Its! The! Urea! I bring this up every single time anybody ever mentions using urine topically for anything. Besides water, urine is mostly urea. Urea has plenty of topical uses, because it's keratolytic, which means it helps your skin slough off dead skin cells and retain water.

It is sometimes used to promote healing on open/infected wounds, for the same reason maggots are sometimes used. (Actually the urea in the maggot's waste is part of why maggots work so well.) The dead skin tissue goes away faster, and the healthy skin tissue is healthier, and therefore heals faster and is more resistant to spreading infections. It's also commonly used in beauty/skincare and dermatology to soften skin, fight acne, reduce eczema and psoriasis flare-ups, and stuff like that.

Research on the subject, more research, technically a blog post but super detailed assessment of the research with explanations in simple language.

You do not have to pee on yourself or drink urine to get these benefits! Smear it on your whole body with something like this. Use something gentler on your face, like this. I can't find any urea-containing products that are designed to go on open wounds, but urine isn't really supposed to go on open wounds either, so by all means, use the lotion if the only other option is peeing on yourself.

By the way, probably not a great call to pee on the hands of gymnasts. Urea cream is promoted as a callus remover, and IIRC, gymnasts really need those calluses.

Don't buy a $800 cream, that's insane! Urea is a common moisturizer ingredient, and there are many reputable brands of urea on Amazon:

  • Eucerin Roughness Relief Spot Treatment (30%, though it doesn't say on the tube)
  • Udderly Smooth (up to 30%)
  • PurSources (up to 40%)
  • RevitaDERM (up to 40%)

    You likely won't see much difference between 30% and 40%, in my opinion.

    There are some combination creams. Topix sells a product called Glycolix that's 15% urea and 15% glycolic acid. Studies have shown that urea works even better when combined with salicylic acid, and glycolic acid should be similar. It's also sold under the brand name Replenix, for some reason. It's a bit expensive, and I've not tried it, but it should be good.

> Hydrolyzed silk proteins, humectants, anything thats powdered, if I have no water, will it still mix?

They won't dissolve in anhydrous formulas.

It's cheaper to buy lotions than making your own.

It does amazing things for really bad lesions in the patients we used to get for radiation
