Ingredients Explained

These ingredients are found in both products.

Ingredients higher up in an ingredient list are typically present in a larger amount.

Skin Conditioning
Loved

Panthenol is a common ingredient that helps hydrate and soothe the skin. It can be found naturally in our skin and hair.

This ingredient is also referred to as pro-vitamin B5 or dexpanthenol in dermatology.

Panthenol is famous due to its ability to go deeper into the skin's layers. Using this ingredient has numerous pros (and no cons):

Like hyaluronic acid, panthenol is a humectant. Humectants are able to bind and hold large amounts of water to keep skin hydrated.

Once oxidized, panthenol converts to pantothenic acid. Panthothenic acid is found in all living cells.

This is the best lip balm ever. Using it once before bed keeps my lips soft and hydrated for hours and hours, minimising my daytime lip balm use, if I skip it for a few days I'm more likely to get peeling lips. I always stock up when I or my family or friends go to the USA.

Pro tip: cut open the tube when you think it's finished. I have used a cut-open tube since September 2023 (it's now March 2024) and there is PLENTY left. Shout out to Tana Mongeau for introducing me to this.
