What Is Niacinamide?

Also known as Vitamin B3, this lab-born ingredient is a major multi-tasker. For context: it works to support skin’s barrier while it also helps to brighten dull-looking skin.

How Does Niacinamide Work In Skin?

Let the multi-tasking begin. Niacinamide not only locks in moisture to support skin’s barrier, it also works to bring dull-looking skin back to life (read: brightens and revives). Combined with our plant science and high-performing formulas, you get a multi-tasking essential for noticeably healthier-looking skin.
