Niacinamide Skin Prep / Serum or Booster


Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is one of the ultimate multi-tasking antioxidants, an 'all around skin tonic'. It's wide range of benefits include: supporting the skin barrier, improving appearance of pores, improving look of discoloration, texture & tone, dullness, improving appearance of blemishes, balancing oil, nourishing, soothing, and smoother looking skin. 

There are several options on how to position:

  1. Skin Prep - use after cleansing to 'prep' the skin before treatments or skincare routine. As nice prep as Niacinamide plays well with most other actives -- Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, etc.

  2. Serum - 'standalone' serum

  3. Booster - add a couple drops to your favorite serum or moisturizer to enhance with a dose of Niacinamide (cocktail mix together in your hand and then apply)

Humectants Propanediol, Glycerin, and B5 Panthenol promote hydrated smoother supple looking skin - encouraging water retention. N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG) helps supports skin barrier and improve skin hydration.

Niacinamide is known for its benefits for Oily skin - but all skin types can benefit from this blend.
