Let's Talk Provitamin B5

Provitamin B5, also known as panthenol, is a small but mighty molecule that belongs to the B-complex family of vitamins. Here are four reasons why this ingredient is a game-changer for skin care.

Moisturizing Magic

Provitamin B5 is a humectant. Humectants attract and hold water molecules from the atmosphere. When applied to the skin, provitamin B-5 increases hydration by pulling water into the outermost layer of the skin, leaving it moisturized, improving texture, and eliminating dryness. 


Whether it's an allergic reaction for a day or two or a chronic condition like eczema, flaky, swollen, dry, itchy, red skin is not cute and sometimes even painful. Studies show that Provitamin B5 has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to soothe irritation and reduce redness and swelling.

Powerful Wound Healing

This mightly molecule also promotes the production of fibroblasts, which are cells that play a vital role in developing new tissue. After the skin is damaged from an injury or even just acne, using Provitamin B5 can help kickstart the repairing process.

Increased Collagen Production

Collagen is the protein in our skin that gives skin strength and elasticity. As we age, this protein naturally begins to break down, leaving skin saggy and wrinkly. Provitamin B5 has been shown to stimulate collagen production, creating bouncier, firm, supple skin.
