How does Niacinamide work in cosmetics?

Hoe werkt Niacinamide in cosmetica?

Niacinamide is completely hip in the world of cosmetics. But what is it? It is also called nicotinamide. You could say it is the amide of the Niacin, nicotinic acid. The 'vitamin B3' packaging is often indicated while the inci name is Niacinamide. In the biochemistry, the structural element of the amide is often referred to as a peptide bond. That is a complicated term that requires explanation, but we are going to do that in a separate blog article. Antioxidants are known as a dietary supplement, but now niacinamide (molecular formula C6H6N2O) is processed as an antioxidant in all kinds of products within the cosmetics. But does it really work?

Laboratory research shows that the acid niacinamide is a kind of 'Packman' of free radicals. The latter are often in your body, but not always the 'Bad Guys'. While on your skin and face you would rather not want molecules that are unstable. This means that they react quickly to other substances that degenerate the skin. There are several Investigate that confirm a positive effect.

In addition to examining that laboratory, there is Research that shows that niacinamide in Real Life applied to the skin a measurable positive effect. And a research that Shows that damage from UV as pigmentation reduced!
The very best news is that when using niaciamide you can notice the difference. At least if the cosmetics comprises a number of conditions. Aurora Dionis has developed a high-quality, effective, 100% natural and vegan dermacosmetics product. You can read more about the secret of the N ¡ 8 Hyaluronic water.

(Links in the list refer to studies.)

When the skin is affected or suffer from pimples, acne, inflammatory reactions, redness, pigmentation spots, fine lines, enlarged pores, a product with niacinamide is decided to advisable. Then choose a dermacosmetics product with 4% niacinamide in any case.

Niacinamide conditions in dermacosmetics

Niacinamide But other antioxidants also work effectively in the dermacesmetics if a number of conditions are met. Here you can read that of Niacinamide:

  • Combining niacinamide with other antioxidants or active ingredients
    antioxidants are acids that combine each other's operation. Choose a product where more than just niacinamide has been added as acid.
  • Oxygen-free packaging.
    Acids are very sensitive to oxygen and light. If you find them in a jar, the manufacturer did not take the skin seriously. The operation is negligible and worse the effect can even be counterproductive! Active Niacinamide is in an airtight packaging.
  • concentration must be sufficiently high. Active percentages are so around 4%.
    Percentage is often not given on dermacesmetics packaging. That means you have to guess a bit with the following adjustment: ingredients are in order of percentage presence on the inci list. An entry in the first part of the inci indicates the highest presence. The lower an ingredient on the list shows the less in the product.

Secret of Niaciamide in N ¡ 8 Hyaluronic Water

The secret of the niaciamide in the Aurora Dionis Dermacosmetics n ¡ 8 is that niacinamide is combined with hyaluronic acid. The n ¡ 8 Hyaluronic water contains 5% niacinamide and 1.8% hyaluronic acid. This exceptionally high concentration and combination of these two very active ingredients give your skin a real boost. They provide support in multiple ways and in several skin layers.

We call a few important aspects:

Stimulating the fibroblasts that create collagen in the connective tissue. The highly moisturizing effect in combination with building a ceramide (lipid) skin barrier. Healthy skin barrier gives a sufficient hydrated skin. A disturbed skin barriere often gives small inflammatory reactions. Niacinamide, and reinforced in combination with hyaluronic acid, inhibits inflammatory reactions and increases the production of the protein keratin and philangrine. Skin with eczema often has a shortage of phiographine.

Is there a contraindication for Niacinamide?

No. For every skin but certainly for the affected and / or dry skin, with acnŽ, eczema and for mature skin, niacinamide offers important effects. Due to the calming effect, even dermatologists put niacinamide in certain skin conditions in order to unwind.
