Allantoin

Allantoin is a moisturising and soothing ingredient that is found naturally in the root of the comfrey plant. It helps hydrate skin and lock in moisture. It’s one of the few ingredients that can do both.

A water-soluble ingredient that fights transepidermal water loss (TEWL), allantoin helps keep skin soft and smooth so it can better absorb and retain hydration. It also serves as a humectant, meaning it binds water to add hydration to the skin.

Allantoin supports collagen synthesis. It stimulates the fibroblasts (cells responsible for producing collagen) and boosts extracellular matrix synthesis. This means new heathy skin, faster.

Allantoin prevents itchy, flaky, dry skin by softening the dead skin on the surface so it can easily slough away. this process is known as desquamation. It’s also an excellent anti-irritant.
