Vitamin B5, also known as pantothenic acid, is a water soluble vitamin that possesses good skin permeability. As a component of coenzyme A, which plays a role in a variety of natural enzyme-catalyzed reactions, Vitamin B5 is vital to maintaining good skin quality. Possible skin benefits of Vitamin B5 include moisturizing, rejuvenating, and soothing properties. 1
The efficacies of these benefits rely heavily on Vitamin B5’s ability to reinforce the skin barrier. In doing so, the skin’s surface becomes better equipped to retain moisture levels, thus promoting hydration. These moisturizing properties also lend a hand in creating a soothing effect. When topically applied, Vitamin B5 can help to reduce damage on the skin’s surface that may be contributing to irritation. Lastly, certain concentrations of Vitamin B5 have shown significant potential in accelerating the rejuvenation of the skin barrier. Together, these benefits contribute towards enhancing and maintaining the skin’s overall appearance. Vitamin B5 is most commonly found in skincare products such as lotions, creams, serums and ointments.
