Why You Should Incorporate Bakuchiol Oil in Your Skincare Routine

What is Bakuchiol Oil

Bakuchiol oil is a natural extract derived from the seeds and leaves of the Psoralea corylifolia plant, commonly known as Bakuchi. This herb has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for centuries due to its powerful healing properties. Bakuchiol has recently gained popularity in the skincare industry as a gentle and effective alternative to retinol, offering similar anti-aging and skin-soothing benefits without the associated irritation.

Bakuchiol vs. Retinol: What’s the Difference?

What is it?

  • Bakuchiol: A plant-based compound extracted from the Bakuchi plant.
  • Retinol: A form of Vitamin A often derived from animal sources or synthetically produced.

How it works ?

  • Bakuchiol: Stimulates collagen production and cell turnover, similar to retinol, improving skin texture and reducing wrinkles
  • Retinol: Promotes cell turnover and collagen production, improving skin texture and reducing wrinkles.

How will my skin react?

  • Bakuchiol: Well-tolerated by all skin types, including sensitive skin, without causing redness, dryness, or peeling.
  • Retinol: Can cause irritation, redness, dryness, and peeling, especially when first introduced to a skincare routine.

Can I wear it in the sun?

  • Bakuchiol: Does not increase skin’s sensitivity to the sun, making it suitable for use both day and night.
  • Retinol: Nope, it increases skin’s sensitivity to the sun, usually recommended for nighttime use only and with mandatory sun protection during the day.

Benefits of Bakuchiol for Skin

  • Anti-Aging Properties: Bakuchiol promotes collagen production, which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Its ability to stimulate cell turnover also results in smoother and more youthful-looking skin.
  • Antioxidant Protection: Rich in antioxidants, Bakuchiol helps to protect the skin from environmental stressors and free radical damage, which can lead to premature aging.
  • Anti-Inflammatory and Soothing: Bakuchiol possesses anti-inflammatory properties that can help calm irritated skin and reduce redness, making it an excellent choice for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin.
  • Brightening Effect: Regular use of Bakuchiol can improve skin tone and texture, resulting in a brighter and more even complexion.
