Ten years ago DSM pioneered Niacinamide PC, a form of vitamin B3, for use in cosmetic applications. Since then the product has become extremely popular because of its remarkable efficacy. With the development of our upgraded Niacinamide PC customers can benefit from a topical vitamin B3 while minimizing potential unwanted effects such as unpleasant sensations of heat in the skin. These are caused by residual nicotinic acid. DSM’s branded vitamin B3 is guaranteed to contain less than 100 ppm residual nicotinic acid, making it exceptionally well tolerated. And - Vitamin B3 still has the power to surprise! Recent proprietary research by DSM revealed that it could prove a powerful ally in the latest challenges facing the beauty industry: environmental pollution and ubiquitous blue light.
Blue light was shown to significantly increase oxidative stress in skin by inducing reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS can in turn cause damage to proteins and lipids. In the case of proteins this can occur in the form of carbonylated proteins. Niacinamide PC significantly reduces ROS and carbonylated proteins levels in human skin in response to blue light irradiation. Niacinamide has been shown to enhance the repair of DNA damage in human keratinocytes and in human skin. It also has the potential to prevent UV-induced immuno suppression and reduced skin pigmentation in 3D skin model.
