Allantoin

A powerful emollient found in the leaf and roots of the comfrey plant, allantoin guards against transepidermal water loss to enhance skin’s moisture content and reveal a smooth, even tone.

An ingredient that has a lot of benefits is Allantoin. Due to the main properties of allantoin - astringent and anti-inflammatory, it was included in the list of local anesthetics of the World Health Organization (WHO). But the abilities of this ingredient are not limited to just a few opportunities. The list of its skills that have a beneficial effect on the skin condition also includes at least more than three superpowers. It is a good method for stimulating the renewal of the epidermis, helping exfoliate dead skin cells, and preventing the appearance of blackheads.

Being a powerful antioxidant, it neutralizes the harmful effects of free radicals, accelerates tissue regeneration, and slows down cell aging. In addition, it promotes skin healing, restores its barrier properties, and that’s why it is a frequent ingredient in cosmetics for people suffering from dermatitis.
