Aging is the most basic natural law in the biological world, and the skin is the most intuitive manifestation of aging. The characteristic changes of skin are often regarded as an important indicator to estimate a person’s age. As a result, skin aging is a common concern as part of overall aging. When it comes to the topic of skin aging, almost all the Retinol this ingredient, that is, vitamin A is simply said. It can perfectly solve the fine lines and wrinkles on the skin, but also has the disadvantages of being afraid of light and easy to stimulate the skin. Even if there are many variations of vitamin A derivatives, but after all, it still cannot successfully replace the absolute effect of vitamin A. As a result, the cosmetics industry is also looking for alternatives to retinol, especially in plant extracts. Now, a surprising plant extract, bakuchiol, has been shown to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, pigmentation and increase collagen production without any of the adverse effects of retinol. Its beauty and skin care function has attracted wide attention. It is a kind of cosmetic active ingredient with great potential and various effects. How does Bakuchiol work in skin care products? Could Bakuchiol be the next star skin care ingredient? Let’s explore together.

Bakuchiol

Bakuchiol originated from India, is a monoterpenoid compound isolated from Psoralea legume. It is a plant derived compound and one of the main active components extracted from Psoralea corylifolia. It has been used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. It has many benefits, such as anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, anti-oxidation, acne, firming, moisturizing and so on. Among them, anti-wrinkle and anti-oxidation ability are the highlights of this ingredient.

Bakuchiol——Mild and effective anti-aging star

Bakuchiol can enhance the activity of human skin fibroblasts, reduce the breakdown of skin collagen, and promote the synthesis of skin collagen, which helps to reduce wrinkles and improve skin elasticity, thus achieving anti-aging efficacy. Bakuchiol is structurally different from retinol, but its anti-aging effects are comparable to those of retinol. Studies have shown that the application of Bakuchiol products after 12 weeks of treatment, subjects showed significant improvement in skin wrinkles, and observed effective improvement in pigmentation, skin elasticity, light damage, without the usual retinol-related adverse reactions, is a very mild and effective anti-aging ingredient. At the same time, compared with retinol, it is mild, low irritation to the skin, and no photosensitivity, suitable for a wider group of people, also available during the day.

Bakuchiol——Super antioxidant star

Bakuchiol structure belongs to the natural antioxidant, also known as plant “retinol”, known as the estrogen of plants. Free radical damage to cells is the main cause of aging. The lipids in sebum are oxidized by ultraviolet light. The resulting peroxide can irritate the delicate epidermis of the hair follicle’s funnel, leading to excessive keratinization. The exfoliated keratinocytes can then mix with sebum to block the pores and form horn plugs and pimples. Bakuchiol works by scavenge free radicals and prevent oxidative damage to cells. It also maintains the skin barrier by binding to and neutralizing free radicals, preventing them from causing damage to cells. According to studies, Bakuchiol has 60 times more antioxidant power than squalene, which is a good natural plant extract antioxidant. Bakuchiol is a more fat-soluble antioxidant than vitamin E, which can effectively protect sebaceous fat from peroxidation, thus preventing excessive keratosis of hair follicles.

Bakuchiol——Favorite for sensitive skin, mild anti-inflammatory and antibacterial star

Human skin is often attached to a large number of bacteria, under normal circumstances, these bacteria participate in the maintenance of skin microecological balance, but when the skin is damaged, or skin microecological imbalance, will lead to various skin diseases. The inflammatory response of the human body requires the participation of inflammatory factors and the regulation of protein kinase. Bakuchiol can reduce the release of inflammatory mediators, thus achieving the anti-inflammatory effect.

Bakuchiol is also a potential antibacterial agent that can effectively inhibit methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, propionibacterium acnes and Mycobacterium acnes, and thus has a good therapeutic effect on skin acne. Bakuchiol has been shown to act on four major pathophysiological features of acne (including correcting altered follicular keratinization patterns; Reduced sebaceous gland activity; Reduce follicular bacteria population, especially propionibacterium acnes; Inhibit the production of extracellular inflammatory products by inhibiting microorganisms, thus producing anti-inflammatory effects). The results suggest that Bakuchiol can be used to supplement and/or enhance the efficacy of current anti-acne agents. In addition, the composition is non-irritating, does not present photostability or hydrolytic stability problems, and is easy to use.

Bakuchiol——Whitening star

Bakuchiol’s whitening effect is achieved by inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color. Bakuchiol does this by blocking tyrosinase, a key rate-limiting enzyme in melanin synthesis. Studies have shown that Bakuchiol has more obvious inhibitory effect on tyrosinase than arbutin in low concentration range, and has the potential to be a natural tyrosinase inhibitor. Bakuchiol also has antioxidant properties that help protect the skin from environmental damage and reduce inflammation. This helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and discoloration, resulting in a brighter, more even skin tone.
