Bakuchiol, pronounced buh-koo-chee-all, is the plant-based ingredient that’s been given the nickname of “Natures Retinol”. Bakuchiol has long been loved for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-aging properties! It has been used in Chinese and Indian restorative medicine for years.
It has been found to brighten and even skin tone, boost collagen production, minimize enlarged pores, correct dark spots and acne scars, diminish signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, overall photodamage, and even treats acne. In short, it offers all the same plus points as retinol, but without the horrible side effects (even for the most sensitive skin!) Bakuchiol contains soothing properties which help to comfort skin and minimize issues associated with sensitivity and reactivity.
This serum has 10% strength of the bakuchiol! It comes in a 1 oz white glass dropper bottle. Non-greasy, won't clog pores, and absorbs into the skin extremely fast! We highly recommend pairing this serum with our MSM gel or our creams for maximum skin regenerating performance.
Directions: apply 2-3 drops to clean, toned skin at least 2 times daily & massage in. follow with the MSM gel or moisturizer, facial oil (if applicable), & sunscreen (during the daytime) for best results.
Ingredients: aloe juice*, DMAE, bakuchiol extract*, olive squalane*, hyaluronic acid,
vegetable glycerin, xanthan gum, silver dihydrogen citrate (organic*)
1. Evens Skin Tone
Bakuchiol deeply penetrates the skin to help lessen the appearance of dark spots and areas of hyperpigmentation. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by stimulating collagen production promoting a firmer-looking complexion.
2. Eliminates Skin Dryness
While Retinol tends to dry out skin or cause irritation, Bakuchiol is gentler and isn't known to cause any irritation. It works as an anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant, so it’s ideal for those who suffer from dry, sensitive skin and can’t tolerate a retinol.
3. Speeds Up Cell Regeneration
Bakuchiol dramatically stimulates your skin cell turnover rate. It 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, it helps soothe and heal your skin from the inside out.
4. Suitable For All Skin
By promoting cell turnover and healthy cell regeneration, Bakuchiol helps soothe and heal your skin from the inside out. Being gentle on the skin, mostly anyone can use it. Plus it’s not photo-sensitizing, so it can be safely used in the morning. It can even be used twice a day! If you like the benefits from once a day, you can safely double up.
5. Treats Active Acne
Its powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant effects mean it's very helpful with active breakouts. It’s also able to reduce the activity of 5 alpha-reductase within the sebaceous glands, leading to less clogging and potentially less oil production.
6. It Helps with Pigmentation
It acts at 2 distinct points in the pigmentation pathway. It decreases the activation of melanocytes, the cells that produce our skin’s pigment, and also decreases tyrosinase activity, the rate-limiting step in the production of melanin. That’s some powerful stuff!
7. Powerful Anti-Aging Benefits
It reduces fine lines and wrinkles. This is through an effect on the same genes influenced by retinol, reducing the breakdown of collagen and increasing the manufacture of skin scaffolding proteins.
