Hydrocolloid is technically not a cosmetic ingredient. It is a type of material used to dress uninfected wounds. Hydrocolloid is coated with a mix of gelatin, pectin, xanthan gum, carrageenan, and other biopolymers.

Hydrocolloid patches made for treating pimples often have other ingredients, such as tea tree oil, salicylic acid, niacinamide, glycolic acid, and more. Unfortunately, unless a company discloses this information, we won't have a way to know what other ingredients are present.

When hydrocolloid is applied to a wound, the polysaccharides and polymers absorb water to form a gel. These moist conditions help promote wound healing without breaking down cell tissue.

A study from 2021 found Hydrocolloid may aid in scar healing.

The Hydro-Stars, made solelly of Hydrocolloid, are what I need to make the situation less frustrating. They're good for non-cystic pimples. I usually wear them in the evening/during night, but also left the house with some on my face. From pimple- to starface.

just cute honestly, like any other hydro star. buy it as a makeup product rather than a pimple fighter, much more affordable options
