You know the credibility of an ingredient when it’s plastered all over bottles and jars followed by an influx of customer reviews (we’re talking happy customers), and expert-appreciated benefits. Introducing the industry’s most talked about ingredient. Niacinamide. Pronounced as nai-ya-sina-mide (you’ll get used to it), also known as nicotinamide is a popular ingredient that is a form of vitamin B3 designed to work with the natural chemistry of your skin for optimum health. It helps build proteins, protect your lipid layer (which is your moisture barrier) from environmental damage and reduces redness—great for those that experience acne and eczema.
