Biological Name: 
(Extract from Symphytum officinalis)


Other Names:



Allantoin is a chemical compound that comes from the extract of the comfrey plant (Symphytum officinalis). Some of the benefits of allantoin have long been associated with cell regeneration and healing of the skin by removing dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin and encouraging the growth of new skin cells.

It is used as a moisturiser to treat and/or prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin and minor skin irritations. It is used in creams and lotions to effectively help promote wound healing and cell regeneration.

Is also has moisturising, soothing, and healing properties, which make it a popular ingredient in skincare formulations. It helps to promote skin cell regeneration, making it beneficial for wound healing, scar reduction, and improving the overall texture of the skin. Additionally, it has mild exfoliating properties, which can help to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores.

Some of the common uses of allantoin powder in skincare products include:

  1. Moisturisers and lotions: It is often added to moisturisers and lotions to provide hydration and improve the skin’s moisture retention ability.
