Panthenol or pantothenic acid are necessary for the preservation of the healthy complexion, beautiful hair and nails. The lack of panthenol has highly negative effects on the skin: the reduction of its elasticity, faster ageing process and progression of wrinkles; on the hair – the deterioration of its quality, loss of its shine and higher fragility. For the said reasons, panthenol is utilized in dermatology and in cosmetic applications. Panthenol concentration is also of high importance in dermatological and therapeutical products. It has been clearly proved that the products containing over 1 % of panthenol have positive effects.
