Urea USP
CAS No. 57-13-6

Urea is a byproduct of protein metabolism and a normal metabolic constituent in biological organisms. It is a naturally occurring compound, appearing in our urine and that of all mammals, but it is manufactured synthetically on a large scale worldwide as it is used in many industrial processes.

With its ability to disrupt the noncovalent bonds in proteins, urea can be a powerful protein denaturant.  This keratolytic property can be exploited in topical preparations containing high amounts of urea where it is used to help with the rapid turnover of skin cells leading to the improvement of dry scaly skin.  Urea is both a humectant and moisturizer that promotes rehydration of the skin and helps to replenish natural urea content of the skin lost with cleansing.  While the mechanism of action remains unclear, Urea, applied topically, acts as an anti-inflammatory agent on dermatalogically compromised skin.

Urea is readily soluble: 1 gram dissolves in 1 ml water, 10ml of 95% alcohol or 2 ml of glycerol.

So that our staff may enjoy the Labor Day Holiday, Lotioncrafter's offices will be closed on Monday, September 3rd. We will reopen on Tuesday, September 4th. During this time, we will not be returning phone calls or email messages. Shipping will resume on Tuesday, September 4th. Orders, emails and phone calls will be handled in the order received, as best we are able. Please expect some delays as we work through the holiday backlog! We also cannot guarantee changes to orders will be seen before orders have shipped, those that we do catch, will be held back to adjust, which will mean a shipping delay. We appreciate your understanding. Have a safe and happy Labor Day!

Our Customers Say...
The day I realized that topical vitamin C was causing my acne was the beginning of a long journey for me. Vitamin C is present is just about every kind of makeup and every face cream available on the market. LotionCrafters, with their amazing choice of products, and their detailed information has allowed me to create my own vitamin-c-free formulations, and have healthy skin once again.

I LOVE Lotioncrafter! First of all you have the ingredients that I need and information on all of those ingredients. Second of all, even though your facility is a LONG way from me in Texas, my order is processed and shipped so fast that I can get my things faster than I can get them from other companies that are much closer to me. I love the rectangular shaped bottles that are used for packaging the ingredients because that shape maximizes my limited storage space. Great quality and great service! Thank you!
Pat Tyson, (Pitterpat Skincare, LLC)

Out of all online services that I have used before "Lotioncrafters" is the fastest!! I put my order in and an hour later my stuff was ready for shipment. So impressive :-) For me and my DIY lotions and potions I'll only use Lotioncrafters. I'm very happy with the products I received.
