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.

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!

These guys work in timely manner for sure. After I placed my order on Internet they called me in about 15 min because they had some questing about my address. They also made sure that the method of shipment would meet my needs. The little dish that I got was chipped - they sent me the replacement in no time. I haven't yet made any lotions from the ingredients I've got. I will and I'll tell you my opinion soon! Olga
