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 ingredients.

How 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 into NatraGel?
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 NatraGel.
