Bakuchiol has proven its efficacy in treating acne, which is sometimes seen as a young person’s skin condition. At the same time this plant-derived substance has real value as an anti-aging therapy.
This is because of bakuchiol’s ability to combat the mitochondrial damage caused by oxidative stress, which accumulates over the years. Here’s what one study found:
Bakuchiol was also formulated into a finished skin care product and was tested in clinical case study by twice-a-day facial application. The results showed that, after 12 weeks treatment, significant improvement in lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, elasticity, firmness and overall reduction in photo-damage was observed, without usual retinol therapy-associated undesirable effects.
The last point is an important one. Retinol (Vitamin A) is known to provide anti-aging benefits when applied to the skin. Unfortunately, it is also associated with side effects such as skin irritation and sensitivity to light – which are pretty serious caveats for a skin care product.
That’s why we specify bakuchiol in Ao Repair and Ao Rewind. You receive the anti-aging benefits with fewer risks of unwanted side effects.
