WHAT IS Xurea®
Foot balm Plus?
Xurea® Foot balm Plus has been specially formulated with the patient in mind. Thanks to the combination of fourteen actives including, urea, glycerin and sunflower oil, the balm immediately hydrates, providing a smooth, non-greasy feel with the added benefit of microsilver to support your skin’s natural defence mechanisms from bacteria.
Apply once or twice daily to clean, dry skin. For best results cover the heel area at night with socks.
After just one treatment you can often see a visible improvement, and with each subsequent day of treatment you will see an improvement in the results.
Once the course of treatment is complete, we recommend switching to a program of maintenance therapy to maintain the good results that have been achieved and you could then just apply once a day

Xurea® Foot balm Plus contains high purity micro-silver in the formulation. Silver ions are well known for their antimicrobial properties creating an environment that is inhospitable to pathogens.
The optimal pH value of skin on most of our face and body lies between 4.7 and 5.75. A pH of 7 (that of pure water) is considered neutral. Anything below that is acidic and above it alkaline, so skin’s natural pH is mildly acidic. This mildly acidic pH is created by skin’s acid mantle, the water part of the hydrolipid film that protects the external layers of skin.
Some soaps, creams and foot balms contain chemicals with an alkaline pH and these can be particularly detrimental to skin pH as they can overtax the skin’s natural neutralising capability, damage cell structure and impair the skin’s protective barrier. As a result, skin can dry out and become sensitive or even hypersensitive.
The pH of XUREA® Foot Balm Plus is between 4.7 and 5.25 so it is perfectly matched to the natural pH of the skin so there is less chance of local irritation on application.
In usual use a 75ml container can last up to one month if applied once a day. For feet that require intense hydration it is recommended to use the product twice a day for the first few weeks, decreasing to once a day based on improvement of the foot condition.
