Bakuchiol Oil

Psoralea corylifolia

Known for its effectiveness in treating skin discoloration, and hyperpigmentation, bakuchiol oil has become increasingly popular as a natural alternative to retinol. Bakuchiol is clinically proven to have anti-aging effects [1] and has been shown to be a functional analog of retinol – without irritation, dryness, or sun sensitivity.

Bakuchiol is a meroterpene phenol extracted from the seeds and leaves of the Psoralea corylifolia plant, which grows mostly throughout India and is more commonly known as babchi.

INCI: Psoralea corylifolia
