Release time:


When it comes to skin care products, Jimei's topics must be countless, from whitening to anti-aging, from freckle to anti-wrinkle, it is estimated that we can't talk all day and night, but if you want to ask about several ingredients that are often used in skin care products, they It is estimated that it will be dumbfounded. I have to mention TRIS, carbomer and HEPES here. Many people will feel strange and familiar when they see these three products, and then they can't help but go home and peek at the ingredient list. Sure enough, most skin care products contain these products. Let me focus today. Let’s talk about the roles of these three ingredients in skin care products.

TRIS - pH regulator

Our skin and hair are weakly acidic under normal conditions. The pH of the skin is about 4.5 to 6.5 (7 is neutral, less than 7 is acidic, and greater than 7 is alkaline), and the pH of hair is neutral and slightly acidic . In order to maintain the normal pH of the skin and hair, cosmetics need to maintain a certain pH, but this does not mean that cosmetics must be within the pH range of the skin. Some alkaline products can cleanse better, and some acidic products can better help the skin to renew itself. The principle is that cosmetics should not excessively destroy the skin's own acid-base balance. TRIS can act as a good pH adjuster, making products with more diverse functions possible.

HEPES-Cosmetic Penetration Enhancer

HEPES is a safe and efficient penetration enhancer for cosmetics, which can gently and quickly promote the absorption of nutrients in cosmetics with high penetration efficiency. This may be one of the reasons why many big brands of whitening, anti-aging, repairing and other products add this ingredient. HEPES is weakly acidic, which can gently destroy the desmosomes connecting keratinocytes, promote the exfoliation of the stratum corneum, smooth and soften the skin, brighten the complexion and promote whitening. The pKa is 7.48 (25°C), which is very suitable for microbial fermentation extracts to maintain activity, and helps to stabilize the activity of polypeptides, nucleic acid substances and fermentation extracts.

Carbomer - Cosmetic Thickener

There are dozens of ingredients in carbomer, each type of carbomer has slightly different characteristics and application directions, but one of its important functions is to thicken, which will be added to masks or related cosmetics. Carbomer, which has a pleasant affinity for the skin. For cosmetic manufacturers, its process is relatively simple and its stability is good, so it is also favored by cosmetic manufacturers and is widely used in lotions, creams and gels. It is not only widely used in the field of cosmetics, but also plays a unique role in epidemic prevention products - hand sanitizers. There was even a period of time when carbomer was in short supply!

After learning about these three products, I believe that you can not only talk about the efficacy of skin care products, but also talk about several commonly used ingredients.
