Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Moisturizing Treatment is a best selling beauty product on Amazon.com. It supposedly “doubles skin’s surface cell regeneration rate vs. untreated skin.” Is this too good to be true? Let’s look at the label to find out.

As with many P&G products, this is a complex formula with almost 50 different ingredients. Most of them form the cream base others are just for show. But the product does contains a number of good moisturizing agents (mostly silicone derivatives) and one “magic” ingredient: Niacinamide.

Niacinamide (aka nicotinamide) is a type of vitamin B3 which, according to the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology Volume 3, Issue 2, pages 88–93, April 2004, provides the following benefits when applied topically:

  • Hydrates by reducing transepidermal water loss
  • Increases protein synthesis
  • Stimluates ceramide product
  • Speeds up differentiation of keratinocytes
  • Smoothes out wrinkles
