It is well known for its skin soothing, healing and keratolytic (ability to remove dead skin cells) properties. It helps shed the outer layer of the epidermis and foster the healthy tissue formation. It also softens the skin and enables it to absorb more moisture. Allantoin is also widely used as a remedy for burns and scars which only confirms its strong beneficial properties.
You may know glucose by another name: blood sugar. Glucose is a key for keeping the mechanisms of the body perfectly functioning. When our glucose levels are optimal, it often goes unnoticed. But when they stray from recommended boundaries, you'll notice the unhealthy effect it has on normal functioning. Implementing glucose in our formula is crucial to improve not only the cosmetic, but also the general physical performance of the body.
Physical performance is mainly a function of an individuals's size, shape, sex, and age, but not entirely so.
Urea is a naturally occurring substance found in the surface layer of our skin, and it is an active part of our natural moisturising factor (NMF), which helps to keep the skin hydrated, protected and working efficiently.

Lysine is one of the essential amino acids that is a necessary part of your diet for overall good health. Lysine helps form collagen which is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It builds cartilage, bones, and connective tissues. Lysine helps in the formation and, at the same time, prevents breakdown and excretion of collagen.
Our skin naturally contains PCA, but as we age these levels drop quite considerably. Sodium PCA is considered an important humectant, and due to its extremely water absorbent properties can hold several times its weight in water, thus helping to reduce loss of moisture, through evaporation. This ingredient is one of the major components of our skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF).
