Bakuchiol is the new rave in the skincare community. It is termed a plant-based alternative to Retinol. For people with sensitive skin, this is probably a safe place to start. It’s a gentler option and doesn’t have adverse side effects. The catch however is that it may not be sustainable. Bakuchiol is derived from Psoralea Corylifolia, an endangered plant, which can cause a hurdle in sustainability. Qurez claims to sustainably and ethically source Bakuchiol from farming communities in Uttrakhand and Rajasthan, India.
Please do not expect it to replace Retinol or show results like Retinol. It is termed a natural alternative but more study is required.
