What is synthetic "Allantoin" ?
One thing synthetic allantoin is used for is as an ingredient in vegan cosmetics .."It is used topically as a moisturizer to treat or prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin and minor skin irritations & help skin to lock in moisture " And it is believed to promote cell regeneration~so it is said allantoin can help get rid of acne scars and create a more balanced skin tone ~ it encourages skin to shed dead cells and grow new ones promoting healthy cell development and preventing dull, sallow skin WOW this is truly some great stuff ! Don't you agree ?....In EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database Allantoin has a score of "0" and that is a fantastic score the lower the better and ya can't go any lower lol...It is used as a skin conditioning agent-skin protectant.
May be derived from animals but WE PREFER getting it from plants-we are cruelty free.. It is in many plants (especially comfrey~made from the root of the plant) and that is where we choose to get it from~a botanical source~Allantoin occurs naturally in the roots & leaves of the comfrey plant....It has astringent qualities making comfrey/allantoin helpful in treating psoriasis,eczema, dermatitis and even viral skin infections.
In cosmetics (especially creams and lotions) and used in treatment of wounds and ulcers.Allantoin also increases the smoothness of the skin...And promotes cell replication~comfrey also has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect making it popular among athletes... It is odorless, non-toxic, and non-allergenic in both its natural and chemically synthesized form. It is used in many,many skin care products including anti-acne products, shampoos, lipsticks,all kinds of lotions and creams and more !
It really is an amazing ingredient when you think about it with it's healing properties, cell regenerating/replication and anti-aging and more !
Knowing all this you might want to find a few products with allantoin !
Have a great Day !
