Multi-benefit Active for Personal Care

Niacinamide is a multi-benefit ingredient that has been used for years to enhance the efficacy of skin and hair care formulas. It helps to improve the tone and texture of skin while helping to boost the overall appearance of hair. Lonza is pleased to offer Niacinamide USP PC, a low niacin version that is ideal for the personal care market.

Niacinamide (nicotinamide) comprises one of the two forms of Vitamin B3; niacin (or nicotinic acid) being the other, both of which provide equivalent vitamin activity. As an essential component of living cells, Vitamin B3 is essential for protein, carbohydrate and fat metabolism. Lonza has been a leading supplier of Vitamin B3 for over 40 years, producing Niacinamide in different forms for a number of consumer markets.
