A gel usually has the appearance of a jelly, and is transparent. It looks like the cross between a solid and a liquid, but do not behave like either. Gels are actually closer in structure to a liquid that solids, because they are mostly water based. Gels are transparent formulas that contain cellulose ethers and or carbromer in water or use a water-alcohol mixture.

Gels are usually oil free. Gels can come in different colours and are absorbed faster through the skin than creams or lotions.

Caution: Massage gels can be irritating to sensitized skin. They may contain preservatives and/or  emulsifiers if allergy to these agents are a concern.
