PVA + Algin Peel Off?
I’m trying to reverse engineer several peel-off masks and I’ve reached the tearing out hair stage. I doubt I can trust the ILs- but two of the peel off masks base their product on a patent involving tetrasodium pyrophosphate. All the masks contain both PVA and Algin, but one doesn’t use the same method and has ascorbic acid listed above PVA? I would seriously doubt AA is above 1% but that means PVA would be 1% or less..
Here’s what I tried last:
- heat to 85C until no PVA lumps remaing, then begin my cooldown
algin (hydagen 558) 3
- these I add pretty much right after as a premix
Euxyl 9010 1
SDA 40B 10
Ascorbic Acid 0.1
-this final phase gets added below 40C
This forms a film, but it doesn’t peel off nicely like the benchmark which dries and feels to me like a traditional PVA mask- I’m not sure I should mention the product line explicitly but I am restricted to keeping the product ‘95% natural’ (excluding water). Am I being lied to, or am I missing some piece of information on the synergy of PVA and algin?
