When was the last time you thought ‘rice’ was fascinating and, dare we say, ‘cool’? Well, how about now? Tecniche’s Molecular Rice Mask is one of the least complicated, but most intriguing skin care products available today. The goal with Molecular Rice Mask was to create a product that would impress the most well-seasoned skincare enthusiasts and professionals, with a focus on one naturally-derived key active. This key active is: Cyanidin-3-Glucoside (C3G). Cyanidin-3-Glucoside (C3G) is extracted from black rice. We told you rice would be intriguing! Why ‘black’ rice? Well, the deep-rich color comes from the high concentration of anthocyanins, which are potent antioxidants found in colored botanicals. Food for thought: The darker the pigment…the higher the levels of anthocyanins, and the more health-promoting a botanical is. Needless to say, since ‘black’ is the darkest natural pigment, very few things can surpass black rices’s anthocyanin content. We are using C3G because it is the molecular “heart” of black rice and contains the most concentrated levels of these anthocyanins. Since C3G is such a highly purified and concentrated extract, the raw ingredient is not as black as whole rice. Therefore the mask itself is not “black”. In addition to the C3G, Molecular Rice Mask is comprised of a large group of antioxidant botanicals which coincidentally created Molecular Rice Mask’s beautiful color. This BioColour is a perfect example that small amounts of botanicals may not be enticing, but once you blend all of these ‘parts’ to create the ‘whole’, the most amazing textures, color and skin care benefits are born and trump all skin care brands. Interested in rice? If so, start enjoying the unique experience and beautiful results that can only be found in Tecniche’s Molecular Rice Mask.
Molecular Rice Mask will not only calm, cool and soothe, it will also improve skin health and vibrancy, while reaping the botanical, anthocyaninrich and anti-aging benefits of black rice.

The harmful effects of outdoor and indoor environments (air pollution, UVA/UVB, chemicals, etc.) are extensive. People that live in areas where there is more or less exposure to sun can affect their Circadian Rhythm of cell renewal. Effects on the skin include dryness, premature aging, skin rashes, eczema, poor/slow healing, and acne.
A certain percentage of people have reactions to various stimuli (such as natural/artificial compounds, animals, greenery, foods, cleaning agents). If they come into contact with these stimuli, they can experience a range of mild to harsh skin reactions, or "allergic sensitization". Conditions such as dermatitis and eczema can be the outcome of these reactions.
Those dealing with health challenges frequently have very sensitive skin, from both the condition itself and the medications to treat it. Whether Viral (ex: Shingles or Roseola); Gastric(ex: Celiac or Crohn’s); Motor Neuron(ex: Lou Gehrig’s or Parkinson’s); Metabolic(ex:Thyroid or Diabetes); Cancer; Auto-immune(ex: Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Scleroderma)--- all of these can cause the skin to experience one or more of the following conditions: dry, itchy, inflamed, irritated, neuropathy, hyper-pigmented, photosensitive, rashes, blisters and sores.
A skin condition that results from a sensitivity due to a likely a combination of factors, one being the over-application of topicals containing irritants, usually on a daily basis. Regular exfoliation using acids or manual means can disrupt or thin the skin barrier and allow for deeper penetration of these irritants, accelerating this process even more.
The Molecular Rice Mask....is a winner....very nice and soothing no stinging
I like the Molecular Rice Mask so far . Clients say it feels cooling and refreshing. It seems to absorb quickly and I haven't always removed it. I have used it various times in the facial and like it most as post microdermabrasion.
I liked the fact that the Molecular Rice Mask was creamy but light, the blue color makes it look soothing and inviting. It felt like the product was readily absorbed into the skin, almost leaving no residue, making it easy to remove. Plus, it did not give me any type of sensitive reaction. A winner all the way around!
Although I have never been “officially” diagnosed with Rosacea, I am sure that I have it. I cleansed my face with Foaming Plantae Wash, followed with Jojoba Polish. I applied the Molecular Rice Mask with a brush, and was immediately pleased by how cool it felt on my skin. While it was on my skin I went in the shower and then removed it after 10 minutes in the shower. The mask rinsed off easily and completely. My skin felt calmer and was soft and smooth. I followed with Joy Mist, Restore and C serums, Intrinsic Eye Serum and Intrinsic Moisturizer.
