Vitamin B is a wonder vitamin for skin care because it is so versatile! Not only does it perform so many beneficial functions for the skin on its own, it complements other skin care ingredients to boost their power.

The most influential Vitamin B group in skin is B3 or niacinamide. It’s easily absorbed by the skin, so it gets straight to work deep in the layers of the skin where it’s needed, normalising the pH of the surface of the skin and increasing blood flow. This, in turn, means you receive more nutrients and oxygen to the skin, which simply helps with all skin functions.
