What is urea?
Urea is one of the natural substances in your body, where it serves several different purposes. One of these is to heighten the barrier function of your skin, and it also reduces the evaporation of water from the skin. Urea is also known as carbamide.
You can give your skin more carbamide with creams containing urea, which will keep it healthy and well cared.
How does urea work?
It is no secret that urea is especially good for skin care and moisturising. But how does it work? And what is the advantage in adding more of one of the substances that nature has already supplied in the body?
Urea is one of the very best substances for adding water to your skin and binding it there. If you apply urea to your skin in a cream with urea, you underpin one of the natural substances in the body. It strengthens your skin's capacity for binding water in the outer layers.
That is the foundation for healthy, moisturised skin.
What problems are solved by urea in creams?
If you have trouble with dry skin, you may have tried all sorts of creams and products already in your efforts to solve the problem.
Dry skin can be very uncomfortable, and you can have it anywhere on the body, on your face, hands or feet.
A good cream with urea can help with dry skin. It supplies moisture to the skin, and helps to relieve the dry skin that troubles you.
Why use urea in creams?
Urea can work wonders for your skin.
It adds moisture, which makes your skin look healthier and well cared for. If you know the feeling of dry skin on your hands and feet, you also know that healthy, moist skin is much more comfortable.
There are various forms of urea cream on the market:
- Body Lotion
- Face creams
- Foot creams
- Hand creams
- Other types of creams
Different creams contain different amounts of urea
The concentration of urea varies in the different creams. You can get hold of a cream with a low urea content of around 5 % or a cream with as much as 25 %.
At Australian Bodycare we use a high urea content. Our urea creams contain from 10% to 25 % urea. They are therefore highly effective with regard to adding moisture to your skin and making it look healthier.
Foot care: pamper your feet with a good urea cream
Your feet are one of the areas where dry skin is most common – because your feet are exposed to all kinds of things. They have to carry your entire weight every time you take a step, and they end up in varying footwear with varying degrees of support.
In other words, a good foot cream is necessary to care for your feet and keep them healthy. Australian Bodycare Foot Cream nurtures your feet and is suitable for daily care, even if they have already become dry.
Take extra care of your feet if you have trouble with cracked heels
If the skin on your feet is very dry, it can easily split and form deep cracks. It is uncomfortable, and does not look good if you want to give your feet some air in open summer sandals.
With Australian Bodycare Heel Repair you can give your heels and feet the care they need. The content of urea in the cream softens the skin on your feet and provides lots of moisture. You should preferably use the urea cream daily to treat cracked heels or to prevent cracking.
Good routines to care for your skin
Your skin will need some help if it is to stay smooth and healthy. Moisture is often one of the big problems when skin is tired or dry. Remember, it is never too late to start with a good skin-care routine: better late than never.
So enjoy pampering yourself and your skin with urea cream and other skin-care products.
