Niacinamide has become one of the most popular ingredients in skin care products in recent years.
What is niacinamide?
Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3 or nicotinamide, is a water-soluble B vitamin that can have many benefits for your skin. It is a mild and suitable ingredient for many skin types and is therefore often found in various cosmetic products such as creams, serums and masks. This ingredient can be used every day and is especially useful in the care of oily, combination or problematic facial skin.
How does niacinamide benefit your skin?
Strengthening of the barrier (protective) function. Niacinamide helps to strengthen the skin's barrier function, thus ensuring greater skin resistance to negative factors of the external environment and helping the skin to retain moisture.
Reducing the redn. This ingredient can reduce skin redness that occurs due to skin problems such as rosacea or other inflammatory skin conditions.
Regulation of sebum (fat) secretion. Niacinamide can help regulate the activity of the skin's sebaceous glands and the production of oil (sebum). This property makes it a popular ingredient in products for oily and combination skin.
Reduction of pigmentation. This vitamin can also help reduce hyperpigmentation by reducing the transport of melanosomes from melanocytes to keratinocytes.
Reducing the amount and depth of wrinkles. Research has shown that niacinamide can help reduce fine lines. This ingredient protects the proteins in the skin from glycation and has an antioxidant effect.
Protection from the harmful effects of the sun. Niacinamide can help protect the skin from harmful UV rays due to its antioxidant effects.
For these reasons , niacinamide has become one of the most valued ingredients in many skin care products. The skincare experts at Moon/Cosmetics have created a serum enriched with up to 10% niacinamide that is the perfect choice for oily, combination and/or problem skin!
