Urea - a unique active ingredient
Urea is being used successfully to treat problematic and dry skin, neurodermatitis and psoriasis. Especially the combination with our lacto-intensive active complex is unique and helps to improve well-being of persons affected. We often get a positive feed-back from our customers telling us how satisfied they are with our products.
What is urea?
Urea can be found on healthy human skin and naturally improves the skin's ability to retain moisture. Its structure allows moisture to be absorbed from the air and retain it so that the skin is moisturized. There are no natural sources of urea which would be suitable for cosmetics, thus nature identical urea is obtained from carbon dioxide and ammoniac under high pressure and high temperature.
Our skin has about 7 % of natural moisurizers. In case of dry skin, neurodermatitis and psoriasis the content of urea is partly reduced (sometimes up to 50 %). Thus, the ability of the skin to retain moisture is perturbed with the consequence of skin dehydration. With the external application of urea, the urea content is balanced again and the skin is nourished with moisture. Products with a content of up to 10 % urea have a strong moisturizing effect. On irritated skin or open wounds, urea could cause a short burning feeling.
Why is the combination with the lacto-intensive active complex so unique?
The effect of urea is supported by the lacto-intensive active complex which is contained in our products. The complex is obtained from fresh organic whey and normalises the skin flora and the acid mantle. Furthermore other ingredients like natural lactic acid, essential amino acids and trace elements provide for an improved moisture balance in case of damaged skin.
