What makes this product unique?

Niacinamide, one of the two active forms of vitamin B3, is an essential nutrient for living cells. It is a well-researched molecule of importance as it builds an epidermal barrier that acts as the first line of defence against oxidative stress.

When applied topically, Niacinamide's performance largely depends upon the concentration of Vitamin B3 in the product. For maximum results, Minimalist serum is formulated with a high 10% concentration of pure Niacinamide that is lab tested to inhibit melanin synthesis and deliver even skin tone in 2 weeks. The Vitamin B3 and mineral Zinc duo are potent enough to reduce visible blemishes and clear congested pores. Also, our unique formulation based on aloe juice instead of water makes it ultralight that easily sinks in with no sticky residue.

While the combo of Niacinamide and Zinc reduces acne marks and controls sebum activity to a great extent, it is not a remedy for persistent acne. For persistent acne, we recommend the use of 2% Benzoyl peroxide or 2% Retinoid. This formulation can be used along with acne treatments for the added advantage of visibly clear skin.

What does it do?

The soothing aloe-based formula contains pure 10% Niacinamide that is clinically proven to promote protein synthesis, reduce melanin concentration & improve skin complexion in 2 weeks. Oil-free lightweight serum coupled with Zinc that balances sebum activity and reduces inflammation, leaving smooth textured skin with no sticky residue.

1. How does Niacinamide work on your face?
When applied topically, Niacinamide works on our skin by getting converted to NADH and NADPH; these compounds provide energy to the cells tackling free radicals and boosting protein synthesis, hence providing a protective skin barrier. This conversion also reduces the production of sebum, aiding in the prevention of acne and blemishes.

2. Does Niacinamide help in lightening or brightening of the skin?
Scientific studies have proven its property to inhibit melanin production, which helps treat hyperpigmentation and lightening dark spots hence enhancing skin tone. Still, there are no clinical studies of it providing a lighter skin tone. But it is found to improve overall complexion.

3. What are the side effects of Niacinamide? Can it cause purging?
It is one of the mildest molecules suitable for all skin types and has clinically shown no significant side effects. However, as Niacinamide causes skin turnover, some people might experience purging, especially when using a highly concentrated product like this one. Purging is a natural phenomenon wherein your skin adjusts to the new active, especially the ones that increase cell turnover. It may not last for more than 2-3 weeks depending upon your skin condition and regimen.

4. What is the right age to start using Niacinamide serum?
Niacinamide is safe to use at any age, but you will need it after 18 -20 years when the body's natural ability to form a skin barrier starts degrading. It can also be used in your teenage to combat acne marks caused by your teen acne.
