Clinical studies have shown Sytenol® A Bakuchiol is:

  • Effective active agent against blemished skin,
  • Regulates & balances sebum production,
  • Anti-aging and anti-wrinkle,
  • Reduces hyperpigmentation just as retinol,
  • Stimulates collagen production and cell turnover,
  • Maintains high level of elastin naturally produced in the skin.


Uneven skin tone, blemished, or acne prone skin, early or advanced signs of ageing, excess sebum production, or hyperpigmentation. Suitable for all for skin types: oily, dry, normal and combination.


Lightweight, nourishing and readily absorbed bright golden honey colored dry oil, with a pleasant floral-fruity aroma derived from the lavender, bergamot, Egyptian geranium rose, and sea buckthorn oils in the formula. Almost no oily residue is left behind after proper application. Leaves skin silky soft. Pure Nature in a Bottle™

Is your Bakuchiol the one from Sytheon?

Yes! We source our Sytenol® A Bakuchiol from Sytheon, the only manufacturer of this single molecule ingredient.

Is Bakuchiol the same as Retinol?

No, Bakuchiol is not Retinol. Bakuchiol is a completely unique active ingredient that provides the same results Retinol is known for, but with the added benefit that can be used during the day, as it's not photo-toxic.

Is this the fake Bakuchiol extract that's so bad for the skin?

No. Our Bakuchiol Smoothing Serum contains the REAL Bakuchiol meroterpene, not the aqueous extract, which is not and should not be called Bakuchiol but Psoralea corylifolia Extract. For more information on what is Bakuchiol please visit this ARTICLE

Why is your Bakuchiol Serum yellow/gold and not purple?

Bakuchiol (Sytenol® A), the real single molecule ingredient from the only manufacturer Sytheon, is a sticky and dense golden/brown oil soluble ingredient. Products formulated with this ingredient are never white, purple or pink.

Can you formulate a water based serum with Bakuchiol?

Because Bakuchiol is hydrophobic (water repellent) ingredient, and it's an oil soluble ingredient, it's impossible to formulate a fully water-based serum without the use of a solubilizer or emulsifier. In the case an emulsifier is used, the product will result into either a milk, light lotion or cream, depending on formulation.

I have sensitive

I have sensitive skin and traditional retinols make my skin really angry, flaky and red, so bad that it hurts to the touch. I really pleased to have stumbled on this bakuchiol serum. After reading extensively on this ingredient, I found there are just a handful of products formulated with the real thing, instead of the cancer causing bakuchiol extract others contain. The bakuchiol in this serum is gentle and I haven't experienced any irritation not even the first time I used it. This serum is really potent and all I need to apply is a few drops to cover my entire face, and neck. I notice I don't need to apply any moisturizer after this serum, but I do like applying the Roses & Hibiscus serum prior to applying this one. This serum has a subtle floral/berry scent which I find very pleasant and doesn't bother me at all. I have seen real results within a week! My skin looks more even toned, dark spots seem to be fading quite rapidly, thin lines are almost gone and the deeper one seem to be less deep. Skin is incredibly softer and smooth, and it has this glow I haven't experienced with any other products. Totally in love with it!

Love the quality

Love the quality of this product. Although an oil it soaks in well, and doesn’t leave me feeling greasy or oily. It smells divine! The perfect retinol alternative. This paired with the barcola replenishing elixir with hyaluronic acid, my fine lines & wrinkles are not only gone they stay gone!
