Bakuchiol v.s. Retinol

Bakuchiol VS All-Trans Retinol

WHAT'S BEST FOR SKIN SENSITIVITY?

Bakuchiol is known in skincare circles as an alternative to Retinol for sensitive skin types, but has recently been in the spotlight as an "all-natural" alternative to Retinol products. Both compounds are often used in skincare, but have different properties and benefits when compared to each other.

NATURAL VS SYNTHETIC SOURCES

Bakuchiol is a natural compound derived from the seeds and leaves of the Psoralea Corylifolia plant.

Retinoids, on the other hand, are synthetic compounds derived from Vitamin A. All-Trans Retinol is the smallest molecular form of retinol and exhibits unique qualities. Namely, slower penetration and less irritation than typical retinol products.

Remember: Natural doesn't always mean better! Bukachiol offers wider skin compatibility at the cost of product stability and shelf life.

HOW BAKUCHIOL WORKS COMPARED TO RETINOL

Retinoids work by binding to retinoic acid receptors in the skin, which regulate processes such as cell turnover and collagen production.

Bakuchiol is often touted as a natural alternative to retinoids because it exhibits similar effects on the skin without the potential irritation. However, some individuals may find that Bakuchiol is not as effective as All-Trans Retinol, especially for more severe skin issues.

EFFICACY OF BAKUCHIOL VS RETINOL

Products formulated with Retinol are reported to elicit rapid skin change at the cost of skin peeling, dryness and sensitivity. All of which are typically addressed with complimentary skincare to offset side effects.

While some studies suggest that Bakuchiol may have similar effects to retinoids in terms of reducing wrinkles, users report less rapid results when compared to All-Trans Retinol. The use of follow up skincare may not be as essential due to the low-level stimulation Bakuchiol offers.

CLINICAL USE OF BAKUCHIOL VS RETINOL

Retinol and other retinoids have been extensively studied and approved by regulatory agencies for use in skincare products. Bakuchiol, being a relatively newer ingredient, may not have the same level of regulatory approval in all regions, which could raise concerns about quality control and safety standards.

MICRO-ENCAPSULATED ALL-TRANS RETINOL

Micro-encapsulated All-Trans Retinol is the smallest form of Retinol. It's known and widely studied for its ability to accelerate cell turnover, stimulate collagen production, and deliver noticeable results relatively quickly. However, Retinol may cause irritation, especially in sensitive skin types, and can sometimes require careful introduction into skincare routines.

CHOOSING AN INGREDIENT FOR YOUR SKIN

It's essential to consider these factors and consult with a dermatologist or skincare professional when choosing between Bakuchiol and Retinol to address specific skin concerns. However, we recommend utilizing All-Trans Retinol as a way to bridge the gap between prescription strength Tretinoin and Bakuchiol.
