Thoughtfully crafted, our Nature's Retinol Facial Serum contains a blend of certified organic borage oil, milk thistle seed oil, concentrated botanical extracts and bakuchiol (nature's retinol). These natural and organic compounds work synergistically to delay the visible signs of aging and are proven to have wrinkle-fighting properties resulting in reduced surface area wrinkles and the creation of new collagen.

The Babchi (Bakuchi) plant is of immense biological importance as it is naturally rich in the powerful antioxidant, Bakuchiol. The benefits of Bakuchiol are very similar to those of Retinol but without the downsides. Unlike Retinol, Bakuchiol is photochemically and hydrolytically stable and can be used during the day.

Bakuchiol is known to reduce the appearance of fine lines and face wrinkles by stimulating collagen production. It also helps improve uneven skin tone by reducing pigmentation and promoting skin elasticity and firmness. Bakuchiol is also useful for acne prone skin as it prevents the process of lipid peroxidation in the skin's sebum by keeping the acid mantle active. This reduces the overproduction of bacteria on the skin's surface and reduces the keratinization of cells.

Bakuchiol is the first natural alternative to Retinol without having any of the negatives associated with retinol. Bakuchiol modulates retinoid-binding and metabolizing genes. It significantly improves multiple dermal and dermo-epidermal junction genes/proteins. Bakuchiol stimulates Collagen I, III and IV and is clinically proven to reduce multiple signs of aging, including roughness and dryness, fine lines and wrinkles and improvement in skin tone, elasticity and firmness, increasing radiance and brightness.

Bakuchiol is an effective treatment for vitiligo and related skin diseases and conditions. It shrinks white spots on skin and reduces pigmentation. Bakuchiol may also have a suppressive effect on melanin-producing cells in skin, which may make it a beneficial ingredient to lighten dark spots or improve uneven skin tone due to sun damage.

Bakuchiol has been shown to activate chemical pathways in skin cells that ultimately lead to improved collagen production, decreased collagen breakdown and reduction of melanin (pigment) synthesis. The overall net effect seems to be an improvement in fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation which are commonly associated with the natural aging process of the skin.

Bakuchiol is likely the only agent after retinoic acid (Retinol) shown to be effective against multiple pathophysiologic features of acne.

White Lupine (seed) Extract (lupeol) is designed to stimulate the synthesis of a high-quality collagen to increase elasticity and firmness in the skin and help to lift the facial contour. Lupeol is extracted from the coatings of White Lupine seeds cultivated using sustainable agricultural practices in France. Once extracted, the lupeol is solubilized in oleic Sunflower oil and then semi-refined and stabilized by adding natural α-tocopherol, a form of vitamin E that is preferentially absorbed and accumulated in the skin. Lupine is a legume whose seeds are very high in protein and contain secondary oil and minor biologically active components A study that included 25 volunteers, ages 45- to 65-years-old, tested a lotion with lupeol for 89 days. 92% of the volunteers noticed improved firmness of the skin and 72% noticed reduced sagging of the facial contour.

Rosemary Extract has been shown to improve the quality of the skin while also healing blemishes and increasing the natural shine and hydrated appearance. Rosemary has also been known to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, protect the immune system, stimulate circulation, detoxify the body, protect the body from bacterial infections and prevent premature aging.

Borage oil has been shown to decrease inflammation and improve overall skin health. It contains high amounts of gamma linolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid that’s integral to the structure and function of your skin. It also boasts anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which can help promote wound healing and repair your skin’s natural barrier. 

Milk Thistle Seed Oil is suitable for sensitive skin, skin suffering from chronic inflammatory disorders, psioriasis, constitutional dermatisis and acne. Milk Thistle Seed Oil is an excellent source of Silymarin, a complex of bioactive compounds of flavonolignans, including Silibinin, Silidianin, and Silicristin that are known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Milk Thistle Oil is ideal for hydrating and soothing dry or acne-prone skin that is irritated, inflamed, calloused and rough, making it ideal for addressing conditions such as dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. It helps improve the skin's complexion and addresses texture issues and scarring on the face and body, reducing the look of cellulite, stretch marks, wrinkles and loose skin. The flavonolignans, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, help alleviate damage from the harsh sun.

Sunflower Seed oil is rich in vitamins A, D & E, as well as essential fatty acids, imparting powerful moisturizing and soothing properties.
