Vitamin B3

Vitamins are increasingly used in cosmetics and toiletries like shampoo, mascara, acne cream and cellulite cream.
 
Shampoo: Niacinamide penetrates the skin through the hair follicle to the dermis level, stimulating blood vessels and allowing more oxygen into the area. This improves the hair follicle and creates overall healthier hair.
 
Acne/skin disorders: Niacin penetrates the dermis layer of the skin, stimulating the vasodilation of the blood vessels and increasing blood flow.
 
Cellulite cream: Niacinamide, an anti-cellulite agent, encourages high blood dilation, stimulates circulation, and facilitates waste elimination in the tissue.
 
Anti-aging cream: Niacinamide provides a skin conditioning effect by promoting turnover of the corneus layer.
