About Molecular Rice Mask


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.

Challenges addressed by Molecular Rice Mask



As we age, skin loses its elasticity and becomes thinner and more fragile, which accelerates the formation and deepening of wrinkles. Aging will also cause changes in overall skin texture/tone and instigate the development of age spots/hyperpigmentation.


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.



Hormonal changes during different stages of our lives (such as from menopause, pregnancy, birth control pills) can cause various reactions. Skin type, sensitivity threshold, and scent/fragrance tolerance might change during these stages

Skin Allergies

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. 

Health-Challenged SkinĀ®

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.



Stress has an unfortunate cyclical relationship with skin - stress causes skin problems and skin problems causes stress. Stress affects skin by aggravating skin conditions such as premature aging, eczema, psoriasis, acne, allergies, and rashes.

Temporary Cosmetic Intolerance Syndrome

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.


What Customers Say About Molecular Rice Mask

The Molecular Rice Mask is truly a winner - very soothing and zero stinging.  Thank you!

It’s a win-win for Paula!


I’m an esthetician and recently started using the Molecular Rice Mask on clients.  They say they love it, and that it feels cool and refreshing.  I have used it various times during facials and have found that I like it most as post-microdermabrasion soothing.  I also really like how quickly it absorbs into the skin.

Thank you, Susan! We know skin can be inflamed throughout a facial, so we are delighted to hear how the Molecular Rice Mask is helping your clients.


I like that the Molecular Rice Mask is creamy yet light, and the blue color makes it look soothing and inviting.  It felt like the mask was easily absorbed into my skin, leaving almost no residue and making for easy removal.  Plus, it didn’t give me any type of sensitive reaction.  A winner all the way around! 

That is nice to hear, Betty! Winner, winner, chicken dinner! 


I have rosacea and use several of your products in my daily routine to keep it at bay.  I clean my face with the Plantae Foaming Wash and the Jojoba Polish.  I then apply the Molecular Rice Mask with a brush (I was immediately pleased with how cool it feels on my skin!), and get in the shower.  I easily rinse the mask off after 10 minutes or so, and my skin always feels calmer, softer, and smooth.  After that, I use the Joy Mist, Restore and SupremeC Serums, the Intrinsic Eye Serum and the Intrinsic Face Cream.  I love it all!

Your Tecniche skincare arsenal is a perfect lineup of products that promote healthy skin, which translates into radiant beauty. Thank you, Marsha!
