We're not talking about what it takes to cover a wound, but about eye patches. "They create an occlusion that makes the pores dilate, allowing the fast and deep absorption of the moisturizing and regenerating active ingredients contained in the formulas", explains Antonino Di Pietro, dermatologist and director of the Vita Cutis Dermoclinic Institute. Concentrated formulas that give the so-called express result: immediately after their use the skin of the contour appears relaxed, toned and luminous.

The first to enter the market, and which have now become classics, were those of non-woven fabric (made with cotton or silk fibers), imbibite of the moisturizing and nourishing active ingredients necessary for the skin to keep soft and elastic.

Next evolution were the versions of bio cellulose. This substance is a polysaccharide, which is a very common organic compound in nature because it is the support texture of plant tissues. Thanks to its hygroscopic characteristics (it absorbs moisture by increasing its volume) this fiber is used in medicine for moisturizing bandages that mitigate redness and skin irritation.

More recently, the hydrogel, a very light and transparent material made of polymer chains of molecules dispersed in water, also used in the medical field for the dressing of burns, has entered the market of face sheet masks. The substances that can be included in these formulas are plant derivatives of red algae, carob and agar agar.

The use is very simple: they are arranged accurately on the entire surface of the eye contour and are done for 15-30 minutes, a period of time necessary to release the functional ingredients contained.
