Hi, I’m a sole trader in a beauty salon in Balwyn North, and Skinstitut stockist and here’s a blog on one of the new skincare serums:

Skinstitut 10% Niacinamide Power Serum is an efficient all-rounder. This high-performance serum heroes Niacinamide to calm, repair, and protect skin while addressing the signs of ageing including sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles.


  • Strengthens the lipid barrier for improved moisture retention and skin resilience, while reducing the signs of external ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation.
  • Soothes inflammation and reduces redness from inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and contact dermatitis.
  • Helps to ease acne by improving barrier function of the epidermis, which creates a healthy skin microbiome and prevents bacterial irritants, while reducing pore appearance and regulating oil production.
  • Protects against oxidative damage and helps defend against environmental stressors like sunlight, pollution, and toxins

Key Ingredients

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)

Hydrates and protects skin, minimising the appearance of pores. Helps neutralise environmental aggressors that can cause premature ageing. Improves skin texture, tone and helps to restore the natural balance of your skin.

Probiotic Complex

This complex has a powerful, soothing effect on skin. It helps strengthen skin against environmental aggressors, balance its natural microbiome, and relieve signs of irritation.

Cucumber Seed Oil

Moisture binding and soothing, this organic oil is rich in amino acids that strengthen the skin’s barrier function and prevent hydration loss.

Aloe Vera

Known to have anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory and soothing abilities that help calm and nourish sensitive and inflamed skin.


10% Niacinamide Power Serum is ultra-compatible, so it can be used alongside other actives like Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, AHAs and Retinol. If you use multiple actives or serums in your skincare routine, we recommend using 10% Niacinamide Power Serum towards the end of your routine before moisturising and after other actives, so it doesn’t interfere with absorption.

How To Use

Morning and evening, apply 2 pumps and press into freshly cleansed skin. Massage until fully absorbed and then follow with Eye Cream and Moisturiser (plus SPF in the morning). For oily or acne prone skin, we suggest Moisture Defence Oily or if you’re after additional barrier repair, we love Expert Restore Niacinamide Replenishing Cream.

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is a great ingredient for sensitive, ageing and acne-prone skin. Soothing the skin and reducing redness, it assists with hydration and helps regulate oil flow. When layered together with Retinol, there’s a direct compensation benefit: Retinol stimulates the skin while Niacinamide helps strengthen. Skinstitut Retinol Serum would be a great option here. It’s not a super high concentration, so isn’t going to be irritating. Apply Retinol Serum at night, before 10% Niacinamide Power Serum, so you can maximise the benefits.

If you’re on the sensitive side, Rejuvenate 15 Serum is a great pairing with 10% Niacinamide Power Serum, to further fortify skin and provide additional anti-ageing benefits. The two serums are both lightweight and watery, so you can apply either one first, depending on your primary skin goal.
