What is Niacinamide?

Niacinamide also known as nicotinamide is a sub-type of vitamin B, one of the 8 types. Niacinamide is a water-soluble Vitamin. Vitamin B is responsible for a variety of functions in the body and skin. The body is capable of manufacturing niacinamide when there is surplus niacin, moreover, the human body changes an amino acid called tryptophan into niacinamide.

Niacinamide is found in many foods including fish, meat, milk, eggs, and green vegetables. 

The main function of niacinamide in the body is to regulate the function of fats and sugars to maintain healthy cells.

Niacinamide is taken to overcome vitamin B deficiency and related conditions such as Pellagra.

It is also used to treat certain skin conditions such as acne and eczema.

Niacinamide and its relationship with human skin 

Niacinamide has a plethora of benefits for the skin. It aids in manufacturing keratin, a protein that maintains skin health. It works its way to make the skin stronger, brighter, and smoother.

Niacinamide when combined with ingredients like retinol has proved to nourish the skin and treat conditions such as acne.

Let's discuss some of the benefits of Niacinamide:


Niacinamide is known for its moisturizing powers. It helps the skin to retain and regain moisture. The era we are living in today makes the skin vulnerable to alot of damage due to excessive exposure to UV rays, sunlight, dirt, and dust. This consequently leads to dry, flaky, and damaged skin 

Niacinamide works best with glycerin, non-fragrant plant oils, cholesterol, and sodium- the ingredients of moisturizers. The topical application of this ingredient improves the hydration capacity of the moisturizers used. However, the skin locks the moisture in and it enhances the function of the skin’s lipid barrier.


Redness due to conditions such as acne, rosacea, and eczema is seen to reduce with niacinamide. In addition to this, it has been shown to reduce and soothe irritation caused by strong exfoliating agents such as retinol and glycolic acids.

Brightens skin:

Studies show that tranexamic acid and niacinamide work best together. When used with other ingredients that are used for reducing discoloration of the skin such as vitamin C, licorice, retinol, and bakuchiol have shown improved results. 

Whenniacnimadie is used in concentrations of 5% and greater it works through different pathways to keep the skin safe from discoloration. Simultaneously it also helps in reducing the existing decoloration or even skin tone.

Reduces Pores:

Studies confirm that nothing reduces the size of the pore. however, niacinamide helps in giving a smooth clear texture to the skin which in turn helps in the appearance of pores. Niacinamide also helps in regulating the amount of oil your glands produce preventing breakouts and clogged pores.
