The hydrogel formulation also promotes the absorption of excess fluid leakage and allows it to evaporate, keeping the skin dry and reducing the likelihood of damage to surrounding healthy skin.
The hydrogel in Kendall™ hydrogel breast feeding pads is made from three primary components: water, polyurethane and glycol. The water helps provide a cool, soothing sensation when first applied.
Glycol helps prevent the pad from drying out and keeps your skin smooth and soft. The polyurethane binds the pad together, giving it strength even after absorption.
