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.

Bakuchiol is known for its Antibacterial, Antioxidant, Anti-inflammatory and Antiaging activity on skin. It can be used in skin care products like serums, creams, lotions, cleansers.

Evens skin toneBakuchiol deeply penetrates the skin to help lessen the appearance of dark spots or areas of hyperpigmentation.
Reduces the appearance of fine linesLike retinol, bakuchiol tells your cells to regenerate and make collagen, “plumping” your skin and reducing the look of lines and wrinkles.
Doesn’t cause dryness or irritationWhile retinol and other skincare ingredients may dry out skin or cause irritation, bakuchiol is more gentle and isn’t known to cause any irritation.
Speeds up skin cell regenerationBakuchiol sends signals to your cells that it’s time to amp up collagen production and cell turnover.
Suitable for all skin typesBeing gentle on skin, most anyone can use bakuchiol.
Helps soothe and heal skinBy promoting cell turnover and healthy cell regeneration, Bakuchiol may help soothe and heal your skin from the inside out.
