Bakuchiol : Le nouvel ingrédient à adopter

Bakuchiol: The new ingredient to adopt

The beauty and skincare industry has a new hero: bakuchiol. We tell you everything about this natural ingredient, often nicknamed "the plant-based alternative to retinol" which will revolutionize the way we take care of our skin.

Bakuchiol originates from the plant called Psoralea corylifolia , widely used in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine. Unlike retinol, which is well known for its side effects such as dry skin, redness and irritation, bakuchiol is gentler, and most importantly, suitable for all skin types.

Why is Bakuchiol so beneficial for the skin?

Reduces fine lines and wrinkles: Thanks to its antioxidant properties, bakuchiol helps increase the skin's collagen production. This helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while leaving skin firmer and radiant.

Fights Acne : Acne is a major concern for many women, the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of bakuchiol can help reduce inflammation and fight blemish-causing bacteria.

Improves skin texture: Bakuchiol helps regulate cell turnover, which helps improve skin texture and give the complexion a more even appearance

Protection against sun damage: Bakuchiol has antioxidant properties that help protect the skin from free radical damage, which often results from excessive sun exposure.

It is important to note that although bakuchiol is gentler than retinol , it is still necessary to adopt a proper skincare routine. This includes using sunscreen during the day, because although bakuchiol helps protect the skin, it is not a substitute for sunscreen.

How to use Bakuchiol in your skincare routine?

Incorporate bakuchiol into your skincare routine by applying it once or twice daily, depending on the sensitivity of your skin. For maximum effectiveness, apply it after cleansing your face, then follow with your favorite moisturizer to seal in its benefits. You will find many products containing this new active ingredient but we advise you to start by using a concentrated bakuchiol booster to mix with your moisturizer, this will allow you to dose the concentration of bakuchiol necessary for your skin.

To conclude, bakuchiol is a great alternative to retinol for those looking for gentler, more natural solutions. It delivers remarkable results without the usual side effects associated with harsher skin care products. And remember, every skin is unique, so it's always best to test new products gradually to see how your skin reacts.
