iCraft Launch Graphene Cosmetic Face Mask Featuring Haydale Graphene Nano-Platelets

04 March 2020

Haydale, (AIM: HAYD), the global advanced materials group, is pleased to announce that its graphene has been incorporated into iCraft’s recently launched cosmetic face mask sheet. These sheet masks are face-shaped sheet fabrics which utilise the thermal and electrical conductivity of graphene to help the skin absorb its contents through bioelectric currents.

Haydale has supplied graphene to iCraft since May 2019 for development work in a number of areas including cosmetic use. iCraft, based in South Korea, is a global technology company with interests in security and network solutions as well as the health and beauty sector. Following intense research and rigorous testing, iCraft is pleased to report zero harmful substances for graphene-based products, and has applied for three related patents.

Whilst the initial volume of graphene required to meet early stage demand may not be significant, this marks a significant step-change in the use of the material, which is now being used in applications that directly touch the skin.

iCraft has now signed supply contracts with two brands to begin delivery of the cosmetic face mask sheets. In addition, iCraft is working with a number of additional companies and cosmetic brands who iCraft expect will introduce the product into their ranges.

Derek Yoon, iCraft, General Manager, said: iCRAFT plans to create synergy with the existing business by striving to expand various related products and applying graphene. We are hoping that graphene cosmetic face mask sheets, launched in cooperation with Haydale, will get a good response in the global cosmetic market. In addition, an anti-counterfeit solution applying graphene is also under development.

Keith Broadbent, Haydale CEO, said:Following significant research and development, it is great to see a graphene-based product launched for the health and beauty sector. Working alongside iCraft, we anticipate a number of graphene enhanced products will now be launched both in the cosmetic market and in the wider fight against counterfeit goods.”
