Featured Ingredient: Bakuchiol
Bakuchiol is a 100% natural plant extract derived from the seeds of the babchi plant, also know as psoralea corylifolia. The babchi plant has been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine for its numerous health benefits. Bakuchiol is a clinically evaluated plant extract that is considered a true retinol alternative due to its similar effect on cellular activity. However, the benefit of using Bakuchiol is that it does not have the negative side of effects associated with synthetic retinol i.e photosensitivity and irritation. Clinical studies using .5% Bakuchiol demonstrate a similar effect on cellular turnover as retinol, leading to an increase in collagen production and a significant reduction in fine line and wrinkles with improvements in skin tone, elasticity and firmness. Bakuchiol also acts as a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. With its numerous skin beneficial properties, Bakuchiol is a multi-correctional botanical active that not only addresses signs of aging, but also blemishes and clogged pores. Just like synthetic retinol, Bakuchiol has impressive acne-fighting benefits. Bakuchiol is a safe and natural alternative to retinol, with no adverse side effects to skin or health, making it Root Science approved.
