Commonly Known As
Vitamin B3 and Nicotinic Acid, nicotinamide
What It Does
Niacinamide is a water soluble form of vitamin B3. It restores skin and improves skin texture, brightens and evens skin tone, as well as strengthening the skin’s surface.
Why It Works
Niacinamide works by increasing the production of ceramides in your skin that work to decrease fine lines and strengthen the skin barrier. It also decreases hyperpigmentation by inhibiting melanosome transfer, meaning it prevents the skin from forming dark spots.
