What is Bakuchiol (ba-koo-heel) and Why Do You Care?

Surely, if you use any skincare product, you’ve heard of retinol by now. Retinol earned its reputation decades ago as a favored skincare ingredient due to its ability to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This Vitamin A derivative works great to provide results when used correctly. BUT, and this is a big but particularly if you have sensitive skin, retinol commonly causes drying and irritation in your skin. These irritations require limited use for many consumers thus slowing down the visual effects and results. Some people simply cannot use retinol in any form due to the sensitivity in their skin.

Until recently, we settled for retinol and all its irritating factors because we simply didn’t have another option. Cue BAKUCHIOL. Bakuchiol is a plant extract alternative to retinol and an alternative that lacks the pesky, negative side effects. Not only does Bakuchiol address those fine lines and wrinkles, it contains antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties as well. Bonus: vegans now have a natural, plant based alternative in anti-aging skincare.

It’s no wonder Bakuchiol is being touted as the new AND NATURAL alternative to retinol. In addition to fighting fine lines and wrinkles, Bakuchiol calms and soothes the skin. It’s growing in popularity due to its results and ease of use. It’s safe to use Bakuchiol morning and night. It’s also safe to use in conjunction with other products such as exfoliators and benzoyl peroxide.


My favorite Bakuchiol product is the Rodan + Fields Overnight Restorative Cream. It visibly lifts, firms and sculpts while you sleep. This night cream also contains Vitamin B3 which provides for a healthy glow.

Now you know, Bakuchiol is a natural, vegan alternative to retinol. It provides the same anti-aging benefits by combating fine lines and wrinkles. But Bakuchiol also includes antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Bakuchiol is a great option for those with sensitive skin or those looking for a natural, plant based anti-aging ingredient.
