Panthenol (vitamin B5) is a vitamin that is fantastic for skin and hair care.

- Panthenol acts as a moisturiser by drawing water from deeper layers of the skin into the upper layers of the skin. It helps with softness and elasticity, and is anti-inflammatory. It stimulates skin regeneration and boosts healing.
- In hair care it is a small enough molecule to penetrate the hair and moisturise it, helping increase elasticity and reduce breakage. It makes hair softer and shinier, and reduces static.
