Ingredient Highlight: Niacinamide

All about Niacinamide

One of K-beauty's star ingredients, Niacinamide is a common ingredient that can do wonders for your skin. In this post, we will be sharing all about the benefits and effects of Niacinamide, as well as our top product recommendations!

Also known as Nicotinamide or Vitamin B3, Niacinamide is a water-soluble ingredient that penetrates the skin, binding with all the natural substances in your skin to improve its overall health and glow. It also helps to protect and improve your skin barrier, even out your complexion, minimize pores and prevent fine lines and wrinkles from forming.

An all-rounder, products with Niacinamide can be used by people of all skin types. Those with oily skin will benefit from Niacinamide's oil control properties (as it tightens pores and lessens sebum production), and those with dry and dehydrated skin will also enjoy it as it helps to lock in moisture in the skin barrier.

Niacinamide is suitable for all skin types

The best-known property of Niacinamide is its acne-healing and pigmentation-fading properties. Niacinamide is a powerful ingredient that can reduce skin irritation (leading to soothed skin with fewer breakouts), as well as erase dark spots and pimple marks.

Finally, Niacinamide also helps prevent signs of aging. Helping to visibly reduce fine lines & wrinkles, Niacinamide is an ingredient that you should start incorporating into your skincare routine today.

Niacinamide is an ingredient that is most-effective in leave-on products (such as moisturizers, serums, essences, and sheet masks). Here are some of our Niacinamide product recommendations, all of which are available on Althea!

It's also formulated without any harmful ingredients or alcohol, making it suitable even for those of us with more sensitive skins.
