Niacinamide

Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, is a skin restoring hero that’s great for all skin types. It works with your skin’s natural defences to improve the appearance of redness, blotchiness, uneven tone, oiliness, dehydrated skin, and more.

Niacinamide amplifies skin’s ability to protect itself against external aggressors. It helps renew and restore the surface of skin against moisture loss and dehydration by helping improve its natural production of skin-strengthening ceramides.This boosted barrier performance can also improve the appearance of enlarged pores, regulate oil production, and nourish dry skin.

Niacinamide supports collagen production to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, lightens visible hyperpigmentation by slowing down the transfer of melanin to the epidermis, and plays nicely with other active ingredients. Used regulaly, niacinamide can help skin appear smoother, more radiant, and even-toned.
