UK skincare manufacturer Medik8 has launched a new retinol alternative peptide-infused serum, Bakuchiol Peptides.
Daniel Isaacs, director of research at Medik8, said, “Bakuchiol has been on our radar for some time now as a fantastic retinol alternative. We currently use it in our Calmwise range, but we wanted to create a dedicated bakuchiol product for those who this ingredient is beneficial for. Some people can’t use retinoids (the family name for vitamin A and its derivatives) including pregnant and nursing mothers, or those with extremely sensitive skin. Bakuchiol Peptides gives these customers an alternative to vitamin A.”
