Have You Met Nature’s Retinol?

Aug 27, 2021by Jacqueline Mey

It is a common misconception that nature isn’t as powerful as lab-grown components, in fact you can get the same if not better results from natural skincare as you can from unknown chemical and synthetic products.


What is Retinol?

When it comes to anti-ageing one of the most popular ingredients in the market today is retinol.

It is an incredibly powerful chemical compound which is used in the cosmetics industry to slow down your body’s ageing process. It prevents wrinkles, fades dark spots, brightens dull skin and even treats acne. It’s really a no-brainer why retinol is on everyone’s beauty shelf. However, like any chemical, retinol should be used cautiously. No two retinols are created equally so it’s likely your skin will react to different brands.

Retional is a drying ingredient. Dry skin-types have reported flaking, redness, peeling and itchiness. It can also be irritating to sensitive skin types. It should not be applied during the day due to sun exposure and cannot be used if you are pregnant.

Bakuchiol | Nature's Retinol

So what's the solution? This is where nature steps in. Bakuchiol is dubbed ‘nature’s retinol’ and is found in the seeds of the Babchi plant (a gorgeous purple flower).

Bakuchiol has been used for centuries with Chinese and Indian culture’s, who incorporate this soothing agent in many balms. As an antioxidant, it is also anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and research also shows it reduces fine lines and wrinkles. This natural form of retinol plumps skin, evens skin tones, smoothes skin texture, brightens and minimises appearance of pores.

Bakuchiol is vegan friendly, non-irritating, chemical free and is proven to mirror the effects of retinol…without the nasties! Unlike retinol, Bakuchiol doesn’t react to sunlight and is non-toxic for pregnant women, it’s the safe choice.
