Niacinamide is vitamin B3 (or vitamin PP), also called niacin. This ingredient has recently become very popular – and we’re not surprised! Niacinamide has a broad spectrum of activity – it can benefit many skin types, helping to reduce the appearance of various skin problems. What exactly does niacinamide help with?
Acne, oily skin
Vitamin B3 is proven to reduce excessive sebum production by the skin, which is often one of the main causes of acne. Additionally, it shows anti-inflammatory properties, which results in the reduction of painful inflammation of purulent lesions. It also tightens and cleanses enlarged pores.
Erythema, dilated capillaries
The anti-inflammatory action of niacinamide effectively helps reduce skin redness and also reduces the appearance of dilated capillaries. It has been successfully used for rosacea.
Due to the ability to inhibit migration of melanin to keratinocytes vitamin B3 shows activity in lightening hyperpigmentation and limiting its formation. This applies both to post-sun discolouration, acne discolouration and age spots.
Niacinamide strengthens the skin’s hydrolipidic barrier and effectively reduces transepidermal water loss (TEWL), which means the skin stops dehydrating, irritation and erythema disappear.
Mature skin, anti-oxidation
Vitamin B3 increases the production of fibroblasts, which in turn increases the collagen and elastin proteins responsible for skin firmness. It is also a powerful antioxidant that neutralises free radicals that damage the skin’s structural proteins.
As you can see niacinamide is a versatile ingredient. Its multi-directional action can help fight many skin imperfections and problems. In which natural skin care products can we find vitamin B3?
