Research shows that bakuchiol and retinol work even better together. Plant-derived bakuchiol is one of a few ingredients that can stabilize retinol, allowing it to work more effectively and for longer, even at a lower concentration. The addition of peptides helps to stimulate and strengthen skin to visibly combat sagging.

2020 AskMen Grooming Award, Best Anti-Aging Treatment

Moderate-strength retinol and a 2% strength of plant-derived bakuchiol work with firming peptides to deliver multi-level repair and rejuvenation. It quickly targets fine lines, deep wrinkles, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores and rough texture for youthful-looking skin.

Limit initial use to three times per week; gradually increase frequency to every evening as tolerated. Apply 1-2 pumps over face and neck, avoiding contact with eyes, eyelids and lips. Follow with moisturizer. During the day, finish with a sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

First bottle

Have been using for almost 2 months and it didn’t break my skin at all. I don’t have major skin problem but sometimes one or two acne. Pairing retinol and VC does help in lightening the acne scar faster.

Wonderful product

This is my third bottle, very gentle, never break me out or sensitise my skin. I started incorporating retinol into my routine after I turn 30, while there are many retinol products out there I always seem to gravitate to this one. As usual PC products are packed with good stuff. There is vitamin C peptides and Bakuchiol in this formula. It has a lovely texture as well. I do not have pressing skin issues at the moment, so I can’t see weather it improves fine lines and wrinkles because I don’t have them, but I do notice that Skin is very smooth and glowing and my white heads and black heads have reduce
