What is AGM (Absorbent Gelling Material)? It is grainy/gels like, is it safe to my baby?

We use absorbent gelling material in the padding of our diapers to absorb wetness. This material has a long history of safe use in a variety of products and has been in Pampers and Luvs diapers for more than two decades. Absorbent gelling material (AGM) is closely related to ingredients widely used in cosmetics, in food processing, and as binders in medicine capsules. When added to our diapers, the AGM is dry and granular, but it forms a gel as it absorbs liquid. It's perfectly normal to see some gel on the skin from time to time, especially if the diaper is heavily saturated.

It might help to know the Institute for Polyacrylate Absorbents has researched the safety of consumer products containing absorbent gels and found them to be safe. For more information, please visit www.superabsorbents.com
