Vitamin B’s one of the most underrated vitamins. It can also be confusing too because of its many different forms. What you need to know is that there are three primary forms: vitamin B3 (also known as niacin), vitamin B5 (also known as panthenol), and vitamin B12. Niacinamide, one of the skin care world’s stars, is a derivative of vitamin B3. They’re incredibly full of antioxidants and stable, which means they’re reliable and keep well in skin care formulations.
Benefits: Vitamin B3 has been shown to boost collagen production and also reduce dark spots. Niacinamide, a derivative of vitamin B3, has been shown to improve the ability of the epidermis, the upper most layer of the skin, to retain moisture. Vitamin B5 is used as a humectant and is highly popular in moisturizers, shampoos and hair conditioners, offering barrier conditioning effects on the skin
Skin Types: Vitamin B is suitable for everyone. Try out different derivatives to see which one works the best for you!
