Bakuchiol is a meroterpene in the class terpenophenol. It is a natural, vegan plant-derived alternative to retinol, which is vitamin A based element that supports skin cell turnover and collagen production for more supple and radiant skin. Bakuchiol has very similar traits, but it is gentle on the skin without any drawbacks like redness and irritation.

It is isolated from Psoralea corylifolia seed and was called Bakuchiol based on the Sanskrit name of the plant, Bakuchi.
