🌸 Bakuchiol is a plant-based compound that has recently gained popularity in the skincare industry as a natural alternative to retinol. It is derived from the seeds and leaves of the babchi plant (Psoralea corylifolia) which is native to Asia.
🌸 Bakuchiol has been shown to have similar anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties to retinol, but without the potential side effects such as skin irritation and sensitivity. It is also considered safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, unlike retinol.
🌸 Bakuchiol has been shown to help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone, as well as increase skin firmness and elasticity. It can be found in a variety of skincare products such as serums, moisturizers, and facial oils.
