HTH – the answer to dry skinHTH – the answer to dry skinHTH – a skin cream for dry skin


HTH was developed in collaboration with the pharmaceutical company Pharmacia and Professor Gunnar Swanbeck, one of Sweden’s leading dermatologists. Back the mid-1960s, Swanbeck discovered that dry skin is caused by a lack of hydrating agents, and demonstrated that a combination of two such substances, urea and lactic acid, was very beneficial for dry skin. This discovery resulted in several products, with HTH launching its first body lotion in 1970.

The skin’s natural moisturizers

Urea is found in the outer layers of the skin (stratum corneum) and belongs to a group of substances called Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs). Lactic acid also belongs to this group, with a positive effect on skin elasticity and cell renewal. Betaine is naturally-occurring in the skin too. Extracted from sugar beets, it works to bind moisture and improve skin elasticity. Betaine’s skin strengthening properties help make skin more resistant to irritants. Use HTH to nourish your skin with naturally-occurring skin components, helping your skin to maintain a good moisture balance, while staying smooth, supple and resilient.
