    D-Panthenol

    D-Panthenol (or D-Panthenol 75L) helps to maintain healthy and hydrated skin. It provides barrier protection and helps to accelerate the repair of irritated skin, heal and sooth wounds, in addition to stimulation of epithelization. It is the gold standard moisturizer for very dry, cracked, and rough skin. It offers anti-inflammatory effects, in addition to increasing stratum corneum hydration by inducing long-lasting skin moisturization. It reinforces the skin barrier by reducing the transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and shows very good compatibility with all groups of cosmetic ingredients. In the example below, Panthenol enhanced skin barrier repair and stratum corneum hydration better than skin before irritation.

    Panthenol provides exception moisturization and skin barrier repair on irritated skin.
