PABA, or Para-AminoBenzoic Acid, is a naturally occurring non-protein amino acid that was previously regarded as a B vitamin. It is now fairly well known as an important ingredient of topical sunscreens, but there is also anecdotal evidence suggesting it can not only support skin health when taken internally, but also reduce the greying of hair (retain natural hair pigmentation). It supports collagen formation, which can also help improve the health of those other tissues such as connective tissue and bone that rely on collagen for their shape. PABA is an antioxidant, and it has also been combined here with the better-known antioxidant, Vitamin C, in order to support skin health and fight cold sores.
There has also been research into whether Para-AminoBenzoic Acid can help with melasma (hyper-pigmentation of the skin), Peyronie's disease (penile curvature), and asthma.
