Explanations of the most important scar terms


Allantoin is a natural substance that can be found in various plants such as comfrey, salsify, maple or wheat germ. It is also produced by some mammals during metabolism.

Allantoin has been used for many years for wound healing. It helps to reduce itching and aids the rebuilding of the skin’s structure. Allantoin also increases the skin’s moisture retention, improves its smoothness and helps other active ingredients to penetrate deep into the wound.
