Niacinamide – Vitamin B3

Niacinamide - (Vit B3) is a multi-functional, anti-inflammatory ingredient that helps solve many skin problems. Our body does not produce vitamin B3 and must be ingested or applied topically in skin care.

Why use Niacinamide - Vitamin B3

Niacinamide – Vitamin B3 increases skin immunity, clarity and helps balance and normalise skin function.


Niacinamide is a multi-functional, anti-inflammatory ingredient that helps solve many skin problems and helps improve all kinds of skin concerns from acne prone symptoms to signs of ageing. It helps restore balance and revive skin, by helping repair and strengthen the skin’s natural protective barrier. Niacinamide contains co-enzymes that are central to repairing cell damage, cell reproduction, and normal skin cell function.

Barrier protection

There’s also evidence that topical niacinamide can increase the production of ceramides (lipids that help maintain the skin’s protective barrier) thus helping delay the effects on wrinkles, fine lines, and the skin’s moisture barrier. The main function of the skin’s protective barrier (acid mantle) is to prevent potential toxins and microbes from invading the skin and preserving the skin’s moisture levels.

Skin health

This hero ingredient calms irritated skin reducing acne, balances oily skin, soothes sensitive skin and fights off the stressors that lead to breakout and premature ageing. Vitamin B3 improves skin health and is the key to glowing skin. Niacinamide increases skin clarity, even skin tone and reduces skin redness.

Anyone wanting normal healthy and resilient skin should use Niacinamide – (Vit B3).

How often can you use Niacinamide?

You can use it morning and evening. Apply after cleansing to a clean skin.

Niacinamide – Vitamin B3 works well with:

When using Niacinamide, it is good to combine it with Retinal (vit A) for skin rejuvenation and restoration for ageing skin and for anti-inflammatory and repair for acne prone skin. The combination of these two ingredients compliment, each other perfectly, and help restore, calm and rejuvenate skin. Skin texture, colour and tone come into harmony with the unity of Vit B3 and Vit A. Pores are refined, oilness is regulated, redness is reduced and skin is refreshed and revitalised.

Note: Niacinamide is a powerful and valuable ingredient in skincare, but when used in high concentrations it may cause skin to flush. We recommend using low concentration of 3-5% in formulations. If redness or flushing occurs, it generally disappears within 20 – 60 minutes, we therefore recommend using those products in the evening, if your has a tendency to flush.
