Ingredient Spotlight: Niacinamide

What makes Niacinamide so good for your skin?

Niacinamide, a skincare powerhouse, excels in promoting healthy skin, notably through its exceptional moisturising capabilities. As vitamin B3, it strengthens the skin's lipid barrier, retaining moisture and preventing water loss, resulting in smoother and supple skin. Its sebum-regulating properties also maintain a balanced complexion, preventing excess oiliness and breakouts.

 

What are Benefits of Niacinamide?

1. Enhances skin hydration and prevents water loss.
2. Regulates sebum production for a balanced complexion.
3. Reinforces the skin's protective barrier.
4. Anti-inflammatory properties calm irritation.
5. Guards against oxidative damage.

 

    How to get the most from Niacinamide?

    It is essential to prioritise consistency in application, using it both morning and night for best results. Pairing niacinamide with complementary ingredients like hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and ceramides can further amplify its benefits.

     

    What to look for in Niacinamide products?

    1. Concentration: Opt for products with a niacinamide concentration of at least 5% or higher. This ensures you're getting a potent dose of the ingredient to see noticeable results.
    2. Ingredients: Look for products with a minimal and well-rounded ingredient list. Avoid products with potential irritants like fragrances, dyes, and excessive additives.
    3. Formulation: Choose products with stable formulations. Niacinamide can degrade when exposed to certain conditions, so products in opaque or airtight packaging can help maintain its efficacy.
    4. pH Level: Niacinamide works best at a slightly acidic pH level, around 5-6. Look for products formulated within this range to ensure optimal effectiveness.
