WHAT IS BAKUCHIOL?
Bakuchiol (baa-koo-chee-owl) is a naturally derived skincare ingredient found in the seeds of the babchi plant - a popular herb used in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine. The botanical ingredient provides anti-ageing and acne reduction results similar to retinol. However, unlike retinols which require a prescription and are often harsh on the skin, Bakuchiol can be purchased over the counter without the inflammation, peeling, and burning sensations often associated with retinols.
Additionally, some studies have shown that the antioxidants in bakuchiol make retinol more tolerable to those whose dermatologists recommend retinol use or those who wish to continue retinol use. 
HOW DOES BAKUCHIOL WORK?

Bakuchiol works through several mechanisms to provide its skincare benefits. Primarily, the compound has retinal-like effects on the skin. It also has antioxidant properties that protect the skin from free radicals which accelerate aging. Bakuchiol has been shown to stimulate collagen in skin helping to support skin’s firmness and elasticity and combating fine line, wrinkles, and sagging skin. 

Combining Bakuchiol with vitamin E is highly recommended in order to preserve the integrity of the ingredient and lock it into the skin. It is recommended to use it with a moisturizer such as DCL Peptide Plus Cream that contains vitamin E

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BAKUCHIOL?
Bakuchiol has a range of benefits to the skin including: :
  • Anti-ageing: Bakuchiol has been shown to have anti-aging properties, such as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improving skin elasticity and firmness.
  • Skin brightening: Bakuchiol can help to brighten the skin by reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots.
  • Moisturizing: Backuhiol has moisturizing properties that help to hydrate and nourish the skin with antioxidants and protect it from environmental stressors.
  • Anti-inflammatory: Bakuchiol has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to reduce redness and inflammation in the skin, making it beneficial for people with sensitive or acne-prone skin.
  • Safe for sensitive users: Unlike retinol, which can cause irritation and dryness, bakuchiol is generally well-tolerated by all skin types, including sensitive skin and those that are pregnant or breastfeeding. *If you are pregnant or breastfeeding we suggest checking with your healthcare provider before using bakuchiol products.
ARE THE POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS OF BAKUCHIOL?

Although Bakuchiol has been cited as a safe alternative to retinol, like with any personal care product, there is potential for side effects such as slight tingling sensation and increased redness. Most users report that they have no issues using bakuchiol, and those that do say the side-effects are mild and temporary.

If you have sensitive skin or history of skin allergies, it is important to patch test any new skincare product before using it on your face. Apply a small amount of product to an inconspicuous area of skin, such as behind your ear or the inside of your wrist, and waist 24 to 48 hours to see if any irritation or redness develops.

If more serious reactions occur, discontinue use immediately and seek medical attention.

It is also important to note that peptides are not a substitute for professional skincare treatment for specific skin conditions. If you have a skin condition that requires medical attention, consult with a dermatologist or other qualified skincare professional.

WHO SHOULD USE BAKUCHIOL?

Bakuchiol is generally suitable for a wide range of individuals including those with sensitive skin types, those who want anti-ageing products, those with hyperpigmentation or dark spots, those who prefer natural skincare, and those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
