While a study performed at the Technical University of Munich, Allershausen, Germany, determines that topical skin treatments with the ingredient Dexpanthenol show an improvement in dry, rough skin within three weeks, Ryan and Jill Cote at ChinaDollSkin.com have also done a considerable amount of research and partnered with Tiffany Lauren® to provide a dry skin care solution for sensitive skin with the Ultra Gentle Sensitive Skin Care System.
In 1933, Roger Williams, PhD, discovered pantothenic acid and took its name from the Greek word pantothen (meaning “everywhere”) because it is present in all the cells of the body. Thus, it has been a well-known fact for a long time that pantothenic acid, also referred to as Vitamin B5, is one of the essential nutrients for the human body which is involved in many biological reactions.
A study performed at the Technical University of Munich showed that a form of Vitamin B5, called Dexpanthenol, acted like a moisturizer when applied topically to the skin. This is further established by a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Dermotology that found Vitamin B5 to be a humectant, which is a substance that actually promotes the retention of water.
The Oil-Free Hydrating Fluid formulated by Tiffany Lauren® gently reprograms the skin to hold additional moisture without adding oils for effective dry skin care. All of the effective, drug-free Tiffany Lauren® products avoid sulfates, mineral oil, petroleum, lanolin and the like.
Dry, rough skin requires hydration and Dexpanthenol can considerably improve certain symptoms of skin irritation, including dryness, scaling and roughness, after using it for about three or four weeks. Dexpanthenol has also been found to improve wound healing.
ChinaDollSkin.com distributes an Oil-Free Hydrating Fluid that actually reprograms the skin's moisture content at a cellular level. This product is part of their Ultra Gentle Skin Care System, which also contains a Calming Bio-Lipid Repair Cream, Calming Bio-Lipid Repair Fluid, Green Tea Gommage, Instant Calm Ultra Complex, Oil-Free Hydrating Fluid, Ultra-Gentle Cleansing Gel, Ultra-Gentle Cleansing Lotion and Ultra-Gentle Eye Cream.
