Is your Bakuchiol the one from Sytheon?
Yes! We source our Sytenol® A Bakuchiol from Sytheon.
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
