Urea, the diamide of carbonic acid, is an almost odourless, crystalline substance.
In cosmetic products, urea is mainly used because of its moisturising properties. Depending on the level of input concentration, urea has numerous positive effects on the skin, for example, it is water-binding, improves the moisture absorption capacity of the skin, is antimicrobial and soothes itching.
