You may be using a niacinamide skin care treatment without even knowing it. Also known as Vitamin B3, niacinamide isn’t as well known as retinoids, antioxidants or AHAs. However, it’s a powerhouse ingredient that comes with no shortage of benefits when used as part of a regular skin care regimen. Think of niacinamide as the quieter, heads down colleague who always delivers on time. Just like that co-worker, who may never get the recognition, niacinamide really, really needs to be on your team!



Niacinamide is found in all our bodies with a large concentration found in tissues like the brain, heart, liver and skeletal muscle. It plays an important role in energy production. For those of you interested in the science, niacinamide works by reducing the rate of decline of two important enzymes (NADH and NADPH) which are involved in cellular energy production and fats that are responsible for cell growth.

Foods rich in niacinamide include yeast, meat, milk, and green vegetables.

Niacinamide Skin Care

Niacinamide skin care products have the following beneficial properties:

  • Anti-inflammatory, thereby useful in conditions including psoriasis, rosacea and acne
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Prevents moisture loss
  • Increases ceramide (lipid) production
  • Lightens pigmentation and evens skin tone.

Formulators include niacinamide in their treatments to treat:

  • Dry skin
  • The appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Pigmentation and
  • Acne breakouts. One study compared niacinamide 4% to Clindamycin (a popular prescription treatment for acne) and noted that they were equally effective in controlling breakouts.

Niacinamide skin care therapies are beneficial for younger skin burdened by acne and they also benefit more mature skin.

Our favourite niacinamide skin care product is Apothekari A is for Anti-Aging. In this treatment, it is combined with other actives to deliver antioxidant, skin brightening, anti-acneic, skin smoothing and skin hydration benefits. This is my go to serum at night and it’s one that I wouldn’t give up, ever!

I'm loving this deodorant from Apothekari! I'm very skeptical about natural deodorants because I perspire a lot and had always used antiperspirants. Wanting to go more natural, I've tried a few natural deodorants and this is by far the best. I can apply in the a.m., go overnight, and work out the next a.m. without having to reapply. I also love the smell. I have scent sensitivities and this citrus-ginger mix doesn't bother me at all. Super-happy with my purchase.

My recent order of apothecary

I’m so pleased with my products! My skin is already more radiant, pores are tighter !

Great deodorant!

I’ve tried many natural deodorants with mixed results. The Apothekari deodorant works GREAT, even when doing intense workouts. I also like the scent of all of the products. The skin of my underarms seems to have improved texture as well. I will definitely repurchase.

It works wonders! But strong scent...

This is the first and only natural deodorant that has kept me fresh for more than 6 hours. I put it on at night after my shower and it keeps me Oder free for around 12 hours. LUMÉ couldn’t do that for me! I wouldn’t buy this particular scent again though, I thought it would have a nice balance between the Neroli and Rose, but I cannot smell Rose at all - in my opinion it comes off smelling very manly. Next time I will order the lavender and bergamot scent.

The deodorant is great, gently shake and roll on. It’s very watery so I rub my arms back and forth to get it applied everywhere and then wait for a second in front of the fan before putting on a shirt. But it sooo worth it!!! Amazing deodorant and no rashes! My skin feels healthy. I have been using it for about a month.

Game Changer!

I've tried prescriptions and other products that claim to help with vaginal dryness and none compare to this product. So natural and no added hormones or perfumes. A real game changer for me! Also BEST name for this!
