Also known as vitamin B3 and nicotinamide, niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that works with the natural substances in your skin to help visibly minimize enlarged pores, tighten lax or stretched out pores, improve uneven skin tone, soften fine lines and wrinkles, diminish dullness, and strengthen a weakened skin barrier.

How to use it
Morning & Night
Double Cleanse: Use as the second step in your ritual after Demigod. Shake the bottle prior to each use and pump the luxurious foam into hand and lather skin. Rinse off with warm water. Deuxième can also be used as a stand-alone cleanser. Multiuse: For a quick mask for luminosity, allow the foam to melt into skin for 5 min, then rinse with warm water.
Founder Dahlia's Tip
The natural ecosystem of the skin is slightly acidic (between pH 4.0-5.5). Skin-loving, native bacteria thrive in this environment while harmful pathogens multiply in alkalinity. Traditional cleansers are often alkaline. This breaks the acid mantle, wipes out beneficial bacteria and can allow an easy pathway for invader bacteria and pollution to spill into the deeper layers of skin where damage and aging can occur.
"I love how clean my skin feels after while still super soft and smooth."
