INCI: Bakuchiol

Bakuchiol is a plant-derived skincare ingredient, extracted from the Bakuchi (Psoralea corylifolia) plant. Bakuchiol is a powerful antioxidant that can reduce skin discolourations caused by environmental exposure whilst having a profound soothing effect on the skin. Bakuchiol also has the desirable effect of reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Due to its similar actions, Bakuchiol is often touted as a natural alternative to retinol and can be used in conjunction with retinol containing products. It is even suggested that two may act synergistically to achieve improved results, Bakuchiol can act to stabilise retinol and its calming properties may help to improve skin tolerance for retinol. 

Retinol is not recommended for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Whilst research has not fully determined if Bakuchiol may be used in these circumstances, the chemical difference with retinol is significant enough that it may not present any issues. Consultation with a healthcare professional is advised though if you are considering using Bakuchiol containing products whilst pregnant or breastfeeding. 

Uses

The soothing properties of Bakuchiol have made it popular in acne formulations whilst its powerful antioxidant properties make it useful in anti-ageing products.

I am hoping my wrinkle goes away

The texture is a bit heavy and sticky when apply on the skin. and color is brown and smells a bit strong. I wanted to feel the benefit so i directly apply on my wrinkle area. only a couple days I have been using. After showering and before sleep.

Anti aging

Bit pricey but you only need to add a small amount to lotions or serums anyway. Hoping long term use will give good results, and I'm sure they will - have read some good research

Great Ingredient

This is great to use in skin oils. I am still in trial stages as it seems to have made the oil go a bit cloudy after a month - could be other ingredients but I'm pretty sure it's this. Otherwise it is beautiful!
