Exciting new companies at NJIT's small biz incubator get 100K in grants

scientific instruments still bearing his name.

Applechem Inc. will receive a $49,000 Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) bridge grant to continue commercializing a range of NatureVgelTM prototypes to market to the cosmetic and toiletry industry and explore new applications for use in other fields.

Applechem CEO Samuel Lin, PhD, of Paramus, founded the company in 2003 to develop, manufacture, and market proprietary specialty materials to the global cosmetic and toiletry market.

For this project, Applechem worked with the US Department of Agriculture to develop a patent-pending technology to convert natural, renewable vegetable oils with advanced polymers into NatureVgelTM gels, a unique material with gel and elastomer properties. "This project has two goals," said Lin. "They are to develop and promote new value-added applications of US-produced vegetable oils and to replace petroleum-sourced materials with bio-based and renewable sourced materials."

NatureVgelTM can be used to control the rheology, enhance the texture, touch, feel, and active delivery for personal care lotions and creams, along with personal cleansing products like shower gel and for hair. "The material is so new," added Lin. "It can even be used for clear gel candles! We feel that our NatureVgel has great potential for many creative applications across many different industries."
