A single product to even out your skin tone without any of the irritation? That’s what Now And After aimed to do with their Niacinamide 10% with Astaxanthin Concentrate Ampoule. Lucky for us, they went far beyond their initial skincare development goals - starting with the not-so-secret main ingredient niacinamide, otherwise known as Vitamin B3.
Dermatologists have been recommending niacinamide for years to help patients improve their epidermal barrier function, decrease yellowing of the skin, blotchiness, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. These days the ingredient has found itself at the forefront of skincare community trends as a result of its effectiveness and perfectly neutral PH. This means it’s a great addition to any skincare routine regardless of skin type, making it a natural starting point for creating an irritation-free, skin tone correcting ampoule.
Normally, niacinamide is powerful enough on its own but Now And After took it a step further by adding in astaxanthin (the red bubbles). This cutting-edge ingredient is taking off thanks to its super antioxidizing properties. Recent studies have shown it to increase moisture, improve skin texture, and reduce skin wrinkle depth.
Now And After’s approach of forsaking ad spending to instead assign a larger budget to quality ingredients shines through with this ampoule. The combination of niacinamide and astaxanthin is already powerful, but the addition of bitter almond kernel oil and nutrition-packed natural leaf extracts make this ampoule the complete package. It gives your skin everything it needs to stay looking healthy, smooth, young, and protected.
