Bonnie Brightening B3 Apple Essence uses a clinically-proven combination of niacinamide (vitamin B3) and n-acetyl glucosamine (NAG) that helps reduce hyperpigmentation from acne and other blemishes. Cinnamon extract plus a stable derivative of vitamin C aids this effort and increases skin's overall luminosity. Apple essence adds a sweet aroma plus vitamins and minerals for overall skin health.
The Science: In an 8-week, double-blind, split-face clinical test, topical 2% NAG reduced the appearance of facial hyperpigmentation. In a second clinical study involving the topical combination of 2% NAG with 4% niacinamide, the effect on hyperpigmentation was greater.
