Ready for a lesson in my second favourite b-word? 

Get hyped for the real Queen B. She gives your skin luminosity. Introducing, vitamin B.

Introducing vitamin B

Vitamin B is used so often in skincare because it’s a hard-working all-rounder. Just like that one makeup brush you use for everything. #letsbefrank

You’ve probably seen both vitamin B3 and vitamin B5 in your skincare ingredients. But other than sounding like Bananas in Pyjamas, what’s the difference?

Vitamin B3, also known as niacinamide

Famous for:

  • Controlling sebum production.
  • Stimulating ceramide production for a healthy skin barrier.
  • Soothing inflammation.

What you’ll notice:

  • Enlarged pores look smaller.
  • The word “dull” leaves your vocabulary.
  • Less redness (here for my babes with acne, eczema, and rosacea).

Where to find me?

In my Niacinamide Era Kit to gently improve texture and fight free-radicals.

In my Clearing Face Wash for oily, hormonal skin that wants to be clear.

In my Caffeinated Hair Mask to get to the root of stronger, nourished hair. 

Vitamin B5, also known as panthenol

Famous for:

  • Improving moisture retention.
  • Healing properties.
  • Soothing redness and inflammation.

What you’ll notice:

  • Plump, glowy skin. Your crush might call you “luminous”.
  • That pimple you picked forgives you and heals faster.
  • Your itchy and damaged skin feels better.

Where to find me? 

In my Nourishing Body Wash for sensitive babes who want to feel soft and clean. 

In Clearing Body Wash to fight body acne while soothing, not stripping.

Remember, babe. You can always find juicy ingredient details in my ingredient glossary. Happy learning.
