Panthenol and Dexpanthenol are two names commonly used for the same ingredient. It is a derivative of Pantothenic Acid (a B Complex Vitamin) and enhances skin regeneration and repair. When applied regularly, Panthenol/Dexpanthenol has been proven to considerably improve symptoms of skin irritation such as dryness, roughness, scaling and redness.
Panthenol/Dexpanthenol is also an effective moisturizer. It improves hydration in the outermost layers of the skin and helps to reduce transepidermal water loss.
