Natural skincare ingredients continue to dominate the skincare world and one of the latest and most exciting buzzwords in beauty is “Bakuchiol.” Bakuchiol (pronounced buh-koo-chee-all) is a natural, plant-based ingredient that has been gaining popularity as a potential alternative to Retinol. Read on to explore what Bakuchiol is, its benefits, and how it compares to dermatologist powerhouse Retinol.
What is Bakuchiol?
Bakuchiol is a plant-based ingredient that is derived from the seeds and leaves of the Babchi plant (Psoralea Corylifolia). This plant is native to India and has been revered in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for centuries for various skin conditions. Bakuchiol has been shown to have Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties. Unlike Retinol, Bakuchiol is also a non-irritating ingredient, making it an attractive option for those with sensitive skin.

Bakuchiol vs. Retinol
Anyone who has ever tried Ultra Care+ Retinol & Super-C Serum knows just what a powerhouse this ingredient can be. Retinol is loved by dermatologists and skin experts for decades to treat many skin concerns. It’s derived from Vitamin A and is known for its ability to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture. However, Retinol can also be irritating, causing redness, peeling, and flakiness, especially in those with sensitive skin.
Bakuchiol, on the other hand, is a non-irritating ingredient that provides similar benefits to Retinol without the potential side effects. While both ingredients can help to help in the visible stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture, Bakuchiol may be a better option for those with sensitive skin or who are unable to tolerate Retinol. Plus, unlike Retinol, Bakuchiol won’t make skin more sensitive to the sun’s harmful rays and is safe to use during pregnancy and breast-feeding.
