Niacinamide Topical Vs Oral Clarification


Jun 28, 2019
So I've found niacinamide powder and on the package it says that it's for creams, lotions, toners and it shouldn't be ingested.
Ingredients: niacinamide.

I've made a skin lotion with it, using aloe vera and vitamin E.
But I also want to try it internally. Is that ok? Or are there two substances, niacinamide for internal use and niacinamide for external use? :)

Niacinamide can be used both topical and oral. But purity should be focused, maybe find a brand that is targeted for oral use?

I also question the use of fats in a Niacinamide cream, a water soluble substance.

I have noticed that a lotion containing aloe vera, niacinamide, olive oil, vitamin E is common, with niacinamide being soluble in aloe vera and vitamin E in olive oil .
You just have to shake well before using it.
