We are pleased to bring a new addition to our product-line... 100% Pure Bakuchiol. This product contains no additives.
WHAT IS BAKUCHIOL?
Coming from the Babchi plant (Psoralea corylifolia) it is primarily found in India. We sourced directly from India from the processing plant.
The Oil comes from cold pressing the seeds and leaves of the babchi plant and is reddish-brown in color. It is very emollient. Once pressed, it is filtered to remove particles from the seeds and leaves. It has an earthy, natural smell. Since this is an all-natural vegan product, batches may vary slightly.
Bakuchiol has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine... in fact It's medicinal properties have been well documented. But, it's cosmetic benefits weren't really known until the 1960s. The most recent study in 2019, published in the British Journal of Dermatology, tested 0.5 percent, twice a day for 12 weeks. It was proven to "significantly decrease" wrinkle surface area.

Our Bakuchiol is a topical skincare product that should NEVER BE USED AT FULL STRENGTH. Bakuchiol is very strong and, while most of you won't feel any sensation at all, it does has the ability to burn/blister some skin types. This is rare and can be avoided by always mixing with another oil or cream.
From our product line, the Bakuchiol mixes nicely with a non-acid oil (Argan Oil and Triple Stem Cell Serum are very compatible), non-acid moisturizers (Peptide Serum w/Botanicals, Advanced Hyaluronic Serum) are also good choices. Or use any non-acid moisturizer or facial oil you already have in your skincare arsenal.
We are offering our Bakuchiol in a 15 ml bottle with screw-on-cap. An eyedropper will be included with each bottle, along with a small mixing cup and stirrer for your convenience.
HOW TO MIX:
ALWAYS PATCH-TEST BEFORE USING ON THE ENTIRE FACE.
Pump a small amount of your "base" serum or cream into the cup and add 2-3 drops of Bakuchiol. Close the Bakuchiol before mixing your cream or serum using the screw-on-cap. We want to keep your oil fresh and potent with as little exposure to the air as possible. When you are finished with the dropper, rinse it thoroughly and store for the next use. Do not store your Bakuchiol with the dropper cap, as the rubber top could degrade.
Mix your batch thoroughly. Then patch test behind your ear and also on your wrist. Wait 24 hours. There should be "no" reaction to your mixture... if there is, however (redness or small bump) make sure you didn't add too much Bakuchiol. Try using less and do another patch test when the irritation has cleared.
Once you've found your ideal mixture, begin using on your face neck and decollete at night. Mix per the above instructions, then pat the mixture into your skin... if you have too much, use the remaining mixture on your hands and elbows. Safe to use a.m. and p.m.
STORAGE AND SHELF-LIFE:
Unopened, your Bakuchiol from this initial batch is potent until February 2022. Once you've opened it, try to use it within a year. This is why we're packaging the full strength in smaller bottles. It should stay fresh for the entire use.
Store in a cool, dry place. Do not expose to sunlight nor humidity. Do not refrigerate.
Our expectations are, that within a couple of weeks (hopefully sooner) you'll see very distinct, positive changes to your skin. We stand behind all of our products, so if you have any issues please contact us and be assured we will make-it-right for you... always.
A FINAL NOTE:
We will be offering a pre-mixed product very soon, but we know that many of you enjoy adjusting the strength of your products... and we thought this would be a great product to experiment with to find the ratio of oil-to-base for your best, glowing self.
