Bakuchiol (noun) pronounced [buh-koo-chee-awl] is one of those what-the-heck-is that ingredients that you see in skincare products. But you know us, we only use the best of the best, all-natural safe ingredients that are good for you AND the planet :)
To clear up the big question mark that is bakuchiol, we present you the breakdown on all things bakuchiol.
WHAT IT IS
Bakuchiol is an all natural, totally gentle and vegan alternative to the infamous retinol. It’s a derivative of the psoralea corylifolia plant, also known as the "babchi" plant, which has been used traditionally in Ayurvedic skincare for centuries.
WHAT IT DOES
We call bakuchiol a retinol alternative for a reason—because it does all of the same things, without any of the irritating side effects. This powerful plant extract increases cell turnover, which in turn stimulates collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots while promoting youthful, radiant, bouncy skin. Bakuchiol is also know to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which is always a win in skincare.
WHO ITS FOR
This plant-based extract is gentle enough to use on all skin types, including sensitive! If you’re feeling like you have dull, dehydrated, uneven or textured skin, add a little bakuchiol to your routine. Use it in the evening and wake up refresh and rejuvenated!
