Bakuchiol is a 100% natural active ingredient obtained from the babchi seeds (psoralea corylifolia plant). Described as the true alternative to retinol, it presents striking resemblances with the performances of retinoids but is much gentler with the skin.
Bakuchiol, a gentle alternative to retinol, can be used for all types of skin: dry, oily or sensitive. Day & Night! Whether you want to maintain youthful skin or find an efficient solution for a radiant acne-free skin, Bakuchiol is the active ingredient you want to be looking for.
Bakuchiol is a retinol-alternative. It stimulates key anti-aging genes similarly as retinol, for instance retinoid binding and metabolizing genes. It is also an antioxidant, a stimulator of collagens and an inhibitor of lipo-peroxidation.
Bakuchiol is not retinol, nor a retinoid compound. The chemically structure is different. However, it is considered as a retinol alternative as it functions as a retinol without the drawbacks. Bakuchiol can be used during the day and is better tolerated by the skin.
SENSITIVE SKIN? IT’S A MATCH!
Bakuchiol is an option for both protective and restorative anti-aging, therefore it can be used to fight the first signs of aging but also to improve the quality of the skin already photodamaged.
In a clinical study, 16 volunteers, age 41 to 60, tested a lotion containing 1% of Bakuchiol. After 12 weeks, there was significant improvement in lines and wrinkles (-20% wrinkle depth), pigmentation, elasticity, firmness, and overall photo-damage, with no irritating effect on skin.
The Bakuchiol has been clinically proven to be more efficient that salicylic acid and to reduce acne by 48% after 6 weeks. It could be an ally for both teenagers with sensitive skin but also adults with oily skin.
No, Bakuchiol is photostable, it can also be
used during the day!
