Bakuchiol is an ingredient gaining a lot of attention in Korea at the moment. There are a couple of reason for this; first, it's being touted as a good natural alternative to retinol. Second, it has a history rooted in ancient Chinese medicine, which is well received in Korea. Finally, it is known to be effective and suitable for all skin types.
Bakuchiol is a potent, natural antioxidant, which makes it ideal for those suffering from acne. In addition, a 2019 study confirmed no difference in the effectiveness of retinol and Bakuchiol for those with wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
Unlike retinol, Bakuchiol doesn’t decrease the size of the oil glands so it won’t cause irritation. Bakuchiol also won’t make your skin more sensitive to UV exposure.
