Urea (also known as Carbamide) is produced naturally by the skin and is part of the essential Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) which regulates skin’s moisture content. Urea is hygroscopic, which means it is able to bind moisture into the outermost layer of skin. It is also keratolytic, meaning helps the skin to get rid of dead skin cells dead skin cells, to make it smooth again, and has anti-itch and anti-microbial properties. As a result, it improves natural exfoliation and soothes and smoothes the skin’s surface. As a substance produced naturally by the skin, Urea is well-tolerated even by dry and sensitive skin. Because all of these effects and very good study data, Urea is the gold standard in treating of dry skin.*

Like Urea, Lactate (the salt of Lactic Acid) is also produced naturally by skin and is part of the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) which regulates skin’s moisture content. Lactate absorbs and retains moisture within the stratum corneum, or upper layer of the skin, and therefore plays a vital role in maintaining the skin’s physical properties. Low levels of Lactate within the stratum corneum are known to be associated with dry skin.
Why do I need a special moisturiser for my face?
Your face is generally exposed to the causes of dry skin, like sunshine, wind and detergents, much more frequently than the rest of your body, and therefore needs frequent moisturisation to prevent dry skin symptoms, such as itching, redness, scaling and irritation. Eucerin UREA REPAIR Face Cream contains key ingredients that lock in moisture to maintain long-lasting hydration. Learn more about dry facial skin.
Why should I use Eucerin UREA REPAIR Face Cream instead of just using a body product, such as Eucerin UreaRepair Plus 5% Body Cream, on my face?
