Ingredient

Each tube: Urea 2g.

Pharmacodynamic

Urea has the effect of breaking the normal hydrogen bonds of keratinized proteins, helping to exfoliate the stratum corneum in the skin, softening the skin.

Pharmacokinetics

Urea is very poorly absorbed through the skin when applied topically. Urea is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and excreted unchanged in the urine.

Itchy, dry and cracked skin in winter.

Dosage and Administration
