On This Page
Urea 35% Hydrating Topical Foam is a keratolytic emollient in a water and lipid based foam containing lactic acid which is a gentle, but potent, tissue softener for skin and nails.
Each gram of Urea 35% Hydrating Topical Foam contains Urea 35% as the active ingredient, and the following inactive ingredients: dimethicone, ethylparaben, glycerin, lactic acid,
methylparaben, phenoxyethanol, polysorbate 20, povidone, propylene glycol, propylparaben, purified water, stearic acid, trolamine, and in propellants butane and propane.
Urea has the following chemical structure:
Topically applied urea dissolves the intercellular matrix of the skin which results in enhanced shedding of scaly, dry skin and thus a softening of the hyperkeratotic areas of the skin.
Urea topically applied to the nail plate has a similar effect on the intercellular matrix of the nail plate.
The mechanism of action of topically applied urea is not yet known.
INDICATIONS AND USAGE
For enzymatic debridement and promotion of normal healing of surface lesions, particularly where healing is retarded by local infection, necrotic tissue, fibrinous or purulent debris,
or eschar. Topically applied urea is useful for the treatment of hyperkeratotic conditions such as dermatitis, psoriasis, xerosis, ichthyosis, eczema, keratosis, keratoderma, and dry,
rough skin, as well as corns and calluses and damaged, ingrown and devitalized nails.
Known hypersensitivity to any of the listed ingredients.

Urea 35% Hydrating Topical Foam should be used only as directed by a physician and should not be used to treat any condition other than that for which it is prescribed. If redness
or irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult with a prescribing physician.
Pregnancy (Category B) – Animal reproduction studies have not been performed with topically applied urea and it is not known whether Urea 35% Hydrating Topical Foam can
cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. Nevertheless, Urea 35% Hydrating Topical Foam should be used by a pregnant woman only if necessary.

exercised by physicians when administering Urea 35% Hydrating Topical Foam to nursing mothers.
