Potassium hydroxide flakes, also known as caustic potash flakes, are versatile ingredients commonly used in skincare formulations. These white, solid flakes are highly soluble in water and possess strong alkaline properties. Potassium hydroxide is obtained by the electrolysis of potassium chloride solution and is widely used in various industries, including cosmetics and personal care.


  • pH Adjustment: Potassium hydroxide flakes are commonly used to adjust the pH level in skincare products, ensuring optimal acidity or alkalinity for the skin.
  • Emulsification: They aid in emulsifying oil and water-based ingredients, helping to create stable and homogeneous formulations.
  • Exfoliation: Potassium hydroxide can be used in chemical peels or exfoliating products to promote the removal of dead skin cells, revealing smoother and brighter skin.
  • Hair removal: In some hair removal creams, potassium hydroxide helps weaken the hair root by breaking down the protein molecules, making it easier to remove.
  • Cleansing Agent: Its strong alkaline nature enables potassium hydroxide to act as a cleansing agent, effectively removing dirt, oils, and impurities from the skin.

Usage: Potassium hydroxide flakes should be handled with care and used in appropriate concentrations. It is recommended to dilute them in distilled water before adding them to skincare formulations. Care should be taken to avoid direct contact with the skin, eyes, or mucous membranes.

Recommended Usage in Skincare Products:

The recommended usage of potassium hydroxide flakes in skincare products can vary depending on the specific formulation and desired pH. Generally, concentrations between 0.1% to 2% are used, but it is essential to follow guidelines provided by suppliers and conduct stability and compatibility tests.

Solubility: Potassium hydroxide flakes are highly soluble in water, allowing them to easily dissolve when mixed with water-based ingredients. However, they are insoluble in oils and non-polar solvents.


  • pH Adjuster: Potassium hydroxide flakes are used to modify the pH level in various skincare products, including cleansers, toners, serums, and creams.
  • Emulsifiers: They help stabilize emulsions in formulations such as lotions, creams, and moisturizers.
  • Depilatory Creams: In depilatory creams, potassium hydroxide weakens the hair structure for easier hair removal.

Storage: Potassium hydroxide flakes should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from moisture and direct sunlight. It is recommended to keep them tightly sealed in their original container to prevent absorption of moisture from the air. Proper storage conditions help maintain their quality and extend their shelf life. Additionally, it is essential to keep them out of reach of children and ensure clear labeling for easy identification and safe handling.
