The Unknown Story About Bakuchiol
We love good skincare formulations which contain quality ingredients! Let's talk about our favourite ones and we will start with Bakuchiol. It is so-called natural alternative of retinol and is an interesting and rising ingredient.
Who is it for?
All skin types and skin concerns.
How to use it?
Anytime, day and night.
Pairs well with: Retinoids, Niacinamide and Peptides.
Bakuchiol is safe to use for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. You can use it on your body as well. If you are prone to having eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis or sensitive skin, Bakuchiol will come to the rescue!
You can use Bakuchiol around the eye area. The skin on the eye area is thinner than any skin on the rest of your face, using the gentle Bakuchiol is safer for any skin type.
It is safe to use twice daily. Unlike retinol, Bakuchiol can be used twice daily since it is a plant extract and does not have any photo sensitive compound.
Over the last 3-4 years, many studies have explored the benefits of Bakuchiol and its synergistic effects when combined with other ingredients like retinol, vitamin C or salicylic acid. It is becoming increasingly clear that, much like famous Retinoid and Niacinamide combo, we may have another perfect pairing for achieving brighter, smoother skin.
Instead of focusing solely on increasing the percentage of a single ingredient like Vitamin A (retinol), synergistically paired ingredients are in a way allowing us to provide a boost in benefits without the drawbacks of high concentrations of a single ingredient (irritation, flakiness and erythema).
In our Daily Support Oil we paired Bakuchiol with Retinyl Palmitate as well as the selection of cold pressed, organic, non-inflammatory oils. Here is the list of the multifinctional benefits of Bakuchiol:
- potent skin brightener
- fades hyperpigmentation
- boosts firmness, elasticity
- smoothens fine lines, wrinkles
-gentle and non irritating
In short, a rising star!
The same benefits we could add to Retinyl Palmitate which is in short, the original rock star!
However, when combining Bakuchiol and Retinyl Palmitate in a same product the result is the combo for enhanced results:
- boost overall brightening
- boost anti-acne benefits
- boost the stability of formulations
- reduce the risk of irritation, flakiness and erythema
