  • In a controlled 14-day trial, 27 subjects suffering from dry, cracked heels applied Flexitol® Heel Balm with 25% Urea twice daily.
  • Results indicate that regular use of Flexitol® Heel Balm increases the mean hydration levels in the heel skin and thus helps keep feet healthy and well moisturized.
Study conducted by the Australian Photobiology Testing Facility (APTF) at the University of Sydney, Australia in 2007.
  • In a double-blind comparative study, 30 outpatients with evidence of bilateral anhydrosis applied a 10% Urea cream to the right foot and a 25% Urea cream (Flexitol Heel Balm) to the left foot, once daily.
  • Results indicate that the 25% Urea cream increased skin hydration levels significantly more than the 10% Urea cream.
