This study aimed to prepare a new peeling formulation in which mesoporous MCM-48 loaded with lavender oil and vitamin E in a supercritical carbon dioxide (sC-CO2) environment is used as a peeling agent. This study targeted at preparing a new peeling formulation which consists of a mesoporous MCM-48 onto which an essential oil such as lavender oil was loaded via a green method that utilized supercritical carbon dioxide (sC-CO2). This study aimed to prepare a new peel formulation consisting of a mesoporous MCM-48 loaded with lavender oil using supercritical carbon dioxide (sC-CO2). Structural characterization of MCM-48 and MCM-48-Lavender oil (MCM-48-L) were made via XRD and FT-IR techniques. The XRD powder diffraction pattern shows the amorphous SiO2 structure at 2q=20o . Their particle sizes and morphologies were investigated by FE-SEM. The average particle diameter was determined as 590 nm. Pore volumes were determined by N2 adsorption/desorption analysis. The BET surface area for the prepared MCM-48 was calculated as 2641 m2 /g and the pore diameter of MCM-48 was found to be 3.60 nm. All the results obtained show that MCM-48 loaded with lavender oil and vitamin e can be used as an exfoliating agent.
