ALUVEA™ — FORMULATED WITH CSP™ VEHICLE TECHNOLOGY CSP™ Vehicle Technology (Crystal Solvating and Penetrating) has two powerful vehicle ingredients unique to Aluvea™ (Urea 39%) Cream. These two ingredients work together to get urea into the skin where it works best. This technology helps to liquefy sharp urea crystals to enhance their penetration into the skin, limiting the amount of white powdery and chalky residue on the surface.
