Lubrajel BA hydrogel is a novel solution for mouth moisturization that provides a formulation option for dry mouth. Lubrajel BA hydrogel is a clathrate of glyceryl acrylate and glyceryl polyacrylate that encloses water molecules via hydrogen bonding and Van der Waals forces. Since it binds moisture and is a highly viscous gel, Lubrajel BA hydrogel is an ideal ingredient to provide moisture to the mouth.

Lubrajel BA hydrogel offers the following features and benefits:

  • provides hydration
  • adds shear thinning characteristics, just like natural saliva
  • enhances mucoadhesion to help hold moisture in the mouth
  • provides cohesive rheological properties
  • supplies lubricity for pleasant saliva-like mouth feel

Applications:

  • mouthwashes
  • mouth moisturizers
  • mouth sprays and gels
