Bakuchiol originates from the seeds of the Psoralea corylifolia plant, commonly known as the "babchi" plant. It has been an integral part of Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. Unlike its retinol counterpart, bakuchiol is a natural compound that offers similar benefits without the associated sensitivity and irritation often experienced with retinol use.
Recognizing the potential of bakuchiol, Korean skincare brands have swiftly integrated this powerhouse ingredient into their formulations. Bakuchiol can be found in various products, including serums, creams, and masks, catering to different skin types and concerns.
