Lubrajel™ Hydrogels deliver high moisturization

  • In vivo, double-blind, randomized study was conducted on twenty internal panelists
  • A gel cream formula containing either 5% of one of five Lubrajel® hydrogels or no Lubrajel® (control) was applied randomly to the panelists’ forearms
  • Hydration data was recorded after 4 and 8 hours
  • In a second study, hydration data was recorded for the same gel cream formula with 5% Lubrajel® Marine after 8 hours
  • In both studies, Lubrajel® demonstrated an ability to moisturize the skin versus the control

Lubrajel™ Hydrogels enhance sensory experience

  • To assess lubricity, a study was conducted to measure the drag resistance of a base gel cream formulation (control) using a texture analyzer
  • Compared to measurements taken of the base formulation containing either 5% Lubrajel™ or 5% glycerin
  • Highest slip is achieved by adding Lubrajel™ Marine while highest drag results from adding glycerin

Lubrajel™ Oil provides light, dimethicone-like after-feel

  • In a sensory study, a light-feel gel cream moisturizer containing either 3% of Lubrajel™ Oil or dimethicone (5 cst) was graded on several attributes by a 5-person expert panel in a double-blind, randomized test
  • The results demonstrated that the sensory profile did not change when Lubrajel™ Oil was used instead of dimethicone
  • Lubrajel™ Oil is an excellent alternative to achieve a light, dimethicone-like feel
