INCI: Urea

Urea acts as a moisturising agent in the stratum corneum layer of the skin and forms part of the skins natural moisturising factor.

When used topically, different concentrations of Urea will have differing effects:

  • At 3 - 5% it will function as a moisturiser and humectant - works very well in combination with glycerine
  • At 10% it will act to soften the outer layer of the skin
  • At 20% it will act as a chemical peel

Urea is most stable when in aqueous solutions with a pH of 6.2.

It is also affected by heat and so should only be added during the final stage of manufacturing.

PureNature supplies synthesised Urea which is made in NZ from natural gas and is not derived from animal products.

adds wonderful hydration to a moisturiser

I grind in a pestle and mortar, very easy to use. dissolves nicely in cool down phase. makes a cream soap a little when first applying to skin, but not too bad
