Collagen and elastin: the effects of bakuchiol

Bakuchiol is an ingredient that we are hearing more and more about: a plant-based alternative to retinol, it has many benefits for the skin without the irritating effects of retinol. This is why it is increasingly popular in anti-aging formulas . For good reason, it accelerates cell renewal. It is therefore a highly sought-after ingredient for its anti-wrinkle, anti-dark spots and anti-scarring effects due to acne. So what is bakuchiol's relationship to collagen and elastin, two essential components of healthy skin?

Collagen and elastin: what are they? What is the difference ?

Two types of skin aging are often identified on the face: either the cheeks deepen and wrinkles multiply, or the face is affected by gravity and the oval of the face is lost. In both cases, two constituents of our skin are at the origin of this skin sagging: elastin and collagen.

Elastin is a protein in the dermis that gives the skin its elasticity. As for collagen, it is a fibrous protein which guarantees the cohesion of the dermis. Elastin is therefore responsible for the skin's suppleness and resilience, while collagen is responsible for its firmness and plumpy effect.

We produce collagen naturally throughout our lives, but its production tends to decrease from the age of 30. The production of elastin, on the other hand, stops at puberty. This is why it is important to stimulate the production of these proteins with targeted active ingredients. Here is a graph to help you better understand the role of these proteins in the skin:


Bakuchiol is a natural ingredient extracted from the seeds of the babchi plant, a medicinal plant found in Eastern Asia. Natural, this ingredient is a source of antioxidants which stimulates collagen production and accelerates cell regeneration. Bakuchiol offers the same anti-aging effects as retinol without the irritation that comes with it. It is therefore perfect for sensitive skin looking for specific effects.

How does bakuchiol slow down skin aging?

Bakuchiol has two anti-aging actions: it prevents and slows down skin aging. Bakuchiol protects the skin from oxidative stress because it is an important source of antioxidants. It therefore prevents skin aging, accelerated by oxidative stress . Finally, it accelerates the cell regeneration cycle: it therefore smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, erases pigment spots , refines skin texture and stimulates collagen production. It is therefore a favorite for anti-wrinkle and anti-aging treatments.

It's normal to be skeptical when you hear that bakuchiol has all the benefits of retinol without the flaws. But more and more scientific studies prove it: bakuchiol accelerates cell renewal and does not generate any redness or irritation. It is therefore the anti-aging ingredient to prefer when you have sensitive skin!

What ingredients stimulate the production of collagen and elastin?

Facial gym offers many ways to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin: using a gua sha , a jade roller or boulado improves the tone of the skin. In just 5 minutes a day, you can reshape the contours of your face, plump up your cheeks and smooth out wrinkles.

Concerning the active ingredients to look for:

- As said previously, bakuchiol is a flagship anti-aging active ingredient that accelerates cell renewal and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Our anti-aging booster is highly concentrated in bakuchiol: three drops added to its moisturizer are enough to restore firmer, smoother skin. Bakuchiol combines safely with other ingredients and does not lose its effectiveness.

- Stimulating the production of collagen, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid is the key ingredient of the hydrating booster . It allows you to improve the hydration of your usual moisturizing cream while benefiting from a light anti-aging action. Perfect for the first signs of aging!

- Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant: it slows down photoaging by reducing oxidative stress. It also stimulates the production of collagen. And that's why we find it in our radiance booster , a morning must-have!

- Peptides in general stimulate the entire production of collagen: they are particularly effective in reducing wrinkles by restoring volume to the skin.
