Allantoin is a valuable cell-proliferating healing agent which stimulates healthy tissue formation. Allantoin has a pronounced keratolytic and skin softening action, acts as chemical debrider of necrotic and scaling tissue, clearing up the areas where applied. Allantoin is effective at quite low concentrations.
As a natural component, allantoin is found in comfrey.
Usage: allantoin can be used from 0.25% - 0.5%. (Allantoin can recrystallize (glass shards) at above 0.5% so are best added at no more than 0.5%
To incorporate allantoin into an emulsion, the emulsion should first be made and the allantoin added when the emulsion is around 120F. Since the suspension of allantoin can be difficult, mix well at the appropriate temperature and use a stick blender to prevent crystallization.
Use in formulations for minor cuts, scrapes, burns, sunburns, dry and/or cracked lips, and diaper rashes. Allantoin is nontoxic, non-irritating, and non-allergenic.
