Why do we love Walkers Urea Cream?
We usually recommend Walkers urea-based cream for dry, calloused, and cracked skin.
The active ingredient ‘urea’ increases skin moisture by removing dead skin cells and improving the ability of the skin to hold water.
These factors make this cream highly moisturising.
We sell 2 different types of Walkers urea cream – urea 15 and urea 25.
Urea 15 cream is best used as an everyday moisturiser for dry skin. This type of urea cream can be used all over the body for dehydrated and flaky skin.
It is recommended to use urea 15 daily for the best results.
Urea 25 is best used for extra dry skin and cracked heels. Urea 25 can also be used on dry elbows or other extremely dry patches of skin.
Urea 25 is best used a few times per week for extra dry areas, although it can be applied daily for individuals suffering from extra thick calloused areas.
How to Apply Creams?
If you do have dry skin, it is best to apply the cream daily. The best time to apply moisturising cream is after a shower when the skin is warm and therefore more likely to absorb the moisturiser.
Wearing socks after application (if tolerable) can also help with cream absorption and to make it comfortable to walk around after application.
