A skincare duo containing Elixir Cosmeceuticals two favourite products.  

The products are suitable for all skin conditions and age groups. Its’s perfect for those who prefer a basic, yet active skincare program, or as a base for a more advanced skincare program.

The products will provide you with a more even skin tone, rejuvenated skin, and a healthier skin barrier.

Niactil Advanced Pro
A moisturising and strengthening gel-crem with gentle exfoliating properties.

It contains 4 % Niacinamide and 10 % Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA). It gently exfoliates, promote skin renewal, moisture and a more even skin tone. Perfect combination with all Elixir products, and a super “start-up” product for those who are new to Elixir.  

For youthful skin it can be used by itself day and night, but for especially dry skin conditions, combine with Niactil 4% or Hydractil Lite Cream.

Aged skin often requires anti-aging and even more active ingredients, and Niactil Advanced Pro should therefore be combined with Retinext- and/or Hydractil-products, and sun protection for sufficient nourishment and care.

Explaining the active ingredients?
Polyhydroxy Acid, also called PHA-acids, can be considered a second generation of AHAs. The main difference is the size of the molecule. PHAs have a larger molecule and therefore don’t penetrate as deeply as an AHA when applied to the skin. This make PHAs less irritating and better for sensitive skin. The PHAs can lead to brighter, smoother, more hydrated skin, and provide an overall enhanced glow.

The most commonly used PHAs in cosmetics are Gluconolactone and Lactobionic Acid. Gluonolactone has several multitasking properties, which is why we have included it in Niactil Advnaced Pro.  

Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3, with documented properties which strengthen the skin barrier, improve elasticity and curb redness, impurities, and inflammations. Vitamin B3 is an important active ingredient as it builds proteins in the skin, and better the delivery of energy to the cells. When we age, the natural levels of vitamin B3 drops, and the cells’ ability to repair and renew aggravates.


1. Improved skin barrier function
Strengthens the skin surface, which proves particularly suitable for those with sensitive skin and therefore cannot tolerate glycolic acid and other more active products. 

2. Improve pigmentation
Improve hyperpigmentation by 10-30% after continous use for 12 weeks. Helpfull in lightening dark spots and uneven skin tone by 30%.

3. Provide smoother skin texture
Smoother and softer skin – improved by 30-60% after 12 weeks.

4. Effective acne treatment
Studies show that 10-14% concentration of PHA, provides similar effects as 5% Benzoylperoksid, but with fewer side effects. PHAs are proven less irritating compared to AHAs and can therefore be combined with Tretinoin and Retinols. There’s also a lower risk associated with inflammatory acne.

5. Improve signs of aging
Reduces visible signe of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines, after 12 weeks.

6. Increase skin thickness
Promotes the formation of lipids and collagen, which strengthens the skin’s barrier function.

7. Reduce oily skin
Reduces fat secretion from the sebaceous glands.

8. Improves skin elastisity
Improves the skin’s elasticity by 10,2% after 12 weeks.

9. Antioxidants
Antioxidants inhibit oxidation, as well as oxidation-promoting metals. It also reduces the production of free radicals.

10. UV-rays
As opposed to glycolic acid, it does not promote the skin’s sensitivity to UV-rays.

We received this message from a costumers experience with Niactil 4%:
For 20 years, I’ve been prescribed Hydrocortisone and topical steroids to treat facial redness. Despite my scepticism, my partner managed to persuade me to try out Niactil 4%. I really didn’t believe my own eyes when I experienced visible results in a short amount of time. For the last two months, Hydrocortisone and topical steroids hasn’t been necessary
