Tractopon offers a range of urea creams to care and improve the appearance of skins, or skin zones, which are dry, rough, thick, scaly or prone to chap.
Tractopon helps to reduce thick and dry skin conditions, which can eventually show as roughness, calluses, desquamation, or reach the point of chapping. It provides a pleasant sensation of softness and helps to relieve the itching coupled with dry skin condition. It contributes to lessen the depth of chaps in the horny layer and to restrain the formation of new ones. Skin recovers its flexibility and good appearance.
Tractopon in its version at 15% urea is a suitable cream for the care of the skin of diabetic people, typically
prone to be dry and scaly.
How to use:
Tractopon 15% and 30% urea: Apply once or twice a day. Wash and dry the skin and thereafter apply the cream rubbing it gently in with a massage, and specially insisting on the driest and roughest zones and on heel chaps. Its regular use obtains very good results. It leaves no oily after feel.
Tractopon® 15% urea: After a professional treatment by a podologist, removing or reducing callosities, corns and chaps, the regular use of Tractopon® lengthens the skin’s good condition and slows its thickening down. As a general care of feet, for not too dry or chapped skins, it is enough to apply the cream 2 to 4 times a week to keep the skin moisturized, smooth and with good appearance.
General (hands, knees, elbows, shins)
Tractopon 15% and 30% urea: Apply once or twice daily or every other day according to the dryness and roughness of the skin. Massage the cream until absorbed. It leaves no oily after feel.
Tractopon® 15%: Use regularly to protect and recover the skin of the hands from the strain and chaps caused by cold and damp.
Avoid applying the cream on zones with cuts or on blood producing chaps, as urea causes itching on open skin.
Tractopon combines a suitable emollient base, of smooth but not too greasy touch, with ingredients that hold beneficial properties for the care of dry, rough skins and/or with a tendency for developing hyperkeratosis:

From my experience, Tractopon cream 15% urea provides an effective softening and moisturizing for patients with dry skin, rough, with tendency of desquamation, hyperkeratosis (the legs, hands, toes, elbows, chest). It helps eliminate thickened areas of skin, the scales unsightly (keratoactive effect), and effectively moisturize. In addition, clinical studies have shown that urea has antifungal and antibacterial properties, which promotes healing cracked skin, eczema, psoriasis. I personally find it very good reason for which I frequently prescribe to patients with psoriasis or hyperkeratosis chronic eczema.
