Over the past few years, Niacinamide is earning so much praise in the skincare community.
But do you know Niacinamide’s skin benefits?
Niacinamide is considered a holy-grail solution for many of the most common skin issues.
If you’ve ever struggled with dry skin, redness or fine lines appearing more defined, you know it’s hard to find the right products that can truly help you with this.
I have experienced it myself, which is why we do years-long research before incorporating a certain ingredient in our skincare line.
What is Niacinamide?
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B-3 and an essential vitamin to keep your skin healthy, strong and youthful.
- Niacinamide evens skin tone and reduces hyperpigmentation
Research has shown that niacinamide can help fade hyperpigmentation.
As we age, our skin becomes more prone to hyperpigmentation showing as darker spots.
Those often appear on the face and can be very noticeable.
Dealing with hyperpigmentation can be frustrating because the skin loses the even, dewy look most of us love…
And while it’s normal to look your age, there is also nothing wrong with being able to turn back the clock a little.
Whether you’re combating acne scars or sun damage, Niacinamide can help with that.
Using products that contain Niacinamide or Niacinamide concentration alone can lighten the skin tone and reduce dark spots and blemishes.
This ingredient helps reduce the transfer of the brown pigment known as melanin from the pigment-producing cells, therefore improving the look of the skin.
- Niacinamide strenghtens the skin barrier
Your skin is made up of lipids, ceramides and fatty acids – together they are responsible for keeping moisture in and foreign invaders out.
Even if these don’t sound very familiar – just remember that ceramides are a really
important component, responsible for holding skin cells together to create a protective barrier.
The stronger the barrier, the easier it is for your skin to retain water and hydration within its layers.
Niaciamide comes to the rescue – it benefits the skin barrier by encouraging ceramide production.
Because it promotes the production of ceramides and elastin, both vital components of the skin barrier,
Niacinamide helps strengthen the complexion’s natural protective shield.
- Anti-ageing properties
Fine lines, wrinkles or sagging skin – while it's not possible to erase them completely, everyone wants to find a way to improve their look.
It was found that Niacinamide enables a specific compound to increase to a level of young cells in ageing cells.
It was also found that Niacinamide boosts the production of collagen which in turn decreases ageing and wrinkles.
Collagen determines the appearance of your skin by maintaining the skin structure.
It ensures that the skin retains water, and has a smooth, firm and healthy look.
Niacinamide’s anti-ageing properties likely have to do with reduction of transepidermal water loss and
improvement in the moisture content of your skin after sun damage.
All these amazing properties of Niacinamide inspired us to include it in the Hydraterende reiniger, together with two other wonder ingredients – Aloe Vera & Green Tea.
