We like to shine the spotlight on unsung heroes, which is why we love Niacinamide. Its an over achiever but doesn’t always get the recognition that it fully deserves.
Niacinamide (also known as nicotinamide) is a form of Vitamin B3, an essential nutrient required for the functionality of our body. It has properties that boost your metabolism along with a number of cellular processes. It can be taken orally via tablets and is used within a number of skincare products due to its compatibility with a wide number of other ingredients. Niacinamide’s uses are varying and also work with the natural substances within your skin to leave it looking and feeling healthy.
Why is Niacinamide good for the skin?
Niacinamide benefits the skin in a number of ways. The better question is probably; “what doesn’t Nicacinamide do for the skin?”, it is a serious powerhouse when it comes to skin health.
Niacinamide improves the hydration of the skin by locking in moisture and building proteins such as collagen, which keeps the skin vibrant and firm. Niacinamide also improves the overall complexion of the skin, reducing uneven skin tone, dullness and fine lines and wrinkles which can leave the skin glowing.
The ingredient also improves the skin’s protective barrier, reducing the impact of environmental damage and visibly improves enlarged pores, as well as boosting protection from UV rays which can cause long lasting damage to the skin.
By creating quality skin products that visibly improve your skin through the use of ingredients such as Niacinamide, Ellus & Krue hope to provide customers with the confidence you deserve.
