The brands that we sell here at Pure Beauty all have one thing in common – attention to detail. From the packaging to the ingredients, all of our brands focus on every little detail of their products to give you the best skincare available. We care just as deeply about these details, and love to learn about the newest ingredients in these pioneering products.
One such ingredient is niacinamide. Also known as vitamin B3 and nicotinamide, niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that works with the natural substances in your skin to help visibly improve enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and a weakened surface.
Niacinamide helps build cells in the skin while also protecting them from environmental stresses, such as sunlight, pollution, and toxins and may be helpful for severe acne, especially inflammatory forms like papules and pustules. Over time, you may see fewer lesions and improved skin texture.
So, with this in mind, we’ve curated a list of our favourite niacinamide-containing products for your perusal:
