5 Reasons to Use Frei Ol Face Cream with 5% Urea for Dry and Sensitive Skin
1. Brightens your complexion
Lactic acid gently exfoliates alongside 5% urea which also has a gentle exfoliating action, allowing dead skin cells to shed so that new, bright skin cells can shine forth.
2. Even skin tone
Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid, is a very effective skin-restoring ingredients. It can improve the appearance of dark, open pores and uneven skin tone, such as age spots. It does this by slowing down the transfer of melanin in the skin to your skin’s epidermis.
3. Repairs damaged skin
Urea is part of your skin’s natural moisturising factor (NMF.) Your NMF is made up of water-holding ingredients that are essential for maintaining the health of skin’s outer layer. Unfortunately, people with particularly dry and sensitive skin lose their natural supply of urea, so adding this exceptional ingredient to your skin routine will literally train your skin to repair itself. Put it this way, you are giving skin what has been lost.
4. Conditions and softens
Dry skin can often feel rough, itchy and sensitized. Frei Ol’s Face Cream with 5% Urea contains borage seed oil and a variety of ceramides to ensure that skin is soft, smooth and in great condition. Borage seed oil is believed to have a cooling, anti-inflammatory effect on skin, while ceramides improve the soft look and feel of dry skin.
5. Protects against pollution
Vitamin E is a natural skin-conditioning agent, but it’s also known for protecting skin against pollution. It is an antioxidant, which means when it comes into contact with pollutants it oxidises. Putting an antioxidant on your skin stops pollutants from having this oxidation reaction with skin. In short, vitamin E protects your skin’s cells from environmental damage.
About Frei Ol
The Frei Ol brand began in 1966. Founded by Walter Bouhon, a pharmacist based in Nuremberg, Germany, Frei Ol began with one oil-based formula that mimicked the composition of skin’s natural lipids. Walter found that applying this formula to skin reinforced the skin’s natural protective layer and helped complexions retain water easily.
Today, Frei Ol is one of the highest-quality skincare brands available in pharmacies and is more relevant than ever: face and body care products, developed and produced in Germany, that support skin at all stages of life.
