Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3, is a well-researched, multi-faceted active ingredient with a long list of skin benefits. It aids in the regulation of visible sebum activity and the processing of components that are essential for the skin’s structural and functional integrity. The Ordinary’s 100 percent Niacinamide Powder is the most direct topical Niacinamide exposure to target visible shine, swollen pores, and uneven skin texture. This powder format provides a DIY experience, allowing users to customize their use according to their preferences. In contrast to the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% solution, this powder format allows users to combine the benefits of Niacinamide with the benefits of other non-conflicting technologies (such as Peptide serums) to resolve several skin issues at the same time.
In the morning and/or evening, mix a quarter scoop of the spoon supplied with a water-based remedy in the palm of your hand and apply to the face. If contact with the eyes happens, rinse them thoroughly with water. Hands should be washed after handling. Mixing with formulations with a pH of 5 or lower is not recommended. On the product’s website, there are detailed mixing instructions. If pain happens, rinse it out, stop using it, and see a doctor. On unbroken skin, use only as guided. It is recommended that you test the product on a patch before using it. A patch evaluation guide, a regimen guide, and product compatibility can all be found on our website. Keep out of children’s control. Mixing Instructions: Niacinamide, in its purest form, is highly water soluble and readily dissolves in water-based products such as serums and creams. If the pH of the base is between 5.0 and 7.0, The Ordinary’s 100 percent Niacinamide Powder can be blended into any non-conflicting, water-based treatment. There are several choices available within The Ordinary brand when it comes to choosing a water-based base to blend with this recipe. The following are some of them: 2 percent Hyaluronic Acid + B5 Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA “Buffet” + Copper Peptides 10 percent Matrixyl 1 percent + 10% HA Argireline Solution Given the product’s powder format, one might wonder how much Niacinamide is in the final mixture. From a theoretical standpoint, if a scoop of powder contains approximately 0.05g Niacinamide, the resulting mixture, when combined with 4 drops of the chosen base, should produce a Niacinamide concentration of 10-15%.
Patch checks are a simple way to see whether you’re likely to have a negative reaction to a new product. Before adding every new product to your routine, it’s a good idea to do a patch test. Based on the type of product, we’ve outlined a general method for performing your own patch test below.
