What is Bakuchiol?

Bakuchiol is a key component of skincare products that is becoming increasingly popular right now. This powerful ingredient hydrates the skin deeply, making it instantly smooth and plump, as well as decreases the appearance of roughness, fine lines, and wrinkles at the same time.

Find out what Bakuchiol is exactly and what its benefits are: you will be surprised at how beneficial it is for your skin if you read on and ways to incorporate it into your daily routine effectively.

What is Bakuchiol?

Bakuchiol is an oil that comes from Babchi (Psoralea Corylifolia), a lovely purple flower that grows mainly in India. It is often compared with Retinol because of its similarity, but it is more gentle and does not cause redness or negative reactions, as opposed to Retinoids.

Retinol cannot be used if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, and it is generally an animal-derived product. On the opposite side, Bakuchiol is a natural and vegan ingredient that does not cause photosensitivity like retinol does, meaning you can also go under the sun without having to worry about your skin getting damaged.

Benefits of Bakuchiol

We love multifunctional ingredients and that's why we have included Bakuchiol in most of our formulas. Every skin type can benefit from this ingredient:

1. Helps fight acne.

It has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial actions that can help hold back acne. It helps clear up clogged pores and buildup of impurities, which sometimes results in acne breakouts.

2. Reduces the signs of aging.

Bakuchiol stimulates collagen synthesis, thereby supporting the regeneration of mature skin. Bakuchiol also contributes to a smoother and more even skin tone by stimulating collagen production. It also promotes the regeneration of mature skin by maintaining skin elasticity and cell renewal, meaning it actively reduces fine lines, wrinkles and texture in order to give the skin a youthful appearance.

3. Calms and regenerates skin.

It also has an incredible soothing effect on the skin, which is great for those with sensitive skin. It has been found to help fade dark spots and damage caused by sun exposure.

How to use Bakuchiol

Bakuchiol is generally safe for all skin types, even sensitive skin. It can be used both in the morning and the evening as it does not increase photosensitivity. Bakuchiol can be paired with other hydrating ingredients, like Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin. You can even pair it with Retinol to double the anti-aging action and reduce the potential risks for skin reaction.

So, to summarize, here is why Bakuchiol is a superstar:

  • Pregnancy-safe.
  • Adapted to all skin type.
  • Can be use in the AM and PM.
  • Anti-aging, anti-acne, hydrating and soothing properties.
  • No side-effects like Retinol.
  • 100% Natural and Vegan.
