• Retinol is the gold standard for anti-aging, particularly in regards to stimulating collagen and elastin synthesis to target wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, and loss of elasticity and firmness. Unfortunately, it may be too strong for those with sensitive, rosacea and eczema skin, while some people may also choose to avoid this active ingredient during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

    One of the few promising alternative ingredients is Bakuchiol, although being very different from retinol.

    Bakuchiol, is a botanical derived from the leaves and seeds of the Psoralea Corylifolia (Babchi) plant with meroterpene phenol as a major component that has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial benefits. It bears no structural resemblance with Retinoic Acid, and cannot fit into the Retinoic Acid receptor to trigger the same response in the skin. However, it is promising in stimulating the receptor nonetheless to boost production of collagen Type I, III and IV as well as elastin fibres. It also speeds up cell turnover. All these increases the skin's firmness and elasticity, smoothes out wrinkles and fine lines, evens skin tone, reduces hyperpigmentation, while minimizing the appearance of pores and treating acne.

    Marie Reynolds London Bakuchiol Complex Supercharger features 1% Bakuchiol, the maximum concentration recommended for use, in a base of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-aging, nourishing olive-derived squalane. Not only is it designed to help improve fine lines, wrinkles, elasticity, and firmness for all skin types, including sensitive, eczema and rosacea skin, as well as during pregnancy and breastfeeding, in addition to being anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, it also helps downregulate 5-alpha-reductase, an enzyme that increases excess oil production in the skin, and inhibits the growth of P.acnes bacteria, thereby preventing acne.

    The skin is thus restored and regenerated, and the lipid barrier strengthened.

    Formulated specifically to:

    1. Stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid
    2. Smooth wrinkles and fine lines
    3. Firm and increase elasticity
