Bakuchiol – what is it? It’s your secret weapon for radiant skin!
If you’ve ever heard of Bakuchiol and wondered: What is it? What is all the hype about? And is it worth adding to your skincare routine? Read on…
What is Bakuchiol?
Bakuchiol is a 100% natural active ingredient, derived from the babchi seeds of the Psoralea Corylifolia plant. It is native to the Himalayan regions of India, Pakistan, and China. It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries to treat a variety of skin issues but has only relatively recently (around 2007) been used in commercial skincare products.
What is all the hype about?
Bakuchiol is a gentle yet powerful alternative to retinol and has been clinically proven to be more efficient and less irritating than salicylic acid. In a recent clinical study, 16 volunteers, aged 41 to 60, tested a lotion containing 1% of Bakuchiol. They found that after 12 weeks, there was a marked improvement in wrinkles, pigmentation, elasticity, firmness, and overall photo-damage, with no irritating effect on the skin. Making it a great option for those with sensitive skin.
The best benefits of Bakuchiol come from its ability to prevent and reverse the signs of aging. It is gentle enough to use on all skin types, including sensitive skin, and can help reduce acne. It is also known to help improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin, making it an excellent choice for anyone looking to maintain a youthful complexion.
