Perfect for Expecting & Nursing Mums
A clinically proven alternative to retinol that is ideal for those that can’t use vitamin A – e.g. when pregnant or nursing* as it is not recommended during this time.
Bakuchiol Peptides can be used both day and night, for accelerated visible anti-ageing results.
How It Works
Bakuchiol is a clinically proven alternative to retinol; while molecularly it has no structural resemblance to retinoids, a recent study by the British Journal of Dermatology has found that bakuchiol is comparable to retinol in anti-ageing effects, and is better tolerated than retinol (read our blog to find out more). Containing 1.25% pure bakuchiol, Bakuchiol Peptides is the perfect alternative for those who cannot use vitamin A.
Bakuchiol is able to stimulate collagen and elastin production within the skin, while blocking the inflammatory pathways within the skin. This can result in a visible calmed, even and youthful-looking complexion.
Brightening peptide precursors penetrate the skin with ease, blocking the overproduction of pigment in the skin, resulting in a visibly brighter, more even complexion with less visible hyperpigmentation.
Centella asiatica helps to stimulate the production of collagen and is perfect for visibly soothing and calming inflamed, sensitive skin.
Inka omega oil is rich in omegas 3, 6 and 9, and is able to slip into the gaps in the stratum corneum to restore the skin’s natural barrier and block moisture loss.
While bakuchiol naturally has short-term photostability, meaning it can be used day and night, the formula has also been optimised for true long-term photostability; contained in a UV-protected glass bottle and infused with photo-stabiliser krameria triandra root extract within the formula.
