The effects of panthenol
Panthenol is considered a miraculous ingredient since its action is threefold:
The Panthenol line has the following active ingredients:
Panthenol - “anti-stress vitamin” or the “vitamin of beauty”, stimulates skin epithelialization and regeneration, soothes, softens, and moisturises. Panthenol is a natural skin ingredient and an active cosmetic substance that increases the amount of water in the surface layers of the skin, thus providing hydration and softness and returning elasticity to the skin.
Vitamin E - acts as an antioxidant, protecting skin cells from the adverse environmental effects; as an emollient and humectant, additionally moisturising the skin and making it soft.
Allantoin - stimulates epithelialization and reduces redness and irritation.
Grape seed oil - rich in essential, omega-6 fatty acids, which stimulate the regeneration of the skin barrier and antioxidants, which protect the skin from free radicals.
Panthenol is declared safe by two relevant world institutions:
Cosmetic Ingredient Review
Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
Panthenol is considered very safe to use and is, therefore, allowed even in baby products.
