Nicotinamide can play a whitening role, mainly by inhibiting the generation of melanin and reducing the generation of melanin these two aspects to achieve.
Skin cells need enough energy every day not only for the synthesis of collagen but also for the production of new cells, fats, proteins, DNA synthesis, and other daily physiological functions. Nicotinamide can maintain the energy balance of our skin, restore cell energy, accelerate metabolism, and promote the shedding of melanin keratinocytes.
On the other hand, due to the transfer of melanin to keratinocytes, the skin becomes black. However, niacinamide acts on the already produced melanin and reduces the transfer of melanin to the surface cells, which can effectively inhibit the transfer of melanin to keratinocytes by 35% to 40% and reduce pigmentation. Therefore, We can find that the size and number of spots on the skin are reduced after a period of moderate use of light spot products containing nicotinamide.
The whitening effect of nicotinamide is a well-known function. After many years of research on the production and application of nicotinamide, it has been improved and expanded in the production process and application field. As a cost-effective raw material for skin care and medicine, nicotinamide market demand still maintains a good development trend.
