The outer layer of your skin is called your epidermis, and it can be divided into five sublayers.
The outermost sublayer, the stratum corneum keeps unwanted molecules from entering your body and prevents water loss through your skin.
The water-retaining property of the stratum corneum largely comes from a group of substances known as natural moistening factors (NMFs). Among these NMFs are:
- various amino acids
- lactic acid
- pyrrolidone carboxylic acid
Urea is used in a variety of skincare products to target general skin dryness or medical conditions associated with dry or itchy skin. Urea can also help exfoliate dead skin build-up and may help target fungal infections.
Moisturizes your skin
A number of studies have found that dry skin can be successfully treated with creams or lotions containing urea.
Urea is a humectant. This means it keeps your skin moist by drawing water from the deeper layers of your skin and the air.
Urea is known as a keratolytic agent. This means it breaks down the protein keratin in the outer layer of your skin. This action can help reduce dead skin build-up and get rid of flaking or scaline skin
