    Unlock Your Youth in 15 Minutes: a Science-Backed “Lipomask” Offers the Right Amount of Everything

    The sensitive skin population is most likely to remain loyal to a particular product for
    a long time, and also has the highest demands with regard to product quality. When
    changes occur in an external environment, corresponding changes will occur in
    delicate skin, such as dehydration, peeling, redness, swelling, and pruritus. If proper care is not administered, these changes may result in accelerated aging. TCI’s cosmet-
    ics facility is the only facility that has received OECD Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) accreditation for the execution of cell and skin irritation tests to confirm non-toxicity. Hence,TCI products are 100% safe and non-irritating. TCI product range is guaran-
    teed to be free from 7 major types of additives: artificial fragrances, artificial colors, alcohol, parabens, petroleum-based surfactants, mineral oil and biological hormones.
    Therefore, your additive-free masks are just like another layer of skin, and can be
    applied at any time!

    For several years now, Asian beauty has been the trend to follow in the cosmetics world. In particular, sheet masks have become a new beauty phenomenon, popping up all over celebrities’ social media accounts and big brands’ fashion campaigns. There’s good reason for this, since these masks brighten, tighten, and hydrate the skin, leaving users looking beautiful in a flash. Plus, consumers do not have to change their skin care routine to receive the benefits from these masks.


    The rare wild orchid species of Taiwan’s East Coast are delicate yet tenacious. Experiments have proven that the Young® Orchid stem cell extract can increase the expression of genes related to hyaluronic acid synthesis in the human body, and possesses excellent antioxidant properties. These features facilitate skin protection, preserve the skin’s moisture content, and enhances skin defense. In addition, it provides long-lasting hydration and regulates the water content of the skin surface.


    Abandon all inhibitions in the accepting caress of the coastal wonders; discover your enthusiasm for life with the scent of the infinite ocean! The tranquility of a smooth sandy beach can change the molecular chemistry of our body. The motion of the ocean waves yields negative ions; negative ions speeds up our body’s absorption of oxygen. Negative ions also balance serotonin levels, and serotonin is the body’s mood and stress display substance. This is why scientists have associated the beach experience with mental wellbeing and overall energy, health and happiness; it may even improve the troubles of irregular sleepers.


    Osmotic pressure is the force that drives the balance in intracellular and extracellular fluid concentrations. Thus, direct absorption can occur in cells, as the osmotic pressure prevents cell damage due to excessively high or low pressures. Nutrients required by the skin can be replenished instantly, and the skin’s normal circulation can be maintained.


    Instant relief for dryness and itching due to skin dehydration! Every day, people are exposed to severe air pollution and omni- present irritants in the environment. Thus, it is important to care for the skin by soothing the tightness and discomfort caused by irritants. Camellia sinensis extract provides a soothing and calming effect. Glycosyl trehalose forms a special protective membrane on cell surfaces, which protects skin structures from damage and insulates the skin against external irritants. It gives you instant relief through rapid anti inflammatory and anti-itching effects.

    Scientific tests have shown that the moisturizing effect of Lipomask™ is not only better than that of a general mask (by 18 percent) but also long-lasting.

    Indeed, sheet masks boost skin-care and give immediate, visible results. According to Google, “masking” is currently the top skin-care trend on the Internet. A 2015 Transparency Market Research report on the evolution of the sheetmask market stated that this market has reached US$160.4 million, with growth expected to reach US$336.7 million by 2024. In short, the sheetmask market represents a huge opportunity for cosmetics brands.

    Some distinguishing factors of sheet masks include their feel, fit, and functions. For those looking to give this latest skin-care craze a try, it’s important that they know the latest information when choosing the best sheet mask for the skin. Recently, TCI, a core partner of over 350 brands in 42 countries in the nutraceutical and cosmeceutical industries, introduced a campaign called “Unlock Your Youth,” which illustrates in detail the newest trends and most important facts in choosing the right sheet mask.

    Backed by science and proven results, “Unlock Your Youth” focuses on 2 key topics:

    1. The ingredients your skin really needs.
    2. The extent your skin really does absorb ingredients.

    It must be remembered that a mask is a vehicle that delivers active ingredients to the skin to improve skin quality. Our skin really does absorb ingredients, but only to a certain extent. Now, however, the use of occlusive dressings, which are air- and water-tight trauma medical dressings used in first aid, have led to an advanced breakthrough in the penetration and absorption of active ingredients by the skin. When implemented in sheet masks, these masksbecome more conductive and help the skin to fully absorb the effective ingredients more efficiently. Although in recent years a “less is more” philosophy has often been advised for beauty routines, TCI has delivered proven results that speak for themselves: “more is more,” and your skin will glow!

    Implementing occlusive dressings is only the beginning. TCI has also developed Lipomask™, a technology that uses microemulsion to form a spherical vesicle with a phospholipid bilayer, creating a structure that is similar to a cell membrane. The lipophilic ability of the outer layer of the liposome enables it to quickly penetrate the skin and effectively release the active ingredients. Scientific tests have shown that the moisturizing effect of Lipomask™ is not only better than that of a general mask (by 18 percent) but also long-lasting. In vitro test results have also shown that Lipomask™ serum quickly penetrates within 5 minutes, which is far better than general mask essence. After using Lipomask™ for 8 hours, the moisture effect is 20 percent higher than that of a general mask.

    According to TCI, Lipomask™ is the result of various consumer-driven initiatives. Thanks to scientific and technical improvements, Lipomask™ delivers the right amount of actives for effective absorption by the skin. In addition, all Lipomask™ series are produced in TCI‘s S11 environmentally-friendly factory, which has been certified with LEED Gold Certification.

    In this dynamic industry where people are longing for new products that make a provable difference, planning and evaluating for consumer-brand challenges has enabled OEM/ODM manufacturers like TCI to develop more effective products and bring them to market successfully.
