FAQs

What is Niacinamide Face Cream?

Niacinamide cream contains vitamin B3, a powerful, water-soluble ingredient derived from niacin. As an essential nutrient, our bodies need sufficient vitamin intake to achieve optimal health. The nutritional guide published on Open.edu does a great job of explaining how this form of vitamin B is easily absorbed into the bloodstream and plays a vital role in energy production in cells — and research has recently discovered that these benefits can be achieved when applied topically, too.

That’s why many skincare companies have begun to offer niacinamide products in the form of face creams, serums, moisturizers, and more.

Benefits of Niacinamide Skin Products

Niacinamide (pronounced NYE-a-cin-a-mide) offers skincare benefits that anyone, of any age or skin type, can enjoy. Here are 10 reasons that help explain why including niacinamide in skin products has become so popular:

  1. It can reduce your risk of skin cancer, specifically melanoma.
  2. It helps build the protein known as collagen in skin cells, which keeps skin plump and less prone to wrinkling.
  3. It strengthens skin by aiding in cellular reproduction and retained elasticity.
  4. It fortifies the lipids in your skin barrier, thereby protecting against sensitivities.
  5. It seals in moisture to prevent skin from becoming dry and dehydrated.
  6. It regulates sebum (oil) production, reduces excessive shine, and prevents clogged pores.
  7. It is found in many anti-pigmentation creams for faces due to its ability to improve uneven skin tone and the appearance of dark spots.
  8. It minimizes the appearance of large pores and refines your complexion.
  9. It softens fine lines and acts as a wrinkle remover to improve the signs of aging.
  10. It reduces inflammation and redness associated with skin sensitivities, so it’s often used as an ingredient in face cream for rosacea.

Another great benefit of niacinamide products is that the compound is water-soluble, meaning it can be applied without an oil-based formula, which can trigger breakouts in those with excessive sebum production. You can also find it in many different varieties, ranging from niacinamide face cream to sunscreen.

For more information, check out our blog post that explains niacinamide in full detail.

What Products Contain Niacinamide?

At Colorescience, we offer different niacinamide skincare products depending on your desired outcome: are you looking for a preventive skincare solution to preserve your skin’s radiant vitality, or are you looking for niacinamide cream designed to restore your harmonious, youthful complexion?

Your Daily Dose of Vitamin B

We’re not talking about your morning supplements — we’re referring to the essential sunscreen protection you should apply every day before walking out the door. Note that just 15 minutes of unprotected sun exposure can damage skin, leading to premature signs of aging including wrinkles, fine lines, and sunspots.

Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 is one of our niacinamide products that provides critical defense against the sun’s harsh ultraviolet (UV) radiation and environmental aggressors, in addition to the benefits offered by vitamin B.

The 100% pure, mineral-based formula provides excellent broad-spectrum coverage that protects against both UVA and UVB radiation. But with Total Protection, you get defense that extends beyond UV light — all-natural, specialty ingredients are used in the formula to put up a fight against elements in the environment known to damage skin, such as:

  • Blue light – Iron oxides help protect skin from damage and photoaging caused by the blue (HEV) light emitted from LED screens on your devices.
  • Infrared radiation – InfraGard is our proprietary blend of tara tannins (a strong antioxidant) and organic sunflower sprouts that helps to protect skin against the aging effects of infrared radiation (IR).
  • Pollution – LIPOCHROMAN®, a powerful antioxidant, defends against skin damage due to free radicals in polluted air.

These are just a few examples of the additional benefits you stand to gain by adding this niacinamide skincare product to your regimen — not to mention the nourishing hydration and invisible formula that blends seamlessly with all skin tones. And Colorescience has recently introduced tinted versions of this niacinamide product that you can use to achieve a customized look.

Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield GLOW SPF 50 provides a pearlescent glow that can be worn with or without makeup for a lit-from-within iridescence.

Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield BRONZE SPF 50 delivers a boost of warmth with a rich, golden tone that makes skin look kissed by the sun — minus the sun’s damage.

Correct an Uneven Complexion

If you’re looking for an even skin tone cream to balance out redness, take advantage of niacinamide cream that can soothe inflammation and defend against sensitivities known to trigger flare-ups.

All Calm® Clinical Redness Corrector SPF 50 is another niacinamide product brought to you by Colorescience. This 3-in-1 formula is clinically proven to provide essential UV protection, calm sensitive skin, and instantly neutralize the appearance of redness with subtle, green undertones.

The powerful formula is powered by BioSolace™, our proprietary blend of refined ingredients that helps provide ongoing relief from sensitivity. This niacinamide product not only contains vitamin B, but also vitamin E in combination with potent plant extracts that are as gentle as they are effective.

Can I Use Two Products with Niacinamide?

Absolutely, you can pair Colorescience niacinamide products with one another. Use the Redness Corrector to balance your skin tone for a harmonious complexion, then layer your look with our bronze Face Shield contoured to accentuate your best features.

All Colorescience formulas are non-comedogenic, so you don’t have to worry about clogged pores with layered products, and they’re 100% chemical-free, meaning they won’t cause harsh dehydration or irritation. We’re committed to using only the highest quality ingredients in our niacinamide products, as well as our entire skincare collection.
