Acne is an embarrassing condition, and people invest much time and money into treatment products. Urea is a common and effective ingredient found in many acne treatment products.
Urea is a natural waste byproduct of the human body. It develops in the blood and is then filtered out of the blood through the kidney, later passing as urine.
Acne is a non life threatening disease that displays itself as legions on the skin. Causes have thought to be changing hormones, bacteria and possibly genetics.
Active Ingredient Number Two
Often urea is used in conjunction with an acne fighting active ingredient. The most common are salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.
Skin Softening Agent
Urea is sometimes used in products that help treat acne because its chemical makeup helps soften the skin. Concentrated solutions of urea and salicylic acid are also used to break up and remove foot calluses.
Many acne treatments can leave skin with damaged or flaky skin. Urea cream is sometimes used to help repair skin damaged by acne.
