Urea is a naturally occurring substance found in the skin with moisturizing and exfoliating properties.

Urea in a nutshell:


  • Is a powerful humectant, meaning it attracts and retains moisture in the skin
  • Helps break down and soften keratin, a protein found in the skin's outer layer. This gentle exfoliation process helps to remove dead skin cells, allowing for smoother and more radiant skin.
  • Recommended use: In creams and serums
  • Skin types: suitable for all skin types, especially for dry, sensitive and mature skin

The Benefits:

Overall, urea is a versatile skincare ingredient known for its hydrating, exfoliating, barrier-repairing, anti-inflammatory, wound-healing, and penetration-enhancing properties. Urea helps to strengthen the skin's natural barrier function by replenishing lipids and proteins in the stratum corneum (outermost layer of the skin). This helps to restore and maintain the skin's protective barrier, reducing moisture loss and enhancing overall skin health.
