Urea is a waste product of many living organisms produced by humans but also by many other mammals, as well as amphibians and some fish.
Urea was first discovered and isolated from human urine by a French chemist H.M. Rouelle in 1773. In 1828 a German chemist Friedrich Wohler then went on to create a synthesised version when he added silver cyanate to ammonium chloride solution producing a white crystalline material, which proved identical to urea obtained from urine. Urea was a very interesting and important discovery due to being the first organic compound to be synthetically formulated.

Our Ureka cream with Tea Tree Oil is used to treat tinea and other similar problems. The cream also helps to control odour causing bacteria and prevent infection. Ureka Tea Tree Oil contains calendula to help moisturise and provide smooth, supple skin. Tea tree often known as melaleuca oil has a long history of traditional use by the Australian Aboriginals for it’s healing properties. The tea trees were used in many different ways including inhaling the oil from the crushed leaves to treat coughs and colds, applying the leaves on wounds as a poultice as well as drinking the leaves as a tea to cure sore throats.

Podiatric dermatology is of a special interest to me, so one of my favourite products is their competitively priced `Ureka` foot care cream, available in 2 sizes, containing 10% and 25% of urea. Studies have shown that urea based creams lower TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss ) values after application, which is obviously a beneficial effect in terms of an improved barrier function in addition to moisturising and reducing the thickness of the horny layer of the skin.
