Our skin; a true reflection of ourselves, meets countless elements every single day, adapting and evolving with every encounter. Isn’t it incredible how the world of skincare has transformed with a myriad of products boasting different ingredients? And, oh, the buzz around Retinol-containing products these days is simply electrifying! You can’t scroll through social media without spotting influencers raving about them. While Retinol has taken the beauty world by storm, it’s essential to be aware that its usage comes with a few concerns. With side effects like burning, stinging, peeling, irritation, redness, and dryness, it’s crucial to tread carefully and know what’s best for your skin type. But fear not, dear friends, for we’ve got you covered!
In this month’s NORMAG issue, we discussed what is Retinol, how it affects the skin in good and bad ways, and why we look for alternatives to it, and seeing Bakuchiol as an alternative. We looked at comparison studies by putting on our scientific language with a very serious attitude. We introduce Bakuchiol – the natural, effective, and inclusive solution for your skin’s needs! Derived from the seed of Psoralea corylifolia, Bakuchiol is a plant-based Retinol alternative that offers all the benefits without the harsh side effects. Its gentle yet powerful properties promote collagen regeneration, smoother and brighter skin, and improved tone and texture.
