What is Niacinamide and what it can do for your skin

What is niacinamide?

Niacinamide , also known as vitamin B3 or nicotinamide, is an ingredient that until recently was largely unknown, but has already earned its place in cosmetics with all its merit.

Benefits of Niacinamide

It is a cosmetic ingredient with numerous scientifically proven benefits and is well tolerated by all skin types.

  • Increases the skin's ability to retain water, thus helping to maintain skin hydration and integrity. The maintenance of water in the skin is essential to ensure its barrier function.
  • Reduces the appearance of blemishes and pigmentation on the skin.
  • It seems to have the ability to promote the synthesis of collagen (responsible for skin firmness) and ceramides, thus improving skin elasticity and the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines.
  • It has anti-inflammatory and sebum-regulating properties, making it an ingredient that can be effective in preventing acne and improving enlarged pores.
  • It has antioxidant properties.

How to use niacinamide?

Niacinamide is an easy ingredient to include in a skin routine as it does not degrade with exposure to sunlight or cause skin sensitivity. It can be used both morning and evening and in combination with some active ingredients such as retinol, AHA, BHA and hyaluronic acid.
