About Sheet Masks
Sheet masks have exploded in the cosmetic market, due to the ease of use and widely available formats. Formulated using extremely thin sheets of different materials such as cotton-wool, coconut pulp, tissue, gel, paper, microfibres, cellulose, hydrogels and even organic plant materials. The mask is pre-made in the facial shape, with eye & nostril cut outs, to easily apply to the face. The mask is then embedded with concentrates of serums to be absorbed into the skin on application. The masks are individually packaged and excellent for retail and consumer use.
The popular choice of mask for retail and end users, allowing access to intense beauty care at home and on the go. Sheet masks prevent evaporation of the serum and helps the concentrate seep into the skin cells. These masks can offer hydrating, moisturising, balancing, calming and brightening of the skin.
Sheet masks can be found almost anywhere nowadays, so it is critical to understand the importance of ingredients and materials used. Cheap and inexpensive sheet masks, unfortunately are likely to provide minimum benefit and add waste to the environment. Sustainable materials and high concentrate of serums are essential for the benefit of your skin and the environment.
Using a sheet mask correctly, is essential to the benefits of this ritual. Sheet masks need to fit the shape of the face seamlessly, allowing every part of the skin to absorb the serum embedded in the mask. Using a sheet mask according to instructions is crucial to attaining the benefit of the mask. A sheet mask should not be left on the skin longer than the intended time, as often this can counter act the benefits of the mask. The sheet itself will start drying out and re-absorbing the moisture from the skin – causing the skin to dry. Before any sheet mask, the skin is required to be cleansed and toned before application, as the sheet mask does not have any cleansing benefit on the skin. Choosing the correct mask, with the right ingredients to target the skin issue required is also an essential to achieve the desired results.
Tissue Sheet Masks
The most commonly known sheet mask, with cut-outs for eyes, nose and lips. These sheets are a hot trend right now. The masks are saturated with selected ingredients to assist with specific issues or conditions. It is stretched to fit over the face and left in place for 15 – 20 minutes.
Hydrogel Sheet Masks
The texture of these masks makes them unique and fresh. They contain Carrageenans (natural polymers that constitute the cell walls of various red seaweeds) and sulphated D-galactose. Together, with water, they form a filmogenic gel that provides better diffusion of actives to the cutaneous tissues. It adapts well to different head and face shapes, like a second a skin. Easy to use, the masks are suitable to all facial shapes and they fit like a second skin.
Biocellulose Sheet Masks
Biocellulose masks offer a new experience of care that combines Innovation, Comfort and Performance.
Excellent Absorbency: These masks have a very good permeability due to their nanostructure which gives them a high absorption capacity. The biocellulose fibres are able to absorb a large amount of liquid – up to 100 times their dry weight, which is about 10 times more than classic nonwoven masks.
Perfect Adhesion to Skin: The organic cellulose fibres measure 20 nm in diameter, up to 33 times less than nonwoven masks! This fine texture creates a film which clings to the skin without stickiness. The consistency is such that the fibre diameter is less than certain lines or wrinkles on the skin: the active-scattering is optimal for more than 20 minutes as opposed to nonwoven masks that tend to peel around that time.
High Quality Support: Biocellulose masks are incredibly flexible, with high tear-texture and are highly malleable due to the nanostructure of biocellulose and if needs be, they can be removed and repositioned without affecting their support.
More Than Cosmetic Support: Due to its incredibly soft texture which provides natural fresh and unique comfort to the skin, it delivers real beauty support akin to a treatment in itself.
Leaf Sheet Mask
A very special collaboration between 2 leading French companies resulted in a new beauty ritual that highlights the amazing benefits of plants: the vegetal mask Leaf mask®. This “Leaf Mask” is composed of fibres and plant extracts. This process draws on the plants virtues without altering their properties in order to use them in the mask. Once rehydrated with a lotion or water, the mask adheres to the skin, thus giving it the naturalness of the plant.
