Gentle enough for the most sensitive skin types, and even pregnant women, Bakuchiol works both below the skin with its retinoic effect and above the skin with ultra-gentle, exfoliating Polyhydroxy Acids (PHAs) to refine the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with the power of natural botanicals.
The uniquely bouncy, jelly-textured water-based serum spreads smoothly over skin, instantly providing hydration and leaving skin silky soft. Pair with your favorite Herbivore facial oil for perfect skin alchemy. We recommend Phoenix Facial Oil for the ultimate deep renewal duo.
Scent: Unscented, slight natural Babchi plant scent
Texture: Bouncy, jelly-like water-based serum
Color: Light purple naturally hued from a blend of 100% natural botanicals including Babchi, Turmeric, Holy Basil, Basil, and Eggplant Extracts.
Derived from the Ayurvedic Babchi plant, Bakuchiol is a 100% natural, non-irritating retinol alternative. The Babchi flower flaunts a magical purple hue that occurs rarely in the botanical world. Bakuchiol harnesses this purple power to smooth fine lines and wrinkles while sealing in hydration.

Bakuchiol (4%) is a botanical ingredient derived from the Ayurvedic Babchi plant that functions similarly to retinol sans redness and irritation, smoothing signs of fine lines and wrinkles to refine skin’s overall appearance.
PHAs (Polyhydroxy Acids) (1%) are gentle exfoliators that resurface skin to enhance absorption while strengthening skin by providing hydration and antioxidant benefits.
The superfood Tremella Mushroom helps to hydrate skin and retain moisture with its ability to hold up to 500 times its own weight in water.
Blueberry Stem Cells provide vital antioxidants that help strengthen skin against environmental damage from free radicals, a leading cause of visible signs of premature aging.
Metaphysically, Amethyst emits peaceful vibrations and balances its surrounding energies. Amethyst Extract brings harmonizing benefits to increase your inner and outer beauty
