This association of ingredients corresponds to Ashland Lubrajel Oil.

According to Ashland, Lubrajel hydrogels are hydrophilic and consist of water, humectants and a polymer as a thickening agent. The solvent and humectant molecules are bound to the polymeric network, resulting in a structured system with increased viscosity.

Lubrajels are rheology modifiers. Ashland offers several versions, with varying viscosities, from the highly viscous Lubrajel DV hydrogel used in emulsion stabilization and suspension of compatible materials such as titanium dioxide to Lubrajel Oil hydrogel, an oil-like, low viscosity gel. They are also effective at stabilizing emulsions in various personal care applications.

Lubrajel Oil (Glycerin (and) Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer (and) PVM/MA Copolymer) is water-soluble clear gel. According to Ashland, “it is an emollient matrix that imparts excellent lubricity and provides skin care products with superb spreadability”. It is used for moisturization and emulsion stabilization.
