Our skin is diverse and comes in all shades, types and with varying concerns. As a skincare brand, SKIN functional understands this, and therefore utilises its customer feedback to ensure its range and product formulations are agile, and always suitable to the different skin types. Using scientific research and dermatologically supported ingredients for skin along with customer feedback, SKIN functional launched its new Blemish Corrector Lite with 5% Niacinamide that is suited for skin types that can’t handle very high concentrations of the key ingredient.
The iconic 10% Niacinamide – Blemish Corrector has been tailored to be more inclusive to everyone’s skin needs. In the brand’s continuous quest to provide customers with a holistic offering to their skin needs, the Blemish Corrector Lite is able to offer people greater variety from the SKIN functional range.
About the 5% Niacinamide – the skin science
The skincare benefits of Niacinamide have been extensively documented in numerous peer-reviewed scientific publications, and it is easily one of the most dermatologist-recommended cosmetic actives. It has been used in dermatology for more than 45 years to treat a diverse range of conditions, including acne, rosacea, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, hyper-pigmentation, autoimmune bullous dermatoses, as well as the treatment / prevention of photo ageing and photo immunosuppression.
Niacin is a water-soluble B Vitamin that is made and used by the body to turn food into energy. It helps keep the nervous system, digestive system and skin healthy. Niacinamide is a biologically active form of niacin or vitamin B3 found widely in many plants and animals. Tryptophan is converted to Niacin in the body, and approximately 2/3 of your body’s Niacinamide is tryptophan derived.
