One of the most buzz-worthy ingredients in skincare, bakuchiol is taking the industry by storm, thanks to a recent study published in the British Journal of Dermatology. Hailed for its anti-ageing powers that are comparable to the gold standard, retinol, bakuchiol has been clinically proven to be a worthy (plant-based) alternative for vitamin A.
However, in true Medik8 style, we have taken bakuchiol to new heights with our latest peptide-infused innovation: Bakuchiol Peptides.
Designed to help promote a more youthful complexion, the lightweight, oil-based serum harnesses the gentle power of 1.25% pure bakuchiol. Bakuchiol Peptides’ powers are elevated further with brightening peptide precursors and calming centella asiatica, and can even be used both day and night, unlike traditional retinol.
Made For - Customers who are unable to use vitamin A; such as pregnant or nursing mothers*, those with sensitivities to vitamin A and those with extremely sensitive skin.
*Of course, due to ethical considerations the Bakuchiol Peptides formula has not been tested on pregnant women, but there is nothing in the formula which is known to be an issue (eg vitamin A or high levels of exfoliating acids). If you are at all concerned, always consult your doctor.
