Pharmacological properties

dexpanthenol - the active substance of the drug bepanten® cream, in the cells quickly turns into pantothenic acid and acts like a vitamin. Dexpanthenol is better than pantothenic acid when absorbed locally.

Pantothenic acid is a component of essential coenzyme A (CoA). In this form of acetyl coenzyme A, coenzyme A plays an important role in the metabolism of each cell. Pantothenic acid is, therefore, necessary for the restoration and regeneration of damaged skin and mucous membranes.

Pharmacokinetics Dexpanthenol is rapidly absorbed by the skin, after which it immediately turns into pantothenic acid and is added to the internal depot of this vitamin.

In the blood, pantothenic acid binds to plasma proteins (mainly with albumin and β-globulins). In healthy adults, its concentration is approximately 500–1000 μg / L and 100 μg / L in blood and plasma, respectively.

Pantothenic acid is not metabolized in the body and is excreted unchanged. After oral administration, 60–70% of the dose is excreted in the urine, the rest with feces. In adults, 2–7 mg of pantothenic acid is excreted in the urine per day, in children - 2–3 mg.
