With so many clients coming to us with compromised skin, there was a demand to develop a multifunctional cosmeceutical that worked for all skin types and addressed a broad range of conditions.
Working with the skin for over 25 years, I have personally been witness to the real affinity that Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) has on the skin; it is a true multitasker and has the remarkable ability to ward off signs of premature ageing, reduce inflammatory markers and regulate the production of sebum (oil), making it an important ingredient for also treating over oily skin, breakouts and acne grade 1 and 2.
The synergistic blend of ingredients helps with cell metabolism – acting as a precursor to the production of important proteins required for skin health, including Collagen, Keratin, and Filaggrin. It can also stimulate ceramide synthesis, an important benefit when healing the barrier function and helping with dry skin conditions.
Since its creation, B+ has quickly become a hero product, the “go-to” formula for many of our clients concerned with expression lines or whose skin is stressed, out of balance, or on the verge of a breakout.
Note: The high concentration of B-Vitamins makes this a very potent skin shot, so use at the opposite end of the day to your Vitamin C complex, as they may cancel each other out.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3): A multi-tasking ingredient that helps fight the signs of ageing by boosting collagen, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Its anti-inflammatory effect stimulates the skin’s healing processes whilst suppressing excess sebum production, balancing oil on the skin’s surface.
Kiwi Extract: This NZ superfood is a powerful anti-ageing ingredient. Its high levels of polyphenols, flavonoids, carotenoids, and Vitamin C make it a potent antioxidant, neutralising the free radicals linked to ageing.
Panthenol (Vitamin B5): Stabilises the skin barrier function, so your skin is kept moist, plump, and protected. Panthenol also improves hydration, alleviating dryness and reducing the appearance of fine lines. A deficiency in vitamin B5 in the skin can result in serious dermatological disorders, which indicates how essential this ingredient is in maintaining skin health.
Hyaluronic Acid: A natural moisturiser found in your skin, this molecule can attract and retain more than 1,000 times its own weight in water. It works by drawing moisture from the air into your tissues, providing powerful hydration.
