BAKUCHIOL VERSUS RETINOL
(WHY BAKUCHIOL IS THE RIGHT CHOICE!)
"Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live" (Jim Rohn)
Hello everyone! Welcome to Bakuchiol Botanicals and thanks for stopping by!
Today I want to talk to you about the main ingredient contained in our products, Bakuchiol. Bakuchiol is an all natural alternative to the well-known Retinol. Retinol is widely used in many beauty products, but has been found to have harsh side effects, making Bakuchiol the best choice for your skin.
What is Retinol and what effects does it have on the skin?
Retinol is nothing more than the active form of vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin that occurs naturally in different forms. This includes Retinol and Retinoids, of which there are at least 1500 different types, both synthetic and natural.
Retinol (INCI is Retinol on product packaging), is a yellow crystalline solid that does not dissolve in water, but in oils and fats.
For several decades, this active ingredient has been utilized, more and more frequently, in cosmetic formulations for its anti-aging power and the valuable help it provides against pigmentation disorders and the presence of acne.
It has always been considered an essential ingredient in skin care products, but brands using Retinol have been unable to lessen the harsh side effects.
All that glitters is not gold!
The major risks involved in applying retinol-based creams or cleansers are:
Redness of the skin during the sun exposure, it's it is photosensitized and in a long run can favor the appearance of sun spots. It makes the skin more sensitive under the sunlight, makes the absorbed light amplify and increase the production of free radicals, favoring skin aging.
Since it is a very potent active, it can cause dryness and irritation if used frequently and excessively.
It causes redness, slight flaking and peeling of the skin.
It can cause scaly patches and itchiness.
You don't want that, right?
That's why Bakuchiol Botanicals has found the perfect Retinol replacement, free from harsh side effects.
Let's go and find out together!
Bakuchiol comes from the seeds of the Babchi plant, originally from India and Sri Lanka. Bakuchiol was first scientifically identified in 1966 and became more mainstream in the 1970s. Today, Bakuchiol is considered a form of “Plant Botox,” aiding in the production and restructuring of Collagen for the exfoliating effect and the reduction of skin spots and discolorations.
But what makes it different from Retinol?
Bakukiol has been tested to have the same effects on the skin as Retinol, but without the harsh side effects. Bakuchiol has been thoroughly tested, and it has been proven that it does not cause itching, scaling, or burning. In fact, it is suitable for all skin types, including the most sensitive skin.
Bakuchiol is the ideal answer for anyone who wants to fight the signs of aging without damaging and irritating the skin.
To Sum it Up:
Bakuchiol stimulates the production of Collagen.
Strengthens the elasticity of the skin.
Minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
