 Product FAQ

How does The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% work?

Niacinamide, otherwise known as Vitamin B3, and Zinc are naturally occurring substances in the body. These ingredients are useful in a skincare routine to decongest skin and balance sebum levels. The combination of these two potent ingredients helps to battle blemishes by reducing bacteria on the skin, regulating oil production, and minimising the appearance of pores.

Niacinamide improves the skin’s moisture-retention abilities whilst boosting the skin’s natural defense system. Zinc repairs skin damaged by acne and congestion.

The high concentrations of both Niacinamide and Zinc in this powerful serum from The Ordinary help to quickly clear up complexions and calm any breakouts.

 Who is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% suitable for?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is best for those with oily and acne-prone skin. This healing serum can help reduce the severity and frequency of breakouts whilst balancing oil levels.

What is the difference between The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and a retinol or salicylic acid treatment for treating acne?

Although The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% contains a combination of powerful ingredients, it can help clear congested skin more gently than both retinol and salicylic acid can. Those with sensitive skin should be cautious when applying retinol and salicylic acid, as they can cause irritation and sensitivity. The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% does not come with these same potential side effects.

Retinol and salicylic acid work as peels on the skin, removing a layer of damaged and acne-prone skin cells to reveal a fresher and clearer complexion below. These two ingredients should be used sparingly and introduced into a skincare routine slowly. The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% does not work in the same way, as it simply decongests skin and prevents future breakouts.

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for acne?
The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is an excellent treatment product for clearing up acne, as the serum helps to reduce the severity and frequency of breakouts by banishing blemish-forming bacteria. Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% also helps to balance sebum production and minimise enlarged pores. All of these actions can dramatically improve the appearance of acne-prone skin. 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for scarring and pigmentation?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% can assist in reducing the appearance and severity of scarring and pigmentation. To help with scarring and pigmentation, Niacinamide is best used in a skincare routine alongside vitamin C and retinol.

 Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for rosacea?
Rosacea most commonly affects dry and dehydrated skin, so this serum is not recommended as a rosacea treatment. However, if you have an oily or congested complexion that is prone to rosacea, this product can be used to help balance sebum levels.

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% comedogenic?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% has been developed to help clear congested skin and is non-comedogenic. It is also oil-free, vegan, and cruelty-free.

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for wrinkles?
The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% has not been designed to improve ageing skin or wrinkles.

How to Use

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a powerful water-based serum that should be introduced carefully into a skincare routine.

It should be used only once daily, morning or night, and applied before moisturiser and oil treatments.

If you are also using a Vitamin-C-based serum, the Niacinamide and Zinc serum should be applied at the opposite time of day.

So if you use vitamin C in the morning, use Niacinamide and Zinc in the evening, as the two can interact negatively with each other.
