Medik8 Bakuchiol Peptides Serum 30ml
A Retinol Alternative Peptide-Infused Serum. Discover the ultimate plant-based, anti-ageing alternative for vitamin A. Designed to help promote a more youthful complexion, this lightweight, oil-based serum harnesses the gentle power of 1.25% pure bakuchiol. Brightening peptide precursors penetrate the skin with ease, blocking the production of pigment in the skin, resulting in a visibly brighter, more even complexion with less hyperpigmentation and reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Suitable for those who cannot tolerate or use retinol, including when pregnant or nursing.
- Bakuchiol is a clinically proven alternative to retinol; while molecularly it has no structural resemblance to retinoids, a recent study by the British Journal of Dermatology has found that bakuchiol is comparable to retinol in anti-ageing effects, and is better tolerated than retinol. It is the perfect alternative for those who cannot use vitamin A. Able to prevent and restore premature ageing, it helps to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Bakuchiol’s ability to minimise melanin synthesis is combined with blocking the inflammatory pathways within the skin, resulting in a visibly calmed and even skin tone.
Brightening peptide precursors penetrate the skin with ease, blocking the production of pigment in the skin, resulting in a visibly brighter, more even complexion with less hyperpigmentation.
Centella asiatica helps to stimulate the production of collagen and is perfect for visibly soothing and calming inflamed, sensitive skin.
Inka omega oil is rich in omegas 3, 6 and 9, and is able to slip into the gaps in the stratum corneum to restore the skin's natural barrier and block moisture loss. While bakuchiol naturally has short-term photostability, meaning it can be used day and night, the formula has also been optimised for true long-term photostability; contained in a UV-protected glass bottle and infused with photo-stabiliser krameria triandra root extract within the formula.
After cleansing in the morning and evening, massage 6 drops of Bakuchiol Peptides across the face, neck and décolletage.
