Bakuchiol, Plant-Based for Fresh, Healthy Skin


Bakuchiol is an antioxidant found in the seeds of the plant psoralea corylifolia, It has a long history in medicine for its healing properties, including soothing rashes, calming redness, and healing cuts. Clinical studies have confirmed that bakuchiol is a true retinol-like functional compound without the negative effects of retinol.
In other words, bakuchiol is a potential game-changer for those who struggle with sensitive or reactive skin and aren’t confident in the risk-to-reward ratio of retinol.

First, a quick refresher on retinol: A member of the retinoid family, which includes all vitamin A derivatives, it’s considered a Holy Grail ingredient for all things anti-aging and anti-acne.But a small percentage of retinol users contract a red, scaly, itchy rash known as retinoid dermatitis.

Bakuchiol doesn’t function in quite the same way that retinol does. Bakuchiol is just one of the many potential alternatives being studied, but it’s also the only botanical extract thus far that’s shown real, clinically-proven results similar to that of retinol — stimulating collagen production, strengthening the skin’s foundation, and minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, without the risk of irritation.
