The two key ingredients are:
Urea - Urea has a long and colorful past dating back to the 17th century. Although it was long made from human and animal urine it's a relief to know it's now synthesized and created in a lab.
In fact Urea was the very first natural compound to be synthesized. Urea which is rich in nitrogen has an extremely wide range of uses from fertilizer to treating stage 3 renal failure.
For topical applications Urea slowly breaks down tough skin cells softening the skin over time which makes it ideal for diabetic foot care.
L-Arginine - is an amino acid and it's pretty much a wonder treatment. Used in a mind boggling array of treatments from post organ transplant recovery, certain cancers (especially breast cancer) to migraine headaches.
The properties that make L-Aginine so unique and varied are many but it's ability to draw blood to specific areas has proven particularly beneficial to diabetics. Although a controlled substance this cream has the highest percentage ( 10% ) you can buy without a prescription.
As for the cream itself, it's not runny and has the right amount of viscosity to it. The mentholated scent isn't offensive or obtrusive - and it absorbs quickly. Applying at night and wearing cotton socks will ensure better absorption and faster results.
The deal on Amazon for two jars is excellent and with your Prime membership you get free two day shipping to boot.
HOWEVER, the jars I received from Amazon were dated 11/07. They are not the current light bluish-green formulation. The jars I received contained a thick white cream. It smelled of camphor, like the current formulation, but appeared to be drying out. It was much thicker in viscosity than the newer cream - more like a paste than a cream. I checked the ingredient list and it is clearly not the same formulation as the current cream.
Frankly I am a little concerned about the efficacy of a six-year old jar of foot cream that is medicated to help with diabetic neuropathy. It is not worth the price savings to compromise the quality of a compound intended for such a critical purpose.
