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 a 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.
