What is Niacinamide? The What, Why & How

Equations...solutions...formulae! Tongue twister kinda chemical names!

Is that what came to your mind when you first read the title of this blog and maybe this took you back to your chemistry lab in your school days?

Well, we do have something interesting in store for you but it isn’t as complicated as balancing equations! Hmm! That sounds relieving right?

Let’s get started...

So, what is this mystery element – niacinamide?

Well, just to break it down for you in simpler terms, niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3 found in foods like whole grains and certain green vegetables. The synthetic form of this ingredient is mostly used in the skincare industry for making serums and moisturizers.

Cool! But why the hype?

The hype – all because niacinamide supports the barrier of your beautiful skin and that increases its resiliency while improving the texture of your skin, which in the process makes your pores appear smaller. Another big bonus of this vitamin is that it helps in balancing your skin’s oil production (sebum production) and the jackpot is that, it is suitable for all skin types.

BUT! How to use it?

Niacinamide is already packed in certain serums and moisturizers that you can add to your daily routine. Confused about where to find these treasures? Well, Iba has its own range of niacinamide infused products from face washes, moisturizers to serums and even the BB Cream.

We’ll just list them for you so that you can start your niacinamide regime right away.
