    Ingredients list

    Have been using this product for a while, and it does not seem to have any negative effect nor any enhancing add-on to my current skincare routine.

    However, I'm confused on the babchi/bakuchiol element in the ingredient list. It does not seem to be present, the main ingredient being Aloe Vera extract.......

    Hi There, Thank you for your feedback! Bakuchiol is prominently listed with the scientific name on the ingredient list as the 4th ingredient (Psoralea Corylifolia seed extract) Sorry for any confusion!

    Results

    I’m so glad I found this! I’ve been using it for a few months and have seen my wrinkles reduced and overall improvement in skin tone and brightness. Great retinol alternative as I have sensitive skin and live in a very sunny climate. I may switch to moon fruit though as I received a sample and I did notice my face was better hydrated with that one.
