What it is
Calcium Pantothenate is the salt of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). Also sometimes called pantothenic acid, it is naturally found in animal and plant tissue.
What it does
Calcium Pantothenate is a humectant: it attracts moisture to skin and hair, thus helping to keep them soft and hydrated.
One small study has also found it effective at treating acne.
Calcium Pantothenate is generally considered to be safe.
