Why we use it

Allantoin is a powerful soothing, moisturizing, and exfoliating ingredient. Despite its exfoliation effects, it’s considered non-irritating and is ideal for those with sensitive skin.

What it’s in

Interface, Night Shift, Soft Touch AHA, Rewind, Velvet Cleansing Milk, Lipid Gold Eye Cream

Allantoin is the unsung hero of many skincare products. Even at low levels (less than 1%), allantoin can improve skin healing and moisture content. It’s also a mild exfoliant, helping the skin gently shed dead cells to reveal brighter, smoother skin. It’s incredibly gentle and can be used by all skin types.

A compound found naturally in most living organisms, allantoin has been most studied for its wound-healing properties. It has significantly anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects that can help speed up the healing process, as well as promoting healthy new cell growth. It can also help prevent scar formation.

Allantoin also has skin-softening, or keratolytic, effects, making it an excellent addition to any moisturizing product.
