bakuchiol

Bakuchiol is extracted from the seeds and leaves of the Indian plant Psoralea Corylifolia and is considered a natural retinol alternative. Bakuchiol is a powerful ingredient used to treat skin discoloration, hyperpigmentation and leukoderma. With antibacterial and antifungal properties, Bakuchi promotes the skin's natural tone and helps to normalize individual skin pigmentation. Bakuchiol creams and serums stimulate collagen production, minimize wrinkles and lines and improve skin's texture and firmness. The active ingredient has a long tradition as a medicinal plant in Ayurveda and in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Unlike traditional retinoids, bakuchiol does not cause skin burning, irritation or redness.
