who keeps you clear of maskne? we do.

Wearing a mask throughout the day as well as the stress of living in a global pandemic can lead to increased acne, blemishes and skin irritation. It’s called maskne and yes, it is a real thing.

The key to fighting back against maskne is to cleanse and protect the skin. Ashland solvers have developed a range of formulations to prevent and treat blemishes as well as soothe, moisturize and nourish skin with natural and natural-derived ingredients. The formulations optimize the delivery and deposition of actives; address formulating challenges: improve sensorial textures and provide additional skin benefits. Find out how our portfolio of ingredients can create gentle and effective formulations to keep skin looking its best.
