Niacinamide in Skincare

An active form of vitamin B3, niacinamide is found in numerous foods, including green vegetables such as kale, mushrooms, almonds, cereals, eggs, milk, and fish. The vitamin is not produced in the body but is essential for the bodily function of sugars and fats in healthy cells.
Niacinamide deficiency can cause conditions such as pellagra, a severe condition that can be fatal. Upping intake, supplementing with, or topically applying the substance may help treat various skin ailments, including aging and acne. As a result, the nutrient is often included in skin care products and cosmetics.
The Benefits of Niacinamide
This supportive and strengthening type of vitamin B3 may offer numerous potential skin health benefits, including:

  • Improved hydration and moisture retention
  • Oil regulation
  • Pimple and acne control
  • Sun damage repair and anti-aging therapy
  • Hyperpigmentation reduction
  • Brightening and a more even tone
  • Pore reduction and tightening
  • Eczema treatment and management

Niacinamide may help through its ability to promote keratin building to smooth and firm and to develop a protective lipid, or ceramide, barrier that helps the skin retain moisture. It may also help reduce inflammation, soothe, and protect skin from sun and other environmental pollution and damage.
How Is Niacinamide Applied?
Encouraging consumers to include foods that naturally contain the micronutrient is the ideal way of increasing their intake of this valuable vitamin. Supplementation is helpful for deficiencies. At the same time, delivery is optimized through topical skin care products, often in the form of serums. Other applications include cleansers, toners, moisturizers, sunscreens, and face masks.
Niacinamide in crystal powder form is water-soluble and added to the water phase when creating water-oil emulsions or directly to water-based products. Concentrations typically vary from two to five percent of the product formulation but can go as low as 1% and as high as 20%. Niacinamide works synergistically with other ingredients, such as zinc, folic acid, copper, and hyaluronic acid.
Niacinamide skincare offerings must also include pure, natural, and certified fragrance ingredients, especially as consumers become more discerning and demanding regarding what they consume and put on their skin.
Combining Function and Fragrance
The most common scent sources in toiletries and cosmetics are essential oils, hydrosols, and synthetic oils. These ingredients add appealing aromas and potential therapeutic benefits, such as cleansing, moisturizing, strengthening, and healing. Among the best skin-health essential oils are tea tree, orange, carrot seed, and lavender. They smell heavenly and add smooth texture and density to lotions and creams.
Hydrosols are a byproduct of essential oil production. Made using a distillate of the same raw sources, they share many of oil’s healthful properties. However, they are water-based and suitable for niacinamide-based skincare such as toners, light serums, and aromatherapy.
