BabyLove nappies contain a Super Absorbent Polymer called Polyacrylate and is mixed in with the nappy padding. This material turns liquid into gel, helping prevent nappy leakage. The Super Absorbent Polymers start in a granulae/ crystal form and turns to gel once wet. Occasionally this safe, gel material will seep out of the pad and onto your baby’s skin. The gel material is quite safe and will not harm your baby in any way.
