Vitamin B3 applied topically has many skin benefits. Increasing the skins energy levels, it is well tolerated and is also excellent for sensitive skin.
Melanin is a naturally occurring substance in the body, responsible for both the skins colour and the absorption of UV rays. Too much melanin can result in age spots, hyperpigmentation and freckles. Niacinamide is a derivative of Vitamin B3 that suppresses melanin from reaching the surface of the skin, protecting the skin from further UV damage.
Playing a fundamental role in skin health Niacinamide reduces the appearance of dark spots and pigmentation, evens out skin tone, helps skin cell renewal and stimulates the production of skin barrier proteins. It also reduces the skins’ inflammatory response. Mx Cosmeceutical Serum Vitamin B3 + has been formulated specifically to contain the correct percentage of Vitamin B3 and importantly the delivery system to allow it to penetrate the skin. The skin will only absorb what it can.
Vitamin B3 increases the production of ceramides, an essential component of the skin’s lipid barrier keeping the skin strong and preventing Trans Epidermal Water Loss [TEWL]. With an improved skin barrier, the skins natural ability to protect external aggressors becomes very much improved. The lipid barrier helps skin retain moisture, keeps it hydrated for longer and will protect it from harsh environmental agents.
Mx Cosmeceutical Serum Vitamin B3 + has the added boost of Peptides added to the formulation. Peptides are a short chain of amino acids, that are able to penetrate the top layer of the skin and send signals to the cells to enable them to function correctly boosting collagen production. Matrixyl 3000 (Peptide) works
by replicating the collagen breakdown, stimulating the skin to replenish lost collagen. When infused into anti-ageing skin care products, Matrixyl 3000 works to help skin regain its elasticity, become stronger and look more youthful.
Over time, daily application of Mx Cosmeceutical Serum Vitamin B3 + sees visible improvements in the skin, better synthesis and formation of collagen and elastin, together with educed redness, blotchiness and sensitivity caused by exposure to the environment due to a poorly functioning barrier.
