Allantoin is a multi-functional skin care ingredient with soothing, moisturising, and anti-irritant properties. It's a chemical compound naturally produced by many organisms, including animals, plants, and bacteria.
This highly sought-after ingredient helps skin maintain hydration and barrier protection. It is an effective moisturizer that soothes and protects skin to reduce irritation, helping the skin better tolerate other ingredients and promoting healthy skin cell renewal, leaving you with a more radiant and youthful complexion.
It promotes exfoliation, so is an excellent ingredient choice when making cleansers and peeling masks.
It also reinforces the skin’s natural protective barriers, nourishing and protecting it against environmental stresses, whilst working to help your skin feel softer and more supple.
Allantoin is an ideal choice for those with sensitive skin, as it helps prevent and repair damage, while its moisturizing properties make it a great addition to products that address dry and chapped skin or lips.
