Although it's been used in Ayurvedic treatments for centuries, this botanical ingredient is a relatively new kid on the block in the western skincare world- and it's been described as a game-changer.
A double-blind study of volunteers using either bakuchiol or retinol found that both groups saw a significant reduction in wrinkle surface area and hyperpigmentation, with no statistical difference between the two compounds. However, the retinol group reported more scaling and stinging. (Source: British Journal of Dermatology)
There is only one type of clinically proven bakuchiol under the trade name Sytenol®. We've sourced our Bakuchiol directly from the official supplier - Sytheon - and we use 1%, which is the recommended amount for best results.
Press 2-3 drops of Bakuchiol Antioxidant Oil onto skin after application of thin water-based serums. Or mix a few drops with your moisturiser. Use AM and PM for best results.
Keep away from direct sunlight. Store the bottle in a cool, dark place. Use within six months of opening.

I've been really enjoying this oil for the last few weeks. After using a different brand it's nice to compare. This is obviously going to be oily but compared to the other brand this is a lot less greasy and I think it sinks in faster. It also leaves a nice sheen on my skin and seems to layer well. I'm 31 with normal/combination skin, I have wrinkles starting to show up so I really want to try and keep them at bay. I use this twice a day and I can't say if it is working yet but I believe it takes months for results to show but I have noticed the links under my eyes are less noticeable and is much more hydrated and it hasn't broken me out at all. There is also no scent or fragrance if that is important to you. What I really love is that you can get a refill option and reuse the dropper for a pound less. This brand is just awesome, I tried the sunscreen tester which seems like a winner as well!
I have only been using this for a few days so difficult to review.
However, it applies well, doesn’t have an overly in your face odor, so happy to continue using.
Overall great product. No complaints. I got this to use daily as a milder form of retinol to use as it’s getting sunnier. It keeps and makes my skin overall clear. I’ve got quite oily skin and it makes my skin kinda oily, but I just use it in the evening. It’s not as oily as other bakuchiol products with squalane so will repurchase this.
I’m so happy that I stumbled on the brand as I love everything I’ve tried so far but this and the Illume serum are my favourite. I’ve been using this for several weeks now and my skin loves it, and is particularly noticeable on my previously rather tired looking 40 year old past sun stressed chest area! Lovely lightweight oil I layer at the end of my routine and it’s just beautiful. No pilling, just gorgeous. I put it on my hands too and my nails are also loving it... I literally can’t fault it. Love the brand, love the products, the simplicity, the few ingredients and they are effective.
I became a convert from the first time I used this, I think this is great value and well suited to sensitive skin. Have more recently bought a trial size to give as a gift as I know people tend to be cautious about switching products...but I think once you tried it would convert most people
I have good skin, well had good skin..and apart from a slick of Nivea in my youth was a soap and water girl! I know! Hit my 50's and things changed... I spent a fortune...yes a fortune and loads of time sitting feeling intimidated in department stores being splodged with something expensive that I felt obliged to buy and NONE of it worked! I didn't know what to do. So, after seeing Kri on Facebook I messaged their team and they not only replied but gave me advice and I took the plunge..animal cruelty free, Vegan, refills, good ethics, natural products, information, wonderful reviews, helpful and friendly customer service.... and wow.... I've got my good skin back, and maybe even better... I can't recommend these products highly enough, and I only purchase refills twice a year they are so good and I use them everyday. I use Hydrate serum, Timeless Moisturiser and Bakuchiol oil and recently Bakuchiol with Vit C. I'm going to try the Eye cream next! There is points system and and Insiders clubs, all the points help out! I don't do Luxury products.....but this is probably the most I spend on anything 'cosmetic' and definitely the most worthwhile! Congratulations Kri and thank you!
I love this oil. It's light, easily absorbed, works well under day moisturiser and then make up, and the bottle has lasted me a few months. I use about 5 drops each morning (although some days I use Kri rosehip oil instead, which is also lovely to use) and this is a good amount for face and neck. This oil helps my skin look brighter, even in the dull UK winter - I will buy again. I have normal to slightly dry skin.
A couple years ago I started to get painful breakouts, largely around jaw- think they are hormonal. This is the only thing I found that made them better and prevented more without drying the skin. Can’t recommend highly enough
