Embrace Ageless Beauty with Bakuchiol

Retinol, a vitamin A derivative is well known for its anti-aging properties, as it helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. However, it's also notorious for causing irritation to sensitive skin.

If you’re in search of a natural, plant-based Retinol alternative to nurture your complexion - look no further than Bakuchiol.

What is Bakuchiol?

Bakuchiol is a remarkable natural skincare ingredient harvested from the seeds of the Babchi plant (Psoralea corylifolia), a gift from India's enriched natives. Often referred to as a natural retinol alternative, Bakuchiol exhibits properties with various similarities, such as anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation benefits



The Benefits of Bakuchiol

      1. Gentle on the Skin (Suitable for Sensitive Skin)

One of Bakuchiol's most well-known properties is its gentleness on the skin, making it suitable for even the most delicate skin types. Unlike retinol, which can sometimes lead to redness, peeling, and sensitivity, Bakuchiol offers a gentle touch in your skincare ritual.

2. Can Be Used Daily

Due to its gentle formula, Bakuchiol is suitable for daily use. Thanks to its gentle composition, you can apply during the day as well as night.

3. Similar Results as Retinol

    • ◦  Smooths Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Bakuchiol gently smooths fine lines, helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, revealing a more youthful glow.

    • ◦  Even Skin Tone

If you have concerns with hyperpigmentation or sunspots, Bakuchiol can help to even your skin tone.

    • ◦  Brighten Skin

Bakuchiol lovingly reawakens your skin, leaving it looking refreshed, vibrant, and full of life.

    • ◦  Improve Firmness

Bakuchiol helps to stimulate blood circulation, which helps to increase elasticity in the skin so that it appears firmer.

    • ◦  Fights Acne

Inflammation is one of the root causes of acne. According to a study conducted by Ratan K.Chaudhuri, Bakuchiol is suggested to assist in the management of acne-affected skin. It can do this in several ways, one is reducing excessive oil production and another is acting as an anti-microbial. Relieving the skin of obstructed pores and bacterial growth.


Bakuchiol vs Retinol

1. Gentleness:

While both compounds offer similar benefits, Bakuchiol is typically gentler on the skin, making it a preferred choice for those with sensitive skin.

2. Natural vs. Synthetic:

Bakuchiol is a natural alternative, which may appeal to those looking for plant-based skincare solutions. On the other hand, while Retinol can be derived from animal sources, many cosmetic retinols are synthesized in labs.

3. Pregnancy & Breastfeeding:

Some dermatologists advise against using Retinol during pregnancy and breastfeeding. However, always consult with a healthcare provider about using any product during these times.
