Using a ternary phase diagram, the authors developed systems based on nonionic surfactants, light paraffin oil, water, and (optionally) urea. Systems in which lamellar liquid crystals formed and in which urea was an ingredient showed higher occlusive power and lower TEWL in in vitro tests.

Whenever we are asked to formulate an emulsion, we think of and usually add a humectant. A humectant being defined as “a substance that promotes retention of moisture.” It is derived from Latin “hu-mecta-ns, hu-mecta-nt, present participle of hu-mecta-re, to moisten, from hu-mectus, moist, from hu-me-re, to be moist.” But these versatile materials deserve our respect. They have functions that go far beyond this simplistic definition!
