Products with Urea for Psoriasis

What to know about urea?

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 dry skin conditions, including psoriasis, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function, which may be worsening the disease symptoms [2]. In psoriasis, topical urea has been shown to increase epidermal water content and reduce the loss of water across the skin surface when measured shortly after application [3].
