What is Niacinamide?
Niacinamide is an all star skincare ingredient that has all the researchers unanimously agree over its outstanding skincare benefits. Suitable for all skin types, niacinamide has gained popularity over the recent years owing to its capability to deal with almost every skin care concern and skin type.
Skincare Benefits of Niacinamide
It is a water soluble vitamin of B3 complex that helps in visibly minimising open pores, reducing pigmentation, making skin even toned, improving skin's texture, reducing fine lines, skin brightening and providing hydration to skin. Overall, it makes skin look flawless, dewy and envy worthy!
Niacinamide also helps in repairing the damage caused to skin by environmental stressors like pollution, free radicals, sun exposure etc by improving its ability to deal with damage at its first line of defence. Hence, it helps in unraveling a more radiant, glowing and plump skin.
It also helps in renewing and restoring skin moisture and hydration by helping skin improve its natural production of skin strengthening ceramides which are responsible for keeping skin hydrated and moisturised. If the ceramides get depleted, skin becomes patchy, flaky and over-sensitive.
As you must have fathomed by now that niacinamide is one of our favourite skin care ingredients to formulate our products with. It is pleasantly compatible with all of the active skincare ingredients like retinol, AHA, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin-C, BHA and peptides.
