Collection: Niacinamide

What is niacinamide?
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3. Its ability to be easily absorbed makes it a popular skincare ingredient. It cannot be dissolved in oil so it's most often found in water-based skincare products. If you're a fan of lightweight textures, niacinamide is the ingredient for you.

What does it do?
Think of the skin barrier as a wall. The wall is made up of little bricks called ceramides (lipids). Niacinamides hold the ceramides together, thus strengthening the wall and preventing water loss in the process. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to reduce sebum production, this ingredient can be found in many acne products (including those in our Pyunkgang Yul collection).

Why should I incorporate niacinamides into my winter routine?
This is the time of year that sees us spending more time indoors basking in central heating or near radiators. That wonderful warmth we crave unfortunately pulls a lot of moisture from our skin. Niacinamide does a beautiful job of protecting the skin from this moisture loss. 

How does it react with other ingredients?
Niacinamide is safe to use with most ingredients and can be found in many combination serums. However, using a niacinamide with acidic ingredients like AHA/BHA or Vitamin C isn't a great idea. When used in combination with Vitamin C, the benefits of both ingredients are reduced. If used in combination too often with these acidic ingredients, you could experience facial flushing.

The products in this collection all contain niacinamide. Consider adding one to your winter skincare routine. :)
