The sheet material is important because it helps lock the mask’s essence into your skin, giving active ingredients time to absorb without evaporating. Various materials have been developed which allow sheet masks to adhere seamlessly to your face and deliver serum evenly.
These use either vegetable materials (like bamboo or cotton) or other natural fabrics, like wool. Natural fiber sheets have good adhesion and tightening. Afterward, they help skin feel extremely moisturized and nourished, so making this material a popular choice for many mask sheets.
In these materials, the mask essence is solidified and molded into a mask shape. One of the most common types of gel mask is the hydrogel mask, which allows the cooling essence to dissolve and absorb against the warmth of your skin. Since the essence in synthetic gel sheets is not in a liquid state, it doesn’t melt or drip. however, this can make the gel feel less moisturizing than fiber masks./p>
In recent years, innovative sheets made of both hydrogel and natural cellulose fiber have gained in popularity. Cellulose, a natural protein found in the cell walls of plants, offers excellent adhesion with exceptionally non-irritating, nourishing, and moisturizing benefits.
MEDIHEAL offers several masks which use a charcoal-coated radiant fiber sheet. This material reflects natural body heat back into the skin as far-infrared rays, which help release impurities and activate the skin. Additionally, this material’s anion effects help enhance its moisturizing and brightening effects.
