Abstract
Most of the foundation liquids in the market need makeup removers for cleaning, while the excessive use of makeup removers might lead to skin barrier damage, which would further lead to many kinds of dermatosis, such as skin sensitivity, facial telangiectasia, rosacea, acne, as well as various cosmetic contact dermatitis. Inspired by the protective effect of fiber-rich diet on the intestinal mucosal mechanical barrier, a novel hemp/cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs)-based foundation liquid featuring easy-wiping property has been constructed, which will effectively solve the post-makeup skin cleaning problems. In this experiment, the formula of the foundation liquid can be obtained through hemp/CNCs instead of mineral oil and titanium oxide, which are considered to have undesirable local tolerance, sensitizing potential, and are environmental pollutants, to create a moisture barrier. Industrial hemp is a hot issue in cosmetic research, and a great quantity of discarded industrial hemp stalk is available to be used to produce hemp/CNCs through grinding and acidification. The graft technique is adapted to obtain hemp/CNCs-g-polylactic acid (PLA). By replacing the hydroxyl group on the side of hemp/CNCs, hemp/CNCs-g-PLA reduces the intermolecular hydrogen bonding, resulting in a higher dispersion in the oil phase. The hemp/CNCs-g-PLA has excellent performance in terms of biological compatibility, water resistance, and non-penetration into the skin. With basic features of a foundation liquid to alleviate discoloration, age spots, and skin roughness, the foundation liquid based on hemp/CNCs-g-PLA provides a novel characteristic of easy-wiping, which helps to avoid the damage to the skin barrier caused by excessive cleansing.
