The science of healthy skin, nails and hair.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and the most active, powerful beholder of all is yourself. Wanting healthier, more beautiful skin, nails, and hair can sometimes mean experimenting with cosmetic or natural products of all shapes and sizes, combinations, and with the help of supplements too. Whether those methods all work are questionable in the market we have today, but what we are sure of is the science behind the beauty of healthy skin, nails, and hair.

How Niacin (Vitamin B3) Promotes Healthier Skin

Niacin is an essential nutrient that can help your skin thrive. It’s been found to promote the production of collagen and elastin, which means smoother, less wrinkled skin. Niacin also stops melanin from rising through the cells of your dermis, so you’ll have less dark spots and a brighter, more even skin tone. If you’re struggling with acne, niacin can help to reduce inflammation. This stops the cycle of acne from continuing, when inflammation is subdued, your pores can avoid the clogging that’s usually followed by the growth of bacteria and eventually a pimple.

Selenium for Healthier Hair & Nails

The right amount of the essential nutrient and antioxidant selenium can promote healthier hair in different ways. For starters, antioxidant enzymes found in selenium help to prevent damage to hair follicles from external factors like UV and pollution. It also encourages hair growth by helping the body convert the right proteins to stimulate growth. Aside from split ends, selenium also supports healthier nails because of the role it plays with proteins.

Allure CBD Capsules with Niacin and Selenium

As part of our brand new micro-encapsulated range we’ve formulated a blend of niacin, selenium, and 5mg of full-spectrum CBD to contribute to the maintenance of healthy skin, nails, and hair. Thanks to our patent, the blend is 3 times the normal bio-availability you’d experience with taking an oily tincture, meaning you’ll absorb the contents faster. It’s free from sugar, added colourants, and flavours. We’re also proudly friendly for vegans and vegetarians.
