Bakuchiol, pronounced “buh-koo-chee-all”, is an extract from the psoralea corylifolia (“babchi”) plant and is the first natural alternative to retinol that has been clinically proven to be just as effective at reducing multiple signs of aging and acne. With continued use, bakuchiol has been shown to stimulate collagen production, reduce fine lines, wrinkles, roughness, pigmentation, acne and dryness, while improving skin tone, elasticity, firmness, acne scarring, radiance and skin brightness. Unlike retinol, this powerhouse ingredient is remarkably suitable for all skin types, does not cause photosensitivity, and is safe to use while pregnant.
