Urea is a very versatile ingredient in cosmetics. Depending on its concentration, it can serve different needs.
In concentrations of up to 20%, it works as a deep moisturiser for cosmetic use and helps to treat flaky skin. In higher concentrations it works as an exfoliant.
Its moisturising and penetrating power offers good results to treat severely dry skin, nails, scalp, calluses and other conditions, such as psoriasis or eczema.
