As a keratolytic emollient (phew, that’s a mouthful!), urea’s naturally made by the human body as a by-product of protein metabolism.
The urea that’s in skin care is synthetically made and serves as a powerful moisturizer that also sloughs away dead skin.
Benefits: Urea exfoliates the skin and eliminates the top layer of dry, scaly skin. Moisturizing comes naturally to it, too! It draws- and locks- in moisture.
Skin Types: Dry skin, as well as eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis prone skin, will soak up urea with little to no problem!
