About Bepanthen globally
The Bepanthen range
At Bepanthen we’re committed to developing formulas that are both effective and gentle. That’s why we work closely with dermatologists, whose years of expertise ensure that our products offer what your skin needs. Nothing more, nothing less.
The Bepanthen range has got your needs, and the needs of your family, covered. We’ve developed formulas in the baby care, stretch marks, wound-healing, scar treatments, eczema, sun protection and more.
*Note Bepanthen stretch marks, eczema and sun protection range are currently non-marketed in New Zealand.
Bepanthen was created and launched in 1944 and has been led by Bayer since 2005.
We began with just three formulas, including our core product, Bepanthen Healing Ointment. Today, we’ve developed a wide range of pioneering skincare. Most of our products are available over the counter at your local pharmacy.
Our key ingredient: pro-vitamin B5
Over the years, our scientists have harnessed the power of dexpanthenol, otherwise known as pro-vitamin B5, which we use in all of our products. This substance, nicknamed the ‘skin vitamin’, helps to keep the skin healthy, and is involved in many of the body’s metabolic processes.
