The gel-like substance is actually an important part of the absorption process and is known as a super-absorbent. The gel can sometimes migrate out of the central core of a diaper/nappy. This generally occurs because of the pressure created by the child’s body movement after the granules have been wet. This is of course not harmful. Super-absorbent granules are widely employed within the disposable diaper/nappy industry to improve absorption and provide enhanced leakage protection. They have now enjoyed a long, safe history of use spanning some twenty years in diapers/nappies as well as in some feminine care products and adult incontinence diapers/nappies.
