Benefits of Niacinamide
Also called Vitamin B3 or nicotinic, Niacinamide is a powerful anti aging ingredient that leaves skin with even tone, texture and diminished hyperpigmentation. Improving elasticity and the moisture barrier, Niacinamide also increases ceramides and removes fatty acids which improves circulation and diminishes rosacea and acne breakouts.

Benefits of Ceramides in Skin
Ceramides are natural lipids in the epidermis that aid in moisture retention, an important part of relieving and preventing dry and itchy skin. Ceramides also help to bind the skin structure. They are like little band aids.
