How It Works

Popularly known as Niacinamide, vitamin B3, which is not synthesized in the body (we have to eat it to receive its benefits), is a water-soluble vitamin that helps to visibly reduce enlarged pores, improve uneven skin tone, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, brighten, and repair the skin’s acid mantle.

Niacinamide also curbs the impact of environmental damage and pollution because it acts to protect and improve the skin’s barrier. Niacinamide also plays a vital role in repairing damaged skin - damage that could result in accelerated skin ageing and lacklustre skin.

 Benefits

1. Niacinamide helps prevent and clear discolourations and uneven skin tone. 

2. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Niacinamide helps reduce redness and hypersensitivity.

3. Niacinamide works to strengthen the skin barrier and improve the synthesis of healthy fats (important for glowing skin) 

4. Niacinamide helps reduce/prevent moisture loss and dehydration. Over time, ceramides deplete, leaving the skin vulnerable - Niacinamide helps prevent this.

5. Niacinamide is excellent for those with dry skin, it helps boost hydration by protecting the skin and enhancing the ability of hydrators like glycerin

Side Effects

Niacinamide is considered a safe and effective ingredient for skin brightening, protection and moisturization - when at <5% in a formulation. At higher concentrations, it is likely to cause skin irritation.
