Glycerin and Hydroxyethyl Urea
Date:2022-01-26 03:36
Glycerin is widely considered to be the industry bench mark for skin moisturization.  It has been demonstrated by numerous methods to be an effective moisturizer when used at levels above 3%, although the choice of vehicle can influence performance.
Glycerin is also associated with undesirable aesthetic characteristics such as tackiness, greasiness, residue and gloss during and after application.

Is there an alternative ingredient that moisturizes as well as glycerin but also has more favorable sensory attributes? The research suggests one such candidate is hydroxyethyl urea. 

Hydroxyethyl Urea (DS-18 by Guangzhou Dosen Chemical) have been shown to have similar moisturizing properties to glycerin with a significantly better skin feel than glycerin.
