DL-Panthenol, aka Pro-Vitamin B5, is a stable lit racemic mixture of D-Panthenol and L-Panthenol. The human body readily absorbs DL-Panthenol through the skin and it rapidly converts D-Panthenol to Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5), a natural constituent of healthy hair and a substance present in all living cells. Only D-Panthenol is converted to Vitamin B5 and not the L-Panthenol. So the racemic D, L-Panthenol has only half of the physiological activity of D-Panthenol in skincare
Studies have show D-Panthenol promotes stimulation of epithelization, granulation, mitigation of itching and has an anti-inflammatory effect. When used in formulations over the course of three to four weeks, it has the potential to improve the appearance of the skin, including dryness, roughness, scaling, pruritus and erythema. Further, its moisturizing properties improve stratum corneum hydration, reducing trans-epidermal water loss and maintaining skin elasticity and softness immediately upon use. Panthenol also works with DMAE in the production of acetylcholine which firms and tones the skin..
* Both D-Panthenol and DL-Panthenol are equally effective for moisturization and improvement of hair structure.
ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE (Long known for its healing and moisturizing properties)
Aloe Vera has a long history as a safe and effective medicine and skin care aid that has traditionally been used to treat various skin conditions, including psoriasis, eczema, inflammation, burns and wounds. A great skin moisturizer, it helps keep skin supple by bringing oxygen to the cells, increasing the strength of skin tissue.
Studies show that Aloe Vera improves the skin’s ability to hydrate itself, aids in the removal of dead skin cells and has an effective penetrating ability that helps transport healthy substances through the skin.
The aloe plant contains over 75 different ingredients including:
Vitamins – Aloe contains 8 of the 13 recognized vitamins, including important antioxidants A, C and F,
Enzymes – catalysts enabling chemical reactions in the skin, which also produce analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects,
Minerals – including magnesium that prevents the formation of histamine responsible for many allergic reactions accompanied with itching and pain,
Phenolic compounds – potent antimicrobial agents having powerful analgesic effects, they can absorb ultra violet light, reduce the formation of melanin and decrease tendency to hyper-pigmentation,
Lignin – possessing a unique penetrative ability that allows to carry other active ingredients of topical preparations deep into the skin to nourish the dermis,
Saponins – cleansers having antiseptic properties,
Amino acids – building blocks of proteins. Aloe Vera gel provides 20 of the 22 necessary amino acids required by the human body and 7 of the 8 essential amino acids which the body cannot synthesize,
Salicylic acid – aspirin-like compound with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, additionally, it has a kerolytic effect which helps to debride a wound of necrotic tissue.
PROPANEDIOL- Glycols have been used in cosmetics and personal care products to impart beneficial properties such as humectancy, solvency, moisturization and emulsification. One such ingredient is 1,3-propanediol (PDO), which is manufactured by a process using fermentation (bio-based) process using corn sugar. Obviously, besides the efficacy properties of a raw material, another critical property is the lack of or low potential for dermal irritation and sensitization of skin.
To build on existing information for PDO, humans have been tested for effects to the skin using bio-based PDO of similar purity. For example, an acute dermal irritation study was conducted on 40 healthy Japanese volunteers, who received a single application of neat bio-based PDO, and no significant skin irritation was observed. However, acute animal and single exposure human studies are limited in their ability to predict skin reactions in humans exposed repeatedly to PDO. Therefore, human repeat-insult patch test (RIPT) dermal studies were conducted using bio-based PDO in comparison with PG to understand the potential to cause irritation and sensitization. The RIPT studies, described here, were designed using a range of concentrations and pH levels to cover a wide variety of potential personal care applications.
The search for cosmetic ingredients that do not produce skin reactions in humans, including sensitive sub-populations, is a continuing challenge. It is essential to introduce ingredients that have minimal potential for skin reactivity to reduce the risk of adverse skin reactions. As has been described, the potential of PDO to cause dermal effects in humans was explored in two repeat insult human studies to build upon existing animal tests and short-term human studies. Taken collectively, the data from these studies showed that PDO has low potential to irritate or sensitize human skin; additionally, its potential for these effects was lower than an incumbent glycol, PolyethyleneGlycol(PG).
POLYSORBATE20 a polysorbate surfactant whose stability and relative non-toxicity allows it to be used as a detergent and emulsifier in a number of domestic, scientific, and pharmacological applications. It is a polyoxyethylene derivative of sorbitan monolaurate, and is distinguished from the other members in the polysorbate range by the length of the polyoxyethylene chain and the fatty acid ester moiety.–
