Urea is not only a metabolic waste product of the kidneys but also a natural moisturizer which can be found on the skin with a content of up to 7 %. In case of psoriasis and neurodermatitis the content of urea is considerably reduced at the concerned skin parts (sometimes it goes down until 3,5 %). Products with a content of up to 10 % urea have a strong moisturising effect, higher concentrations have keratolytic properties (soften callused skin). There are no natural sources to obtain urea which would be suitable for cosmetics, thus nature identical urea is obtained from carbon dioxide and ammoniac under high pressure and high temperature. On irritated skin or open wounds, urea could cause a short burning feeling.

Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil
Jojoba oil is extracted from the seeds of an evergreen shrub (Simmondsia chinensis). The jojoba shrub is native to semi-deserts and deserts in Mexico, California and Arizona (Sonora desert). The oil is a golden yellow, clear liquid wax which is very similarly composed like human sebum. It penetrates well and quickly and is not greasy. Jojoba oil is resistant against oxidative processes and thus also suitable for the stabilisation of other oils. It cannot be metabolised by certain microorganisms which might damage the skin so that they are not able to survive (e. g. Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Propionibacterius acnes und Candida albicans). It has wound-healing and anti-inflammatory effects, softens callused skin and protects the corneal layer against water loss. (Picture credits: ©vainillaychile/123rf.com)
