In the skincare industry we are bombarded with products and ingredients that promise the proverbial fountain of youth or healthy skin. The race to improve skin conditions is a unique one. Entering the GlyMed Plus race is a new ingredient to our products, the dark horse in the race—VITAMIN B3.


Vitamin B3, also known as nicotinamide, niacinamide, and niacin, is an essential water-soluble vitamin. Despite the similarities in names, niacinamide is not the same as niacin. They are two different types of vitamin B3. When we refer to food and supplements, it is known as vitamin B3 and niacin.


Vitamin B3 is not produced in the body, meaning we have to eat it to receive its benefits. Since our bodies do not produce it, if we want to reap the skin benefits of vitamin B3, it needs to be applied topically to the skin or ingested as food or supplement. However, you should only take supplements for a deficiency when directed by your physician.

Foods that contain niacinamide or vitamin B3 are:

  • · Milk

  • · Eggs

  • · Beans

  • · Cereals

  • · Green Vegetables

  • · Fish

Even when eating these foods high in niacinamide or vitamin B3, there is no way to assure its impact on the overall health of our skin. The best way to guarantee the effects is to apply it topically. The development of products is not a sprint. It takes years of study and research to prove its claims. Any topically applied active ingredient needs to be formulated in such a way so it penetrates the skin and is used where it is needed. There are numerous benefits that come from using products that include this amazing ingredient. Here is a list of some of the benefits:

  • Improves Lipid Barrier

  • Increases Cellular Renewal

  • Minimizes pores

  • Reduces Inflammation

  • Regulates oil production

  • Reduces Hyperpigmentation

  • Reduces Fine Lines & Wrinkles

  • Protects against UV damage

  • Fights Free Radical Damage

  • Improves Acne Conditions

Niacinamide is not in the race to wipe out the competition. Instead, it goes the distance when paired with other ingredients. Niacinamide is a powerful ingredient for hydrating and brightening the skin. For instance, when paired with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, it has been shown to increase absorption and lock in moisture. When challenging pigmentation specifically, niacinamide is best paired with an ingredient like hydroquinone. Jennifer Herrmann, MD said, “Nicotinamide has been shown to prevent the transfer of pigment within the skin, which can help reduce brown spots…the ingredient can help reduce inflammation and hyperpigmentation, smooth your overall skin texture, and brighten your skin.”

Some of our favourite products that include niacinamide or vitamin B3 are CBD-B3 Facial Mist and CBD-B3 Age Delay Facial Dew. Here are a few examples of pairings:

  • Anti-Aging Duo | CBD-B3 Facial Mist + CBD-B3 Age Delay Facial Dew

  • Reducing Redness | Skin Restoring Fulvic Elixir + CBD-B3 Age Delay Facial Dew

  • Repairing | CBD-B3 Facial Mist + Daily Repair Mega Moisture

  • Acne Fighter | Oxygen Treatment Cream + CBD-B3 Age Delay Facial Dew

  • Luminous Glow | CBD-B3 Facial Mist + Beauty Oil

The results stand for themselves. Just like picking the winning racehorse, you can’t go wrong with the front runner, vitamin B3. Keep your eye on this dark horse as it continues to win in the hearts of your clients.
