Description

La Roche-Posay Iso-Urea Body Milk is designed for use by men or women with rough, very dry, or flaky skin.

With regular use, this product will relieve the symptoms of dry skin, making it smoother and helping to restore the skin barrier, which protects it from moisture loss. It also encourages the elimination of dead skin cells on the surface layers.

Together, these actions have a soothing effect, reducing irritation associated with sensitive, dry skin.

The body milk is lightly fragranced. It has a non-greasy formula that contains thermal spring water, which is rich in the antioxidant selenium, helping to soothe the skin. The body milk is easily absorbed and makes the skin feel suppler.

This product is most commonly applied on the arms, elbows, and legs.

Scientific Research

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts couldn’t find any scientific data on La Roche-Posay Iso-Urea Body Milk in people with psoriasis.

One of the ingredients in this product is urea, which has shown to have a direct effect on the rapid proliferating skin cells (keratinocytes) in psoriasis (1).

The product also contains glycerin. Both glycerin and urea have a water binding capacity, resulting in a moisturising effect (2).

Additionally, the product contains paraffinum liquidum known to limit the evaporation of water from the skin surface. In psoriasis the skin's water loss is increased in psoriatic lesions compared with healthy skin (3).
