For those of you who experience dryness, redness and so many unwanted irritations from retinol use, we are proud to share with you this all natural ingredient that has been clinically proven to match retinol.
This ingredient is BAKUCHIOL. It's all natural, plant-based and vegan and behaves just like retinol but without the irritation, redness or flakiness.
So what benefits can you expect from bakuchiol you may ask?
Proven studies show decreased appearance of hyperpigmentation and fine lines + wrinkles.
BAKUCHIOL is ideal for anyone sensitive to retinol and safe for use during the daytime and during pregnancy.

For more details on one of the Bakuchiol studies we looked at:
44 volunteers were asked to apply either bakuchiol 0.5% cream twice daily, or retinol 0.5% cream daily for 12 weeks.
The study found that bakuchiol and retinol both significantly decreased wrinkle surface area and hyperpigmentation, with no statistical difference between the two compounds. However, the retinol users reported more skin scaling and stinging. 0.5% Retinol has previously been shown to be effective at preventing and addressing signs of skin ageing but can have side effects including stinging, scaling and redness....
The results were most marked after the full 12 weeks, with a 20% reduction in WRINKLE SEVERITY. 59% of the people in the bakuchiol group showed improvement in their hyperpigmentation at week 12, compared to 44% in the retinol group.
The findings of this study are promising for bakuchiol as an effective anti‐ageing treatment with minimal side effects.
