Equations...solutions...tongue twister kinda chemical names! Is that what came to your mind when you first read the title of this blog and maybe took you back to your chemistry lab in school?

Well, we do have something interesting in store for you but it isn’t as complicated as balancing equations! Hmm! That sounds relieving...

Let’s get started...

So, what is this mystery element – niacinamide?

Well, just to tone it down, niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 found in foods like whole grains and certain green vegetables. The synthetic form of this ingredient is mostly used in the making of serums and moisturizers.

Cool! But why the hype?

The hype – all because niacinamide supports the barrier of the skin and increases its resiliency while improving the texture of your skin and making pores look smaller. Another big bonus of this vitamin is that it helps in balancing your skin’s oil production and the jackpot is that, it is suitable for all skin types.

BUT! How to use it?

Niacinamide is already packed in certain serums and moisturizers that you can add to your daily routine. Confused about where to find these treasures? Well, Iba has its own range of niacinamide infused products from moisturizers to serum and even the BB Cream.

We’ll just list them for you so that you can start your niacinamide regime right away. If you have oily skin with acne and pimple problems then Crystal Clear Skin Tone Perfecting Gel Creme and the Crystal Clear 48 HR Hydrating Aloe Vera Gel would be perfect for you.

If you’re looking for a skin lightening solution then the Advanced Activs Ultra White Skin Lightening Creme is your new BFF!

And, if you’re looking for something that would boost your natural glow and double up as an anti ageing agent as well then the Youth Preserve Skin Glow Power Serum and the Youth Preserve Skin Brightening Day Creme shall be your go-to product from now on!

Lastly, if you love makeup but want a natural glow everyday then pick Iba’s Perfect Look BB Cream that’s a mixture of foundation and moisturiser and which is also generously infused with niacinamide.

Next BIG question! Any side effects of niacinamide?

Well, not really! It suits all skin types and gives you a clear and even skin tone you always wanted
