What is NatraGel?
NatraGel hydrogels are swollen networks of water-soluble polymers consisting
of high percentages of water. Unlike many hydrogels, NatraGel is not cross-linked
thereby making NatraGel a more functional, durable hydrogel. NatraGel
is natural, hypoallergenic and consists of exclusively of plant/marine-based
does it moisturize and hydrate?
The immediate cooling sensation of NatraGel acts as a calming, soothing
agent on contact with the skin. As the body temperature warms up the NatraGel,
the gel matrix begins to release the incorporated additives and moisture
out onto the skin. An occlusive moisture barrier further holds and drives
the additives and moisture onto the stratum corneum layer of the skin.
How can additives be incorporated
The NatraGel hydrogel matrix exhibits both liquid-like and solid-like
properties. This composition makes NatraGel biocompatible with a wide
range of therapeutic additives (depending on the additives size, shape,
polarity, solubility and sensitivity to light/heat). This unique biocompatibility
along with the matrix structure allow NatraGel to release/deliver these
incorporated additives onto the skin. In-vitro skin model laboratory evaluations
have been performed to confirm the degree and rate of transfer to the
skin of a variety of the active agents which have been incorporated into
