Niacinamide reduces water loss and the drying effects of retinol by increasing the synthesis of ceramides and keratinocyte differentiation in the s.corneum (2000 Tanno). Retinol can double the thickness of the epidermis from 60 to 120 micron in 7 days (2017 Shao), and increase the amount of fibrous tissue in the hypodermis 2-5x after 8 weeks (2000 Franchimont). Both help even skin tone and prevent blemishes.
Night 1.0Balance & RestoreVitamin ABC Lotion
Triple stabilized 0.25% retinol & 3% niacinamide, natural forms of Vitamin A and B, form a biochemical crime-fighting duo, effectively targeting wrinkles, blemishes and uneven skin tone, giving you peachy, visibly younger-looking skin in 1 to 2 weeks. Niacinamide reduces the drying effects of retinol by stimulating lipid synthesis, keeping your skin smooth and firm. Keep in mind it's not fast acting nor suitable as a acne spot treatment with it's preventive action.

Custom Analytics, a FDA registered lab, verifies the retinol concentration of each batch of Night. Only pure retinol has been extensively studied at ~10 mg/week or 20 pumps of Night. Avoid encapsulated or retinol derivatives (we know palmitate is less effective) that will make dosing and efficacy guesswork.
