More About Niacinamide
TAUN’s Facial Repair Formula contains Niacinamide. When topical niacinamide is used as part of a man’s skin regimen, it is proven to naturally reduce wrinkles and improve pigmentation.
“Analyses of the data revealed a variety of significant skin appearance improvement effects for topical niacinamide: reductions in fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmented spots, red blotchiness, and skin sallowness (yellowing). In addition, elasticity (as measured via cutometry) was improved.” Dermatologic Surgery
“There are 2 important enzymes (NADH and NADPH) that contribute to the production of cellular energy and lipids (responsible for cell growth). With a sufficient supply of both enzymes, your skin creates an effective barrier to external factors that influence the aging process. However, the levels of both NADH and NADPH decline as we grow older. When applied topically, vitamin B3 seems to reduce their rate of decline.” Pharmacy Mix
“Topically applied niacinamide has been shown to increase ceramide and free fatty acid levels in skin, prevent skin from losing water content, and stimulate microcirculation in the dermis. It also has a growing reputation for being able to treat an uneven skin tone and to mitigate acne and the red marks it leaves behind (known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). It is an excellent ingredient for those struggling with wrinkles and breakouts.” The Cosmetics Cop
“Rosacea is a chronic, cyclical skin condition with no cure, according to the Mayo Clinic. The main symptom of rosacea is red skin tone and the cyclical flareups bring red bumps and pustules to the surface. Niacinamide has been cited in two different studies as a well-tolerated treatment. Wake Forest University scientists tested 50 subjects with rosacea. Their study, which was published in the August 2005 issue of “Cutis,” found that applying a niacinamide-based moisturizer to the face and forearm twice daily for four weeks alleviated symptoms of the condition.” Livestrong
“Niacinamide is one of the two principal forms of vitamin B3 (nicotinic acid is the other). Niacinamide serves as a precursor of NADH and NADPH, which are co-enzymes (facilitators of enzymatic reactions) essential for numerous metabolic pathways. In particular, these co-enzymes play a key role in metabolism of glucose, cellular energy production, synthesis of lipids and so forth. The levels of NADH / NADPH decrease with age, and topical niacinamide appears to reverse the decline.” Smart Skincare.com
