Skin care manufacturers are now discovering that Niacinamide treats acne, hyperpigmentation and redness.
This derivative of Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, has been found to “improve skin tone and texture, reduce many signs of skin aging, and diminish acne”, according to researchers.
It also strengthens the stratum corneum, or outermost layer of skin, and increases the rate of skin surface renewal to help reverse the appearance of past damage such as discoloration or the look of enlarged pores.
Benefits are also said to include restoring and increasing skin's elasticity and hydration from aging and sun damage.
A study organized by Proctor & Gamble found that not only is niacinamide well-tolerated by all skin types, but also reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation, redness, yellowing, and blotchy spots on the face.
A group of 50 women between the ages of 40 and 60 participated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study with randomized testing over a 12-week period.
