ALL INGREDIENTS :
OLIVE SQUALANE (COSMOS ECOCERT CERTIFIED)
Olive Squalane is a plant-based source of the compound Squalane that is derived from natural olives. It is a lightweight, transparent, tasteless, and odorless liquid that mimics the Squalene component of human sebum. Olive Squalane flows in between the cells of the epidermis to smooth out and significantly soften the texture of skin. It additionally creates a natural, protective barrier on the skin’s surface to slow down transepidermal water loss. Furthermore, it possesses antioxidant properties that guard the skin against free radicals that deteriorate the health of the skin over time, making it useful for ageing skin.
Bakuchiol is a chemical compound naturally occurring and isolated from Psoralea corylifolia seed. It was named Bakuchiol based on the Sanskrit name, Bakuchi, of the plant.
Bakuchiol is a chemical compound having a partial terpenoid structure. The terpenoids, are a large and diverse class of naturally occurring organic chemicals. Terpenoids are the largest class of plant secondary metabolites. Plant terpenoids play a significant role in traditional herbal remedies.
In clinical trials, It has been reported to have structural similarity with Retinol. Bakuchiol possesses antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. According to clinical studies, Bakuchiol is comparable with retinol in its ability to improve photo-aging (wrinkles, hyperpigmentation) with a better skin tolerance. It works through the same receptors that retinol uses, which is why many refer to it as a natural retinol alternative.
NOTE : There is a difference between bakuchiol and bakuchi oil. DO NOT fall in trap if a brand tries to sell you a product with bakuchi oil, do not confuse them with each other. Bakuchiol is a chemical component found in the leaves and seeds of the babchi plant and is chemically extracted whereas Bakuchi oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the babchi plant that yields thick, viscous brownish colored oil. Although both are great for the skin but bakuchi oil doesn't have retinol like properties.
