A composition of ingredients, or components, is patentable if it is novel (new), non-obvious (or similar though not identical compositions), and has utility (usefulness). The invention must also be described in a manner sufficient for persons of ordinary skill to make and use the invention, and must be described in terms sufficient to show that the inventor had possession of the claimed invention. If your invention, and the written patent application and claim, accomplish these, it should be patentable.
