*A note on allergies/sensitive skin and skin conditions: Before you start slathering on lotions that contain acids and urea be sure to do a patch test for a few days first and it’s also wise to talk to your doctor about your change up. Also, if you have very sensitive skin, are pregnant or may become or have any other medical conditions, you may not respond well to acids so proceed with caution. Some find synthetic urea to be a very controversial ingredient, so do your research before you buy.
