Deep Moisturizing Urea - Nature's Own Skin Moisturizer
Urea is an important part of your skinís natural moisturizing system.
The body uses manufactured urea in the same way as the urea naturally found in the skin. Scientists call it a true ďhumectantĒ because it is an important component of the bodyís Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF).
Urea causes hard dry skin cells to "unpack" and expose their water binding sites, thus enabling the cell to absorb and retain additional moisture. This action is also known as hydrotopic solubilization and several independent clinical investigations and studies prove that it works.
Unfortunately, urea on its own does not feel like a good moisturizing lotion. It is chemically unstable and actually leaves the skin feeling dry to the touch.
That is what makes DERMAL THERAPY such an effective formula. The pharmacists and scientists who developed DERMAL THERAPY use a special stabilized urea formulation that is precisely balanced and blended with other moisturizing ingredients including pure silk proteins and alpha hydroxy acids. The results are efficacious moisturers that actively replenish moisture to the lowest skin depths and leave the skin looking silky smooth and feeling wonderful.
Benefits of Healthy Skin
Skin is the largest human organ and it plays a vital role as your bodyís first line of defense against infection and other harsh elements. Even small breaks in dry skin are entry points that can lead to bacterial and viral infections.
Dry skin conditions are often associated with microangiopathy (when the blood vessels can't get an adequate supply of nutrients to the skin cells). This impairs skin hydration and prolongs the healing process.
Moisturized, intact skin is your bodyís best defense against bacteria and viruses because it is a naturally occlusive barrier that keeps moisture in and infectious agents out. Ordinary skin care products work by coating the skin with a layer of oils, waxes, silicone or petroleum gel which helps prevent the loss of moisture already present in your skin.
Unfortunately, many people have occupational situations or medical conditions that cause their skin to be so depleted of moisture that popular moisturizers which simply retain existing moisture are not sufficient. If you suffer from certain medical conditions or work in dirty, extremely dry or wet environments, you probably are already familiar with the problem of extremely dry skin.
How DERMAL THERAPY works
Dermal Therapyís moisturizers are not just beauty products. They are clinically proven formulations that actively restore moisture even to extremely dry skin.
Dermal Therapyís formulations contain appropriate concentrations of the elements similar to those naturally found in healthy skin. These include: urea, silk amino acids and alpha hydroxy acid (lactic and malic acid). Unlike other urea formulations, we do not need to add fragrances to mask odours.
A clinical test of the Dermal Therapy formulations with increased Alpha Hydroxy Acids has shown them to be very effective moisturizers with improved hydration of the stratum corneum (outermost layer of skin) when compared to urea formulations without this ingredient combination.
The lactic acid (alpha hydroxy acid) is believed to stimulate the skinís production of collagen. This is a process that improves the growth of new basal cells (skin cells) enhancing the naturally occlusive, protective skin barrier.The skin's natural barrier is important to keep moisture in and infectious agents out. This new skin growth displaces the old dry cells through exfoliation so the skin feels very smooth and elastic. The Dermal Therapy formulations contain both lactic and malic acids, to improve the exfoliation of dead skin cells. The amino acid derived from pure silk protein restores skin tone and luster to give the skin a wonderful, silky, smooth, non-greasy feel.
