What is urea?
Urea is found naturally in the top layer of your skin - it’s a part of the Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF). It is a humectant - a powerful ingredient that draws water into the skin like a magnet and is an active part of the NMF. Now before we start it’s important to say that urea in skincare isn’t derived from urine(!) It is made in a laboratory so is totally hygenic and nothing to worry about!
