Bakuchiol ingredients are the New, Natural Alternative to Retinol.
Bakuchiol is a vegan skincare ingredient found in the leaves and seeds of the Psoralea corylifolia plant. It is a potent antioxidant, visibly reduces skin discolourations from environmental exposure, and has a pronounced soothing effect on skin. Bakuchiol can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which is why you’re seeing it in more skincare products.
Bakuchiol has its roots in Chinese Medicine, and the latest research shows topical application has unique benefits for all skin types.
Benefits of Bakuchiol
1. Bakuchiol doesn’t cause dryness or irritation.
While retinol and other skincare ingredients may dry out skin or cause irritation, bakuchiol is more gentle and isn't known to cause any irritation. One randomized, double-blind study found that a 0.5 percent bakuchiol cream used for 12 weeks was as effective in decreasing wrinkles and hyperpigmentation as a 0.5 percent retinol cream — and carried fewer side effects like peeling and stinging.
2. Bakuchiol speeds up cell regeneration.
Bakuchiol sends signals to your cells that it's time to amp up collagen production and cell turnover. By promoting cell turnover and healthy cell regeneration, bakuchiol helps soothe and heal your skin from the inside out.
3. Bakuchiol can improves Skin Tone.
Bakuchiol deeply penetrates the skin to help lessen the appearance of dark spots or areas of hyperpigmentation.
