Each 100g Pepantine solution contains 5g Dexpanthenol.
Dexpanthenol is the alcohol corresponding form of Pantothenic Acid (Vit.B5). The alcoholic form has been used because it is more rapidly absorbed by the epithelium cells. Pantothenic acid participates in acetylcholine cycle and hence it helps in peripheral vasodilatation and improves peripheral blood circulation. In addition it has a role in the formation and degradation of fatty acids.
