Niacinamide (vitamin B3)
Stimulates epidermal skin barrier lipid (ceramides) production resulting in increased hydration and decreased TEWL (Trans Epidermal Water Loss). It also stimulates barrier proteins such as keratin, involucrin and filaggrin essential for optimal barrier functioning and, because of this, decreases inflammation and increases protection from environmental damage.
Niacinamide addresses pigmentation by preventing the transfer of melanin from the melanocyte to the keratinocyte and there is continued research into the findings that niacinamide can prevent the immune system being supressed by sunlight. It can stimulate collagen production (B3 is a precursor of collagen) as well as regulate sebaceous lipid production and therefore the severity of acne lesions.
