This compound is a hot topic in skin care at the moment. “Based on this data, we propose that bakuchiol can function as an anti-aging compound through retinol-like regulation of gene expression.” A meroterpene phenol, which is extracted from the seeds and leaves of the Psoralea corylifolia plant has been found to work as a "functional analogue of retinol" (a synthetic vitamin A used in skincare for its anti-aging properties) without the associated side effects.

"My skin felt soothed, nourished, and hydrated. After a few weeks of use I actually noticed a difference in my very dry skin. I do think it is worth the investment."
