WHAT IS UREA?

Urea plays a key role in your skin’s natural moisturizing process. Urea has frequently been used in dermatological therapies for more than 30 years and studies have provided evidence that moisturizing creams containing urea improved the skin’s barrier function in humans. Our UREAKA!™ Therapeutic Barrier Skin Cream formula, made with urea, was developed because of its special ability to hydrate dry skin and alleviate itchiness by drawing moisture into the cell structure of the stratum corneum.

WHAT ARE PARABENS?

Parabens are a preservative that can be found in many personal care products such as shampoos, commercial moisturizers, shaving gels, cleansing gels, personal lubricants, topical pharmaceuticals and toothpaste. They are also used as food additives in some products. Basically, a huge percentage of the products you buy for everyday use contain some form of paraben, so it can be difficult to find products that do not use them.
