Move over snail slime, a new skincare ingredient is set to take 2020 by storm. Found in the urine of mammals, including humans, Urea is a non-toxic protein by-product which plays an important role in the preservation of skin hydration and integrity. Often listed as Carbamide in various skincare formulations, this naturally occurring compound is synthetically replicated in cosmetics to combat dry, itchy, and flaky skin by attracting and binding to water molecules. Improving skin barrier function, Urea is considered the go-to treatment for problematic skin conditions such as hyperkeratosis, calluses, corns, psoriasis and eczema.

 

Designed to complement an evening skincare regimen, Evidence Skincare (ESK) today announces its latest cosmeceutical release, the Hydroxy Overnight Mask. Formulated with 5% Salicylic Acid, a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA), and 10% Urea, this versatile treatment actively assists in the management and treatment of acne, premature ageing and transepidermal water loss.

 

Penetrating the top epidermal layers and dissolving the intercellular junction (desmosomes) between healthy and dead skin cells, the mask gently exfoliates the face by breaking down structural keratin proteins and softening cornified skin cells. Offering a sebo-supressive effect, this gentle formulation inhibits excess sebum production and purges the skin of bacterial debris and acne-causing microbes.

 

Considered a gentler alternative to Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Salicylic Acid effectively treats and manages acne lesions, including post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation, redness and pore size, by operating as a proven antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent.

 

Serving as both a moisturiser and penetrative enhancer, Urea enables the Salicylic Acid to travel deep within the skin and address the physical signs of photodamage, including pigmentation, discolouration, texture, dullness, fines lines and wrinkles.

 

“Premature ageing is often packaged up with impaired skin barrier function,” said Dr. Ginni Mansberg, co-founder of Evidence Skincare (ESK). “Our skin is susceptible to both biological and environmental stressors, sometimes simultaneously, so it was important for us to create an affordable product that scientifically tackles multiple skin concerns at once. The Hydroxy Overnight Mask does this in as quickly as one application.”

 

Designed to be used on freshly cleansed skin 1-2 times per week as a sleeping mask – or as a spot treatment when needed – the Hydroxy Overnight Mask retails for $50 RRP and is available globally at www.eskcare.com. As a local, ethical, and cruelty-free online business, Evidence Skincare (ESK) offers free shipping Australia-wide and provides customers with a money-back guarantee on all purchases.

 

The brand also offers a free online survey to assist customers with their skin concerns and learn more about the active ingredients best suited to their skin type.
