Panthenol P100 (AakoVit P100) is the more stable alcohol form of Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5). When applied topically D-Panthenol is absorbed by the skin where it is converted into Pantothenic Acid.
AakoVit P100 is easy to handle and dissolves in warm water. Exposure to heat exceeding 70°C-75°C may cause undesired racemization.
Panthenol is stable in neutral or slight acidic aqueous solution (pH 4-6), less stable in acidic or alkaline aqueous solution due to hydrolytic cleavage.
Typical use level is 0.5- 5 %.
Stored under dry conditions in tightly closed dry containers, protected from light. Shelf life of at least 2 years under appropriate conditions of storage.
