DoSe By VH


Suitable for Vegans


Super Bakuchiol Serum by DoSe contains Sytenol® A, a patented Bakuchiol oil which is a natural, non-irritating, effective retinol alternative. Bakuchiol is the anti-ageing serum with benefits which include enhancing collagen production and preventing or softening fine lines and wrinkles.

Bakuchiol, also known as Bakuchi Oil or Babchi, is a plant-derived, natural alternative to retinol derived from the seeds of the Psoralea Corylifolia plant. Bakuchiol benefits skin due to its ability to enhance collagen production, increase cell turnover and provide antioxidant protection, giving you softer, smoother, plumper skin with fewer lines and wrinkles just like retinol without inflammation.

Bakuchiol serum's benefits for skin are also due to its ability to calm spots and redness-prone skin, help reduce the appearance of pigmentation problems, photo-damage and seal in hydration. Bakuchiol oil does not cause peeling, dryness or increased sun sensitivity associated with retinol use.

Unlike other Bakuchiol products, Super Bakuchiol Face serum contains Sytenol® A, a Bakuchiol Oil that 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. Super Bakuchiol Serum (unlike most other Bakuchiol or Babchi Oils) contains 100% well-defined 1% Bakuchiol Oil without any photosensitisers.

Does DoSe by VH replace Garden of Wisdom?
DoSe by VH is a natural evolution of Garden of Wisdom and we are confident that the DoSe by VH products will exceed your expectations, delivering a heightened level of quality and efficacy.  The DoSe serums and oils have been meticulously formulated, and in some cases reformulated by Shabir Daya MRPharmS, our co-founder who originally formulated GOW.  While some formulations share the same INCI, we searched for and incorporated the optimal iterations of each, guaranteeing an enhanced quality.  Not all ingredients are created equally and developments in formulations can change.  It gave us the opportunity to better our offer for our customers who have previously loved GOW.  We listened to the feedback from our customers regarding GOW and the bottles are now glass, which means they are also waterproof for the bathroom.  We believe in constant improvement and staying at the forefront of skincare innovation.
