Feel deep hydration for 72 hours

Millions of consumers worldwide are affected by skin conditions that cause unpleasant sensations such as itching, flaking and stinging, or simply an uncomfortably dry and taut feeling. Thanks to its unique affinity to the skin, PENTAVITIN®, DSM's natural moisturizer, ensures instant, deep hydration by generating a moisture reservoir that lasts for 72 hours. In fact consumer test panels confirm a 50%-plus reduction in flakiness and itchiness caused by dry skin. In June DSM published a new movie, 'PENTAVITIN: Feel deep hydration for 72 hours’, which explains how this skin bioactive improves skin moisturization and significantly contributes to skin and scalp hydration.

In April DSM used the annual in-cosmetics show to demonstrate how the company is responding to changes in attitudes that are redefining the very concept of beauty - with solutions that are as versatile and adaptable as the people who use them.
