I have very dry, sensitive feet and I'm looking for a natural option. Have you heard of any cases of a reaction to Urea? Thank you.

Hi Linda,<br>
<a href="/urea-callus-cream">Natural Urea Cream</a> was specifically developed by our team to soften skin but also to 'chemically' debride thick, tough skin like <a href="/cracked-heels">cracked heels.</a>  Although Natural Urea Cream is safe enough to use every day, I'd recommend you first start with <a href="/antifungal-healing-foot-cream">Antifungal Healing Cream.</a>  Antifungal Healing Cream is our best selling skin cream.  Don't be mislead by the name because in addition to the antifungal properties, Antifungal Healing Cream is also a skin softener and hydrating cream.<br>
Hope this helps.<br>
