Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does Topical niacinamide help everyone?

A: Topical niacinamide helps 82 out of every 100 users. ( New York College of Medicine University study ) There is not one acne cure in existence that can fix 100% of people 100% of the time…and any company that says or implies that is not telling the truth. The makers of Acnessential pride themselves on telling you the truth. We openly admit our cream won’t help 100% of people 100% of the time. But it will help most people most of the time. This isn’t advertising hype saying that it will help most. The prestigious New York University College of medicine scientifically proved that the formula Acnessential is based on helps 82 out of every 100 people suffering from the embarrassing condition of acne.

This makes it great for fading old acne scars. In addition, elasticity was improved. Still other studies have demonstrated topical niacinamide’s ability to moisturise skin by reducing water loss from skin and increasing its hydration levels.

Q: How safe is it?

A: Acnessential Topical Niacinamide is an exceptionally safe and well-tolerated acne treatment. Niacinamide is a form of the water-soluble B vitamin…Niacin. Like other water soluble vitamins it is not stored in your body for long, so there is no build-up in your system. And because it comes from an essential vitamin, it is safe for long-term use to keep your acne under control. Additionally…because Niacinamide is not an antibiotic, it does not lose effectiveness over time due to the development of bacterial resistance.
