Niacinamide is a very effective whitening skin care ingredient. Many whitening skin care products on the market contain niacinamide. Niacinamide has certain irritation, and there are many precautions when using it.
What can nicotinamide work with?
Niacinamide + retinol
The most significant role of nicotinamide is whitening, an alcohol anti-inflammatory reaction, regulating the growth and differentiation of epidermal cells, promoting collagen production, improving sebaceous gland function, reversing photoaging, inhibiting melanin production, promoting dermal layer thickening, etc. Whitening, anti-aging, and fine pores have a role in the use of nicotinamide and alcohol can be used together to get better cosmetic results.
Can niacin be used with VC?
Vitamin C is a very beneficial skin care ingredient, it is also recommended for everyone to use, for whitening and anti-aging, nicotinamide and VC superimposed effect is better, but vitamin C and A alcohol/nicotinamide should not be used together, the best role of VC PH (3.5 or lower) and A alcohol have the best effect PH (around 5.5~6.5), nicotinamide best effect PH (about 6) is not the same, so it is not recommended to use at the same time, because it will affect the whitening effect.
When nicotinamide is used to whiten and improve pigmentation, it is more necessary to work synergistically with other ingredients. In terms of mechanism of action, there are three main ways to improve the pigmentation/cosmetic component of pigmentation:
1. Reduce the synthesis of melanin, such as hydroquinone, arbutin, kojic acid.
2. Interfere with melanin transport, such as niacinamide, soy protein.
3. Accelerate keratinocyte metabolisms, such as acid, salicylic acid, and retinoic acid.
Nicotinamide can't be mixed with anything
Nicotinamide cannot be mixed with acidic substances. If mixed, it will cause the pH value of the skin to change. Niacinamide releases a lot of niacin, which causes irritation to the skin. If you really want to use it, it is recommended to use acid at night, use nicotinamide during the day, or use nicotinamide 30 minutes after using salicylic acid or fruit acid.
