All About Urea
Urea is an organic compound naturally found in the human
body. Urea has been medically proven in various
clinical studies to have extraordinary anti-fungal and
anti-microbial properties that promotes fast healing of
dry cracked split skin, eczema, psoriasis, rashes, acne
and other types of problem skin. The urea in our products
(a white and odorless
powder) is produced from
salt compounds and does NOT come from any animals or
uses this type of urea in the same way as the urea
naturally found in the skin. Scientists call it a true
"humectant" because it is an important component of the
body's Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF). Urea causes
hard dry skin cells to "unpack" and expose their water
binding sites, thereby enabling the cell to absorb and
retain additional moisture. This action is also known
as hydrotopic solubilization and several independent
clinical investigations and studies prove that it works.
By virtue of it's inherent qualities urea skin cream
produces astonishing results as an eczema skin treatment
and a psoriasis skin treatment.
In a clinical study, urea has been proven to heal
serious wounds and burns without any scarring.
Further studies have shown that in addition to its'
anti-bacterial and anti-septic qualities, urea also
has anti-itch properties that have a very rapid
effect on problematic red itchy skin rashes and even
the common mosquito bite.
Urea has an antipruritic (anti-itching) effect that
can be demonstrated experimentally in a controlled
double-blind study. In diseases such as eczema this
anti-itching property is of great importance.
large number of studies have confirmed the
beneficial effect of urea creams for many of the
skin problems people face today. Evidence shows
that urea creams are usesful for all degrees of dry
skin. If the skin is very dry and scaly, a large
amount of the cream is taken up by the horny layer.
Urea may sting due to hypo-osmolarity (intense
penetration) of the cream and not because it is
irritating to the skin. Urea is much more than just
a moisturizer because unlike other creams and
moisturizers, it has many different beneficial
effects on the skin: it not only acts as an
extraordinary therapeutic agent for skin disorders,
but also attracts moisture to the skin while at the
same time preventing water loss in the skin
research studies show, urea replenishes the water
content of the skin because it binds hydrogen and
attracts moisture to the skin in a way that no mineral
oil or glycerine-based lotions or creams can. In the
many years of laboratory studies researchers discovered
that , unlike just about all other types of oil-based
moisturizers that simply sit on the top layers of the
skin and do nothing to improve , urea actually increases
the water-binding capacity of the skin by opening skin
layers for hydrogen bonding, which then attracts
moisture to dry skin cells.
the beauty end, urea penetrates the deepest layers of
the skin where it actually binds water in the horny skin
layers, plumping up the skin for a firm, supple,
wrinkle-free appearance, (water retention within skin
cells gives skin its elasticity and wrinkle-free
appearance) providing skin renewal and benefits that
other formulas cannot. Urea is naturally found in
healthy, young skin and is an important part of your
skin's natural, moisturizing system.
Urea is a scientifically proven moisturizer and is a far
better moisturizer and skin treatment than even the most
expensive oil-based creams or lotions that you can buy
or get as a prescription from your doctor. Skin needs
water, not oils, to make it soft and younger looking.
Almost all of the commercial and often astronomically
expensive lotions and creams we buy to soften dry skin
are composed of lipids, or oily substances, like mineral
oil, which we think will moisturize and beautify our
skin. But in reality, urea does a much better job of
moisturizing the skin than oil-based moisturizers
because it keeps water within the skin layers, making it
supple and soft. You'll be absolutely amazed at the
softness and beauty of your skin after even one
treatment with urea cream. Old dead skin immediately
flakes away, and your skin becomes wonderfully soft,
rosey and with time, even wrinkles will disappear.
Some of the creams that are
advertised to help prevent wrinkling may actually
cause it. Many Alpha Hydroxy, Estrogen and Retin-A
creams rely on chemical exfoliation to reverse or
counter the aging process. These creams actually
peel off the outer layer of skin to make the skin
appear more shiny. Many women who use them get a
flaky peel and redness that is not flattering.
Constant application of these creams may strip off
the protective keratin layer that covers the skin,
increase fluid loss and actually increase
