Vitamin B5 - for healthy and happy skin

 

  • Vitamin B5 plays an essential role in the processes of cell division. In vitro studies have confirmed that panthenol after penetration into the tissue, is converted into pantothenic acid, i.e. vitamin B5. Then it contributes to the growth and regeneration of epidermis and dermis cells. When applied externally, panthenol increases the amount of energy in the skin and accelerates the synthesis of lipids, proteins and lipoproteins, acting as a stimulator of cell division of the epidermis and dermis.
