Why Bakuchiol is the New Alternative to Retinoids

I began using a serum containing bakuchiol about a year ago in an attempt to help ease the redness and irritation effects I was experiencing from most of the retinoid products I used. When Euro Botanicals added our plant based Vitamin A Serum and Creme I eagerly added those to my arsenal.
