Urea is an organic chemical compound that we refer to as carbonic acid diamide. It is the end product of the metabolism of proteins and other nitrogenous compounds in ureotelic animals (which excrete most of their nitrogen as urea through metabolic processes). On an industrial scale, urea is produced by conducting a direct reaction of carbon dioxide with ammonia under pressure and at temperatures of 160 to 200°C.
The product is highly hygroscopic and comes in the form of white granules. It is white, crystalline and odorless, and does not dissolve in fats. It usually occurs in concentrations of 45%, 40% and 30%.
Alternative names: carbamide, E927b, CH4N2O.
The shelf life of Urea is 12 months.

Urea is most commonly used as a fertilizer. It is used on almost all soils except those with a very acid reaction or freshly calcareous soils. Urea helps in growing crops, vegetables, flowers, trees, fruit bushes or lawns. It is also an ingredient in sprays.
Urea is often used in the purification of exhaust gasses, as a reducing agent in catalytic converters and in cosmetics, where it has moisturizing, antiseptic and exfoliating effects. That is why you can find it in moisturizers, exfoliating creams for feet or cosmetics for acne-prone skin. Product also has antibacterial and antipruritic properties and is a component of ointments and medicines for the treatment of warts or wounds.
