Niacinamide has been trending for some time now for being a solve-it-all ingredient, is it though?
Niacinamide, also known as nicotinamide, is a form of vitamin B5 that helps the skin function and repair itself through two chemical reactions that it takes a role in.
Let's find out what niacinamide can actually do
Increase Production of Ceramides
Topical niacinamide application is proven
to increase ceramide production which is a main component in the maintenance of the skin barrier. It naturally affects the skin hydration and moisturization level, wrinkles, fine lines, damaged and sensitive skin, and other skin conditions.
Effective in Cases of Moderate Acne
4% Niacinamide has been proven to effective in cases of moderate acne, especially in oily skin, and equivalent to 1% clindamycin which is an antibiotic used in acne treatment! It also decreases sebum production if used in a concentration of 2% or more.
It's also super effective in cases of mild rosacea and other inflammatory skin conditions.
More Favorable in Treating Acne in Sensitive Skin
Unlike other acne medications, niacinamide is a non-irritating ingredient that won't irritate or sensitize the skin. This makes it a go-to-ingredient in dry and sensitive skin.
It's also effective in treating hyperpigmentation, discoloration, and helps in keeping hydration locked beneath the skin.
