Niacinamide is an ingredient that you've probably heard about when it comes to skincare. This key ingredient is in almost everything from moisturizers, to cleansers, to serums — it's one of the hero ingredients in both Jet Lag Mask and our newest launch, Soft Reset AHA Exfoliating Solution, and is even in CC Me Serum. We've already done a deep dive on what exactly Niacinamide is, so now you're probably curious about its function and why we love the ingredient so much.
What does Niacinamide do?
Its main purpose is to reduce inflammation. Niacinamide, which is one of the two major forms of Vitamin B3, helps your skin cells repair damage, multiply and function as normal. It also helps neutralize free radicals.
Niacinamide can treat redness and irritation caused by sun exposure, acne or skin conditions like eczema, rosacea and psoriasis. It also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other premature signs of aging. This ingredient supports your skin barrier to protect it against environmental stressors and help balance oil production.
Niacinamide in Jet Lag Mask
We formulated Jet Lag Mask with Niacinamide to help reduce the appearance of textured skin, whether you're experiencing enlarged pores or fine lines and wrinkles. It works together with Chestnut Extract, which helps encourage skin cell turnover, and Vitamin C, which acts as a moisture magnet and also helps brighten your complexion.
Niacinamide in Soft Reset AHA Exfoliating Solution
Soft Reset AHA Exfoliating Solution is a formula of 16% AHAs (or alpha hydroxy acids) that helps smooth and refine your skin's texture and brighten any dark spots or hyperpigmentation. It contains Glycolic Acid, one of the most powerful AHAs that helps diminish the appearance of enlarged pores and fine lines, and Lactic Acid, which is a gentle, plant-derived AHA that slows and reduces signs of aging.
Soft Reset was formulated with Niacinamide to combat any inflammation that could potentially occur when using chemical exfoliants. It also minimizes the look of pores, contributing to the texture-reducing benefits of the solution. Combined with Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin, Niacinamide makes Soft Reset an exfoliating solution that's gentle enough to use everyday.
