I've only seen two products that work as you claim, I can't remember
the one name, but the other is SuperSorb, neither were "Natural" as
you claim, both were a superabsorbant polymer.  One was clear, the
other tannish in appearance after wetting.

The clear product could be attractively used in glass decanters and
food color used to impart a color to the product as it absorbed water.

This mix ratio was 1 lb of product to 35 gallons of water and came in
two grades, coarse and fine, the coarse being the most decorative in
glass containers.

It sells for just a little over $5.00 per lb in the dry form (35
gallons wet) and hawked at several flea markets in little one/half
ounce bags for about $2.00 making the product cost around 15 cents and
the bag about a dime if that.  Not a bad markup if you can get it!
