Replenishing Body Wash 5% Urea

Gentle replenishing body cleanser for dry to very dry skin

This gentle yet effective cleanser will not wash away the skin's natural protective barrier, and is enriched with moisturising Urea and Lactate to soothe dry to very dry skin.

Many soaps and certain cleansers contain alkali detergents that wash away the epidermal lipids and moisturising factors that make up the skin’s natural protective barrier, leaving it prone to dryness and irritation. Replenishing Body Wash 5% UREA only contains mild cleansing agents, making it suitable for cleansing dry to extremely dry skin. In addition, it is also enriched with Urea and Lactate, natural moisturising factors that bind moisture into the stratum corneum (upper layer of the skin). As this ultra-mild wash formula leaves the skin’s natural barrier functioning, it is ideal for daily cleansing of dry or mature skin, or even suitable for use for skin affected by Psoriasis or diabetes.
