There’s no remedy for skin ageing? Yes, there is!

Natural bakuchiol as a fully adequate alternative to retinol

There seems to be little doubt that synthetic ingredients can have outstanding effects in cosmetic products. But what many people rather wish for in our times is the replacement of agents coming from the laboratory by plant-based alternatives to a large extent. Because actually nature knows best what to do. It is not for nothing that traditional Chinese medicine with its countless natural remedies has been considered a respected and inspiring example for modern developments in the areas of medicine, wellness and cosmetics for centuries. This also includes fighting undesirable wrinkles and skin ageing with unique herbs and seeds such as bakuchiol, a natural alternative to retinol which cannot only replace the synthetic agent without making any compromise, but also constitutes a gentle, high-quality alternative without the typical side-effects.

 

Natural agent to fight wrinkles and skin ageing

Bakuchiol is a natural agent which is derived from the seeds of the Psoralea corylifolia plant. The plant, which is also known by the name of babchi, is mainly used in traditional Chinese and ayurvedic medicine to treat various skin diseases. In cosmetic products of the Western world, bakuchiol caused a sensation with its effect as a potent anti-oxidant which considerably improves the hydration, elasticity, firmness and tone of the skin.

 

Bakuchiol as a replacement for retinol in cosmetics applications

Our »natural Bakuchiol» is available as an oil-soluble, brown, viscous solution and intended for use in concentrations of 0.3 to 1 %. The ingredient is considered a gentle alternative to retinol with a similar effectiveness but without undesirable side-effects. Besides reducing wrinkles, bakuchiol stimulates the collagen type I, II and IV expression, has an antibacterial effect and thus minimises inflammations of the skin. By minimising UV-induced skin ageing and thanks to its potent anti-oxidative properties, our natural bakuchiol is perfectly suitable for premium products used to fight wrinkles and acne and to promote an even skin tone.
