Panthenol is often called Provitamin B5. Used on the skin, it rapidly converts to vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) which is a major constituent of Coenzyme A, which has a key role in the repair mechanism of cells and tissues.
It soothes and softens skin by locking in moisture. This prevents dehydration and dry skin and reducing Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL). It maintains the elasticity of the skin.
It also works with DMAE in the body to produce acetylcholine which tones and firms the skin. It minimizes itching. It is excellent for any skin repair and smoothes roughness and dryness.

It coats split ends to stop them getting worss
