----------UREA CREAM 40%
For external use only. Not for ophthalmic use.
Urea Cream 40% is a keratolytic emollient which is a gentle, yet potent, tissue softener for nails and/or skin. Each gram of Urea Cream 40% contains 40% urea and the following inactive ingredients: carbomer, cetyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, mineral oil, petrolatum, propylene glycol, purified water, triethanolamine and xanthan gum. Urea is a diamide of carbonic acid with the following chemical structure:
Urea gently dissolves the intercellular matrix which results in loosening the horny layer of skin and shedding scaly skin at regular intervals, thereby softening hyperkeratotic areas. Urea also hydrates and gently dissolves the intercellular matrix of the nail plate, which can result in the softening and eventual debridement of the nail plate.
PHARMACOKINETICS: The mechanism of action of topically applied urea is not yet known.
For debridement and promotion of normal healing of hyperkeratotic surface lesions, particularly where healing is retarded by local infection, necrotic tissue, fibrinous or purulent debris or eschar. Urea is useful for the treatment of hyperkeratotic conditions such as dry, rough skin, dermatitis, psoriasis, xerosis, ichthyosis, eczema, keratosis pilaris, keratosis palmaris, keratoderma, corns and calluses, as well as damaged, ingrown and devitalized nails.

PREGNANCY: Pregnancy Category B. Animal reproduction studies have revealed no evidence of harm to the fetus, however, there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Because animal reproductive studies are not always predictive of human response, Urea Cream 40% should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.
