Definition: This is the bio-retinoid that has been booming in recent years. Bakuchiol is a natural substance extracted from babchi seeds and is the only plant-based ‘alternative’ to retinol that has shown similar clinically-proven results. Unlike classic retinol formulations, bakuchiol is not irritating and can be used safely during pregnancy!
Don’t forget that like all upcoming and ‘new’ ingredients in the beauty market, these ingredients often need time to prove their efficiency and reliability. Retinol has over 40 years of clinical trials behind it - ten times that of bakuchiol! So don’t start hating on our beloved retinol...this is just another option. Chemically, it has nothing to do with the vitamin-A family, aka retinoids, comparative gene expression profiling.
