Description

WATEC®HU50 is a 50% Hydroxyethyl Urea water solution. Hydroxyethyl Urea is a moisturizing agent that offers excellent moisturization efficacy and skin elasticity. It significantly improves sensory skin feel compared to key benchmarks, and can be used in skin care products without imparting stickiness or tackiness to the formulation. Consequently, little or no addition of aesthetic modifiers is required to improve final skin feel.
