Sheet masks have been around for a while now and if you’re just hopping on the ride, then buckle up because there are tons of different kinds out there! From ingredients to material, you’ll find a wide variety of sheet masks to choose from! Here is a quick blog to help you see the different types of sheet mask materials!
Today, we’re going to focus on wonderful biocellulose masks (*ahem the best kind of sheet mask in our opinion hehe).
What is a Biocellulose Sheet Mask?
Long story short, biocellulose is made from bacteria (the good kind, don’t worry~). It's produced in a controlled environment where the (good) bacteria interacts with sugar and then develops biocellulose! Coconut plays a major role in the creation because it contains the minerals needed by Acetobacter Xylinum (the good bacteria) to thrive and develop!
And fun fact, biocellulose is also originally used to help treat burns and wounds, so you know it’s some legit stuff! And now, we can use it for skincare treatments!
5 Reasons Why Biocellulose is Superior!
Better for the environment and your skin
Biocellulose is a natural material that is pure and toxin-free! Remember we mentioned that it that was originally developed to help treat the skin? If that doesn’t scream safe then I’m not sure what does! Lastly, not only is it good for your skin, but it’s also 100% biodegradable! Much better for the environment compared to other sheet mask materials!
Better ingredients and absorption
So once the biocellulose fibers are woven and cut into a sheet mask, in goes the essence! ✨ FYI, this mask material is super hydrophilic (water-loving!) so it will hold water/essence much better than other sheet mask materials out there. It also retains moisture really well so essence can sink directly to your skin and assist in better absorption. YAY! Because we want all the key nutrients to go exactly where they should (A.K.A. not evaporate into the air, no thank you!😤). It’s just an overall super effective sheet mask material that you need to try. Period! 👏
Fits like a glove
Let’s just be straight up, it’s one of the best fitting masks out there! Biocellulose clings to your skin and forms to your face shape. No dripping. No slipping. So feel free to sit up and watch some shows or do your chores! The way this material adheres to the skin is truly like “second skin”! Plus, having a mask fit snuggly to the contours of your face will ensure the essence from the sheet mask is being delivered and absorbed correctly!✨😁
Best value for spa-like experience
If you think about the meticulous process of creating biocellulose and the experience you receive once you apply it... It's soooo worth. It feels like you’re getting a spa treatment right at home. A must-do is storing biocellulose masks in the fridge before you use it! It will feel refreshingly cool and stay chilled throughout your sheet masking time~ Talk about a luxurious skincare experience!
Great for oily, acne prone, and sensitive skin
Because biocellulose is natural, it can be a better option for certain skin types! The material is super breathable and non-irritating! Oily, acne-prone and sensitive skin may find that this material works better for them.
And those are all the top reasons why biocellulose is a superior mask material! So, are you ready to give biocellulose a try in your next self-care routine?
