Niacinamide

Niacinamide is a versatile ingredient that can address a variety of skin concerns. It is an advanced anti-ageing ingredient that helps reduce inflammation, blemishes & discolouration and increases skin barrier functioning and fatty acids of the skin.  It is a water-soluble vitamin which is also known as nicotinic amide, the amide compound of vitamin B3. 

What is it used for?

  • It can treat certain skin conditions with minimal side effects.
  • It is a good anti-ageing ingredient that helps to repair sun-damaged skin.
  • It is capable of increasing levels of fatty acids in the skin and giving stability to the skin barrier helping to reduce transepidermal water loss.
  • It has anti-inflammatory properties which makes it particularly effective for conditions such as acne and hyperpigmentation.
  • It speeds up cellular turnover improving skin tone and elasticity for a resurfacing effect.
  • At the correct percentage, niacinamide has been shown to help deep pigmentation.
  • Naturally occurring, it can be found in foods such as meats, grains, beans, nuts, tuna, brown rice and many other foodstuffs.
  • Niacinamide can also be taken in the form of oral supplements to treat acne.
