Skin care products are filled with mysterious, hard-to-pronounce ingredients that all promise to solve our skin care woes. For some people, it’s enough to know what the product label tells them. For others, they prefer to truly understand why each ingredient is used, and what it will do for their skin. If you belong to the latter group, this post is for you.

To start shedding light on some of today’s best ingredients, I thought we should start with one of my favorites: niacinamide. Niacinamide is gentle yet powerful, and can treat many skin care concerns.

Niacinamide, also known as nicotinamide, is a water-soluble B vitamin. It is identical to niacin (vitamin B3) in vitamin function, but it works without the toxic effects of niacin, making it safe to use on the skin. Niacinamide is an anti-inflammatory, reduces hyperpigmentation, smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, reduces red blotches, and brightens sallow skin. Studies also show that topical niacinamide is able to boost skin elasticity.

Based on the above abilities, niacinamide is ideal for treating many common skin care concerns, including acnerosacea, prematurely aging skin, and skin puffiness.

Atopalm harnesses the power of niacinamide to treat eye area concerns with the proven Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum. This lightweight serum restore moisture with Atopalm’s MLE technology while niacinamide and other potent ingredients work together to brighten, smooth, and reinforce the eye area, thereby creating a more beautiful and youthful appearance.
