If you've ever encountered the frustration of small, rough bumps on your skin, reminiscent of chicken skin or strawberries, you might be familiar with keratosis pilaris (KP). Often known colloquially as 'chicken skin' or 'strawberry skin,' KP is a common and harmless skin condition that can affect people of all ages. At Graham's Natural, we've developed a solution to assist those dealing with keratosis pilaris, introducing our KP Cream – a skincare hero designed to bring relief and rejuvenation to this common skin concern.
Understanding Keratosis Pilaris
Keratosis pilaris manifests as small, red or flesh-colored bumps on the skin's surface, often with a rough texture resembling sandpaper. This condition occurs when hair follicles become clogged with keratin, a protein. Typically found on the upper arms, thighs, cheeks, or buttocks, KP is more prevalent in individuals with dry skin or certain genetic predispositions.
Who Experiences Keratosis Pilaris?
KP is a common condition affecting people of all ages, particularly children and adolescents. While the precise cause isn't fully understood, genetic factors and a tendency toward dry skin seem to play a role. It's worth noting that the condition often improves with age.
Recognizing Keratosis Pilaris
Identifying keratosis pilaris involves noting small, raised bumps on the skin, often with a red or flesh-colored appearance. The texture can be rough, similar to sandpaper, and the affected areas might feel dry. While generally harmless, the appearance of KP can impact an individual's confidence and self-esteem, especially when more skin is exposed during warmer months.

- Moisturization: Urea is a humectant, meaning it attracts and retains moisture. It helps to hydrate and soften the skin, making it an excellent ingredient for individuals with dry or rough skin.
- Exfoliation: In addition to its moisturizing properties, urea also has mild exfoliating effects. It helps in removing dead skin cells, promoting a smoother and more radiant complexion.
- Barrier Repair: Urea supports the skin's natural barrier function, aiding in better protection against environmental factors and preventing water loss from the skin.
- Urea is generally well-tolerated by most skin types. It's particularly beneficial for those with dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, or conditions characterized by rough and flaky skin.
