General Questions

What is Bio Cellulose?

Bio cellulose is a natural nanofiber, just 20 nm in diameter. The bio cellulose fabric used in Bel Mondo masks is derived from cultured bacteria.

How will skin feel after application?

After 20 minutes of application, skin feels hydrated and cool, smoother and softer to the touch.

Facial Treatment Mask Questions

What is Bio Cellulose?

Bio cellulose is a natural nanofiber, just 20 nm in diameter. The bio cellulose fabric used in Bel Mondo masks is derived from cultured bacteria.

How is Bio Cellulose Produced?

The laboratory production cycle – which includes fermentation tanks and bio reactors – has multiple, critical stages that cannot be shortchanged or rushed. It takes approximately 10 days from the time the initial microbial culture is developed and fermented until bio cellulose “film” is harvested for mask formation. This amazing bio material is well worth the wait!

Why are facial masks made from Bio Cellulose superior for skin care?

Because of their distinct physical properties, bio cellulose masks offer multiple advantages. First, they have a fluid-holding capacity of up to 100 times their dry weight, so they can be infused with ingredients and remain moist throughout use. Second, they fit like a second skin — maintaining tight dermal contact. The snug fit causes skin temperature to rise, opening pores and allowing beneficial skin care ingredients to be transferred deep into the epidermis.

How else is Bio Cellulose used?

Because of its superfine dimensions and hydrophilic (“water loving) nature, bio cellulose is well suited for a range of biomedical applications. For example, it has been successfully used as artificial skin for burn treatments and as an occlusive dressing for chronic wounds such as diabetic ulcers. Today, organic chemists continue to explore and refine its use for molding into artificial blood vessels used in microsurgery.

Bio cellulose has long been used in the paper manufacturing industry to enhance paper strength and to create electronic displays, in the electronics industry in acoustic diaphragms for audio speakers, and in the pharmaceutical industry as filtration membranes.

Why does Bel Mondo only offer Bio Cellulose masks?

In addition to their functional advantages, bio cellulose masks are eco friendly. They contain no petrochemical materials that are common in the production of non-woven masks. In addition, when cellulose is produced through bio methods, far fewer trees and plants are cultivated for commerce, making them available for CO2 absorption.

When is a Bel Mondo facial mask a better choice than a clay-based or gel mask?

Most clay-based and gel masks come with trade-offs. They typically address a single function (like absorbing oil). They also can be quite messy and time consuming to use. Bel Mondo facial masks deliver multiple skin care benefits, are easy to use, and are ultra-convenient.

What skin types will benefit from Bel Mondo facial masks?

Bel Mondo bio cellulose masks are safe and effective for all skin types. Dry skin will benefit significantly from the intense hydration provided by our mask fabric.

How often and when should Bel Mondo masks be used?

Once or twice per week, depending on mask type. Masks can be used any time but they are ideal at end of day, to restore moisture and aid with skin rejuvenation.

What types of masks does Bel Mondo offer?

Our initial series includes Anti-aging, Ultra-hydrating, and Calming masks. Each mask type contains ingredients that deliver multiple skin care benefits.

How will skin feel after application?

After 20 minutes of application, skin feels hydrated and cool, smoother and softer to the touch.

Is cleansing required after application?

No. After mask removal, gently massage ingredients that remain into skin – adding to overall glow.

Can the ingredients that remain at the bottom of the mask’s foil packet be used?

Absolutely! Those ingredients constitute an amazing moisturizing serum, great for application between mask uses.

What is the shelf life of Bel Mondo masks?

All mask types have a 3-year shelf life. The date of expiry is printed at the top left on the back of the mask’s foil packet.
