These plant based retinols can improve the firmness and elasticity of your skin and has powerful anti aging properties.

We chose these incredible ingredients because believe in nourishing and replenishing oily skin - rather than irritating it or drying it out!

Why are plant based retinols better than synthetic retinols?

Think retinol without the side effects: no redness, irritation, increased sun sensitivity

Synthetic retinols can work but they also contain a ton of side effects like dry, flaky, peeling skin. If you have sensitive skin it can also cause redness or itchiness which can actually damage your skin barrier. It also makes your skin very sensitive in the sun so wearing a high SPF is key but may not be enough to protect you from experiencing skin inflammation or stinging.

What is bakuchiol?

Bakuchiol can boost collagen production while working as an anti-inflammatory and as an antioxidant. It doesn’t have the same irritating side effects as traditional retinol so even those with dry or sensitive skin can use it without worry

Bakuchiol also is anti bacterial which is helpful for oily or acne prone skin. Since bakuchiol is very stable you can use it with other products in your skincare routine without any negative interactions.

What is moth bean? 

This drought resistance plant is native to India and Pakistan and produces protein rich seed pods are antioxidant-rich and help kickstart collagen production. You can already find this vegan retinol in our Fullmoon Serum since it does such an excellent job of combatting the signs of aging and leaving you with a youthful and glowy complexion.
