Products with Urea for Eczema

What effect does Urea have on the skin?

Urea is an important component of the epidermis where it serves to keep healthy skin hydrated by attracting and binding water as a part of the skin’s natural moisturising factor [1]. In atopic dermatitis, the use of urea containing emollients (either 5% or 10%) has been shown to reduce disease severity by about 20% after 42 days [2].
