Multiple studies prove that niacinamide is effective for age-related changes: it increases the production of collagen and elastin, reduces wrinkles, evens out the skin tone and lightens age spots.
Niacinamide is also effective in treating various skin conditions: it reduces dryness and sensitivity of skin with rosacea, reduces inflammation of acne, regulates skin’s sebum production, reduces the size of pores, and also affects certain strains of bacteria, which cause skin infections.
It’s one of the few cosmetic ingredients able to penetrate the outer layer of skin (stratum corneum) and reach the deep layers (derma), because niacinamide has the molecular weight of less than 500 Dalton.
