Brand new vitamin A alternative serum launched

05 Aug 2020

UK skincare manufacturer Medik8 has launched a new retinol alternative peptide-infused serum, Bakuchiol Peptides.

The company explains that the product is formulated with 1.25% pure bakuchiol, peptides and cica extract, which together aim to rejuvenate the skin and help with fine lines and wrinkles.

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.”
