The Science of Nature Bakuchiol has powerful anti-ageing benefits, as well as improving the appearance of UV related skin damage, and is known for being a natural alternative to Retinol. A 12 week clinical trial conducted by The University of California Davis and published in the British Journal of Dermatology, which compared the effects of both bakuchiol and retinol on a selection of volunteers. The results showed that bakuchiol performed similarly to retinol in significantly decreasing wrinkles and hyperpigmentation in the skin when applied in a cream, as well as reporting that it showed less skin irritation and less side effects when compared to retinol.
Organic Shea Butter is non-comedogenic, allowing the skin to breathe whilst delivering moisturisation and a notably high concentration of vitamin F. More commonly known as linoleic acid, vitamin F is an essential omega-6 fatty acid which helps to maintain the water permeability of the skin, in turn enhancing hydration, suppleness and smoothness. This makes the ingredient perfect for dry and dehydrated skin, however evidence also suggests that increased levels of linoleic acid in the skin surface can assist in reducing the severity of acne. Shea Butter also contains a group of natural plant compounds known as phytosterols, revered for their regenerative properties.
Organic Coco Butter is rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, able to restore and protect the skin from things such as UV damage and environmental stressors, and as a natural emollient moisturiser, is especially beneficial for dry and chapped skin.
Apply evenly to clean skin morning and/or night. This cream can also be applied to the neck and decollatage.
