Working with the skin for over 25 years, I have been witness to the real affinity that Vitamin B has with it. With so many clients coming to me 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.
My skincare range is developed with the philosophy that many skin conditions – including premature ageing, dryness, pigmentation, and acne – arise from inflammation. The environment bombards our skin daily with free radicals; rogue atoms that are deprived of an electron and scavenge to replace it with one from our healthy cells. This causes them to become electron scavengers, in turn, creating a domino effect that aggravates inflammation in the skin.
B-Vitamins are powerful antioxidants that provide free electrons to these scavengers, breaking the cycle of destruction. Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) also has a remarkable ability to reduce inflammatory markers in the skin and regulate the production of sebum, making it an important ingredient for treating acne. Niacinamide is vital for cell metabolism and acts as a precursor to the production of important proteins including Collagen, Keratin, and Filaggrin.
Since its creation, B+ has quickly become my hero product; the “go-to” formula for many of my clients whose skin is stressed, out of balance, or on the verge of a breakout. By harnessing the power of 10% Niacinamide and two other B-Vitamins within one formula, the synergistic benefits that each bring to the skin have been remarkable.
Note: The high concentration of B-Vitamins makes this a very potent skin shot that needs to be introduced carefully into your skincare routine. Use at the opposite end of the day to your Vitamin C treatment as they can cancel each other out. A Niacinamide reaction causes flushing; this is a temporary side effect and will pass.
