What It Does
Traditionally used in herbal medicine to reduce irritation and support healing, allantoin is an extract from the comfrey plant that soothes and heals skin. It also promotes cell longevity, and combats skin dryness and dullness.
Why It Works
Allantoin contains keratolytic properties, meaning it exfoliates and removes dead skin cells. This process promotes cell turnover and skin regeneration to soothe, moisturize and heal skin.
