The Ordinary Niacinamide Range

8 results

Niacinamide is one of our greatest skincare allies. This powerful ingredient targets various skin concerns ranging from hyperpigmentation to acne, signs of aging, wrinkles and fine lines. It also regulates sebum production on oily skin while helping dehydrated skin retain moisture. Ideal for all skin types, niacinamide not only helps our skin recover, but also supports a healthy skin barrier, preventing future damages!

The Ordinary’s niacinamide can be found in two forms: a serum and a powder. The serum is formulated with 10% niacinamide and 1% zinc and is ready to be applied to the skin. The 10% niacinamide powder is perfect to give your favourite The Ordinary product an extra, personalised niacinamide boost!

How to use The Ordinary Niacinamide Serum?

The Ordinary’s Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% High Strength Vitamin and Mineral Blemish Formula can be used on a daily basis, both in the morning and in the evenings. The lightweight formular can be applied before or after other water-based serums, but should be applied before creams and oil-based products.

How to use The Ordinary Niacinamide Powder?

The Ordinary’s 100% Niacinamide Powder can be mixed with any water-based skincare product with a pH higher than 5. Scoop up the powder with the spoon provided so that it is approximately a quarter full. Mix the scooped up niacinamide powder with your chosen product. Check your product’s compatibility with niacinamide before mixing.

Which The Ordinary Niacinamide product should I choose?

The answer depends on your preferences. The serum is packed with other skincare ingredients and does not need any preparation. The powder can be used for a more bespoke concentration of niacinamide. It also allows you to include niacinamide in your existing skincare routine without adding another layer of product to your skin, as it can be mixed with other formulas. It is important, however, to check if your chosen product is compatible with niacinamide.

Can The Ordinary Niacinamide be used on sensitive skin?

Niacinamide is safe to use on sensitive skin. As with all skincare products, it is ideal to do a patch test before applying the product to the entire face. If you find the serum too intense for your skin, you can try to use the niacinamide powder, as it allows you to regulate the concentration of niacinamide according to your needs and preferences.

Can The Ordinary Niacinamide be used everyday?

Yes! In fact, by using niacinamide everyday - mornings and evenings - you will get the most out of this incredible skincare hero!
