What causes dry skin?
Skin has its own natural hydration system made up of water, lipids (or fats) and other hydrating components. When these components are depleted in skin, the outer layer is not able to function properly. The result is dry, scaly, itchy skin that needs moisturization and replenishment. A number of factors can contribute to dry skin: age, low humidity, excessive bathing, harsh product ingredients, and more severe skin issues.
What is urea and how does it relate to dry skin?
Urea is a component of the natural moisturizing system of the skin, it draws in moisture and is an important part of the barrier and help to protect the skin from drying out. Urea can become depleted in dry skin.
How does the Excipial U10 Healing Therapy Lotion help with super dry skin?
