❓ Why is the Vitamin C + Niacinamide combination a more potent hyperpigmentation treatment?
🙋 While both Vitamin C and Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) target pigmentation disorders, they utilise two different hypopigmenting mechanisms. As a result, the combination targets hyperpigmentation in two different ways. Niacinamide inhibits melanosome transfer to keratinocytes (our skin cells representing about 90% of the epidermis), while Vitamin C focuses on tyrosinase inhibition (tyrosinases are responsible for melanin formation). .

Vitamin C Serum and Niacinamide Serum Boost Collagen Production, Microneedling, Medical Professionals
❓ How can you increase serum absorption at home?
🙋 The very best and scientifically proven method to increase skincare absorption, boost collagen production, and improve pigmentation issues is Microneedling. It is always recommended to get the procedure done professionally since the needles used by medical professionals can increase collagen production up to 400% in just four sessions*. However, home-care dermarollers do wonders and can be used more often because of the significantly shorter needles. . *PMCID: PMC4976400

Can Vitamin C and Niacinamide Serums Cause Side Effects?
❓ Can Vitamin C and Niacinamide cause side effects? 🙋 Every skincare treatment can potentially cause side effects, such as skin irritations. However, the chances of side effects from Vitamin C and Niacinamide treatments are significantly lower than other ingredients, such as Hydroquinone, a skin-lightening agent that can cause skin bleaching.

Vitamin C and Niacinamide Serums Ascorbic Acid
❓ Will the combination of Vitamin C and Niacinamide cause skin irritations?
🙋 This misconception is based on older research on how mixing Ascorbic Acid with Niacinamide can convert the latter into Niacin, which can cause skin inflammations. In practice, Niacinamide is one of the most stable vitamins. There are specific studies* reporting test results of 10% Niacinamide solution being autoclaved in water at 120° without any degradation occurring for 20 minutes. These are extreme laboratory conditions that cannot be easily replicated in everyday life.
