So to get round the what’s-what and the how’s-how, I’ve created some basic FAQs to help you out. Here goes:
What exactly is OdacitÃ© SYNERGIE?
It’s a mixture of powder to be used as a masque treatment. Think clay masque. Mud masque. Mud pack. Detox masque.

Kaolin Clay, Bentonite Clay, Papain Powder (Papaya Enzmes), Lactobacillus Acidophilus (Probiotics), Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Activated Charcoal, Tartaric Acid (Aha Fruit Acid), Malic Acid (Fruit Acid).
Ingredients are 100% natural, vegan, GMO- and gluten-free.
What do these ingredients do?

Papaya Enzmes + Fruit Acids To Peel

Vitamin C + Papaya Enzymes To Brighten
Frequent treatment fades and prevents brown spots to even out skin tone.
Vitamin C + Probiotics To Firm
Finally, it provides the skin with the support it needs to stay firm and youthful.
How do you use OdacitÃ© SYNERGIE?
You should use this as a masque treatment after you’ve properly cleansed your face.
Now, there are many ways to create your skin cocktail with OdacitÃ© SYNERGIE. The most basic is with water. If water is too boring for you, use milk, yogurt, fruit juice, kefir water, milk kefir, or honey.
To supercharge your treatment, add a drop of your favorite OdacitÃ© Pure Elements Serum Concentrate.
Whip the combination into a creamy paste that you can spread on your face and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes to dry. Wash off, then tone and moisturize as per normal.
How often should you use OdacitÃ© SYNERGIE?
No more than twice a week or your skin might suffer dryness.
Is OdacitÃ© SYNERGIE suitable for all skin types?
The masque treatment should work for all skin types but I would recommend those with sensitive skin to be extra careful. If you have this skin type, it’s best you keep your customization simple using water only. In addition, always conduct a patch test before applying on your entire face.
What can you expect after using OdacitÃ© SYNERGIE?
Definitely clearer skin that is non-drying but smoother and more supple even upon first usage. Skin tone might even improve for some who do not exfoliate their skin as often.
For those with acne issues, this treatment can unclog your pores and calm your breakouts.
My experience with OdacitÃ© SYNERGIE
I haven’t done a detox masque treatment for awhile now so this product was a refreshing change for me. My skin definitely showed signs of detox with decongested pores after the first two times of usage. But because I exfoliate my skin regularly, I don’t see too much difference to my skin tone. What I did get was skin that feels noticeably smoother and supple though.
As my primary concern was unsightly brown spots, I did a combination of OdacitÃ© SYNERGIE + milk + a drop of OdacitÃ© Pure Elements Pa+G Serum Concentrate. I also tried honey as a variation to milk but honey is sticky so that combination was less ideal for me.
My thoughts on OdacitÃ© SYNERGIE
I like the whole concept of OdacitÃ© SYNERGIE]. It’s unusual and it appeals to the DIY fanatic in me.
The idea behind whipping up my skin cocktail means I can vary the treatment according to my needs. And I definitely enjoy customizing the product without have to jump through hoops.
The cute packaging also speaks to me. The product comes complete with a small metal bucket, a cute little metal whipper and a face brush to spread the masque. Included in the box is also a Beauty Recipe Guide with different suggestions to customize your masque treatments. Thoughtful much? I say they’re too clever.
Update: some of you have raise concerns regarding using clay with the metal accessories. Here’s what OdacitÃ© says: “Steel is an alloy of iron therefore not being a pure element, and is not technically a metal but a variation of one instead. Stainless steel equipment is usually used in the mining of clay in order to keep it from absorbing heavy metals while it is being harvested. The stainless steel bowl/whisk is totally safe to use and will not decrease the clay’s potency.”
