The Ordinary NIACINAMIDE 10% + ZINC 1%

This is a combination product containing Niacinamide and Zinc. Regular use can help to reduce acne, rosacea, pigmentation and redness and to strengthen the skin barrier.

What we love about this product

Menopause limits moisture in the skin due to declining oestrogen levels which in time may create texture and skin imperfections. Menopause can also bring about acne, which can start early in the perimenopause.

This Niacinamide and zinc formula is ideal for areas that become problematic especially in areas such as the T-Zone – which is prone to becoming oily and congested with sebum and bacteria.

Niacinamide is actually the name for Vitamin B3. This vitamin works to limit and tackle acne, and also pigmentation, and skin ageing, while the zinc balances excessive oil and sebum levels on the face – in turn creating healthier skin in the long run.

When experiencing menopause the appearance of the skin can become altered giving it a dull, pale appearance. Regular use of this product can brighten the complexion by repairing damaged skin and collagen retention.

This vegan formula is free-from nuts, alcohol, and oil.

Backed by science

Niacinamide has been proven to significantly alter the appearance of aging on the skin, battling fine lines and wrinkles.

Niacinamide also helps reduce congestion and acne, as does Zinc.

Damaged skin has been found to affect the skin’s natural barrier which can lead to further issues. Niacinamide may help the skin barrier function.
