Niacinamide is a naturally occurring nutrient belonging to the pyridine carboxylic acid family. It is an important form of vitamin B3, an essential nutrient that supports many cellular processes and plays an important role in energy metabolism. Animal and refined grain-based products are fortified with Niacinamide.
It is a water-soluble vitamin that promotes release of energy from foods and enhances proper nervous system functioning. Along with systemic benefits, it also offers a wide range of topical benefits. Also, it is the preferred form of Vitamin B3 for treating Pellagra.

Common applications for niacinamide are in food, feed and beverages, health and personal care and the pharmaceutical industry. Niacinamide has several other health benefits and uses as follows:
HELPFUL FOR SKIN CARE & IN PREVENTING SKIN CANCER
Niacinamide plays an important role in keeping the skin healthy. For this reason, it’s a popular additive in the cosmetic and skincare industry. When applied topically or taken orally as a supplement, niacinamide has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. It has been used to treat skin conditions like acne and rosacea, a facial skin disorder characterized by redness.
t is also a promising supplement which may help in preventing Melanoma which is a serious type of skin cancer that develops in the cells that produce melanin, the pigment that gives your skin its color. Owing to its role in keeping your cells healthy, oral supplements of niacinamide have been shown to enhance DNA repair in UV damaged skin in humans.
THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS / USES
Chronic kidney disease is the progressive loss of kidney function which can cause a harmful buildup of chemicals.
Research suggests that niacinamide may help decrease phosphate levels in people with kidney dysfunction by blocking its absorption. It’s been suggested that niacinamide protects and preserves the beta cells, thereby preventing or delaying the onset of type 1 diabetes in at-risk individuals.

Acetonitrile (ACN) is a highly polar, volatile, colorless liquid with ethereal odor and is the simplest organic nitrile widely used as a solvent.
The nitrile group constitutes active part of the molecule. It participates in various reactions that lead to number of nitrogen containing organic molecules.
A complex salt of undetermined structure, composed of iron, ammonia and citric acid; there are two types of salts – brown and green – containing different amounts of iron
Polyethylene [PE] wax is derived from ethylene through a process called polymerization. Manufacturers alter the polymerization process to get a product with desired qualities. An interesting feature of these waxes is the ability to be heated and cooled without extensive degradation.
Glycidol is a slightly viscous organic
compound that is characterized by presence of an epoxide in beta- position with respect to the alcoholic hydroxyl group. This renders instability to the compound resulting in a rapid decay. Hence the product is stored and transported under refrigerated conditions.
White Oils are manufactured from highly refined base oils and consist of saturated paraffinic and cycloparaffinic hydrocarbons. The refinement process ensures complete removal of aromatics, sulphur and nitrogen compounds resulting in products that are highly stable over time, besides being hydrophobic, colourless, odourless and tasteless.
PTSA or pTsOH or Tosylic acid (TsOH) is white solid organic compound, that is soluble in water, alcohols, and other polar organic solvents. The group is known as the tosyl group and is often abbreviated as Ts or Tos.
