Urea

Urea is a colorless or white crystalline powder and is used as a humectant in cosmetics and personal care products. Urea is found in the skin’s epidermis and it is an active part of the body’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF) which functions to keep skin hydrated, protected and working efficiently.
It is an excellent hydrophilic molecule (water-loving) and holds on to water molecules in the epidermis and dermis, keeping the skin moist. When used in high concentrations, urea can be used an alternative to acid peels. It helps with the exfoliation process and enhances skin penetration for other active ingredients in cosmetic products.

Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7

Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 is a type of synthetic peptide composed of many amino acids to reduce skin inflammation and the skin damage. This peptide is believed to stimulate the regeneration of collagen in the dermis and improve the epidermal barrier. It suppresses the excess production of chemical messengers known as interleukins that can trigger an inflammatory response in the skin. The application of palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 will reduce inflammation and damages caused by environmental stresses like UV rays, pollution and stress.
