Most of our Facials and Masks have a slightly gritty texture - that's because we keep all the lovely ingredients right in the mix - we don't infuse and sift-out the fiber of our fruits and veggies that make our masks such powerhouses. Some natural separation is normal, give it a mix if necessary and store in a cool, dark place. Consult a doctor if nursing or pregnant.
