versi berkulit lekitan


Explanation:
A dehydrated and surface skinned version of the liquid form containing microencapsulated peroxide... I can only guess, since it's MSDS.

I think, iskinned/i is an adjective here, rather than a verb. so, the meaning is 'berkulit', rather than the opposite.

Surface tension can act like a skin to the liquid, dehydration will make it even firmer, thus microencapsulating the peroxide within. You may need to translate into more than one sentence to make it clear.

'lekitan' is the force creating this skin. Sorry, couldn't provide further reference. May be you can try googling 'surface tension'.

Berkulit lekitan is a poor translation. If you have a Malay thesaurus, try a better alternative for 'permukaan or muka'. My wife is using my laptop and don't want to be disturbed. :p

Example sentence(s):
  • fair skinned = berkulit cerah
