INCI name- Niacinamide

Why you need it -

  • Popularly used for its pore minimising benefits, it is found in makeup primers, skincare serums, and pharmaceutical grade gels, lotions, and shampoos.

  • It calms redness and soothes the skin to provide instant relief from inflammation.
  • When added to overnight treatment products, it works effectively at lightening skin and strengthening the epidermal layer.
  • It helps intercept bacterial growth and is therefore added to shampoos to improve the overall health of the hair.
  • Its gentleness merits its use in teenagers' skin and hair care regimes.
