  • Clinical Pharmacology


    Urea gently dissolves the intercellular matrix which results in loosening the horny layer of skin and shedding scaly skin at regular intervals, thereby softening hyperkeratotic areas. Urea also hydrates and gently dissolves the intercellular matrix of the nail plate which can result in the softening and eventual debridement of the nail plate.

  • Pharmacokinetics

    The mechanism of action of topically applied urea is not yet known.


  • Indications and Usage

    For debridement and promotion of normal healing of hyperkeratotic surface lesions, particularly where healing is retarded by local infection, necrotic tissue, fibrinous or purulent debris or eschar. Urea is useful for the treatment of hyperkeratotic conditions such as dry, rough skin, dermatitis, psoriasis, xerosis, ichthyosis, eczema, keratosis, keratoderma, corns, and calluses, as well as damaged, ingrown and devitalized nails.
