1. Dampen face and cleansing cloth. With gentle circular motions, remove any face or eye makeup.
2. Place a spoonful (¼ tsp) of powder with equal parts warm water in bowl.
3. Using fingertips, apply a thin layer evenly over fresh, damp skin. Embrace reinvigorating mushroom alchemy for 10 minutes or until mask is dry. Remoisten mask, massage, and rinse well. Begin by indulging once a week and work up to using 2-3 times a week or more.
If desired, follow with Adapt Essence Spray for sublime hydration.
WHAT TO EXPECT
This earthy mask is truly for the ‘shroom lovers! Only a thin layer of product is needed and should appear brown yet slightly translucent. Damp skin will help the product spread beautifully. Once dried, mask will tighten and may stimulate a tingling sensation. Rinse to reveal remarkably hydrated, soft skin.
Allow 2 weeks of use for skin to neutralize any impurities and adapt to our 100% active formulas.

More similar to humans than they are plants, mushrooms share a multitude of genetic similarities with us—perhaps fueling an innate compatibility. Invigorate Powder Mask’s adaptogenic prowess lies in its pronounced concentration of 5 mushroom species that are exquisitely grown by our organic partner using climate-controlled environments and state-of-the-art filtration systems to ensure unrivaled purity. Artisanal Fermentation™ stabilizes and activates this potent bunch with 6 probiotic strains and 3 regenerative botanicals all in one cohesive batch to deliver elevated nutrient density and a harmonious, prebiotic + postbiotic formula.
A revered probiotic strain, B. longum helps regulate the appearance of reactive skin, leaving your complexion serene in the face of environmental stress, climate shifts, and hormonal fluctuations. By strengthening the skin’s barrier function, B. longum helps retain moisture for hydrated, healthy skin that stays calm when challenged with potential irritants and the aging process.
Used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine and known as the ‘king of medicinal mushrooms’, chaga is revered for its unrivaled benefits for the skin. Chaga is a hardy mushroom that transmits its evolutionary wisdom to your complexion, encapsulating cells with antioxidant protection from signs of photoaging. Beta glucans, zinc, and polysaccharides work with your body to balance and sustain, helping maintain the skin’s integrity for improved appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and tone.
Used by the ancient Mayan and Aztec civilization for its miraculous properties, cocoa powder encapsulates over 3000 years of skin-improving secrets. With a rich antioxidant and mineral profile, cocoa’s phytonutrients are capable of influencing new beginnings in the skin’s signaling pathways while nourishing receptive cells. Cocoa is a potent source of the biocompound theobromine, which helps moderate pathways that have become disrupted by environmental stress for skin that’s left calm and awakened.
King trumpet harbors a universe of nutrients, and is especially rich in the precious amino acid, ergothionine. Acting as the ultimate protector, ergothionine funnels to areas of the skin barrier that have been breached, shielding cells from further oxidative damage while fortifying for a rejuvenated complexion.
Speaking with both your microbiome and skin, L. casei enlivens barrier function with improved moisture retention for skin that appears smoother and firmer. Once fermented, L. casei’s lysate is capable of producing lactic acid which acts as an effective microbial balancer for a thriving skin-microbiome connection.
Wielding balance as its super power, L. plantarum can help support a properly diverse microbiome and protect from potentially harmful overloads of certain microbial strains. This balancing trick plays an important role in helping uplift the skin’s intuitive abilities and empowering barrier function.
When fermented, L. reuteri uplifts efficacy while releasing potent peptides that rapidly stimulate cell renewal. While fortifying the skin’s barrier, L. reuteri helps recalibrate the skin’s microbiome and helps maintain balance.
rhamnosus harmoniously works to boost the quantity of healthy cells in places that the skin needs it most. By helping uplift the skin’s protective and regenerative mechanisms, renewal is accelerated to reveal a fortified barrier and brilliant complexion.
A medicinal staple of the ancients, new research suggests that lion’s mane could have protective benefits, helping to regenerate frayed nerves and empower the skin’s sensory connection for a serene complexion. Soothe your mind, nerves, and skin with this supreme source of fortifying beta glucans and rejuvenating terpenoids.
A true miracle worker, maitake means ‘dancing mushroom’ in Japanese because people would be so grateful when they’d stumble upon it in the wild, they’d simply have to dance. Maitake is packed with super-nutrient polyphenols and a unique disaccharide that helps fight free-radicals, protect the skin from environmental damage, and improve water retention and hydration. When the body is under stress, maitake’s adaptogenic qualities help recalibrate skin function to mimic normal, stress-free conditions.
Reishi, also known as Ganoderma lucidum, is derived from the Greek words ‘ganos’ meaning brightness and ‘derma’ meaning skin. Also known as the ‘mushroom of immortality’, reishi possesses a unique profile of ganoderic acid and beta glucans that help soothe itchy, dry skin, quell irritated cells, tone hyperpigmentation, smooth fine lines, and boost the skin’s intrinsic detox process.
This probiotic yeast holds the secret to empowered, moisturized skin right in its cell walls. A natural and potent source of skin-strengthening beta glucans, S. cerevisiae bestows our ferments with the ability to activate skin cells responsible for barrier function and collagen production. Skin is left with an invisible film that protects, hydrates, and revitalizes your complexion all day long while supplying your microbiome with balancing nutrients.
Simple yet wise, the ancient goodness of sprouted oats soothes irritated, itchy skin while gentle fatty acids cleanse away the day’s impurities. With a high beta glucan content and unique skin-saving avenanthramides, sprouted oat offers an effective antioxidant profile known to help give the skin a plump appearance, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and help support the skin’s natural barrier.
The aromatherapy of vanilla planifolia radiates and revitalizes the mind with mists of happiness and relaxation.

I love the clean earthiness of For the Biome. I truly feel like I am feeding my skin incredible nourishment and not simply cleaning it. I am so thankful for the time, effort and heart that was put into creating these products! I thank you and my skin thanks you
I love the invigorate powder and the way each item comes packaged. Upon opening the package the instructions and information booklet is first sight, and helpful with images to follow. When the jar is opened the faint scent of Earth and chocolate hits olfactory bliss. After some playing with the product I found my perfect consistency of more liquid than just a 1/4 tsp. The mask tingles, but as you adjust to regular use it feels less intense. At first I thought it made my acne prone skin appear worse, but it rapidly draws out pore clogs and white heads like a miracle. My skin is not acne free but I love the deep clean, the smell, and the process of taking time to take care of my skin. The tool kit is definitely worth buying, it's beautiful quality and the towel is like no other. I'm excited to continue trying other biome products!
