Well Luna,

You got me wonderin' so I posted over at the dish. Jacqui came along and posted this:

Urea was discovered by Hilaire Rouelle in 1773. It was the first organic compound to be artificially synthesised in 1828 by Friedrich Woehler, who prepared it by the reaction of potassium cyanate with ammonium sulfate. This disproved the theory that the chemicals of living organisms are substantially different from inanimate matter and started the discipline of organic chemistry.

So it appears to be man-made. I'm sure labrat will come along shortly and either verify or kabosh this.


Urea can be "man-made" through lab synthesis OR naturally, as an [human] excretion

The caviar looks great and I'd love to try it out (especially as I found a recipe today for Champagne Bubble Bath) but I'm British and I need to know what Crisco is as I've never heard of it...can anyone shed some light for me?

crisco is just vegetable oil shortening.  it's had an electron removed, or something along those lines, which allows it to be solid at room temperature.  It's used in baking, mostly.
