Bakuchiol - The Not so New Buzzword in Anti Ageing Skincare

Bakuchiol - The Not so New Buzzword in Anti Ageing Skincare

You always know when an ingredient is HOT


It's when you start to see it added to all the big commercial brands and featured in their multi million dollar marketing campaigns.

Bakuchiol Oil

Hyaluronic Acid has been hot for the last few years and for good reason, the newest ingredient to find its way into mainstream is Bakuchiol Oil.

It's important to remember that ethical clean brands like Wildcrafted Organics have been using this incredible ingredient for a while now and at the right volume to get the results.  Recommended volume is 0.5 -1%.

Wildcrafted Organics is one of our best selling brands and their Bakuchiol Oil Serum is one of the best I have ever used.


Why is it so HOT right now?

Well Sytenol A aka Bakuchiol Oil has shown similar effects to the skin as Retinal but without the sensitivity.  Specifically effective in targeting lines, wrinkles and firmness. The added benefit is that  Bakuchiol is 100% natural and derived from the plant seed.

Here are the studies:

Watch out for the Classic Green Wash:

As this oil is now an "IT" ingredient, get ready for it to be splashed in products, along with plenty of other ingredients - potentially not so clean, slapped onto labels and sprukked in marketing campaigns.  Which is not necessarily a bad thing, but alway check where the ingredients is on the ingredient list, as an active it should be high up - not the last ingredient and you don't want it back with things like synthetic fragrance, fillers or preservatives.



Yes this ingredient is definitely worth the $$ but remember you get what you pay for. So as you start seeing the ingredient pop up on big mainstream brands,  you want make sure you are getting enough of the active ingredient around 1% and in the case of Wildcrafted no nasties only more amazing ingredient like vitamin c to Co Q10 and a blend of skin loving oils which give you even more anti aging benefits.


We also have La Mav Bakuchiol serum and Simple as That Bakuchiol Serum both amazing - I have used them both.
