Panthenol (Provitamin B5) is a humectant, emollient and moisturizer. It readily binds to the hair shaft and is well known for its hair conditioning properties. It coats the hair and seals its surface, lubricating the hair shaft and making strands appear shiny.


In skincare, Panthenol has good skin penetration and is well known for its excellent hydrating and moisturizing properties. It also has reported benefits to inflamed skin and acne sufferers.

DL-Panthenol is a stable racemic mixture of D-Panthenol and L-Panthenol, supplied as a powder. The human body converts D-Panthenol to Panthenoic Acid (Vitamin B5).

**Current stock certified expiry date is July 2018 (24 months from date of manufacture).  That being said, we did not open the box (air tight foil bag) until September 2017, which means it is still good, although the manufacture will no longer guarantee it.  I have discounted the price to account for this.**
