Do you Bakuchiol?
We’re going to tell you about the latest beauty buzz: it’s called bakuchiol, and it’s the real deal.
First off – thank you Mother Nature! Bakuchiol is a vegan all-natural ingredient found in the leaves and seeds of the Psoralea corylifolia plant and it has been around for literally thousand of centuries thanks to its skin-soothing properties. It’s pretty much a rock star in skincare. The Cut calls it “better than retinol” – and here’s why:
+ Baukchiol is a potent antioxidant that helps protect the skin’s surface from oxidative damage caused by free radicals and environmental aggressors like UV and pollution.
+ It’s wrinkle-smoothing and skin-firming.
+ Antioxidants have powerful anti-aging benefits – and this one is very gentle with a soothing effect on the skin.
+ Because it’s so gentle, it won’t cause irritation and dryness.
+ It’s an amazing and impactful natural option for battling acne.
What does Bakuchiol do:
It visibly reduces skin discolorations from environmental exposure while at the same time soothing, smoothing and firming.
Many call it “the natural retinol” but the question is: does it work as well?
Results say: YES!
One blind test used 0.5% bakuchiol cream versus a 0.5% retinol cream. Get this: the results were nearly identical! Users applied for 12 weeks, the typical time needed for noticeable age-reversing results.
And maybe the best thing about bakuchiol is that it very gentle on skin and perfect for sensitive skin. Retinol can cause skin redness and irritation – bakuchiol does not have the same redness-inducing effect.

Bakuchiol is also the star of our Bye Bye Blemishes Kit because of it’s powerful all-natural acne fighting properties and doesn’t stress out skin.
Take it from Dr. Asif Hussein, Senior Clinical Lecturer at London’s Queen Mary University, who specializes in cosmetic dermatology and laser surgery. He says, “Bakuchiol is an effective alternative to retinoids in the fight against acne. It’s a plant-derived compound and is much better tolerated than retinoids.”
