Dexpanthenol, also known as pantothenic acid or vitamin B5, is a water-soluble vitamin that has gained popularity in the skincare industry for its numerous benefits to the skin.
Dexpanthenol is used in advanced skin care formulations due to its ability to penetrate the skin deeply, allowing it to deliver multiple benefits. Here are ten benefits of dexpanthenol in skin care formulations:
Moisturising: Dexpanthenol has moisturising properties that help to hydrate the skin, leaving it soft and supple.
Anti-inflammatory: Dexpanthenol has anti-inflammatory properties that soothe irritated and inflamed skin, making it suitable for use on sensitive skin.
Wound healing: Dexpanthenol promotes wound healing by stimulating the production of new skin cells and accelerating the skin's natural healing process.
Anti-aging: Dexpanthenol can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen production, leading to firmer and more youthful-looking skin.
Anti-acne: Dexpanthenol can help to reduce the occurrence of acne breakouts by regulating sebum production and reducing inflammation.
Sun protection: Dexpanthenol helps to protect the skin from the harmful effects of UV rays, making it a valuable ingredient in sunscreen formulations.
Nourishing: Dexpanthenol provides the skin with essential nutrients, promoting healthy skin function and appearance.
Calming: Dexpanthenol helps to calm and soothe the skin, making it an ideal ingredient for use in after-sun products.
Brightening: Dexpanthenol can help to brighten the skin by promoting cell turnover and reducing the appearance of dark spots.
Barrier protection: Dexpanthenol strengthens the skin's natural barrier, protecting it from environmental stressors and preventing moisture loss.
It is important to note that dexpanthenol is often confused with its precursor, panthenol.
While panthenol is converted to dexpanthenol by the body, dexpanthenol is the active form of the vitamin and is therefore more effective in skincare formulations.
The term "bioactive" refers to a substance that has a beneficial effect on living tissue. Dexpanthenol is considered a bioactive ingredient due to its ability to penetrate the skin and deliver multiple benefits.
