How

It's main mechanism of action is to naturally stimulate the production of ceramide. A molecule known for regulating over active cells and also skin elasticity. (read here for more)

Ceramide is also a lipid compound that contributes to the functional and structural integrity of the skin barrier. Niacinamide may help the skin become more resistant to external irritants such as pollution and UV radiation. (exactly how? read here)
