Tromethamine is an aliphatic compound. An aliphatic compound is an organic compound with open-chained carbon atoms. It is synthetically created. Tromethamine is used to balance pH and improve texture.

As an emulsifier, Tromethamine prevents oil and water ingredients from separating. This helps stabilize the product and elongate a product's shelf life. Tromethamine also makes a product thicker.

Tromethamine helps balance the pH level of a product. Normal pH level of skin is slightly acidic (~4.75-5.5). The acidity of our skin is maintained by our glands and skin biome. Being slightly acidic allows our skin to create an "acid mantle". This acid mantle is a thin barrier that protects our skin from bacteria and contaminants.

Oral Tromethanmine is an anti-inflammatory drug but plays the role of masking, adding fragrance, and/or balancing pH in skincare.

I don't know what magic they put in these things but my skin absolutely loves them. Soothing, hydrating, healing - these do it all. There's a reason they're one of the most popular products in Korea.

Also don't forget to squeeze all the product out of the mask! I usually replace some of my toner and serum steps with this when I use it, and I save the product that's left in the pouch and do the same with that product the following evening.

If you decide you like them and want to keep using them, Olive Young usually has the best price for them.
