CLINICALLY PROVEN ACTIVES:
Urea offers hydration, exfoliation, protection & penetration. When urea is applied to the skin, it is able to penetrate into the stratum corneum to enhance water absorption. Hence, urea improves the ability of the skin to retain water, while simultaneously balancing adequate hydration. Urea assists with the removal of dead skin cells in the stratum corneum & will improve the water binding ability of the skin. At high concentrations, urea is a keratolytic and helps to loosen scaly, dead skin allowing for exfoliation and improve cellular turnover.
