Okay, so, you may already know that B vitamins are essential for optimal health, but did you know they are one of the essential set of vitamins you need to achieve radiant, lovely skin? Pro - Vitamin B5 is a resident show off and all rounder when it comes to keeping skin soft, smooth, and healthy. Deeply hydrating, it’s a rejuvenator and moisturizer for your skin and helps to keep skin quenched by absorbing moisture from the air (genius!) Adept at stabilizing your skin's barrier function, while nourishing the epidermis, this water-binding substance will not only increase its hydration, but also help to improve its natural softness.
We're uberfans of a vit B5 ingredient or two here at Freya + Bailey towers, hailing it for its ability to transcend beyond its role as the most fabulous of moisturising agents to natural skin healer and protectant. It offers relief from itchiness, inflammation and redness, shielding the skin from irritation and helping to alleviate skin conditions, including acne, eczema and contact dermatitis. In fact, clinical studies involving those suffering from acne taking 2.2g of B5 every day for 12 weeks reported fewer spots and improved skin quality- largely due to its antibacterial and skin-softening qualities.
We love it in our FINESSE!! Ultra face scrub for its free radicals combatting, knock-out punch, courtesy of natural exfoliating properties that also promote skin cell regeneration. We’ve utilised this to deliver skin barrier fortification against micro-pollution damage and to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
So, there you have it, enjoy plumper, fuller looking skin with our range of vitamin b5 formulated skin heroes and give a hi five to Pro Vitamin B5!
