What is it?

DL-Panthenol is a natural ingredient, found in plants and is a form of vitamin B5, also referred to as pantothenic acid.

How is it made?

This natural product is the result of a condensation reaction of D-pantolactone with 3-aminopropanol in the presence of methanol and dichloromethane.27. It is the alcohol analog of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), and is thus a provitamin of B5.

Why use it?

DL-Panthenol is a great humectant, meaning that it helps the skin to attract and retain it's own natural moisture. DL-Panthenol readily penetrates into the skin and mucous membranes, where it is quickly oxidized to pantothenic acid. Pantothenic acid is extremely hygroscopic, that is, it binds water effectively.

DL-Panthenol improves hydration, reduces itching and inflammation of the skin, improves skin elasticity, and accelerates epidermal wounds' rate of healing, making it a great addition to keep skin looking and feeling healthy.
