Understanding Bakuchiol: The Gentle Alternative to Retinol

Bakuchiol, A natural, plant-based ingredient hails from the seeds and leaves of the Psoralea corylifolia, or "Babchi" plant, which has been used for centuries in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine.

What makes Bakuchiol stand out?

Simply put, it's been fondly named "Nature's Retinol," and with good reason. Bakuchiol mimics the benefits of retinol. But unlike retinol, Bakuchiol accomplishes all this without any associated harshness or irritation, making it an ideal choice for all skin types, even the most sensitive ones.

Benefits of Bakuchiol

Skin Brightening Effects: Regular use of Bakuchiol leads to an improved skin tone, reducing hyperpigmentation and giving your skin a healthy, youthful glow.

Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory: Its antioxidant properties help protect the skin from environmental stressors, while its anti-inflammatory benefits help calm the skin, reducing redness and inflammation.
