Ever read the back of your organic skincare bottle and think, “I know this ingredient is clean… but what does this word mean?" *Niacinamide*might have been one of those words, so let’s start with a re-introduction:
Meet Niacinamide! One of the two major, water-soluble forms of Vitamin B3. This essential nutrient can be taken orally as a supplement 💊, but is often integrated into topical skincare recipes because of its ability to lock in moisture over time 🔐💧 (not just temporarily). This one action of strengthening the skin’s barrierleads to a plethora of facial benefits.
Let's get to know your face's new friend even better 👇
Benefits of Niacinamide
Pores: Balances oil production and visibly minimizes and tightens enlarged pores, which improves the appearance of uneven skin tone.
Inflammation:Reduces water loss to strengthen the protective barrier of skin which improves texture and reduces all kinds of inflammation (dry, irritated, flaky skin, acne).
Wrinkles & Discoloration:Increases cell turnover, strengthens skin’s barrier, brightens, firms and reduces negative effects of sun. Fights off internal and external stressors that lead to the deterioration of skin resulting in discoloration and wrinkles.
How do I use it? And who is it good for?
Safe to use every day. Apply morning ☀️or night 🌙 (product dependent).
Good for all skin types. Especially those with rosacea, eczema or concerned about product allergies or irritation due to super sensitive skin ☺️.
Three of our fave Niacinamide-rich products ⇢
GRAYDON ALOE MILK CLEANSER ❝ When formulating products, we look for ingredients that target multiple concerns (and skin types) at once, so you get the most bang for your buck. Niacinamide is one of those ingredients and it can be found in Aloe Milk. ❞ — Graydon Skincare
A cleanser, but somuchmore. Minimizes pores, reduces look of fine lines and wrinkles, soothes, moisturizes, nourishes and brightens complexion.
MAYA CHIA THE SUPER LIFT VITAMIN C-MORE TREATMENT ❝ Many Vitamin C formulations race to include high percentages of Vitamin C, often at the expense of irritation. By adding Niacinamide, a power antioxidant that enhances brightening agents, we're able to use less Vitamin C but retain efficacy. ❞ —Susanne Norwitz, Creator
This treatment diminishes fine lines and wrinkles (immediately & long-term) creating radiant, even-toned surface.
LINNÉ RENEW FACE SERUM Studies show that an effective skin care product should have at least a 2%Niacinamide concentration to see results. Jenna Levine, maker of local Charleston skincare line LINNÉ, added four percent to Renew Face Serum.
This serum builds collagen, boosts repair and regeneration, decongests pores, evens skin tone and discoloration, strengthens capillaries, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
