Eucerin Urea Repair is another in the line of products by the same manufacturer in its range formulated for dry skin sufferers.
This cream is not to be confused with the replenishing 5% urea face cream or the all-over body moisturiser; it is designed for local application on dry skin patches anywhere on the body, and is especially effective for scaly, chapped, and rough patches on problem areas like the knees and elbows. This includes application on psoriatic skin, where moisture loss from already dry skin often worsens the condition.
The moisturising effect of this cream helps bring relief to skin that feels irritable and tight. It smoothens and softens the skin by rehydrating it and replenishing the urea and lactate that normal healthy skin uses to moisturise itself with. Although urea is not as marketed as many natural oils, people are beginning to seek out this ingredient, due to it's very strong moisturising properties. You can find more products with urea here.
These substances occur naturally in the body, with urea helping to draw moisture from deeper layers of the skin to the surface, where the dry patches are.
The moisturiser also contains carnitine, which is an amino acid that helps to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier to trap more moisture. As the skin becomes more hydrated, tension is eased, leaving it feeling more comfortable and looking healthier.
This cream is free of fragrance and colorants and is suitable for sensitive skin, though it is not recommended for infants or children to use.
