Our Niacinamide & Retinol Alternatives

Our Niacinamide & Retinol Alternatives

We want to speak to some industry buzz terms—explain what they do—and share how we choose (and blend) irritation-free, plant-powered alternatives that serve your skin, and your body.

Let’s start with niacinamide and retinol. 

Niacinamide | Vitamin B3

Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3 known to brighten, hydrate and boost skin cell turnover; all restorative qualities to reduce the visible signs of aging. 

Unfortunately, irritation is common with this ingredient.

The good news is, there are niacinamide alternatives that are sensitive skin friendly. Read on! 

Retinol | Vitamin A

A product made with Vitamin A, known as retinol, or retinoids, depending on their strength of formulation.

Many reach for retinols to motivate skin cells to regenerate, and to inspire collagen production and youthful looks. 

As with niacinamide, retinol is a known irritant and not favored for pregnant women.

Luckily, we have you covered with our plant-powered retinol alternative

KORA Organics Niacinamide + Retinol Alternatives

We opt for healthier ingredients that answer your every skin need, sans the sensitivity, while being Certified Organic—and giving you the results that you seek. An all-round win.

We talk why our alternative ingredients do the same thing—gently and effectively.  

These are just a few:  

Vitamin C | Brightening + Collagen Enhancing

Found in plenty in our Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum and Berry Bright Vitamin C Serum

This is an anti aging must-have known to help brighten the skin, inspire collagen and elastin production, protect against free radical damage, even skin tone and revise pigmentation and dark spots. 

We choose the power of Ascorbyl Glucoside (stabilized Vitamin C) and Vitamin-C rich natural extracts such as Kakadu Plum, Acerola Cherry, Noni Extract as a daily injection of vitamins and antioxidant protection.  

Turmeric | Brightening + Protecting

Featured in our Turmeric Glow Foaming Cleanser, Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask, and our Turmeric Glow Moisturizer

We revere this power antioxidant for its innate brightening and skin tone balancing qualities. It has the ability to nurture all skin types without irritation with natural protection qualities against environment stressors. 

We choose Turmeric to awaken and revitalize the skin to keep aging at bay.

Sodium Hyaluronate | Hydration + Elasticity

This unsung hero features in numerous products. Turmeric Glow Moisturizer, Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum, Noni Night AHA Resurfacing Serum and Noni Glow Sleeping Mask to name a few. 

It’s a natural water-soluble form of Hyaluronic Acid known to penetrate deeper in the skin due to its lower molecular size. It’s famed for making skin soft and supple. 

We choose this powerful humectant to help attract and retain moisture and to plump the skin. Assisting in improving elasticity, reducing visible fine lines and wrinkles, and reinforcing the skin’s barrier.

Silver Ear Mushroom | Hydrating + Plumping

Found in our Milky Mushroom Gentle Cleansing Oil and Noni Glow Sleeping Mask

This gorgeously gentle and effective ingredient is chosen for its moisture retention quality.

We choose this natural moisture-binding ingredient for deep hydration to help visibly plump your skin and motivate elasticity—all of which are responsible for a youthful glow!  

Rosehip | Vitamin A + B Mimic

A prized ingredient in our oils, Turmeric Glow Moisturizer, Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask, Berry Bright Vitamin C Eye Cream. (And many more!)

Rosehip innately mimics the benefits that niacinamide gives, to boost skin turnover without sensitivity. It’s an abundance of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, Omega 3 & 6, Vitamins A & C with anti-inflammatory properties too. 

We choose this star ingredient to assist in softening the visual effects of sun damage, pigmentation, scarring and environmental stressors. 

Kahai Oil | Natural Retinol

At home in our Noni Radiant Eye Oil, Kahai Oil contains high contents of Vitamins, A, E, F—with Vitamin A being a natural source of retinol. 

The focus of this power oil is to smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

We choose this rich antioxidant also to nourish and soften the skin with ease.  

Beauty In The Blend

Just like eating a balanced diet, we choose a blend of highly nutritious vitamins and antioxidants in our skincare. 

The powerful blend of retinol-like ingredients in our new Plant Stem Cell Retinol Alternative Serum can also mimic niacinamide-like results: 

One | Acai Stem Cells

Our antioxidant abundant stem cell skincare harvested from Acai berries offers true nourishment and antioxidant protection from free radical damage and prevents premature aging of the skin. 

Two | Bakuchiol

This innovative and natural retinol alternative is loved to firm, strengthen, improve and smooth fine lines and wrinkles—for true hydration and regeneration. 

Bakuchiol KORA Organics New Retinol Alternative Serum

Three| Alfalfa 

A natural retinol alternative to visibly improve the signs of aging and smooth out rough, damaged skin without irritation. 

Let’s talk about the power blend of Rosehip and Acai stem cells, alone. 

Vitamins A, C & E (Rosehip) fuse with Ferulic Acid (Acai stem cells) to enhance photo-protection for better hydration and noticeable anti aging results. Which are benefits of niacinamide!

When we blend all the above in our efficacious blends—you get the power of organics—without the irritation! 

With love, 
KORA Organics
