Proven to Work in Clinical Studies

Bakuchiol has been studied and proven to be effective in clinical trials, such as one recently published in British Journal of Dermatology (Dhaliwal et al, Br J Dermatol 180(2):289-296, 2019).

This study was randomized and double-blind, and compared the effectiveness of Bakuchiol and Retinol and their effects on wrinkles and pigmentation over a 12 week period. The results? Retinol and Bakuchiol affected wrinkles and pigmentation similarly, but Bakuchiol application resulted in less scaling, stinging, burning and itching (Lev-Tov, Br. J Dermatol 180(2):253-254, 2019).

This study and others suggest that Bakuchiol is as a potent skincare alternative for those seeking natural, non-medicated, products.
