What is the principle of hydroxyethyl acrylate in skin care products?

1. Moisturising
Hydroxyethyl Acrylate can be added to skin care products as a humectant, can increase the water content of the skin, improve the skin’s moisturising ability, prevent skin dryness, cracking and other problems.
2. Anti-aging
Hydroxyethyl Acrylate can reduce wrinkles and sagging of the skin by promoting the production of collagen, thus achieving the effect of anti-aging.
3. Improvement of skin colour
Hydroxyethyl Acrylate can promote the metabolism of the stratum corneum and accelerate the renewal of the skin, thus improving skin colour and making the skin brighter and smoother.

the efficacy of hydroxyethyl acrylate in skin care products
1. Improve the skin’s moisturising ability: Hydroxyethyl Acrylate has excellent moisturising properties and is particularly effective for dry skin.
2. Reduce skin wrinkles and sagging: Hydroxyethyl Acrylate can promote the generation of collagen, reduce skin wrinkles and sagging, so that the skin is more firm.
3. Even skin colour: Hydroxyethyl Acrylate can promote the metabolism of the stratum corneum, accelerate the renewal of the skin, thus improving skin colour and reducing the appearance of pigmentation.
4. Calming and soothing: Hydroxyethyl Acrylate can improve the adhesion of the skin through the details, to prevent external stimuli, so as to achieve the effect of calming and soothing.
1. Hydroxyethyl Acrylate is suitable for use in the formulation of skin care products, but cannot be applied directly to the skin for use.
2. When using skin care products, attention should be paid to the quality and applicability of the product to avoid adverse reactions due to skin allergies and other reasons.
3. If skin irritation or other discomfort occurs, discontinue use immediately and consult a physician.

What is the appropriate addition amount of hydroxyethyl acrylate in emulsion polymerisation?

The suitable addition amount of hydroxyethyl acrylate in emulsion polymerisation is 1%-5%.
First, the role of hydroxyethyl acrylate
Hydroxyethyl acrylate is a water-based monomer, which can be added to the emulsion polymerisation to regulate the polymerisation reaction rate and improve the emulsion quality. Specifically, it can:
1. improve the stability of the emulsion, prevent the emulsion from breaking, delamination and other phenomena.
2. increase the polymerisation rate of the emulsion, shorten the reaction time and improve the production efficiency.
3. improve the film-forming properties of the polymer, making the polymer more uniform and smooth.
Second, the appropriate amount to add
Although hydroxyethyl acrylate has many benefits, but excessive addition will lead to polymerisation reaction is difficult to control, affecting the quality of the product. Therefore, in emulsion polymerisation, the appropriate additive amount ranges from 1% to 5%. The specific addition amount should be adjusted according to different systems and product requirements. If the amount added is too little, it will not give play to its advantages; if the amount added is too much, it may affect the control of the polymerisation reaction.
