Ultimate Recovery Bio-Cellulose Mask with Zinc and Kelp Extract
This hydrating mineral sheet mask is enriched with zinc and hyaluronic acid to detoxify and deeply moisturise delicate skin. Ideal for soothing irritation, reducing inflammation, and encouraging healing after intensive skincare treatments.
The micro-thin Medik8 Ultimate Recovery Mask is made from millions of tightly-woven natural fibres. It can adhere perfectly to individual facial contours for optimum absorption of its replenishing serum.
Dry, sensitive, and tired skin is soon calmed and restored for a rejuvenated dewy appearance. Whether you’ve received a professional treatment, exfoliated too much, or experienced lots of abrasive wind and sun, this Medik8 mask could be the solution to your skincare SOS.
What are the benefits of the Ultimate Recovery Mask for my skin?
The Ultimate Recovery Mask is made from a double layer of sustainably produced bio-cellulose. These tiny flexible fibres easily adjust to the unique shape of your face, for a close yet completely comfortable fit.
This ensures that the active ingredients in the serum absorb properly, targeting fine lines in your skin. The mask is free of fragrance and alcohol, so it doesn’t irritate sensitive skin.
Intense hydration and healing
Zinc encourages your skin to heal faster, while hyaluronic acid and rockweed algae boost water reserves in the skin to restore long-term hydration. These ingredients work together to soothe sore and compromised skin.
This speed ups the natural healing process, which makes the Medik8 mask an essential treatment when your skin needs some TLC. Repair skin damage and restore your glow!
When using the Ultimate Recovery Bio-Cellulose Mask, it should calm inflammation, provide long-lasting moisture, and plump fine lines to reduce their visibility. The relaxing and deeply hydrating treatment results in soft and smooth skin while restoring its natural barrier to protect against irritants.
How do Medik8 Ultimate Recovery Bio Masks work?
This Medik8 mask is made of biodegradable natural fibres formed through the fermentation of coconut water, woven into a thin but incredibly tough sheet that can hold many times its weight in liquid while resisting breakage and tears. The mask adheres tightly to the curves of the face, locking in moisture closely to ensure deep hydration and plumpen the skin.
Hyaluronic acid is the heavyweight fighter when it comes to boosting hydration. This humectant draws up to 1,000 times its weight in water to each molecule, helping to absorb and retain moisture for seriously nourished and supple skin.
Repairing and protecting ingredients
The Medik8 Ultimate Recovery Mask also uses a hybrid version of the mineral zinc, called Zinc PCA, which regulates oil production and promotes a healthy enzyme balance.
In addition to regulating sebum levels and encouraging skin repair, zinc also has antibacterial properties, protecting skin against infection and warding off blemishes.
Another key ingredient is Norwegian kelp extract, a type of brown algae that is rich in important antioxidants. Its unique blend of minerals, vitamins, and amino acids can strengthen your fragile skin cell membranes.
This helps to repair damaged cells and protect against further damage. It also promotes moisture retention, improving your skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Medik8 Ultimate Recovery Mask FAQs
Standard cellulose is an organic plant-derived compound used in many products as an emulsifier and stabiliser. In skincare, bio-cellulose is a synthetically produced fibre, extremely thin yet incredibly strong. It can hold up to 100 times its weight in fluids – perfect for serum-infused sheet masks.
As it’s easy to produce and biodegradable, bio-cellulose is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional mass-manufactured sheet mask materials. The fibres are fine yet resilient, capable of being woven into a pliable sheet that can adhere perfectly to the changing contours of the face.
Bio-cellulose masks attract and retain liquids without drying out, ensuring that every individual Medik8 Ultimate Recovery Mask stays moist and ready to use. The bio-cellulose fibres evenly disperse the product across the skin, providing a refreshing sensation while deeply hydrating.
Cellulose gum is another natural ingredient derived from plants, often used in foods as a thickener and emulsifier. It’s actually very versatile, found in everything from toothpaste to household cleaning products. It’s used in skincare products like sunscreen, and cosmetics such as foundation.
It works as a thickening and stabilising agent in lotions, creams, and serums – like the one that each Medik8 Ultimate Recovery Mask is soaked in. It neutralises smells and keeps the product fresh and potent, helping to prolong its shelf life and improve the application experience when you do use it.
All of this is to say: yes, cellulose gum is safe for skin. This particular ingredient should not cause any irritation. If you have concerns about cellulose gum, this may be because you’ve heard about it being a bad additive in food. We can only speak on skincare, in which case, it’s completely safe.
From kelp to bladderwrack, seaweed is somewhat of a buzzword in skincare. Seaweed is a marine macroalgae that’s rich in nutrients and moisturising humectants. It’s a natural source of skin-improving vitamins and minerals like zinc, magnesium, Omega-3s, and Vitamins B, C, E, and K.
Seaweed is popular in anti-ageing skincare because all of these valuable ingredients can help to repair, protect, and maintain a strong and healthy skin barrier. It also contains antioxidants like fucoxanthin, which can even help damaged cells to recover. So, say goodbye to dry and sagging skin!
The many skincare benefits of ingredients like Medik8's Norwegian rockweed algae extract include increased hydration and skin cell activity for soft, smooth, and plump skin, and decreased inflammation to help heal blemishes, wounds, and hyperpigmentation. It can make your skin much stronger and healthier.
How to Apply+
Medik8 advises the use of these hydrating sheet masks following aesthetic procedures, on a weekly basis as a moisturising and restorative treatment, or simply whenever your skin requires a boost.
If you suffer from very dry and flaky skin due to a condition such as eczema or psoriasis, you can use these masks daily to reduce redness and soothe irritation from external triggers.
For the best results from your Medik8 Ultimate Recovery™ Mask, follow these directions:
1) After cleansing your face, remove the mask from its sachet and unfold it.
2) Peel away the outer protective layer from one side, then lay this side against the face.
3) Make sure that the holes for the eyes and mouth are properly aligned, then smooth the mask down against your skin.
4) Peel the remaining protective covering from the outer side of the mask, then relax for around 15 minutes while the mask does its work.
5) When the time is up, remove the mask by gently lifting it away from the skin, starting from the forehead.
6) Massage any serum remaining on the surface into your skin until fully absorbed.
The Medik8 mask should adhere closely to all areas of the face. There’s plenty of serum infused into the mask, so feel free to massage any leftover residue into the skin on your neck and décolletage as well.
