Want to use Retinol, but are unable to due to the peeling, stinging, and irritation?

Try Bakuchiol! Naturally sourced from the Psoralea corylifolia seed, it is know as nature's retinol. Studies have been done comparing the two ingredients: recently, the "British Journal of Dermatology (2019) clinically assessed the anti-aging effects of 0.5% bakuchiol applied topically twice a day against 0.5% retinol applied topically once a day in a 12-week study. "The authors evaluated wrinkles, pigmentation and monitored adverse effects. Results from this study showed that retinol and bakuchiol both significantly decreased the appearance of fine lines and pigmentation, and also improved the appearance of hyperpigmentation after 12 weeks, The study also found there was statistically significant scaling and stinging reported by testers using the retinol product." 


Basically, bakuchiol does what retinol does, minus the irritation and sun sensitivity. Count us in!

After cleansing, try using our Peony Perfection serum and then layering on this Bakuchiol Boost for a hydration-rich anti-aging punch.


Ingredient Highlights:


**Bakuchiol: Is a plant-derived terpenophenol compound that’s been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, similar to those of retinol. Like retinol, bakuchiol works to turn over skin cells, making room for newer, fresher, better-appearing cells to come to the top. It also pushes collagen (a skin-strengthening protein) to the surface for more elastic, youthful-looking skin


**Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is a very stable, oil-soluble Vitamin C ester. Studies have shown it to stimulate collagen production as well as clarifying and brightening the skin by inhibiting melanogenesis (the production of pigment) thereby promoting a more even skin tone. Unlike ascorbic acid, it will not exfoliate or irritate skin.


**Chia Seed Oil: Is anti-inflammatory, calming and antioxidant rich, which means that it is a good bet for restoring vital moisture, diminishing redness and inhibiting wrinkles. Chia oil has the highest natural omega-3 content of any carrier oil.  
*Lupine Extract* Contains lupeol which stimulates the synthesis of a high-quality collagen to increase skin elasticity and firmness.


**Rosehip Seed OIl: A popular anti-aging oil, it contains natural antioxidants in the form of tocopherols and carotenoids and is rich in essential fatty acids, specifically oleic, palmitic, linoleic and gamma linolenic acid. This oils is what gives the serum it's cheery bright orange color!
**Helio Carrot Root Extract: The combination of beta-carotene plus Vitamin A and E in this extract is ideal for skin care. Wondrous for dry, chafed and inflamed skin, Helio Carrot Root oil is also said to promote building new skin cells making it splendid in anti-aging skin care. 


 **Squalane:  Occurs naturally in the skin's lipid layers, it prevents transepidermal water loss (TEWL) while restoring the skin's suppleness and flexibility.


**Cucumber Seed Oil: Is an extraordinarily beneficial oil rich in phytosterols, tocopherols, tocotrienols, and fatty acids that is remarkable for mature skin, promotes the reduction of wrinkles and is an excellent addition in anti-aging formulations.

Bakuchiol Boost Facial Oil - Vitamin C, Squalane, Chia Seed

  • "An absolute miracle worker! The first time I used it, it looked like my pores totally disappeared over night, along with these pesky little bumps I'd been dealing with on one cheek. My skin was glowing, with none of the irritation you get from synthetic retinols. I never want to be without this. It also smells amazing!"


    "I really like the products of this shop. I just ordered a few other items directly from the CutTheCrapOrganics web site. I have only used this serum for a few days, and I plan on staying with it until used up, results seem promising!"



    This facial oil smells wonderful and feels great on the skin. Love it! Thank you for the great customer service, samples and quick delivery. Everything is sent with love and appreciation. I love purchasing high quality goods from excellent businesses like this one."
