5 Reasons Why Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) is the BOMB!
dr.NC's favourite skincare ingredient, vitamin B3 (aka Niacinamide) is the one miracle ingredient to address all your skin concerns!
Did you know dr.NC is the only skincare range in the whole world that’s boosted by vitamin B3 (niacinamide) ACROSS the range.
Here at dr.NC we take a “layer upon layer” approach when it comes to vitamin B3 (niacinamide). Infusing the active into most of the steps, therefore exponentially elevating the benefits of B3.
So why is it that “more is more” when it comes to Niacinamide?
What’s the science behind vitamin B3?
5 reasons why we’re obsessed with vitamin B3:
#1: PROTECTS AND REPAIRS AGAINST SUN DAMAGE
Niacinamide protects your skin’s natural immune system. When the sun hits the skin, your skin’s immune cells run away into your bloodstream, leaving you susceptible to skin cancer sun damage and accelerated skin ageing.
Backed by published science, vitamin B3 in 5% concentrations or more STOPS this and boosts your skin’s natural immune system. Simultaneously it also repairs UV-induced DNA damage and oxidative environmental damage.
#2: PREVENTS PIGMENTATION / SUN SPOTS & CREATES EVEN SKIN TONE
Vitamin B3 is a well published epidermal skin lightening and brightening agent. Largely by blocking the pigment production and pigment transferring enzyme in the skin.
Say goodbye to sun spots and hello luminous skin! Made even more effective by layering up in several steps of your skin care routine.
That’s why vitamin B3 is in both the Concentrated Moisturiser+ and Concentrated CC+ SPF30 Cream in 5% concentrations. Layer upon layer, sustaining an even skin tone and prevention of oxidative damage during the day.
The evening routine is designed to supercharge the collagen preserving and pigment prevention benefits dosing 10% vitamin B3 with 10% vitamin C and E in the Concentrated Illuminator. Followed by another layer of 5% Vitamin B3 in the Concentrated Hydration+.
More is more when it comes to niacinamide B3.
This ingredient plumps the skin and helps minimise wrinkles and sallowness, by preserving our collagen and fibroblasts, the collagen production cell.
It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that combat UV and environmental damage, preventing photo ageing.
Finally the pigment inhibiting properties fade sun spots and reduces the visible signs of ageing due to UV and environmental pollutants.
#4: ACNE CONTROL
B3 every day keeps the breakouts at bay!
Beyond just a sebum regulator, B3 is a powerful and stable topical anti-inflammatory that calms down breakouts, restores the barrier layer and speeds up healing.
Additionally it controls the skin’s natural sebum production, leading to reduced oiliness, while minimising pores.
#5: DECREASES SENSITIVITY AND DEHYDRATION
If sensitivity, rosacea and dehydration are your skin concerns, then consider B3 your new best friend!
Vitamin B3 is the best and most stable antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredient you can find to put on your skin. Decreasing sensitivity, strengthening the skin’s barrier layer and reducing bumps, lumps and breakouts.
No more dehydration or dry skin when you layer up with niacinamide. Vitamin B3 directly stimulates production of ceramides, the number one skin natural moisturising factor making it perfect for eczema prone skin.
