If you are looking for a full pro-vitamin load of active vitamin B5 in your formulations, Vitamin B5 (Calcium Pantothenate) Powder is the best ingredient to use. Because calcium pantothenate (B5) is water-soluble, our bodies do not retain it. Daily applications need to be applied to see continuous benefits. Since it is a humectant, B5 stabilizes the skin barrier function, reducing the risk of dehydration as it increases water absorption. By applying a pro-vitamin B5 formulation to the skin, you will not only increase its hydration but improve its softness and elasticity. For this reason, Vitamin B5 (Calcium Pantothenate) Powder is a great additive for the treatment of dry, scaly, or rough skin. With ongoing, consistent use in lotions and creams, you will see a noticeable difference.
The main difference between Vitamin B5 Powder and Panthenol DL (PDL) is that when PDL is absorbed into the skin layers, the “D” component is converted into vitamin B5. Meanwhile, the “L” component is not absorbed as easily. Even though the L portion still holds moisture benefits to the skin, they are different than the easily absorbed “D” portion.
