Description

Dexpanthenol Pharmacodynamics
Dexpanthenol – a derivative of pantothenic acid. Pantothenic acid is a water-soluble vitamin of group B (vitamin B5) – a component of coenzyme A. It stimulates skin regeneration, normalizes cell metabolism, increases the strength of collagen fibers. Increased need for pantothenic acid is observed in skin or tissue damage, and its deficiency can be compensated by topical application of dexpanthenol. It has a regenerating, mild anti-inflammatory effect.
