Panthenol is probably one of the least known humectants out there but we hope that after our eye-opening spotlight of this powerful ingredient you’re now on board the panthenol train. If you are, we’ve lined up some our favorites for you to drop in your cart the next time you go shopping.
The Simple brand does what it says; it keeps its ingredients shockingly simple (which explains the low price points) and by focusing on just a few ingredients, they’re able to create high quality products that focus on fixing your needs. The Hydrating Light Moisturizer is no exception to that: it’s a perfect blend of the purest possible skin loving ingredients (glycerin and borage seed oil) with added vitamins (B5 and E). This lightweight moisturizer is perfect for oily, normal and combination skin types and leaves your skin hydrated and nourished whether in the AM or PM.
The Skinceuticals HYDRATING B5 MASK is an intensely hydrating weekly gel mask that’s guaranteed to make your dry skin disappear thanks to the combination of these powerful hydrating ingredients: Panthenol (pro-vitamin B5), Glycerin, Sodium hyaluronate and Hyaluronic acid. It’s a perfect match for all skin types but even more so for dehydrated, acne-prone and aged skin. Apply this no-rinse mask (which doubles as a moisturizer, amazing!) for just 15 minutes and watch it work it’s magic.
Last, but certainly not the least, is the Klairs Fundamental Water Gel Cream. This moisturizer has a wonderfully dreamy creamy, milky texture and with a whopping 63.7% green tea water, it promises to deliver deep hydration with a feather light finish. Klairs Fundamental Water Gel Cream also has what the company calls “hydra emulsification system”. Sounds high-tech? It absolutely is. Let’s not get all science-y so the bottomline is: it allows this cream to hydrate deeper layers of our skin, resulting in a healthier and stronger skin moisture barrier(probably because of our lovely panthenol). This is a miracle in a jar for dry skin and quite frankly any skin type that’s dehydrated. Just slather it on in the AM or PM and watch the dryness fade away.
