CEM-UreaTM (45% Urea) is a keratolytic emollient, which is a gentle, yet potent, tissue softener for nails and/or skin. Each gram of CEM-UreaTM (45% Urea) contains 45% Urea, camphor, edetate disodium, eucalyptus oil, hydroxyethyl cellulose, menthol, methyl paraben, propylene glycol and purified water.
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.
INDICATIONS & USAGE
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, keratoderma, corns and calluses, as well as damaged, devitalized and ingrown nails.
- WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS
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, CEM-UreaTM (45% Urea) should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.
