Use Of Niacinamide-based Cosmetics In Kidney Patients?
Hello, ladies who have kidney disease, is it okay to use cosmetics / skincare that contain niacinamide ingredients? Thank you
Hello Ristiani, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Niacinamide is a derivative of vitamin B3 which is often used in topical form because it has anti-itch, antimicrobial effects, dilates blood vessels, reduces facial oil production, and has a skin brightening effect.
Niacinamide in topical form is quite safe for use by people who have kidney disease. However, note that topical use of niacinamide can cause side effects of burning, itching, and redness of the skin.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
