Simultaneously you receive plumping, hydrating, wrinkle eradicating, hyper-pigmentation deleting, collagen building “turn back the clock” ingredients. These ingredients do NOT aggravate blemish prone skin conditions but actually clear them up. Sulfur penetrates and creates elasticity while 3.5% niacinamide takes the red out and prevents inflammation that underlies most troubled skin issues. 20% vitamin C assists in repairing micro scarring, reverses sun damage, and rapidly creates smooth supple glowing skin.
Retinol and salicylic acid unclog pores, speed cellular turnover, and undo the signs of ageing skin.
Beta hydroxy acids (salicylic acid): Salicylic acid removes dead skin and can improve the texture and color of sun-damaged skin. It penetrates oil-laden hair follicle openings and, as a result, also helps with acne.
“In many cases, salicylic acid can be less irritating than skin care products containing alpha-hydroxy acids,” explains Dr. Bergfeld. “But they provide similar improvement in skin texture and color.”
Niacinamide is the biologically active form of niacin, Vitamin B3. Niacinamide increases the rate of skin exfoliation and increases moisture barrier repair. Studies have shown it to be useful in increasing synthesis of collagen and lipids, inhibiting the transfer of melanosomes and decreasing inflammation. "Niacinamide is one of the vitamins that I believe we'll hear more and more about in the coming years. Already, topical 4% niacinamide has been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of papular and pustular acne in a 4% gel, as well as the improvement of skin cancer and its anti-tumor characteristics," Dr. Draelos.

Research shows that B3 improves the function of the skin and helps to prevent many of the signs of premature aging. Smooths wrinkles, boosts skin elasticity, reduces sallowness, fades age spots and discolorations and helps to fight acne.
Niacinamide has diverse benefits for the skin, ranging from hydrating, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helping to reduce oiliness, and clarifying and balancing skin.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
• Smoothes wrinkles
• Reduces sallowness
• Boosts the skin's elasticity
• Fade age spots and other discolorations (A safe alternative to hydroquinone, a chemical skin lightener that may cause cancer)
• Fights Acne
Serums go a step further from moisturizers in overall richness and nutrients. A treatment serum is a great choice for getting added nutrients deep into the skin; its molecule size is much smaller than a lotion or regular moisturizer.
Whether the goal is fighting wrinkles and age spots or eradicating stubborn acne, cosmetic manufacturers are turning to an old vitamin that seems to be learning new skin care tricks.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), is popping up in moisturizers, eye creams, anti-aging serums, and acne treatments, as scientists continue to unlock this nutrient's beauty benefits.
What It Does
Vitamin B3 is no stranger to dermatologists, who have known about niacinamide's acne-fighting ability for years. When 198 people with severe acne were given a proprietary formula containing 750 mg of niacinamide, 79 percent experienced a significant improvement in skin lesions after eight weeks. In fact, niacinamide seemed to work just as well as a popular antibiotic to reduce acne. But niacinamide isn't just reserved for the young.
Applying this nutrient to the skin can help prevent many of the signs of premature aging. A growing number of studies show that niacinamide improves the function of the epidermis, the skin's outer layer.
Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, has been used topically for rosacea. It is thought to improve the skin barrier, improve the skin’s moisture level, and reduce inflammation. One study looked at a niacinamide-containing facial moisturizer (applied twice daily) or a placebo moisturizer in 50 people with rosacea. After four weeks, the niacinamide-containing moisturizer was found to improve the skin barrier.
In one clinical trial, 50 women used a moisturizer containing 5 percent niacinamide on one side of the face and a placebo cream on the other. After 12 weeks, the niacinamide side showed less wrinkling and a significant reduction in age spots compared to the placebo side.
Unlike many cosmeceutical ingredients, there is a great deal of research that supports the use of topical niacinamide. Studies have shown its usefulness in increasing synthesis of collagen and lipids, inhibiting the transfer of melanosomes, and decreasing inflammation. As a precursor to niacin, it may even play a role in preventing skin cancer.
Hyperpigmentation also seems to respond to topical niacinamide. In a poster presented at the 2001 annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology, niacinamide was shown to decrease melanosome transfer to keratinocytes. In addition, a poster at the 2002 annual meeting of the AAD demonstrated that moisturizers containing 2% and 5% concentrations of niacinamide resulted in a clinically detectable decrease in facial pigmentation.
The mechanism by which niacinamide affects inflammation is unclear, but it has been shown to inhibit mast cell histamine release, neutrophil chemotaxis, and release of inflammatory mediators. It has also reduced the triglyceride and diglyceride content of sebum, resulting in less facial oil. Clinical trials have demonstrated the efficacy of topical niacinamide in treating inflammatory acne and rosacea in unrelated trials by Dr. Shalita, Dr. Zoe Draelos, and others.
Is well known and long documented antioxidant that protects the surface of the skin from free radicals that can damage the skin. Aids in stabilizing and generation of collagen. Stimulates collagen synthesis, production of stable collagen and triggers the production of enzymes that is necessary for the cross linking of collagen molecule which in turn gives better tissue strength.
1. Improves the appearance of skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
2. May protect and lessen the effects of sunburns.
4. Protects cells from free-radicals
5. Protects the skin cell from damage due to ultraviolet light
Once Vitamin C penetrates the skin, it stays there for up to 72 hours. This means that a properly formulated topical vitamin-C product can have a long lasting effect in the skin.
Fast acting, results can sometimes be seen in just a few days or weeks of use. Improvement in skin texture and skin tone is easily noticeable after a short time period of use. Depressed scars may take several months to be normalized.
Directions: Apply a small amount cleansed & toned face, neck & décolleté areas. AVOID EYE AREA. USE ONLY AT NIGHT. Allow time to absorb prior to moisturizer application. For optimal results, follow the JES Organics complete six step skin care program.
Note: Use only as directed. If irritation persists, discontinue use & consult a physician. Prior to sun exposure, use a physical or non-toxic sunscreen. Avoid sunburn. Retinol use should be of limited frequency & duration. Don’t use products containing Retinol if you are pregnant or nursing.
