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 received my first order and was SO suprised to find your "thank you" gift enclosed.

You folks know your stuff. Yes, I really needed everything you sent in that "thank you" package.

It's those small thoughtful things and your fair-priced products that will keep me coming back for more. :-)

I just received the L-Ascorbic Acid now, boy, it melted so quickly. i'm very, very pleased with this product. I wish I'd listened to the testimonials on-line so that my other L-Ascorbic Acid I bought from another retailer wouldn't be wasted. It takes too long before it melts even if its a fine powder. It is good for drinking with beverage as a Vitamin C supplement, but if you use it for facial serum - forget about it because the melting takes forever unless you mix it with hot water, then what's the point of doing it - we all know that Vitamin C oxides with hot temperatures.
So folks, if you want Vitamin C Serum, Lotioncrafter is the best, not to mention about their fast shipping!

I am a newbie at lotion malling and really appreciate the information provided by Lotioncrafters. I purchased Lotion Making 101 and Jenny was kind enough to make sure I got the ebook without having to use my ancient desktop. I highly recommend the book. It makes the process and ingredient possibilities very clear. And the quick shipping is fabulous. Again, thank you.
