Why Bakuchiol is a better alternative to Retinol?

Have you heard about Bakuchiol- natural retinol alternative and its miraculous power of fighting the signs of aging without any side effects? Lets start with getting to know this fantastic ingredient and how it performs against synthetic retinol! 

What is Bakuchiol? (pronounced bah-KOO-chee-all) 

 Bakuchiol flower


Bakuchiol is a plant-based alternative to retinol derived from the PsoraleCorylifolia plant, also known as Babchi, which is native to India, where it has long been used in Ayurvedic practices. 

A recent study published in the British Journal of Dermatology found that not only did Bakuchiol work as effectively as retinol when it came to addressing the signs of aging, but it was also less irritating.  

Retinol is a long-trusted skin care ingredient that has been clinically shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin firmness and improve the skin tone and texture.  

Bakuchiol is clinically proven to offer the same anti-aging results as retinol without the well-known side effects. Synthetic retinol is known to cause irritation, redness, peeling and sun sensitivity.  

Bakuchiol is safe for most skin types and can be applied both AM and PM. As a bonus, Bakuchiol is also a vegan alternative to many retinols. 

Wait, that sounds awesome, but why we are talking about Bakuchiol and all its amazing benefits for your skin?!  

Drum roll please… and we could not be more so excited to introduce our newest Age Defying Rejuvenating Range developed with the holy grail of anti-aging - Bakuchiol!

To Rejuvenate your skin and fall in love with NEW YOU, follow our quick skin care guide and enjoy all the benefits of Bakuchiol:   

Step 1: Before you apply our new Rejuvenating Serum with Bakuchiol make sure to cleanse your face with your favorite Andalou face wash. We love our Sensitive 1000 Roses Cleansing Foam or Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk which will nicely complement our newest range.  

Step 2: Formulated with Bakuchiol, a natural plant-based alternative to retinol, this highly potent serum reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin texture and tone for a firmer, youthful appearance and rejuvenated complexion. 

After cleansing your face pump 3-4 drops of our Age Defying Rejuvenating Serum into your palm. Gently rub your palms together to warm and activate the serum. Lightly press your palms onto your skin and pat the serum on outwards and upwards motions until it is fully applied to your face and neck.

Step 3: To lock in the moisture and improve the performance of your serum, follow with our Age Defying Rejuventating Moisturizer. After you've waited for your serum to  absorb, apply your moisturizer to your face and neck. This step is important to help seal in your serum and lock in the nutrients. It also gives you an extra layer of moisture to protect and hydrate your skin for a supple, dewy glow.
