis (Licorice) Root Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Brassica Oleracea Capitata (Cabbage) Leaf Extract, Hibiscus Esculentus Fruit Extract, Spinacia Oleracea (Spinach) Leaf Extract, Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Extract, Artemisia Princeps Leaf Water
If we were to talk about the amazing, individual benefits of each of these ingredients, it would take up the entire post! However, if you take a look at the ingredients list below, you will notice an interesting ingredient we want to highlight:
Sodium Hyaluronic Acid derivative “sodium salt” has a lower molecular weight, penetrating deeper into the skin by providing similar benefits as Hyaluronic Acid.
That is why this combination is the best for the skin to absorb with the help of a fiber that provides the absorption barrier. Speaking of fiber, the 61% Mugwort Green Vital Energy Complex Sheet Mask’s fiber is made of 100% vegetable-derived material (cellulose). It contains no binder or silicone. It has good adhesion and is soft to the touch, so you can use it comfortably and with less pressure on your skin.
Why does it appear green?
Rest assured, there is no artificial coloring involved at all. Green is the natural color of the extracts like Cabbage Leaf Extract, Spinach Leaf Extract, Broccoli Extract along with a large amount of artemisia capillaris extract (61% to be exact). These natural superfood ingredients give the mask’s fiber its green hue.

What Inspired the Creation of 61% Mugwort Green Vital Energy Complex Sheet Mask?
Just like when we developed our “New Skin Resolution Gel Mask”, we one again wanted to know your thoughts and learn what the next thing you were looking for.
We conducted research through a survey on our website with more than 200 participants. We asked a lot of questions, and one of them was about what other products you envision AXIS-Y developing. A majority of participants wanted to see a sheet mask and a line of products with Mugwort from us. As a brand that always strives to listen to the voice of our community, we decided to develop a special sheet mask for you.
We wanted to focus our attention on the quality of the product as well as environmental sustainability. This allowed us to develop an amazing, rich formula of 15 extracts and 61% Mugwort coming together in the form of a plant-based cellulose fiber sheet.
Our new 61% Mugwort Green Vital Energy Complex Sheet Mask is a product chosen and made by you, our community.
Skin benefits of 61% Mugwort Green Vital Energy Complex Sheet Mask
Our mask packs are best suited for home care to use with ease when your skin needs some extra TLC. We made sure to formulate the perfect viscosity for the ampoule and serum to prevent the annoyance of liquid dripping off the mask during use. This formula minimizes inconvenience and promotes a firm, but moisturized feeling after use. We recommend that if you have oily skin, you omit additional skincare steps when using this mask. If you have dry skin, you can use one or two additional skincare products if extra hydration is necessary.
The sheet mask’s cooling and soothing extracts help soothe irritated skin and keep the skin moisturized until the next morning if used at night or provides lasting hydration throughout the day if used in the morning.
