Urea 45% Nail Gel is a keratolytic emollient, which is a gentle, yet potent, tissue softener for nails and/or skin. Each gram of Urea 45% Nail Gel contains 45% Urea. Other ingredients: Camphor, Disodium EDTA, Eucalyptus Oil, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Menthol, Propylene Glycol, and Purified Water.

Clinical Pharmacology:

Urea gently dissolves the intercellular matrix, which results in loosening the horny layer of skin and shedding scaly skin at regular intervals, thereby softening hyperkeratotic areas. Urea also hydrates and gently dissolves the intercellular matrix of the nail plate, which can result in the softening and eventual removal of devitalized nail plate tissue.

PHARMACOKINETICS: The mechanism of action of topically applied Urea is not yet known.
