Niacinamide - What it's All About!
Niacinamide is an ingredient you will find in most Osmosis Skincare products due to the multitude of benefits it has for the skin. The difference in niacinamide from other common skincare ingredients is that it is a cell communicating ingredient. This means it alters the way cells perform so we are creating permanent change in the skin instead of a temporary result.
Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3, offers multiple benefits for aging skin. It can improve the skin's elasticity, dramatically enhance the barrier function, help with discoloration, and help to revive skin's healthy tone and texture.
Topically applied, it can increase ceramides and free fatty acid levels in the skin to help prevent losing water content and stimulate microcirculation in the dermis which can cause a temporary flushing of the skin. Niacinamide is also known to treat uneven skin tone and acne and the red marks it leaves behind.
The terms niacin, nicinamide, and Vitamin B3 are often used interchangeable to refer to any member of this family of organic compounds, having the same biochemical activity. Niacinamide can be found in many foods including meat, fish, eggs, green vegetables, and cereal grains. When we consume these foods, we enable our bodies to produce niacinamide on its own. It is essential to the body as it increases nutrient delivery to the skin through enhancing circulation. Proven to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, niacinamide assists in the fight against free-radical damage as well as calming inflamed skin.
