Food and energy supplements aren’t the only things sporting Vitamin B5 as an ingredient these days! If you look closely, you might have noticed that your hair conditioner, shampoo and face lotion all contain Vitamin B. Vitamin B5 is found in many foods and is an essential part of a healthy diet, however, it was only recently discovered that this same vitamin can be used topically and possesses many skin healing benefits!
Taken internally, Vitamin B5 helps boost the immune system, manage stress and increase energy. It also boosts skin health and regulates the amount of oil produced by the skin, making it a powerful natural acne treatment. When applied topically, Vitamin B5 (also known as Panthenol) can help increase skin health and wellbeing. It is commonly used to treat burns, bruises, wounds, rashes and ulcers. A recent study (University of Maryland Medical Center) showed that using Vitamin B5 as a topical treatment after surgery can help minimize scarring and reduce skin healing time greatly.
All of the benefits of Vitamin B5 are not fully known, but research continues to suggest that it is a powerful skin supplement when used both internally and externally! Next time you’re shopping for face lotion or skin products, be sure to check the label for Vitamin B5.
Additional skin benefits of topical Vitamin B5 include:
• Faster wound healing
• Improved appearance to ageing skin
• Improved barrier function
• Helps skin maintain moisture
