Glycerol

Glycerol is naturally extracted from vegetable oils and found in a wide range of cosmetic products. This emulsifying agent helps to naturally thicken Bubbagum™ teething gel and give a smooth consistency for easy application.

Xanthan Gum

Xanthan gum is naturally derived from the fermentation of corn sugars.  It’s widely used as a thickening and stabilising agent in a wide range of food and cosmetic products.
It’s considered a non-hazardous additive and helps give Bubbagum™ it’s gel-like consistency.

Organic Ethanol

Organic ethanol is naturally derived from fermented sugar cane. Used to mix oil- and water-based ingredients by acting as a solubiliser, dispersing oils in water. 
This isn’t a main ingredient used in our teething gel, however, it is used in the formulation process and can be found in very small traces (therefore listed as an ingredient).

Potassium Sorbate

Potassium sorbate is a natural compound and a food grade preservative. Commonly used for its anti-microbial properties, it increases the shelf life of our natural teething gel.
Potassium sorbate can be found in many items ranging from body to food products and won’t bother your bub.

Water
(aqua purified)

Water used in Bubbagum™ natural teething gel goes through a deionising process This removes any components that could hinder the stability of our gel.
