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.
Under “special ingredients -> urea” you will find more information about our certified products with urea.
Panthenol (provitamin B5) increases the skins ability to retain moisture, has anti-inflammatory, itching soothing and wound healing properties and also stimulates the epithelisation. As provitamin it becomes in tissue a component of coenzyme A, one of the most important enzymes in metabolism. Nature identical panthenol is extracted from acetaldehyde and ammoniac which is transformed into panthenol by beta-alanine and butyric acid.

Natural lactic acid, essential amino acids, trace elements etc. are well absorbed by the skin and normalise the skin's moisture level.
