Bakuchiol is mainly obtained from the seed of Psoralea Corylifolia plant. It is a well-known traditional Chinese medicine, commonly used as a remedy for bone fractures, osteomalacia (soft bones) and osteoporosis (a condition where bone strength weakens and is susceptible to fracture), hence the name Bu Gu Zhi (补骨脂) in Chinese, which if translated literally, means ‘bone repairing’.

Bakuchiol possesses antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacteria properties. Amazingly, despite having no structural resemblance to retinol (vitamin A), Bakuchiol was found to have retinol functionality through retinol-like regulation of gene expression. In 2018, a randomised, double-blind, 12-week clinical study with 44 volunteers demonstrated that Bakuchiol is comparable with retinol in its ability to improve photo-aging, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation but has a much better skin tolerance.


Bakuchiol is used in the following Bemora products:
