What is Nicotinamide Powder?

Niacinamide is an amide compound of niacin. It is a white crystalline powder; odorless or almost odorless, bitter in taste; slightly hygroscopic. Soluble in water or ethanol, soluble in glycerol. Niacinamide was discovered early and was originally used to prevent inflammation of the mouth. Later, in 1974, a man named Girish Prasad Mathur discovered that niacinamide can absorb ultraviolet rays to prevent tanning and sunburn, and has a whitening effect when studying sunscreen, and therefore applied for two patents in 1974 and 1976. Niacin can be converted to nicotinamide in vivo, and although both compounds have vitamin effects, niacinamide is less pharmacologically and toxic than niacin, and these effects occur during the conversion of niacin. So niacinamide won't reduce cholesterol or cause flushing like niacin.

Niacinamide 99%0.5%-2%


When the concentration of niacinamide exceeds 5%, it is not easily absorbed by the skin; when it is less than 5%, the skin care effect will be moderated. Therefore, this product should be added appropriately within the dose range.

The pH of niacinamide should be controlled at 5-7. If the pH is lower than 5, it will decompose into niacin, which is irritating to the skin.

Avoid using in combination with acids such as salicylic acid and fruit acid, because under acidic conditions, niacinamide will decompose into niacin, causing irritation.
