A moisturizing retinol-alternative serum to visibly brighten the complexion and soften the signs of skin aging. Suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive.
- KEY BENEFITS
- The lightweight daily serum harnesses the gentle power of 1.25% pure bakuchiol to help promote a visibly illuminated, smooth complexion.
- The complexion is left soft, moisturized, and visibly radiant. Fine lines and wrinkles are visibly smoothed, and the appearance of texture is refined.
- KEY INGREDIENTS
- Bakuchiol, Brightening Peptide Precursors, Centella Asiatica and Inka Omega Oil
A trial published in the British Journal of Dermatology has clinically proven that plant-based molecule bakuchiol can show results comparable to retinol.
Formulated using 1.25% pure bakuchiol with brightening peptide precursors and cica extract, Bakuchiol Peptides has the gentle power to soften visible skin aging concerns and brighten the appearance of the skin.
Use Day & Night
The silky, nourishing oil texture can be used both day and night, leaving skin soft, moisturized, and visibly radiant.
Vitamin A Alternative
Bakuchiol is an ideal alternative to retinol, perfect for those who can't use vitamin A - eg when pregnant or nursing* as vitamin A it is not recommended during this time. The oil-based serum can be used to complete an efficacious skincare routine at any stage of life.
* Of course, due to ethical considerations the Bakuchiol Peptides formula has not been tested on pregnant women, but there are no ingredients in the formula which are known to be an issue (eg vitamin A or high levels of exfoliating acids). If you are at all concerned, always consult your doctor.
How It Works
Bakuchiol is a clinically proven alternative to retinol; while molecularly it has no structural resemblance to retinoids, a recent study by the British Journal of Dermatology has found that bakuchiol offers comparable results to ordinary retinol, while being more tolerable on skin. It works to visibly smooth texture, even tone and promote an illuminated complexion.
Brightening peptide precursors work to visibly brighten the skin and deliver a more even-looking complexion.
There are some types of customers who are unable to use vitamin A; such as pregnant and nursing mothers*, those with sensitivities to vitamin A and those with extremely sensitive skin. Bakuchiol is an alternative to vitamin A to complete a customer’s CSA routine if they cannot use vitamin A.
*see note in Key Benefits.
How To Use
After cleansing in the morning and evening, massage 6 drops of Bakuchiol Peptides across the face, neck and décolletage.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.

The Science Behind
“Bakuchiol has short-term photostability, therefore it can be used in the morning throughout the day. However, through laboratory testing we have discovered that bakuchiol loses its power when exposed to sunlight over a period of a few months. Therefore, we have taken a dual-actioned preventative approach to keeping our formula stable in the long-term. Bakuchiol Peptides is housed in a UV-protected glass bottle, to protect the formula from photooxidation which can eventually cause a significant loss in performance. The UV-light stabilizing coating on the bottle targets the UV rays before they can cause any damage, absorbing the highly energetic UV light and then dissipating the energy. Photo-stabilizer krameria triandra root extract on the other hand, works to absorb any UV which penetrates through the packaging, protecting the bakuchiol molecule within the formula.”
