The Ordinary’s 100% Niacinamide Powder is perfect for those who are already obsessed with the bestselling serum, but want to be able to tailor their usage to better address their skin’s own, unique needs.
An excellent all-rounder, niacinamide – also known as vitamin B3 – has a spectrum of benefits, from minimizing visibility of pores to improving uneven skin tone, fortifying barrier function, diminishing dullness and softening fine lines and wrinkles as well as reducing the redness that follows a breakout.
In this ‘mixable’ format, you’re able to marry its benefits with other (non-conflicting) formulations to address several needs in one step. Readily water soluble, this can be added to your favourite water-based creams and serums, providing that the pH is between 5.0 and 7.0 (so nothing too acidic or too alkaline).
To use the formula, mix a quarter scoop of the spoon provided with a water-based treatment in the palm of your hand and apply to the face in the morning and/or evening. Avoid contact with eyes, if contact occurs rinse thoroughly with water. Wash hands after handling. Do not mix with formulations with a pH of 5 or lower.
Niacinamide can be used in the AM and PM.
