Allantoin is endogenous to the human body and is found naturally in most organisms including, animals, and microbes. Redox are very proud to offer Allantoin to our clients.

Allantoin, also known as Aluminum Dihydroxy Allantoinate is extracted from the root of the comfrey plant, which is native to temperate climates of Asia and Europe. For century’s comfrey leaves were used to help heal minor skin injuries and swelling, so to then the allantoin extract has potent healing and soothing properties.

It can be found in various other plants and seeds such as beets, chamomile, wheat sprouts and even tobacco seeds and although it can be extracted for cosmetic uses from most of these sources, more often it’s the lab-created versions we find in products. Both versions are safe and effective when used in advanced skincare and are becoming more and more popular for efficacy and results.

Allantoin comes in a powder form and is found in many creams and liquids such as moisturizers, exfoliators, and masks. There is also evidence that it helps moisturize the skin by exfoliating and removing dead skin cells that prevent natural humectants from binding and retaining water in the skin.

It’s shortlist of benefits include anti-inflammation, skin hydration, wrinkle-smoothing, and exfoliating properties. But its versatility also includes benefits such as:

  • Improves skin-healing: It has been noted to help soothe injured skin and promote wound healing and is often used to treat skin irritation and rashes.
  • Improves skin dullness: Some of the causes of dull, dry skin is that the transit time from the base layer of the epidermis to the top layer takes longer as we age. Allantoin promotes faster cell proliferation and supports overall remodelling.
  • Rejuvenates the cells: Although it’s gentle, it can still be an effective anti-aging ingredient. Allantoin is highly beneficial in facilitating collagen synthesis as it stimulates the fibroblasts (cells responsible for producing collagen).
