The well-known active ingredient urea sure is familiar to you – but do you also know the allrounder ingredient allantoin?
Discover what allantoin is and read about its effects on your skin.
Allantoin is originally a plant metabolic product, which is contained in the cell sap of plants such as legume, wheat germ and horse chestnuts in high concentrations. Already more than 2000 years ago the plants were known as remedies, but people did not know at that time that allantoin was responsible for this positive effects and did not use extracts with pure allantoin. Nowadays, allantoin can also be produced synthetically.
