This dehydration can result in a variety of uncomfortable conditions: dry, scaly or cracked skin, which may become itchy or inflamed. The goal of effective treatment for these conditions is to re-balance the natural moisture content of the skin and so improve the general well-being of the patient.

Urea: the body’s own moisturising agent

Urea is a natural moisturising factor that helps our skin stay properly hydrated.

Even very dry, stressed or elderly skin can be helped in this way.
