You may have heard that you should avoid combining niacinamide with vitamin C based on previous research.
Let’s examine the facts and see if niacinamide and vitamin C work together.
Myth busting: Old research, various bloggers, and even some beauty magazines claimed that combining niacinamide and vitamin C was harmful. This is because nicotinic acid is often produced when the two ingredients are heated together. Another limitation is that this only holds true for the most concentrated form of vitamin C (pure ascorbic acid), and not its many other forms (sodium ascorbly phosphate, ascorbyl glucoside and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate)
There’s no need to worry, though; your skincare products are perfectly fine at room temperature.
