Panthenol Powder

Available in 50g and 100g

Panthenol, also known as pro-vitamin B5, is a popular ingredient in skincare, haircare, and cosmetic products due to its numerous benefits for the skin and hair. It is a water-soluble vitamin that belongs to the B-complex group of vitamins. When applied topically or used in haircare products, panthenol can have several positive effects:

  1. Moisturizing: Panthenol is a humectant, which means it attracts and retains moisture. It helps to improve skin and hair hydration, making them feel soft and smooth.

  2. Soothing: Panthenol has anti-inflammatory properties and can help calm irritated skin. It's often used in products for sensitive or sunburned skin to alleviate discomfort and redness.

  3. Healing: Panthenol promotes skin and wound healing by stimulating cell regeneration. It can be useful in products for cuts, scrapes, and minor burns.

  4. Hair Health: In haircare products, panthenol can strengthen hair strands, improve elasticity, and add shine. It is often found in shampoos, conditioners, and leave-in treatments.

  5. Anti-Aging: Due to its moisturizing and skin-healing properties, panthenol is sometimes used in anti-aging skincare products to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  6. Barrier Function: Panthenol can support the skin's natural barrier function, helping to protect it from environmental stressors.

Panthenol is typically well-tolerated by most skin types and is considered safe for use in cosmetic and skincare products. It is generally found in various personal care products, including lotions, creams, serums, shampoos, and conditioners. When looking for panthenol in the ingredient list of a product, you may see it listed as "panthenol," "dexpanthenol," or "pro-vitamin B5."
