That should be many: Just look at the label and you will likely find many other options.

Not all have urea: Urea is a specific ingredient of certain facial cleansers, and there are products available that do not contain urea. If you are specifically looking for a scrub, some urea-free examples are: Clean and Clear Deep Action or Morning Burst Scrub, Neutrogena Deep Clean Scrub, Garnier Skinactive Scrub. Other more gentle options without urea include Cetaphil cleanser, or Purpose Cleansing Wash.

Yes: Many do not have this including salt base scrubs
