Nicotinamide, a vitamin often referred to as vitamin B3, has been a popular ingredient in the skin care industry in recent years for its various skincare benefits.
In 1974 it was discovered that nicotinamide has an excellent whitening effect, 2% nicotinamide products can inhibit the production of melanin, thereby playing the role of skin whitening.
Nicotinamide has also been shown to have anti-aging properties by promoting collagen synthesis in the skin and increasing skin moisture retention. Long-term experimental results show that products containing nicotinamide can make skin fine lines disappear or fade, and skin firmness is improved. If you add nicotinamide to anti-wrinkle products, you can enhance the anti-wrinkle effect of products.
Nicotinamide is not only anti-aging but also a savior for oily skin. 2% nicotinamide products can reduce the secretion of fatty acids and triglycerides in the skin and narrow the pores of the skin. 4% nicotinamide gel has the same effect on acne as 1% clindamycin gel.
