A plant-based Vitamin A rich compound derived from Psoralea corylifolia, is the active ingredient in a new safer alternative to retinol, a Bakuchiol face serum introduced by OM Botanical
Retinol or prescription strength Retin-A is one of those ingredients that is popular and recommended by many dermatologists for its anti-aging and skin brightening benefits. But there is a cost. Retinol also gives you dry, itchy, red skin with increase sun sensitivity and pealing.
Retinol is animal derived derivative of Vitamin A, although most retinol or retin-A products on the market today are synthetic with lower bio-availability and many side effects. Fortunately, there is an alternative.
Bakuchiol is a clinically proven plant-based active vitamin A that visibly fights the signs of aging without the sensitizing or irritating effects of a traditional retinol. OM Botanical Bakuchiol face serum uses this plant-based Vitamin A rich compound derived from Psoralea corylifolia. Bakuchiol, also deemed “nature’s retinol” has been safely used in Ayurveda for thousands of years.
Here’s a look at two important scientifically backed benefits of OM Botanical Bakuchiol Face Serum.
1. Alternative Solution for Sensitive Skin
There’s a reason bakuchiol (a carotinoid) is touted as nature’s safer version of retinol. It has soothing, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that help to comfort skin and minimize issues associated with sensitivity and reactivity. It can also be used on sensitive skin types with present eczema/atopic dermatitis, rosacea and cosmetic intolerance syndrome.
2. Slows Photo-aging Process
According to research, bakuchiol has the potential to stop photo-aging before it starts, when applied topically. Clinically, bakuchiol is shown to improve signs of the photo-aging process, which includes fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation, to a degree comparable to retinol, even after UV exposure. Plus, it works by increasing cell turnover (just like retinol), but doesn’t have the same sensitizing effects that retinol does including flaking and peeling. In turn, it stimulates collagen production and improves skin laxity and bounce.
So as it turns out, once again, OM Botanical, has harnessed the power of nature to formulate a better solutions to various skin afflictions.
