Home Cosmetic Science Talk Formulating cucumber peel off face mask

  • cucumber peel off face mask

    Posted by vinitaj3 on February 4, 2014 at 12:50 pm

    I have found several base formulas for cucumber peel off face masks.

    All of them use Poly Vinyl Alcohol as the film former (which later can be peeled off when dries)
    I did my home work and found out that I need to use a certain grade (PVA-224)
    I haven’t been able to find a proper supplier for this grade of PVA for skincare applications.
    Kindly help me out.

    Selvol has different grades, Kuraray is there and think Du Pont has it too. Try them, I found Selvol very cooperative. You can put your request thru Innovadex, quite a site.

    Kuraray refused to send me some saying their PVA was not for medical purposes.
