What it is:
Antioxidant-rich Retinol alternative overnight oil formula works to nourish while promoting collagen production to improve elasticity, skin texture, and increasing cell turnover leaving the skin looking smoother, firmer, brighter and plumper.
Features and Benefits:
Bakuchiol from Organic Babchi Seed: A revered component in Ayurvedic traditions, Bakuchiol acts as a botanical counterpart to Retinol. Clinically demonstrated to rival the efficacy of Retinol, it aids in collagen stimulation and cell turnover. This results in reduced wrinkles, balanced hydration, diminished dark spots, even skin tone, minimized pores, acne management, and amplified firmness, sans the typical irritation linked to Retinol. The outcome? A visibly refined, moisturized, and rejuvenated complexion.
CoQ10: Integral to cellular energy, CoQ10 levels wane with age, leading to less vibrant, more aged skin. By replenishing its levels topically, skin cells are energized, facilitating damage repair and toxin removal. CoQ10’s antioxidant nature also acts as a defense against environmental stressors and curbs collagen degradation.
Black Seed (Black Cumin) Oil: Esteemed for its array of skin benefits - from inflammation counteraction to collagen and elastin fortification. Rich in amino acids, vitamin A, and fatty acids, its hero compound, thymoquinone, fights inflammation, reducing puffiness and redness. Its fatty acid content ensures a fortified skin barrier, locking in moisture.
Immortelle (Helichrysum): This potent botanical hydrator doubles as a detoxifier. It shields the skin, minimizes collagen and elastin degradation, and counters skin-damaging microbes.
Calendula: Esteemed for its calming properties, Calendula works in synergy with the formula, enhancing the skin's healing processes. Packed with antioxidants and fatty acids, Calendula not only helps prevent moisture loss but also complements other ingredients, ensuring a balanced, holistic approach to skin hydration and repair. Within this blend, its nurturing properties are amplified, making it pivotal in achieving a well-hydrated, fuller skin appearance.

Commonly asked questions
Is bakuchiol better than retinol?
We know with all skin types as we age, along with our body and health, our skin can become less vibrant, with wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles, larger pores, and other signs of aging becoming more noticeable; especially if we've neglected using the best skincare products, moisturizer, and ample sun protection. To counteract these common signs of aging in the face, people have for years made a choice to use different forms and strengths of retinol (Vitamin A derivative) and endured the associated side effects of retinol such as dryness, redness, and peeling. Fortunately, modern science has finally caught up with centuries old Ayurvedic beauty wisdom and started delving into the benefits of the Babchi (Psoralea Corylifolia) seeds, known for its famous skin treatment extract, bakuchiol. The scientific studies on Bakuchiol are voluminous. One impressive recent study published in the British Journal of Dermatology compared natural bakuchiol to retinol. The study found that "bakuchiol and retinol both significantly decreased wrinkle surface area and hyperpigmentation, with no statistical difference between the compounds. The retinol users reported more facial skin scaling and stinging." The dermatologists authoring the study concluded that "bakuchiol is comparable with retinol in its ability to improve photoaging and is better tolerated than retinol. Bakuchiol is promising as a more tolerable alternative to retinol." (Dhaliwal, S., Rybak, I., Ellis, S. R., Notay, M., Trivedi, M., Burney, W., Vaughn, A. R., Nguyen, M., Reiter, P., Bosanac, S., Yan, H., Foolad, N., & Sivamani, R. K. (2019). Prospective, randomized, double-blind assessment of topical bakuchiol and retinol for facial photoageing. The British journal of dermatology, 180(2), 289–296. https://doi.org/10.1111/bjd.16918) The science-based findings of this bakuchiol study are impressive. Bakuchiol performs as well as Retinol with less irritation. This information is great news for those people who want to find natural skin care products for their daily skincare routine but also want to use products that are active and effective for aging skin.
In conclusion, bakuchiol is a natural solution for people looking to help turn around the signs of aging. People who want a smoothing serum, firming serum, glow cream, anti aging serum all in one bottle.
