Garden of Wisdom

Super Bakuchiol Serum


Suitable for Vegetarians


Garden of Wisdom Super Bakuchiol Serum is a natural, non-irritating, effective alternative to vitamin A retinol and retinoids which enhances collagen production and helps to dramatically reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles for even the most sensitive skin. A proven, gentle retinol alternative, Bakuchiol anti-ageing face serum also provides antioxidant protection and helps calm inflammation.

What does it do:

Bakuchiol is a plant derived, natural alternative to vitamin A. Derived from the seeds of the Ayurvedic plant, Psoralea corylifolia, Bakuchiol has been found to enhance collagen production, provide antioxidant protection and help calm inflammation, often the cause of acne and rosacea. It also helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, improve the appearance of pigmentation and photo-damage and increase the skins elasticity and firmness, while sealing in hydration. All without causing irritation on the skin such as peeling, dryness and sensitivity associated with retinol.

Garden of Wisdom’s Bakuchiol Serum is teamed with the skin softening properties of pure Squalane Oil to deliver rejuvenated, plumper, softer and smoother skin

The Science:

Sytenol® A, Bakuchiol Oil, represents the gold standard and is REACH registered through extensive safety testing and performance. This high purity and quality oil has been the subject of various clinical studies.

A study carried out by Syntheon using 0.5% Sytenol® A, Bakuchiol Oil, showed a significant improvement in lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, elasticity, firmness and photo-damage without irritation on the skin such as peeling, dryness and sensitivity associated with retinol.

Super Bakuchiol Serum, unlike most other Bakuchiol or Babchi Oils, contains 100% well-defined 1% Bakuchiol Oil without any photosensitisers often found in many other Bakuchiol products.

The Summary:

Bakuchiol benefits:
• A highly effective, natural, plant-based alternative to retinol
• Enhances cell turnover to reveal softer, smoother skin
• Suitable for sensitive skin
• Enhances the production of collagen to combat the signs of ageing
• Calms inflammation and provides antioxidant protection
• Unlike retinol, Super Bakuchiol does not cause sun sensitivity


Bakuchiol pH is 5.9 - 6.2

Our In-Store Pharmacist has written an article about Super Bakuchiol Serum:
Bakuchiol, A Natural Alternative To Retinol

Directions: Use this anti-ageing face serum AM and PM after cleansing and after the use of other serums. Alternatively, add a sufficient amount of Garden of Wisdom Super Bakuchiol Serum to your favourite skin care cream or moisturiser and apply to face and neck. Although Sytenol® A Bakuchiol does not contain any photosensitisers, we would nevertheless recommend the use of an SPF during the day.
