- Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid Together = Super Skin Benefits!

The combination of niacinamide and hyaluronic acid would be particularly suitable for dry or acne-prone skin.

100% NIACINAMIDE POWDER: Offers the most direct topical exposure of Niacinamide to target visible shine, enlarged pores and irregular skin texture. This powder format offers a DIY experience that allows one to personalize their usage based on their preference. In comparison to the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% solution, this powder format offers the user versatility in combining the benefits of Niacinamide with the benefits of other non-conflicting technologies (such as Peptide serums) to address multiple skin concerns at once.
In its truest form, Niacinamide is readily water-soluble and dissolves in water-based products, such as serums and creams, with ease. The Ordinary’s 100% Niacinamide Powder can be mixed into any non-conflicting, water-based treatment, provided that the pH of the base is between 5.1 and 7.0.
HYALURONIC ACID (ph 6.00-7.50): The innovative formula features low, medium and high molecular weight HA to deliver moisture to the various layers of the skin for deep, lasting hydration. A next-generation cross polymer with a combined concentration of 2% allows for multi-depth delivery in a refreshing oil-free formula. Perfect for using before your moisturizer to give your skin a super-hydrated and plumped appearance.
HOW TO USE: Mix a quarter scoop of the spoon provided with Hyaluronic Acid treatment in the palm of your hand and apply to the face in the morning and/or evening.
Given the powder format of the product, one may wonder how much Niacinamide is in the resulting mixture. From a theoretical standpoint, if ¼ scoop of the powder consists approximately of 0.05g Niacinamide, then when mixed with 4 drops of the selected base, the resulting mixture is estimated to yield a 10-15% concentration of Niacinamide.
Avoid contact with eyes, if contact occurs rinse thoroughly with water. Wash hands after handling. Do not mix with formulations with a pH of 5 or lower.
If irritation occurs, rinse off, cease use, and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised.
