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.

Lacto-intensive active complex
By means of a special process fresh organic whey is being fermented. As a base of nearly all BIOTURM products, the fermented organic whey normalises the skin’s flora and the acid mantle by the ingredients contained. Natural lactic acid, essential amino acids, trace elements etc. are well absorbed by the skin and normalise the skin's moisture level.
Under “special ingredients -> lacto-intensive active complex” you will find more information about it.
Squalane from plant origin
Squalane is extracted from vegetable oils like olive, amaranth, palm, rice germ and wheat germ oil and is hydrogenated to saturated squalane. As a component of the sebum, 5 to 12 % of squalane is included in the hydro lipid layer of the skin. It protects the cell membrane by inhibition of the lipid peroxidation. Squalane provides a silky soft skin feeling and is not greasy.
