Product Description & Benefits:
Even when following a normal healthy diet, topical application of pantothenic acid may help prevent acne (Leung, 1995), help alleviate allergic reactions (Szorady et al., 1966), help with skin healing, and to some extent prevent damage to the skin concurrent to radiation therapy. Pantothenic acid is one of the vitamins of group B (B3), a component of coenzyme A, required in synthesis of fatty acids and sphingolipids. These components are of crucial importance for stratum corneum lipid bilayers and cell membrane integrity.

What's Do It Yourself (DIY) Skin Care?
DIY Skin Care is an emerging trend in the beauty world where consumers are taking control of their skin care regimen and are making their own home-based recipes of skincare products by combining scientifically proven active ingredients inside creams. DIY presents an opportunity to create affordable beauty products at your home and to try different ingredients to arrive at recipes that are the most optimal for your skin needs. You can use DIY to simply copy well-known, expensive creams and make your own cheaper home version, or to combine your favorite cream with an ingredient that you've found to be beneficial.
