RonaCare® Allantoin

Merck KGaA makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

RonaCare® Allantoin is compatible with most cosmetic ingredients and has a usage level of 0.1-0.5%. The main function of allantoin is to stimulate cell proliferation and to promote skin repair by enhancing the rebuilding of intact granulation tissue. In pharmaceutical applications, allantoin is used e.g. in the treatment of ulcers, slow-healing wounds, and burns.

In cosmetics and skin care applications, allantoin is used as an additive in numerous preparations where it displays its anti-irritant, cleansing, and healing properties. Allantoin is non-toxic, non-irritating and effective in low concentrations. In hair care, the keratolytic action of allantoin is used to break up dandruff scales. The amphoteric character of allantoin prolongs keratolytic activity.
