Vitamin B3, Niacinamide USP, FCC
CAS No. 98-92-0 

ATTENTION DR. OZ FANS:  THIS IS NOT A READY-MADE LOTION; THIS IS A COSMETIC RAW MATERIAL AND IT IS A POWDER.  It is meant to be used at an appropriate percentage in a cosmetic formulation of your devising. Please do not order this unless you know how to formulate creams and lotions with it!  


Niacinamide is the active form of Vitamin B3. A safe, nonirritating cosmeceutical ingredient which research shows can offer a number of benefits in improving the appearance of aged and photodamaged skin and improve skin moisturization.

While its precise mechanism of action is not clear, clinical studies have shown topical niacinamide to be effective in improving skin texture and the appearance of hyperpigmented spots, with improvement in red blotchiness and the reduction of the severity of fine lines.

It has been shown to stimulate collagen synthesis and production of ceramide, a lipid compound that contributes to the functional and structural integrity of the skin barrier. Theoretically, by improving barrier integrity, niacinamide may help the skin become more resistant to external irritants.  

Topical use of niacinamide has been shown in clinical studies to effectively reduce the rate of sebum excretion and its casual serum levels.

Formulation Guidelines:

  • Add to the water phase of formulations
  • Can be added directly into a finished cream or base cream
  • Avoid use in acidic formulations to avoid hydrolysis and formation of nicotinic acid (which can be irritating to skin)
  • Final pH of product should be about pH 6

Our Niacinamide meets USP specifications, but it is considered a cosmetic grade material once we repackage it.

This is a cosmetic raw material and is meant for external use only in cosmetic formulations.  As with all of our materials, it should not be taken internally.

Our Customers Say...
I order from the UK and can't say what a pleasure it is to buy from you. It's wonderful to have such a good choice of products to choose from too. :-) My parcel always arrives properly processed and well packed. Although I sometimes wait a while for it due to customs - it's always well worth the wait!
Thank you for such an excellent service!

I'm exploring making lotions, creams, & balms to add to my line of CP soaps. Lotioncrafter is the best! Nice selection of ingredients and tools, very good prices, smaller quantities available for my test batches, excellent service. And love the customer reward points too!

Second order from LC. Experience with customer service, shipping and product quality are superb.

I did an extensive research on suppliers, and I have to say you can pretty much get everything from here.

I highly recommend this supplier to anyone and everyone.

Happy finding!

I just love Lotioncrafter ...they ALWAYS ship your order out immediately without an extra charge like some companies & I once ordered the wrong item & noticed within couple hours they corrected my mistake right away and most other suppliers will not do that. Honestly my favorite supplier. I only go elsewhere if it's something they don't carry (micas,oxides ect..) several times over the past year and half I've been ordering & they are super reliable
Thank you
