What Are Hydrogel Masks Made of?
A hydrogel mask is basically a thicker, more water-dense version of the sheet mask. While sheet masks are often made of cotton, paper, or bamboo, hydrogel masks are made of thicker 'jelly’ materials that can hold more hydration and adhere better to the skin.
100% PURE hydrogel masks are made with 100% biodegradable ingredients, and the mask material is 95% organic aloe juice and 5% plant cellulose. Foe example our:

7 Benefits of a Hydrogel Mask
One of the best qualities of hydrogel is its ability to lock in moisture and prevent the serum from evaporating. Because of the molecular makeup of the material, it can hold up to 500 times its weight in liquids while also securely adhering to your skin allowing it to sip every last drop of abundant nourishment.
Hydrogel masks hug your skin with a snug hug-like grip to encourage deep penetration of the powerful ingredients. Some like to enhance absorption by using a tool such as a gemstone roller over top of their mask. Physically pressing the serum deeper into the skin promotes ultimate absorption.
Instead of soaking ingredients onto a piece of cotton for you to place over the top of your face, a hydrogel mask is made entirely of the ingredients that are most beneficial to your skin. Without any added fillers or unnecessary materials, hydrogel masks are made entirely of the high-potency products your skin needs.
Because collagen hydrogel masks can hold up to 500 times its weight in liquids, there is room to jam-pack them with a range of premium ingredients such as marine collagen. With such a strong cocktail of good-for-you components, your skin will instantly look and feel tighter, brighter, and more youthful.
Ease of application
It is so easy to apply a mask that is made entirely of hydrogel. Because they are slightly rigid on the outside, they maintain their form. Each piece of the mask holds a shape that takes the guesswork out of placement. All you have to do is peel the mask from the package and place it exactly where it belongs.
Whether you’re trying to repair damaged skin, detoxify your pores, or to calm red and puffy areas, there is a hydrogel face mask designed for that specific treatment. Hydrogel allows you to apply a strong dose of specialized ingredients to target specific skin issues and can be applied to your face, under eyes, neck, or décolleté area depending on where the treatment is needed.
At-home spa experience
The process of using and applying a collagen hydrogel face mask is a luxurious experience. From pretty packaging to the relaxing feeling of the cool ingredients soaking into your skin, it will feel like you’re in a high-end spa without ever having to leave the comfort of your home.
