Sheet Mask Materials

The sheet material is important because it helps lock the mask’s essence into your skin,
giving active ingredients time to absorb without evaporating. Various materials have been
developed which allow sheet masks to adhere seamlessly to your face and deliver serum evenly.

  • Natural fiber sheets

    These use either vegetable materials (like bamboo or cotton)
    or other natural fabrics, like wool. Natural fiber sheets have
    good adhesion and tightening. Afterward, they help skin feel
    extremely moisturized and nourished, so making this
    material a popular choice for many mask sheets.
  • Synthetic gel sheets

    In these materials, the mask essence is solidified and
    molded into a mask shape. One of the most common
    types of gel mask is the hydrogel mask, which allows
    the cooling essence to dissolve and absorb against
    the warmth of your skin. Since the essence in synthetic
    gel sheets is not in a liquid state, it doesn’t melt or drip.
    however, this can make the gel feel less moisturizing
    than fiber masks.
  • Natural cellulose
    gel sheets

    In recent years, innovative sheets made of both
    hydrogel and natural cellulose fiber have gained in
    popularity. Cellulose, a natural protein found in the
    cell walls of plants, offers excellent adhesion with
    exceptionally non-irritating, nourishing, and
    moisturizing benefits.
  • Special sheet materials

    MEDIHEAL offers several masks which use a charcoal-coated
    radiant fiber sheet. This material reflects natural body heat
    back into the skin as far-infrared rays,
    which help release impurities and activate the skin.
    Additionally, this material’s anion effects
    help enhance its moisturizing and brightening effects.
