Sensogel Novus imparts a water-fresh sensory effect and refreshing hydrogel profile. It provides formulation stability via its thickening functionality, due to a high pH tolerance.

It also features the company’s SPE Complex Technology, which creates rich, hydrophilic gels with a cushioned, velvety feel—and without the use of silicones. It is also PEG-, oil- and acrylamide-free, for non-irritating and non-sensitizing formulations.

According to the company, the active is globally compliant and is available as RSPO Certified Mass Balance.
