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.
