What is Panthenol?
Panthenol is the precursor of Vitamin B5. It can be easily absorbed by the body through skin then rapidly converted to Vitamin B5.
Panthenol Prevents Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL)
A scientific study showed that Panthenol helps prevent transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Like Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Panthenol is suitable for all skin types including hyper-sensitive skin. It helps diminish the signs of ageing and improve the condition of dry and dehydrated skin.
When applied to the skin, Panthenol is converted to Pantothenic Acid, a substance that is essential in maintaining healthy skin. It helps prevent skin irritation.
Which Skin Type Can Benefit from Panthenol?
Due to its protective, soothing and hydrating properties; Panthenol is suitable for all skin types. It is greatly beneficial for tired, stressed and environmentally-challenged skin; therefore, Panthenol is very good for sensitive skin.
The Cosmetic and Skincare Uses of Panthenol
Panthenol helps strengthen skin's barrier function, plump up the appearance of skin and protect skin from pollution. Panthenol improves skin's elasticity, firmness and softness.
