Bakuchiol Let’s talk about an A + ingredient and great alternative to standard retinols, Bakuchiol! It has been used in ayurvedic medicine for well over 1,000 years. Bakuchiol is a 100% natural active ingredient obtained from the babchi seeds (psoralea corylifolia plant). Described as the true alternative to retinol, it presents striking resemblances with the performances of retinoids but is much gentler with the skin. Botanical ingredient that helps brighten the skin’s appearance and visibly improve skin tone and clarity. Not all bakuchiols are created equal, and Sytenol A is the gold standard for Bakuchiol and a true retinol alternative.
