About the product
- What is Niacinamide?
Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3, which has several positive effects on the skin.
- What skin types is it suitable for?
All skin types and all ages, including sensitive skin.
- Can I use it if I have sensitive skin?
Yes, it is dermatologically tested and approved for sensitive skin.
- Can I use it if I have rosacea?
The product is dermatologically tested and approved for sensitive skin but is not specifically tested for rosacea. Studies show that the ingredient Niacinamide can improve the appearance of rosacea skin, but if you feel uncertain, we advise you to consult your dermatologist.
- Does it contain fragrance?
No, the product is fragrance free.
- Is it vegan?
- Is the product tested on animals?
- Can I use it while I am pregnant?
Yes. To the best of both our and our Swedish manufacturers' knowledge, none of our products contain ingredients that can have a negative effect on a pregnancy. We therefore do not advise to restrict the use of our products during pregnancy. Should you in any way feel uncertain, we advise you to consult your midwife.
- How do I include this product in my skincare routine?
Use it as a new step in your skincare routine. Apply over cleansed face and neck before your serum, day cream or night cream. If you are using an essence water, treatment niacinamide formula should be applied after.
- Do I have to use a serum too?
No, you always choose how many or few products that fit your skin, budget and time. For instance, if you have oily skin you may not have to use any other product than treatment niacinamide formula.
- When should I use it?
It can be used both in the morning and evening.
- Can the product be applied around the eyes?
Yes, treatment niacinamide formula can be used around the eye area.
- How much should I use?
A pea-sized amount is sufficient for face and neck.
- Can I use it during the summer/when it is sunny outside?
Yes, Niacinamide is not affected by the sun. However, we always recommend the use of daily SPF for best results.
- Why a percentage of 4% Niacinamide?
Most studies conducted on the ingredient show that 2–4% is sufficient to give the desired effects. Higher concentrations can in some cases lead to side effects such as redness.
- Why does it contain Salicylic acid?
We have added Salicylic acid to increase the product’s ability to even out the skin tone, decrease unwanted hyperpigmentation and smoothen the skin complexion. While Niacinamide regulates the amount of sebum (oil) on the skin surface, Salicylic acid penetrates the pores and dissolves oil and dirt blocking them.
- Why does it contain Hyaluronic acid?
We have added Hyaluronic acid to boost it with extra hydration and help maintain the skin’s moisture balance.
Niacinamide and other ingredients/products
- Can I use it together with Vitamin A/Retinol?
Yes, Niacinamide does not react with Vitamin A. Thanks to Niacinamide’s ability to strengthen the skin barrier, it can actually make the skin less sensitive to Vitamin A in the long run.
- Is there any ingredient I should not combine with Niacinamide?
Be mindful about combining the product with other products containing Niacinamide. Too much of the ingredient can cause unwanted effects such as redness. If you have other products containing Niacinamide that you would like to continue using, we suggest you use one product in the morning and the other in the evening.
- Can I use it after Treatment Enzyme Peel?
Yes. By exfoliating the skin and removing dead skin cells, Treatment Enzyme Peel allows the following product to work even more effectively.
- Can I use it before Treatment Overnight Repair Mask?
Yes. For instance, both Niacinamide and the ingredient Tego Pep 4 Even (found in Treatment Overnight Repair Mask) prevents and treats hyperpigmentation, approaching the skin concern in two different ways.
- Can I combine it with all products from the Treatment-series?
Yes. If you wish to use them all, we suggest doing so in the following order: 1) enzyme peel, 2) niacinamide formula, 3) overnight repair mask, 4) super balm.
Independent studies and results
- How do you know it works?
In addition to all studies made on each ingredient, we have also chosen to conduct independent studies on our unique formula/product. The studies showed (among other things) a significant reduction in pore size and a significant improvement on the regulation of the skin’s oil production.
- When can I expect to see results?
The independent studies conducted show results after 4 weeks.
- I have heard you cannot remove pores?
That is correct. Pores cannot be removed or reduced in numbers. However, you can minimize the visibility of the pores.
