Panthenol Benefits For Your Skin

What is Panthenol?

Panthenol is pro-vitamin B5 commonly used in skincare as a hydrating and soothing agent. When it is applied to the skin, panthenol gets converted to pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), a vitamin which enhances skin health and appearance.

Panthenol in Skincare

Panthenol is one of the favourite skincare and haircare product's ingredients; often found in face serums, moisturisers, shampoos and conditioners. It is particularly effective in preventing skin dryness and dehydration as well as slowing down the signs of ageing.

Panthenol Benefits For Your Skin

1. Panthenol prevents transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and significantly improves the skin's moisture content.

Studies showed that panthenol prevents transepidermal water loss (TEWL), strengthens skin's moisture barrier, restores softness and protects the skin from dryness and dehydration. Panthenol significantly strengthens and revitalises the skin's outer layers known as stratum corneum and epidermis. Panthenol improves the overall skin health and appearance regardless of skin type. 

2. Panthenol significantly improves skin elasticity and reduces wrinkles.

A 28-day study on healthy individuals with dry skin showed that panthenol significantly improves skin's moisture content, elasticity, smoothness and texture. Panthenol also visibly reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

3. Panthenol evens out the skin tone.

Panthenol is every effective at evening out skin tone. Studies showed that panthenol promotes the synthesis of glutathione in the skin, a powerful antioxidant which binds free radicals and peroxides that are known to trigger the formation of melanin. However, for the skin brightening effects, it is better to combine panthenol with both niacinamide and n-acetyl glucosamine that are known to be more effective in reducing dark spots (hyperpigmentation).

4. Panthenol soothes and calms sensitive skin.

Clinical studies on atopic dermatitis showed that panthenol has great soothing and wound healing properties to calm skin sensitivity and remarkably improve overall skin health. It is also very effective in restoring skin barrier, reducing skin inflammation and redness. 

5. Panthenol enhances skin's firmness, volume and strength

Studies proved that panthenol increases the proliferation of fibroblasts in the skin and the synthesis of skin components including collagen, elastin and glycans. As a result, the skin's firmness, volume and strength are visibly enhanced. 

Can all skin types benefit from Panthenol?

Yes, all skin types can benefit from panthenol skincare products. Panthenol is not comedogenic. It doesn't clog pores. Panthenol enhances skin health which is beneficial to all skin types.

Can you use panthenol skincare products during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

Yes, panthenol skincare products are safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Is there any ingredient recommended to be used together with panthenol?

Yes, there are some skincare ingredients which work synergistically with panthenol. The skin hydrating affects of panthenol can be enhanced by mixing it with hyaluronic acid or sodium hyaluronate in skincare formulas. The skin soothing effects of panthenol can be enhanced by mixing it with bisabolol. For best anti-ageing effects, look for panthenol skincare products which also contain 24 karat gold, peptides and antioxidants like Rose Royale Supreme Anti-Ageing Serum. For the best skin brightening effects, panthenol should be used together with niacinamide (vitamin B3) and n-acetyl glucosamine in the skincare formula; exactly like in White Orchid Ultra Brightening Serum.

When is the best time to use panthenol skincare products?

Panthenol is not phototoxic. It doesn't cause photosensitivity. You can use panthenol skincare products at anytime during the day and night.
