Bakuchiol: How and Why to integrate it

Bakuchiol , an active ingredient derived from the seeds and leaves of the Psoralea corylifolia plant, is presented as a plant-based alternative to retinol. Known for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and soothing effects, bakuchiol is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. This component, at the heart of certain Korean skincare products available on our specialized e-shop, opens the way to a renewed beauty routine, oriented towards cellular renewal and the fight against imperfections without irritating the skin.

What is bakuchiol?

Bakuchiol, originating from Indian and Chinese medicinal traditions, has long been used to treat various skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and rosacea. This substance of plant origin, extracted from the leaves and seeds of the Psoralea corylifolia plant, stands out for its antioxidant properties, capable of reducing sun-induced pigmentation and soothing the skin. Additionally, bakuchiol promotes the reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines through its ability to stimulate cell turnover and collagen production.

  • Properties and Benefits:
  • Antioxidant: Protects the skin from damage caused by free radicals.
  • Anti-inflammatory: Ideal for acne-prone skin, reducing redness and inflammation.
  • Anti-aging: Stimulates the production of collagen, reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Safety: Unlike retinol, it does not cause sensitivity or redness, making it suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

In addition, bakuchiol fits perfectly into morning or evening skincare routines, being stable in direct light. It is a great alternative for those looking to incorporate bakuchiol-based products into their beauty routine, particularly thanks to our specialized selection of Korean skincare products containing this precious ingredient.

How to incorporate bakuchiol into your skincare routine:

To incorporate bakuchiol into your skincare routine, start by following these simple steps, suitable for everyone, including teenagers looking for glowing skin:

  1. Cleaning: Apply your favorite cleaning product to remove impurities. This prepares the skin to receive the benefits of bakuchiol.
  2. Application of Bakuchiol :
  • Use a bakuchiol concentration of 0.5% to 2% for visible results.
  • Apply a few drops of bakuchiol serum to clean, dry skin. For optimal absorption, massage gently onto face, eye area and neck.
  1. Hydration and Protection :
  • Follow with a moisturizer suited to your skin type.
  • During the day, apply sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun.

For those looking to enrich their routine with specific products, our e-shop specializing in Korean skincare offers an exclusive selection containing bakuchiol. These products, like Dr. Pierre Ricaud's multi-zone anti-wrinkle biphase elixir, fit perfectly into daily care, offering a gentle alternative to retinol. Bakuchiol can be used alone or in addition to other active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid to maximize benefits. Remember, if you are pregnant, it is advisable to consult a doctor before incorporating bakuchiol into your skincare routine.


How should we apply bakuchiol in our skincare routine?

For correct use, bakuchiol, which is lipophilic and therefore prefers fatty formulations like oils or emulsions (creams or fluids), should be applied twice a day, in the morning and evening. In the morning, it provides essential antioxidant protection for the day.

Are there any products to avoid when using bakuchiol?

It is recommended not to layer the concentrated Glycolic Acid 10% & AHA facial serum, the concentrated Bakuchiol serum, and the concentrated Niacinamide 10%, Copper & Zinc serum. These serums, being highly concentrated in powerful active ingredients, may not be compatible when used together.

What benefits does bakuchiol offer for the skin?

Bakuchiol, often mentioned as an alternative to Retinol, offers a multitude of benefits for the skin, including anti-wrinkle, antioxidant, anti-blemish, and anti-dark spots properties. This active ingredient, 100% of natural, plant and vegan origin, is generally better tolerated and has become a favorite in skincare routines.

When should you start using bakuchiol?

Integrating bakuchiol into your skincare routine is simple: simply apply it once or twice a day, after cleansing, applying a toner and an AHA or BHA exfoliant. If you're using a lightweight bakuchiol serum, apply it before your moisturizer.
