Panthenol works by being absorbed into the skin. The key with Panthenol is that it keeps the moisture underneath the surface of the skin. This moisture absorption has the effect of “filling out” the area to which it is applied, naturally stretching the skin, erasing fine lines around the eyes and mouth and reducing the severity of wrinkles.

Pantothenic acid is then incorporated as an important component in the energy cycle of the cell. It can also attract water into the upper layer of the skin and is thus effective as a moisturizer and softener. Moreover, Panthenol can promote epithelization thereby enhancing the regeneration of the skin. Topically applied on the skin it is able to release vitamin B5 and remodel into pantothenic acid.
