When it comes to reversing the signs of skin aging, Retinol is hands down the industry's gold standard ingredient.
While retinol products can be a great anti-aging active the irritation factor makes it difficult for sensitive skin to tolerate. For more sensitive skin types and for those who don't want to use a chemically produced Vitamin A you may decide a retinol alternative is the right choice for your skin.
What is retinol?
The strongest form of retinoid available without a prescription, retinol is converted by our skin enzymes into the even stronger form of Retinoic Acid.
What does retinol do for our skin?
Retinoids minimize the appearance of wrinkles, boost collagen production, bolster skin's thickness and elasticity and lighten dark spots caused by sun exposure.
Bakuchiol, a natural alternative to retinol
There are many products out there claiming to be retinol alternatives many of which are products that are largely made from Rosehip Seed Oil which is rich in vitamin A but on it's own it is not nearly as effective as Bakuchiol Babchi Seed Oil - a potent source of topical trans-retinoic acid (vitamin A) from a plant source that has actually been scientifically studied and proven to function the same way as retinol. Unlike retinol, Bakuchiol does not have the draw backs of irritation or dryness.
About Bakuchiol Seed
Bakuchiol is a naturally-occuring antioxidant found in the leaves and seeds of the babchi herb (Psoralea corylifolia), - native to India. Considered a powerful natural antioxidant with similar properties to resveratrol, and most recent studies show similar anti-aging properties to retinol.
