Hydrogel Facial Sheet Masks, a Treat for your Skin

As a saloon instructor I was assigned to prepare a tutorial on Korean’s facial sheet mask materials. Fortunately, I got an opportunity to experience these innovations as I took a part time sales girl job in a local Korean beauty product shop those days. The first batch of product that I received from the distributer comprises of a bunch of hydrogel facial sheet masks. The term hydrogel is novel to me, so I planned a research on the material as my first tutorial lesson. I purposely scroll the Skin18 site to dig out some new hydrogel products in Korean skin care market and was surprised to see the throng of dynamic brands.

With the introduction of renowned BB cream to the western world in 2011, Korean skin care products have become best thing since sliced bread. Ranging from simple lotions to innovative ampoules and sheet masks a swarm of Korean skin care products hit the market. The facial sheet mask is the prime among them as they deliver comprehensive facial treatment in no cost. One of the profound materials of this sheet mask is hydrogel

Understanding Hydrogel Masks:

Hydrogel products are a collection of polymeric substances, of hydrophilic nature, making them capable of holding vast proportion of water in their three-dimensionalstructure. Synthetic hydrogels were preferred over natural hydrogel (collagen, gelatin and agars) due to their efficient water absorption aptitude. In sheet mask formulations hydrogels refer to its production process, which amalgams manifold water-soluble polymers to form a fabric with a gel texture. Skin18 offers, Nature Republic Snail Solution Hydrogel Mask - Green Caviar is one of skin18 bestselling brand for only US$5.80.  Under Nature Republic, there are also three other kinds of Hydrogel Mask which goes for 4 as the whole set:  Nature Republic Snail Solution Hydrogel Mask - Pearl, Nature Republic Snail Solution Hydrogel Mask - Red Ginseng, Nature Republic Snail Solution Hydrogel Mask - Snail

The Korean skin care Hydro-gel facial masks are normally parceled as two-part arrangements, with top and bottom halves placed separately.  Hydrogel is a material that will attach to your face completely to maximize the absorption process of essence to your face which is totally different then cotton mask.  Basically, the attachment is so close that air bubbles are hard to get inside so the mask absorption process will be a complete one.

Retailed in the price range of $10 a water-soluble gel- mask pack holds a high content essence. Active components which are of natural or organic origin intensely penetrate into the skin. At Skin18, The Beaubeaute Hydrogel Essence Beauty Facial Mask (Placenta) and beaubeaute Hydrogel Essence Beauty Facial Mask (Collagen) costs only US$4.50.
