The secret to the Niacinamide Ultra 5 Serum lies behind the highest percentage of active ingredient, 5% Niacinamide.
Niacinamide, although not a new ingredient, has been taking the skincare world by storm, and for good reason. It’s a superhero ingredient.
Niacinamide has a long, well-researched and documented history of a wide range of remarkable benefits for all skin types and all ages. Touting multiple benefits from reducing inflammation, improving skin texture, reducing the appearance of pores and fine lines and wrinkles and many more.
Niacinamide, also known as Nicotinamide, is a physiological active, water-soluble form of Vitamin B3 (Niacin). Niacinamide can benefit the skin in many ways, including helping to improve the skin barrier. The skin barrier is the outermost layer of the skin, a water-tight membrane, that acts as a protective barrier against environmental stressors, moisture loss, and other factors that can damage the skin. A healthy skin barrier is essential for maintaining healthy, radiant skin. Niacinamide ensures this barrier remains healthy by increasing the synthesis of ceramides, lipids that aid the formation of the skin barrier.
This in turn combats the effects of Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL), which is the loss of moisture through the skin, leading to dryness. Niacinamide has also been shown to improve skin texture, by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, essential proteins that aid to maintain the skin’s structure and firmness.
With clinically proven anti-inflammatory activity, Niacinamide can also be used to treat acne, by reducing overall sebum production. When topically applied, 5% of Niacinamide is shown to improve overall skin texture, reducing signs of ageing and pigmentation.
It is important to note that Niacinamide does not need to be of a higher concentration than 3-5%. Concentrations higher than 5% do not grant increased efficacy, and may potentially pose issues such as irritation, redness, flushing and rebounding oil production.
This serum contains a high concentration of 5 potent ingredients to deliver 5 clinically proven benefits. Lets take a deeper look in to our other ingredients that make this serum so effective.
TRIPLE MOLECULAR WEIGHT HYALURONIC ACID
is a humectant, that helps to increase hydration, resulting in visibly plump skin. It is a form of Hyaluronic Acid that contains differing molecular sizes of the compound, which penetrate different levels of the skin, providing a more complete and thorough hydrating effect.
We have chosen to combine both larger molecules, that sit on the surface of the skin to provide immediate hydration, and medium-weight molecules, to penetrate deeper into the skin, to guarantee a comprehensive and intense hydrating action that will instantly leave your skin feeling plump and work below the surface for a long-lasting rehydration and firming result.
When Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide are combined, skin health and appearance are much improved, as both compounds complement each other’s effects. Niacinamide additionally increases the skin’s natural production of Hyaluronic Acid, exponentially increasing the skin’s hydration levels and overall texture and appearance of the skin.
STABILISED VITAMIN C
works to brighten the complexion and evening the skin tone. Vitamin C is highly unstable in the presence of light, water and air which means when exposed to these elements becomes inactive and can irritate the skin. We have carefully stabilised Ascorbyl Glucoside (Vitamin C) to make the potent antioxidant ingredient stable and pure, to produce firmer skin cells, prevent hyperpigmentation and defend against free radicals.
When used together, Niacinamide and Stabilised Vitamin C enhance each other’s benefits. Niacinamide helps to stabilise Vitamin C, preventing it from breaking down, which can lead to increased absorption and efficacy. Additionally, the combination can improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and brighten the skin.
derived from the seeds of the Babchi plant, is a plant-derived phytochemical that is known to have retinoid-like effects in vitro. Clinical studies suggest that topical bakuchiol acts similarly to topical retinol in improving facial wrinkles and pigmentation while being better tolerated with fewer side effects.
Niacinamide can help reduce irritation or redness that may occur because of using bakuchiol, making it a great pairing for those with sensitive skin.
ORGANIC ROSE WATER
possesses calming properties that effectively soothe redness. Sourced from Bulgaria and Morocco and is preserved with multifunctional antimicrobial ferment of natural origin.
When used with Niacinamide, the calming properties of both ingredients are enhanced, ensuring greater anti-inflammatory effects and soothing redness.
