What does this mean?

Inci:Urea

An extremely effective moisturiser and humectant that can improve dry and scaly skin. A good deodorant that also makes excellent foot creams. This product used to be called “Carbamide Moisturising Crystals”.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

White granules with a very faint aroma that are synthesised by producing ammonia from nitrogen gas that is taken from the air. This is then combined with Carbon Dioxide and this forms what is called a “hot melt”. Water is added, and it becomes an aqueous Urea solution, which is then evaporated to produce the Urea Crystals.
  • Use 1% to 10%.
  • Use 1-5% in deodorants and hand creams as a humectant and for moisturising purposes.
  • Use up to 10% for softening the hard skin on the feet.
  • Water-soluble, so cannot be used in oil only products.
  • Heat stable, so can be used in Stage 2 (water stage) when making creams and lotions.
Urea combines very well in creams that contains Calendula and Shea Butter for cracked heels on the feet.
 
Be aware that this product can make emulsions thin slightly, so you may need to formulate a thicker texture to start with, using a strong emulsifier.

HOW TO USE IT

Skin Care
  • Urea is an excellent humectant that improves moisture levels in the skin. It helps to replenish the natural levels of urea lost from the skin by using harsh cleansing products.
  • It has skin soothing properties but is too strong to be used on very sensitive or babies skin.
  • When used in the higher percentages, it helps to loosen the keratin bonds in hard skin, making it an excellent ingredient in foot creams.
  • Can improve the appearance of dry and scaly skin.
  • Urea has a very good deodorising effect which is useful in foot gels and creams, but also in deodorants.
Hair Care
  • No specific use in hair care products.

    Urea crystals

    Great moisturizing effect. Skin is left feeling moisturized and relived of itching.
