What is Allantoin?

The Allantoin found in cosmetics and personal care items is extracted from the comfrey plant or can be lab-synthesized.

Allantoin is both emollient and anti-inflammatory, helping to soften and relax dry, irritated skin.

It encourages gentle exfoliation, dissolving bonds between the outermost layers of skin, improving overall texture.
