Description

This text has been automatically translated and may contain errors. Panthenol 75% is an active ingredient for cosmetics. It promotes, among other things, the repair of damaged skin, but is also a humectant.

Use

Panthenol 75% can be used in all water-miscible cosmetics, such as alcohol or gel-based shampoo and aftershave. In emulsions it can be added to the aqueous phase. Usual dosage is 0.2 - 5%, but there is no legal maximum. Panthenol is heat sensitive, so try to keep the temperature below 50°C. Stable in acidic and alkaline products, the pH range is 3 - 12. It can be used with all common cosmetic substances. Panthenol retains water and can therefore also be used as a humectant. It can be used as a light hair conditioner and as a component of a moisturizing cream. Reduce any other humectants in the formulation or it could become sticky. Not suitable for food or other internal use.

Properties

Panthenol 75% is a solution of approximately 75% d-panthenol in water. It is a slightly viscous liquid, clear, almost colorless, almost odorless. The substance has a long shelf life, if stored in a cool, dry and dark place. Other names include dextropanthenol, d-panthenol and provitamin B5. It has been fairly well researched for efficacy. Provided that the dose is sufficiently high, there is reasonable scientific evidence that it restores the barrier effect of the skin after damage. It strengthens the water-retaining capacity of the epidermis and makes the skin smoother. On that basis, you could use it in a cream for use on damaged skin or as an aftersun. In that case, use the maximum recommended dose of 5%. You can reasonably expect little benefit from a low dose. Even in a product that you rinse off, such as shampoo, there is less to expect than from, for example, a cream that you apply.

Sustainability

Panthenol occurs in nature, but is made entirely from synthetic raw materials for use in cosmetics. It is completely degradable in the environment and completely harmless to all types of organisms with which environmental damage is determined.

Packaging

The 10 and 50 ml packaging consists of a brown glass bottle with a black plastic (PP) cap. The 250 ml and 1 liter packaging consists of a brown plastic (PET) bottle with a black plastic (PP) cap.

Dangers

Panthenol 75% is not a hazardous substance. Nevertheless, we recommend that you use all raw materials wisely: keep out of the reach of children.
