Bakuchiol. Funny to say (BA-KOO-CHI-OL), this plant-based retinol alternative tops our Alpyn Crush list for its anti-aging properties. A key ingredient in our Melt Moisturizer and Line-Filling Eye Balm, bakuchiol is a compound that functions similarly to retinol, without the dryness, irritation and sun-sensitivity that many people experience with retinol.
Did we mention it's plant-based? Bakuchiol is derived from psoralea corylifolia plant (shown above), so it's natural and vegan too.
