Bakuchiol is the new rave in the skincare community. It is termed as a plant-based alternative to Retinol. For people with sensitive skin, this is probably a safe place to start. Its 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 however claims to sustainably and ethically source Bakuchiol from farming communities in Uttrakhand and Rajasthan, India.
