Bakuchiol – “A Natural Alternative to Retinol”
We at OKOKO Cosmétiques plan to revolutionize the green beauty industry by offering a singular indulgent experience through our newly enhanced product Les 16 Précieux Serum with star ingredient - Bakuchiol. This product is specifically targeted to offer anti-aging skin benefits tantamount to Retinol.
Why Bakuchiol ?
Bakuchiol is a natural alternative to Retinol, sans the side-effects. For many skincare enthusiasts who are specifically looking for effective anti-aging products, a product with Retinol seems to be the only option to get started with. For some it’s a matter of accepting the side effects entailed with Retinol products; whereas some swither to take the plunge. With that focus in mind, we set out to search for an equally efficacious ingredient that would be potent enough to offer skin benefits on par with Retinol, but would not compromise on the skin condition in the process.
What is Bakuchiol ?
“Bakuchiol is a natural retinol replacement that addresses all signs of aging and improves skin radiance and glory.” Bakuchiol is an antioxidant derived from the seeds and leaves of the plant Psorlea Corylifolia. It aids in boosting collagen production; reforming skin’s elasticity, firmness; as well as reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots. Bakuchiol is non-irritating and non-sensitizing (does not make the skin photosensitive), which means it can be used during the day.
So Bakuchiol offers all the benefits of retinol, such as improved skin texture; reduced appearance of hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, discoloration and scarring…all of this, without the harsh, drying and UV sensitizing side effects. What’s more, Bakuchiol contains anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that aid with acne treatment. Such an amazing all-rounder, we must say! Click here to bring home your Les 16 Precieux Serum.
