This facial sun care formulation has an airy and smooth texture for intense hydration and leaves a silky touch on the skin.
Every day, indoor and outdoor stress negatively affects the skin’s natural hydration, causing it to dry out much faster. The key needs of skin exposed to urban stress are fast-acting and long-term hydration with targeted care for problem areas. Used daily, the skincare ingredient PENTAVITIN® provides powerful hydration to all facial areas. Regular use of the natural skin bioactive PENTAVITIN® brings tired and dry skin back to life, giving consumers a confidence boost and a smile on their face. Consumer test panels confirm reduction in flakiness and itchiness caused by dry skin and skin becomes visibly smoother.

A strong skin barrier and a well-balanced skin microbiome are both essential for scalp comfort. Our skin microbiome active ingredient PENTAVITIN®, ensures instant, deep hydration to strengthen the scalp surface and promote a harmonious interaction between scalp skin and its microbiome.
When the scalp microbiome is imbalanced, microbial infiltration leads to inflammation in the epidermis at the hair shaft. This causes the skin barrier to weaken, and flaking skin on the scalp may increase. A downward spiral is then set in motion, with microbial infiltration multiplying as the scalp barrier function diminishes.
In-vitro tests have shown that PENTAVITIN® can break this vicious circle by influencing the equilibrium of microbial species such as Malassezia furfur and Staphylococcus epidermidis in the scalp microbiome. In addition, in-vitro gene expression studies by DSM’s scientists have demonstrated that PENTAVITIN® effectively stimulates the epidermal building blocks that play a key role in skin barrier improvement.
At DSM, we believe that single point measurements cannot describe the complexity of facial skin hydration properly. We therefore developed a new tool that enables us to visualize the hydration of facial skin. Hydration levels are measured at 30 different pre-defined points on the face, and a specific algorithm is then used to translate them into detailed facial color maps. This particular mapping technology draws attention to skin areas with special hydration needs and thus helps meet consumer demands for effective hydration.

Unique moisture magnet
Dry skin lacks water in the upper scaly layers, whilst the underlying layers are normally hydrated by the skin’s internal moisturizing mechanism. The secret to resolving dry skin involves not only having enough moisture, but also keeping that moisture where it’s needed. Unlike other ingredients, PENTAVITIN® connects perfectly with the skin’s surface layers and doesn’t easily wash off, locking in moisture like a magnet. It also strengthens the skin’s natural defenses and preventing further dehydration.
We all know that dealing with dry skin can be an uphill battle. Using good facial and body moisturizers is important, of course, but it’s equally important to find a proper cleansing product. The problem is that washing repeatedly can strip moisture from your skin and impair skin barrier function, leaving skin rough and tight, or maybe even reddened, scaly and itchy. In one of our recent surveys, consumers around the world made it clear they want to find a way to overcome these issues. What they are looking for are effective skin cleansers that also provide instant and long-lasting moisturization after use.
To respond to this unmet consumer need, we conducted new studies on rinse-off application powered by PENTAVITIN®. The findings from these studies prove that common skin cleansing formulations containing PENTAVITIN® immediately increase skin hydration for 24 hours, meaning an end to skin dryness post-cleansing or showering. We also found that even with frequent showering, PENTAVITIN® helps reinforce the skin’s barrier while protecting against dryness.
Keeping your hands clean is one of the best ways to help stop the spread of infectious diseases. However, frequent washing and use of sanitizers can also have an impact on the skin barrier, leaving the skin on your hands feeling dry and uncomfortable. In PENTAVITIN®, DSM has just the solution though. New studies proved that when this hero ingredient is used in a hand sanitizer (with up to 70% alcohol) it reduces unwanted effects of skin dryness in hand sanitizers by:
So good hygiene and moisturizing care really can go hand in hand.
Consumers increasingly making the connection between a healthy scalp and healthy hair. Thirty-six percent are using scalp care products at home to combat hair loss, reflecting the hands-on/DIY shift1. However, 44% of consumers indicated that they are not satisfied with current product offerings to address hair loss, indicating a gap (and an opportunity) for brands2. Nearly half are interested in more preventive solutions, indicating a connection to resilient beauty drivers3.
“My ideal solution would be something like a shampoo or a cleanser or some kind of moisturizer that you could put on your scalp, that didn't weigh your hair down, and that cleansed your hair, too. That would be perfect.” – Tabitha, 45
Biodegradable scalp care ingredient PENTAVITIN® protects and moisturizes the scalp and promotes ideal scalp conditions with less sebum and less flaking. Data from the new in vivo study show visible reduction in scalp flaking after one application and a 55% reduction after frequent showering with shampoos containing this bioactive in low doses. Volunteers confirmed its efficacy, with 60% stating that their “scalp feels hydrated and healthy.”

PENTAVITIN’s® efficacy in shampoo also resulted in visible hydration and reduction of sebum after frequent use as shown in a unique scalp mapping technique, helping to promote a healthy-looking scalp.
Recent studies show that the skin on our hands, feet, legs, and scalp needs as much attention as our face to stay hydrated. The skin bioactive ingredient PENTAVITIN® has long been proven to moisturize, restore, and protect skin against dehydration. New studies now demonstrate that it recovers moisture and prevents dryness all over the body.
New discoveries from in-vivo tests shows PENTAVITIN’S® high efficacy in moisturizing soap bar with high pH conditions, delivering a 24-hour moisture boost & lock benefit known in facial care but newly discovered in this format. Additionally, it boosts the efficacy of glycerin even at a low concentration.
