The Ordinary. Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

(3,892)

Description

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is indicated to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. A high 10% concentration of this vitamin is supported in the formula by zinc salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid to balance visible aspects of sebum activity. 

Contraindications: If topical Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid and/or Ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid) is used as part of skincare, it should be applied at alternate times with this formula (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and this formula in the AM). Otherwise, Niacinamide can affect integrity of the Vitamin C. 

Notes: While Niacinamide and Zinc PCA reduce the look of blemishes and balance visible sebum activity, neither is a treatment for acne. For persistent acne-related conditions, we recommend the use of Benzoyl Peroxide and/or Retinoic Acid. DECIEM doesn't recommend ongoing use of BHA such as Salicylic Acid for persistent blemishes. For temporary improvement in appearance of blemishes, Salicylic Acid would help. This formulation can be used alongside acne treatments if desired for added visible skin benefits. 

Usage: Apply to entire face morning and evening before heavier creams. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to our in-depth guide to patch testing. Keep out of reach of children.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Niacinamide, Pentylene Glycol, Zinc PCA, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Tamarindus Indica Seed Gum, Xanthan gum, Isoceteth-20, Ethoxydiglycol, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin.

The first few times I used this it completely broke me out. Since I’ve found I can use it once or twice a week without a reaction but I don’t notice a chance in my skin.

A little goes a long way this product. Put it on before moisturiser, has really helped cleared my skin up.  Price is great too. Will definitely be trying other items in the brand range.

I love this product because I find it to be very moisturising but still a light formula serum and I have noticed a big change in my skin since I started using it, I barely get spots anymore!

If you have a problem with acne, darkspots, redness and large pores then this product is a must try. After religiously using this you'll notice a difference with the skin issues I mentioned.

I’m so happy I found this! I have spent hundred of dollars before looking for a good acne product and this is the best one! Most of my redness and pimples have disappeared in only a few weeks. The product is so good for the price.

No scent, which is great for sensitive skin. This serum really helped dry up pimples without irritating parts of my skin that did not have acne. At the price point, it’s really a no brainer!
