In recent years, Bakuchiol has gained a lot of attention as the gentler alternative option of retinol. Bakuchiol is an extract found in the seeds and leaves of the plant psoralea corylifolia. It is tempting to use the newest ingredient in formulation. But my research showed that there are not enough evidences and studies to back the claims of Bakuchiol while there are so many long term studies that have proven the benefits of retinol. Yes, if used incorrectly or in the wrong formulation retinol can cause many irritations.
My approach, formulate the most gentle yet effective formulations. It's not about a single active but a whole system of ingredients that work in synergy to give results. Using proven actives at the optimum dosage to get the most benefits. I invite you to try my creation. The gentlest retinol serum. It will not only give your skin the most luminous, brightest glow; it doesn't come with any irritations.
The serum is packed full of vitamins and minerals that will help your skin heals, stay healthy and resilient in the long run. The Retinol in this formulation is encapsulated so it's more stable and less irritating.
