We have from the family of B vitamins, niacinamide! 

This form of vitamin B3 has proven its value, both in preserving our health and in caring for our face. It evens out the complexion and fights spots, redness and yellowing of the skin. 

Origin of niacinamide

Niacinamide is one of the forms that vitamin B3 can take. This is why it is often improperly named vitamin B3 or vitamin PP (for pellagra preventive because a deficiency in this vitamin is responsible for preventing a disease: pellagra). Vitamin B3 is essential to the proper functioning of our body because it plays a major role in the energy metabolism of our cells. 

It can be present in three forms in the body: 

  • niacinamide or nicotinamide; 
  • niacin or nicotinic acid; 
  • nicotinamide riboside.

How does niacinamide reduce facial spots, yellowing, and redness?

The beneficial effects of niacinamide on the skin have been extensively studied and are now well known, especially in Asia. Niacinamide participates in the formation of two coenzymes (NAD and NADP) that are essential because they are involved in many metabolic reactions. When applied to the skin, niacinamide has multiple virtues. Thus, it is used in cosmetics in care products for mature skin, against blemishes or in radiance cream. It is also effective against yellow complexion and redness on the skin. Unlike its counterpart niacin which can cause redness, niacinamide is very well tolerated by the skin and its topical application has been widely studied.

How to properly use niacinamide on the face

Niacinamide is used as a cosmetic ingredient. So you can find it in all sorts of beauty products: lotions, serums, moisturizers or radiance boosting care... This is new: Etat Pur has developed a Pure Active formulation based on niacinamide to complete its selection of active ingredients for radiance loss and spots. Formulated with 5% pure niacinamide, it reduces facial spots, redness and yellowing of the skin.

It is used in four drops all over the face, morning and evening, before the cream. Just what is necessary for the skin, without over-treating it. Nothing more, nothing less.
