Bakuchiol, babchi, or bakuchi is a powerful herb for treating skin discoloration and hyperpigmentation. The oil is extracted from the seeds and leaves of the Psoralea corylifolia plant, which grows mostly throughout India and is more commonly known as babchi.
Studies have shown that bakuchiol helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles, helps with pigmentation, and it’s clinically proven to enhance skin firmness and elasticity. Bakuchiol works by dramatically stimulating cell turnover rate. Skin becomes brighter, tone and texture improve, and lines and wrinkles soften. The oil promotes a natural color complexion by normalizing skin pigmentation.
Bakuchiol has been shown to share many of the anti-aging benefits of retinol without irritation or dryness.
