sopretty You can buy niacinamide capsules from www.nowfoods.com When I was searching, they had the cheapest price. Be sure to buy the 500 mg. capsules.

do a little test to make sure the powder is completely water soluable then just mix it into any water based cream. i use aloe vera/emu oil combination (but i also made the combo emulsified).

Somab Hey Guys, i've just bought me some niacinamide capsules from the Vitamin Shop, hopefully this is the one y'all use. Hoping that will give me some good results. I am still fighting with my black spots. Peace

April 25th, 2007 10:15 PM

lafranšaise Hi Somab, no i did not mix my niacinamide with water. It's weird coz i put like 10 capsules!!But u gotta shake it well. My man had to shake mine lol..
