You may be thinking, what is dexpanthenol? Dexpanthenol is a derivative of pantothenic acid, a B complex vitamin. Dexpanthenol is usually applied topically in cream or lotion form to improve hydration and reduce water loss while helping to keep the skin soft and supple.
Dexpanthenol has good penetration qualities which means it is capable of sinking into the skin, enabling it to get to the heart of the problem rather than simply sitting on the skin’s surface.
As well as being a moisturiser and skin protector, it also has anti-inflammatory properties which makes it a perfect balm for calming raw, irritated skin.
