Bakuchi (Babchi) Oil
Our organically crafted Bakuchi Oil, also called Babchi Oil, is cold-pressed from the exquisite black seeds of the Psoralea Corylifolia plant, native to Sri Lanka and India. With its dark red-brown colour and strong nutty aroma, Bakuchi Oil has since long been used in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for various skin problems.
Bakuchi oil is naturally rich in the antioxidant Bakuchiol. Bakuchiol has been touted to be the next alternative to Retinol. The benefits of Bakuchiol are very similar to those of Retinol but without the downsides of Retinol. This means that Bakuchiol can be used on sensitive skin and both morning and evening unlike Retinol which must be used overnight only due to its photo-sensitising effect on the skin
