The purpose of this study was to evaluate the physicochemical properties and kinetic analyses of membranes obtained through the dispersion of pectin PEC (2 %), with or without the extract of Morinda citrifolia Linn EMC2.5 and 5.0 % in distilled water, and adding plasticizer propylene glycol (20 %). The thickness of the membranes was significantly different, and at SEM images of PEC2.5 %, they showed a more compact structure compared with other membranes. PEC5.0 % membrane showed the best values of mechanical properties. The DSC curve of EMC showed two endothermic events, and the DSC curves of the membranes presented two endothermic events and two exothermic events with profiles similar to PEC, PEC2.5 and PEC5.0 % membranes. A kinetic study was performed with thermogravimetry using the Ozawa method and non-Arrhenius methods. The kinetic parameters showed that the PEC and PEC5.0 % present a similar thermal stability. Thus, the Morinda citrifolia extract influences a more organized membrane structure, and the PEC-EMC2.5 % has the best characteristics for the development of a membrane with healing effect.

They dry quickly. To fill your lace front wigs uk with warm water, add a capful of, let sit 10 minutes and rinse. Empty sink and refill with warm lace wigs uk and then add a capful of conditioner. Let air dry on stand. Only wash once per week maximum. You will love this hair. Nice beautiful quality. The hair extensions was a little smaller than expected but I have a small head so it worked out just fine. It did tangle a little bit but I only brushed a few time throughout the day and I had on for a good 13 hours. Including human yaki lace wigs uk and brazilian human full lace wigs.
