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.

PENTAVITIN® mimics skin’s natural ability to lock in moisture, is produced sustainably using sophisticated sugar technology and 100% natural.

Now, new studies show that when this hero ingredient is used in a hand sanitizer (with up to 70% alcohol) it immediately reduces unwanted effects of skin dryness in hand sanitizers by:

  • increasing hydration by up to 9% just one hour after use
  • delivering a 14% hydration boost after 3 hours

So good hygiene and moisturizing care really can go hand-in-hand.
