What Is Panthenol?


Also known as pro-vitamin B5, panthenol is a common ingredient in many skincare and hair care products. It helps calm and relieve dry, rough, or irritated skin.

Panthenol stands out for its ability to stimulate cell regeneration and skin healing. It accelerates the healing of minor wounds, sunburns, and other skin issues, promoting healthier skin and faster recovery.

It is widely used in hair care products due to its ability to penetrate the hair shaft and retain moisture.

Panthenol is found in many foods such as meat, eggs, dairy products, whole grains, and vegetables. It is also produced synthetically and used in skincare and hair care products. You can look for it on product labels as "panthenol" or "provitamin B5".
