From treating dry skin to wrinkles to pigmentation and acne breakouts, niacinamide offers a variety of skin benefits.
Who it's for:
What it is:
Babyface’s Niacinamide Serum is a creamy formula, full of anti-aging ingredients and moisturizers. A fantastic daily serum for those with wrinkles, fine lines and loss of firmness. Good for all skin types, this moisturizing serum will leave skin soft and supple.
More information on Niacinamide and how it benefits the skin:
Niacinamide has been shown to stimulate cells in the dermis to produce more collagen, a protein that supports skin and gives it its youthful firmness. That’s good news for aging skin, since collagen levels decline with age, and loss of collagen is a major cause of wrinkles and saggy skin.
It’s also helpful for treating another problem that’s common with mature skin – excessive dryness. According to one study, niacinamide was more effective for preventing moisture loss and dryness than petrolatum, a moisturizing ingredient that creates a tight, occlusive barrier against loss of water. Although effective, petrolatum is a by-product of petroleum, and many people want to avoid petroleum products. It also has a heavy, greasy feel, while niacinamide doesn’t.
Niacinamide also improves dry skin by increasing the production of ceramides, lipids in the outer layer of the epidermis that shield skin against moisture loss and protect it from bacteria and the environment. Ceramides, along with other lipids like cholesterol and fatty acids, form a protective barrier against water loss. By replacing ceramides lost through aging and the use of harsh cleansing products you are helping to keep your skin moist and supple.
Another skin problem that goes along with aging is increased skin pigmentation. It’s common for people with more mature skin to complain of age spots and patchy areas of increased pigmentation from years of sun exposure. Niacinamide in concentrations of 4% or higher helps to lighten areas of pigmentation and age spots. It also reduces blotchiness and evens out skin tone while improving skin texture.
From treating dry skin to wrinkles, pigmentation and acne breakouts, niacinamide offers a variety of skin benefits.
Usage: Apply a few drops to fingertips, then gently rub hands together to warm serum and apply by patting onto the skin. This is a moisturizing serum, but should be completely absorbed within 5 minutes. Your skin should feel soft, but not oily. If it feels like you have a mask on, you have used too much serum. Remember that our serums are concentrated. Follow the serum with a lotion or cream of your choice.
Can also be used on the scalp as a hair loss remedy. For hair, apply a few drops to fingertips and massage gently onto scalp at bedtime.

WOW! Purchased this to use with Massive Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum and my Dry Mature Skin feels and looks BABY SMOOTH AND SOFT. Makes my other serums and treatments - Mega Lift in the morning and Night Renewal Cream at night - glide on easily. I discovered from recent Babyface articles about this product Niacinamide Serum and Emu Oil to help my Dry, Sensitive, Mature Skin enjoy the many benefits of Mega Lift and Night Renewal Cream. My skin is more firm, supple, and radiant day by day. Stick with the Babyface products to reveal your BEST skin and hair. And Free your aging skin from concealers, primer, foundation, and blush!
This is an amazing serum -- wonderfully moisturizing. It makes my aging skin (I'm 79) feel soft and smooth, and definitely helps keep lines and wrinkles at bay. My only problem is the "dropper" that comes with the bottle. It appears intended to draw up and expel the serum, but it doesn't work. It has serum in it, but nothing will get it out. It's annoying to pay for at least three or four potential applications of serum that are inaccessible. I'm rating this on the quality ot the product, not the packaging, but I do wish you would put it in a more consumer-friendly container. Otherwise, I love it!
Hi Sandi, I'm sorry to hear about the dropper. Maybe it was a defective piece? I will have our customer service reach out to you.
I really wanted this serum to fade age spots on my upper chest, near the collar bone area. It does seem to brighten the area but I don't think I have used it long enough to tell if it is doing the job as advertised. My biggest complaint is with the packaging. The bottle has an eye dropper to draw up a lotion thickness serum. It did not draw up the product and I ended up using a clean Q-tip to get out the product. Rather clumsy but I did want to get my money's worth. Perhaps this is a product that should go in an airless pump bottle like the retinol, that should deliver the goods.
Thank you for your feedback, Joan. In colder weather it might thicken up. A pump is a great suggestion and I will pass that on.
