Origin of Mask

Origin of Mask

Masks are an intensive skincare product that cover the face to increase absorption of nutrients and quickly improve skin’s condition.

The use of face masks in beauty and cosmetics dates back to the ancient times of the Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians.


Records from Greece show that women used to grind grain, rub the powder on their faces, and rinse with milk the following day to renew their skin. In ancient Egypt, Cleopatra reportedly treated her face twice a week with nourishing mud
masks from the sea. As our cosmetics industry developed into the modern age, this traditional beauty secret became commercialized. Face masks enjoyed a notable golden age of popularity in the late 1990s and early 2000s.


In 2009, MEDIHEAL launched a new era of face masks in skincare, harnessing cutting-edge science and technology to create the innovative multitasking masks of today.
