Posted on 24 February 2022
When we launched our first topical hair product, we wanted to create a simple formula that could have a major impact on the health and feel of you hair. We started with foundational one foundational ingredient, bamboo extract, then added panthenol as a the perfect compliment.
What Is Panthenol?
Essentially, panthenol is another name for vitamin B5. You may have heard it referred to as "provitamin B5." What's amazing about this ingredient is that it has the ability to enhance moisture by creating a protective layer on the hair strand. This allows panthanol to enhance natural shine without leaving the hair feeling greasy or oily.
Panthenol also has the ability to penetrate our hair strands driving its moisture capacity inside the cuticle layer. As it binds to the hair follicle, panthenol acts as a humectant by drawing moisture from the air into the strand. This plumps the hair making it appear and feel thicker. Panthenol also doubles as a hair strengthener by filling in cracks caused my mechanical damage associated with chemical treatments and everyday styling.
Panthenol does a wonderful job at moisture absorption is which why it's featured in our Beautifully Bamboo conditioner boost, a concentrated formula that instantly elevates all of your favorite hair and skin products. All you have to do is add a tiny amount to your moisturizer, lotion, conditioner, or leave-in to experience the difference of enhanced moisture and shine. With our conditioner boost, a little goes a very long way. It's an all purpose beauty product that you can't be without.
