|Medik8 Bakuchiol Peptides is an advanced serum that incorporates Phyto Retinol and Peptide Precursors to fight the signs of skin ageing.|
It promotes a more youthful complexion using a plant alternative to topical Vitamin A to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and peptide precursors to brighten the skin.
This serum is designed to improve skin firmness, texture using ingredients provided by nature.
Unlike Retinol, it’s soothing, calming and conditioning. This serum helps to visibly plump the skin and leave it feeling soft and smooth. The ingredients also provide antioxidant benefits and visibly calm inflammation and redness.
Medik8 Bakuchiol Peptides serum is the ultimate plant-based alternative for Vitamin A skin care products. It’s the ideal choice if your skin is irritated by Retinol, you’re pregnant or breast-feeding, or you prefer using a vegan anti-ageing serum.
Why Medik8 Bakuchiol Peptides?
The Medik8 Bakuchiol Peptides serum is a lightweight, oil-based serum that is soaked up the skin.
It harnesses the power of 1.25% Bakuchiol. This clinically proven active is a plant-based alternative to Retinol. Bakuchiol doesn’t have the same mechanism as Retinol and therefore there are no established concerns around using it during pregnancy and breast-feeding.
The serum is also enhanced with peptide precursors to enhance the skin’s clarity and radiance and Centella Asiatica or Cica. Centella Asiatica is a wonderful botanical extract that delivers multiple benefits for every skin type.
Unlike Retinol, Medik8 Bakuchiol Peptides is photostable and can be used morning and evening.
Medik8 Bakuchiol Peptides ingredients
The key ingredients are:
Bakuchiol is a clinically proven alternative to Retinol. At the molecular level, it has no structural resemblance to retinoids but delivers similar effects. A study in the British Journal of Dermatology found Bakuchiol to have anti-ageing effects similar to Retinol, but without the irritation. It can prevent and reverse the look of fine lines and discolourations. This results in skin that appears smoother and more even toned.
Peptide Precursors, which penetrate deeply due to the oil base, help create a brighter complexion with less visible hyperpigmentation. They minimise the Melanin Stimulating Hormone, leading to a visibly brighter and more even toned complexion.
Centella Asiatica is a wonderful natural anti-inflammatory that calms redness and speeds wound healing, as well as having anti-ageing properties.
Sacha Inchi Oil is naturally rich in skin essential Omegas 3, 6 and 9. These strengthen the skin barrier and improve its ability to lock in moisture. Sacha Inchi is one of the highest, organic sources of omegas among seeds.
False Daisy has potent antioxidant and skin-calming properties. It’s a non-fragrant plant that belongs to the sunflower family.
Turmeric contains the active Curcumin. It functions as an antioxidant and skin brightener. Additionally, it’s anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, and may also regulate sebum production.
Suits all skin types.
Can be used by those who are sensitive to Retinol and other retinoids.
Bakuchiol Peptides are considered safe to use during pregnancy and breast-feeding.
Pair Medik8 Bakuchiol Peptides serum with the Pestle & Mortar NMF Lactic Acid Toner to get your glow on. This toner has a Free Acid Value of 5.34% and pH of 3.5%. It gently resurfaces the skin, improves brightness and stimulates collagen synthesis. We love seeing these two together in a skin care routine.
