    What is Niacinamide?

    Niacinamide is an amide of Vitamin B3 - amides are derivatives of carboxylic acids. It is a hydrophilic substance that contains antipruritic, antimicrobial, photo-protective and lightening effects depending on its concentration. 

    It is commonly used in the cosmetics industry for its amazing topical benefits.

    How Does Niacinamide Work? 

    Typically, Niacinamide is made from Niacin within the body. When this Niacin is taken in amounts greater than what is needed by the body, it is converted to Niacinamide. 

    Niacinamide is essential for the proper function of sugars and fats in the body and to maintain healthy cells.

    It can help build proteins in the skin and lock in moisture to prevent environmental damage, resulting in stronger, healthier skin!
