According to the application of the Facial mask material, all kinds of diversified materials are being explored and applied, and new membrane cloths are emerging in an endless stream. At present, the membrane cloth materials on the market mainly include non-woven cloth, silk cloth, Tencel cloth, biofiber membrane, bamboo charcoal fiber membrane, cotton fiber membrane, pectin fiber membrane and so on. Membrane cloths made of different materials differ in thickness, softness, breathability, liquid holding capacity, transparency, fit and so on.
Overview and characteristics of mask cloth
1. Non-woven fabric
The most common mask cloth on the market today is non-woven, which is made by physically bonding the fibers together directly. Nonwoven fabrics are light, soft and tactile; they are stable, non-toxic and non-irritating.
2. Silk Mask Cloth
Silk mask cloth raw material is not silk, but the regeneration of cellulose fibers called copper ammonia fiber, due to the thin and transparent as cicada wing characteristics of the name. Silk mask cloth adsorption is strong, can carry more serum; soft and silky, breathable, serum penetration effect is good.
3. Tencel Mask Cloth
With renewable resources – cellulose in trees as raw materials, and the biodegradable film cloth made of Lysol fiber, Tencel mask has the advantages of light and invisible, perfect fit, good water absorption, and can absorb 8 times of its own volume of serum.
4. Ultra-fine fiber membrane cloth
China’s textile industry that the monofilament fineness less than 0.33dtex fiber defined as ultrafine fiber, the density is much lower than the conventional ordinary fibers, and thus its woven film cloth has a soft touch skin-friendly, capillary-like structure to carry more essence, deep penetration of the skin.
5. Black film cloth
Black film cloth includes bamboo charcoal film cloth, long charcoal film cloth and biomass graphene film cloth, three from the adsorption, far infrared emission, antibacterial and antimicrobial, generating negative ions, the rate of liquid, environmentally friendly degradation of six aspects of the comparison, the biomass graphene mask is the best performance.
6. Herbal Plant Mask
Herbal film cloth is a combination of herbal extract fiber and Tencel fiber, such as tea film cloth, wormwood film cloth, black tea film cloth, wild rose film cloth, plant protein film cloth and so on. Membrane cloth with its own efficacy, mesh fiber breathable and comfortable, the production process does not add irritating ingredients, safe and healthy. The membrane cloth is biodegradable and environmentally friendly.
7. Gel-type membrane cloth
Gel masks have four main characteristics: crystal clear, full of water storage, adsorption of heavy metals, soft and smooth. For example: crystal clear gel Tencel mask and crystal clear gel bamboo fiber mask.
8. Functional Mask
Membrane development so far, a variety of new membrane cloth has been endless. Such as niacinamide membrane cloth, hyaluronic acid membrane cloth, chlorophyll membrane cloth, milk protein membrane cloth, milk skin membrane cloth, high elasticity mask, seaweed fiber membrane cloth and so on.
Membrane cloth is often associated with good and bad preparation technology, in the high degree of consumer concern, the market appeared a variety of mask preparation technology. The main promotion of penetration technology, emulsification technology, freeze-drying technology, the following on these technologies to do a description.
Facial Mask Fabric Preparation Technology and Product Cases
1. Osmosis promotion technology
Penetration promoting technology is categorized into biological penetration promoting technology, pharmacy penetration promoting technology, chemical penetration promoting technology and physical penetration promoting technology.
Bio-penetrant is to interfere with the skin metabolic process to achieve the penetration effect. It inhibits the synthesis of stratum corneum lipids or promotes the metabolism of skin barrier lipids. Bio-permeable agents usually refer to endogenous substances or their derivatives, including hyaluronic acid, permeability promoting peptides, amino acid derivatives and ceramides and their analogs.
Pharmacological technology is fast developing and rich in content, and is the most applied transdermal promotion technology in cosmetics, which is widely used in ingredient carriers and encapsulated slow-release active substance technology. Including nanotechnology, liposomes, microcapsules and so on. It can improve the stability of cosmetic raw materials in the formulation, enhance the permeability of certain ingredients and so on.
In addition to biological permeation technology and pharmacological permeation technology, chemical permeation technology and physical permeation technology are also common technologies in the cosmetics industry, both of which can be used to improve the permeability of active ingredients through the skin.
2. Emulsification technology
Emulsification technology plays an important role in cosmetic preparation, and the choice of emulsifier and preparation process directly determine the quality, safety and performance of the product. In the process of mask production, the essence on the surface of the mask needs to be emulsified to improve the effect of the mask.
Commonly used emulsification methods, such as trans-phase emulsification, HLB temperature emulsification, D-phase emulsification, etc., fully and effectively utilize surfactants to prepare stable emulsions, but are very dependent on the type and ability of the emulsifier.
Emulsification technology is becoming more and more mature, new emulsification technologies such as microcapsule technology, nano-liposome technology, Pickering emulsification technology, etc. have been successfully applied to the end products and gained better market feedback.
3. Freeze-drying technology
In the application of facial mask, freeze-drying technology is mainly used to freeze the high concentration of active essence in the vacuum aseptic environment at -196℃ to -40℃, to completely dehydrate the active ingredients to the solid state, and then use freeze-drying film cloth to seal the active essence in the nitrogen environment to be completely preserved in the dormant compartment, which can maximize the solution to the problem of poor stability of the biological actives at room temperature, and ensure the original high vitality and stability.
Strong degree of locking the freshness of highly active ingredients: under freeze-drying technology, almost 99% of the water in the mask will be extracted, and the active ingredients can be effectively sealed and fully released in the presence of water.
Zero preservatives, safety and non-irritation: freeze-drying technology uses low-temperature extraction and vacuum drying to isolate water and air, so there is no need to add preservatives to prevent the growth of bacteria like traditional patch masks.
No matter what kind of mask, in addition to the ingredients, the material is also very important. Different ingredients are combined with corresponding materials to form unique products. Choosing a mask, in addition to looking at the material, formula, ingredients, technology, the most important thing is to suit yourself. The most important thing is that it is suitable for you. The best thing is that you can use it comfortably and with good effect.
