Vitamin B3 5%

( Botanical Garden, LLC New York )

Water Loss at 2%, Acne at 4%, and Whitening at 5%

Commonly known as Vitamin B3, Niacinamide at 2% helps reduce water loss in the skin and retain fatty acid levels (younger, plumper, firmer skin). It is also at  high concentrations (between 3-4%) a very effective acne reducer. Clinical research has shown niacinamide (Vit B3) to be just as effective as the topical antibiotic Clindamycin at treating acne. Obviously Niacinamide doesn't run the risk of resistance, since it is not an antibiotic.

Niacinamide is also an excellent skin lightening agent that works by disrupting the transfer of melanosome from the melanocyte to the keratinocyte.  A Procter & Gamble study shows that the combination of niacinamide and glucosamine (N-Acetyl Glucosamine) demonstrated significant skin lightening in patients. This revelation was presented at the 2006 American Academy of Dermatology.  In general, most individuals saw results after 12 weeks of daily usage (and saw a reduction of 35-68% of pigmentation). Like with most other skin lightening compounds, niacinamide has an inhibitory effect and in order to get the most out of it, you must be wearing sunscreen everyday and exfoliate often to ensure a complete melanin inhibiting process.
