3 Facts you didn’t know about Urea

1. Urea is produced naturally by our body and is normally filtered by our kidneys.  This doesn’t sound very appealing but the actual ingredient itself is odourless and colourless.

2. Urea being a natural product, is non-toxic and non-allergenic. Our body tends to keep hold of some urea to be reused, and to regulate skin moisture as it’s able to bind and hold on to water.

3. Urea also has exfoliating properties by breaking down bonds between dead skin cells.

Common Signs Of Dry Skin

 Rough

– Scaly / flaking skin

 Itchy

– Tight

– Red and inflamed when irritated

Eucerin Dry Skin Range

The products are enriched with urea and lactate which help rebuild our skin’s structure; improving our skin’s water retention.  As a result your skin is left looking radiant, smooth and well nourished.

There are 8 products within the urea range consisting of face creams, body wash and lotions as well as an intensive lip balm.  All products are beautifully designed and are suitable for all skin types.  The range is especially recommended for any dry skin conditions such as xeroderma, eczema and itchthyosis as well as everyday use to maintain healthy skin.

My Personal Favourite

Eucerin intensive lotion 10% – the standard percentage of urea10is around 5% in most products on the market, so in comparison this provide twice as much moisture.  The product also consists of lactate which ensures long lasting hydration.  The lotion helps with natural regeneration of cells by aiding exfoliation and is an essential product in all dry skin conditions.

The lotion can be applied to all parts of your body and as often as required.  Make sure your skin is clean and dry and then massage the lotion in.  To achieve even better results use alongside the Eucerin Replenishing Cream 5% Urea in the problem areas for overall hydration.
