Sheet masks are typically cotton or fibre sheets which are pre-cut into the shape of your face, neck and décolletage, hands and feet and soaked in liquid formulas that are made to treat the skin.
Sheet masks are very effective in delivering nutrients to the skin due to its close dermal contact. Depending on the ingredients used in the formula, sheet masks typically provide intense hydration and nourishment, and often helps repair damaged skin cells.
Sheet masks are one of the most effective delivery systems of nutrients to the skin. Skin Republic sheet masks are super hydrated - they’re literally drenched - and heavily infused with ingredients. The mask’s ingredients are evenly distributed onto the sheet mask to ensure that every part of the skin receives an equal application of the serum.
When applied, the Skin Republic sheet mask allows the skin to breathe acting as a ‘second skin’. This helps the skin absorb the serum faster and more efficiently than traditional masks and creams. The sheet masks also prevent bacteria and dirt being passed onto your skin which could be the case when applying cream masks.
With cream masks, applying and removing can be quite a hassle, however the Skin Republic sheet mask is easily applied and removed with no messy clean up required.
The top layer of the skin is a highly effective barrier to the absorption of skin care ingredients deep into the dermis. As such, scientists developed the Transdermal Delivery System to ensure efficient absorption of ingredients into the skin.
The use of the Transdermal Delivery System through sheet masks has enabled Skin Republic to develop a range of skin care products focused on delivering the most advanced skin care ingredients deeply and effectively into the skin. Initially developed in the U.S. in the 1980’s, the Transdermal Delivery System (TDS) was developed by pharmaceutical companies to allow patients to apply a patch to their skin to deliver a specific dose of medication through the dermis.
