ruhi The Bakuchiol Oil Serum
This 100% natural, minimally formulated oil serum with 1% Bakuchiol, a botanical retinol alternative, is a real multitasker, just like you! It is effective like a serum and nourishes like an oil.
For all skin types. Ideal for dry, mature, sensitive and blemish-prone skin.
It contains the botanical active ingredient Bakuchiol, which, according to current studies*, is just as effective as retinol, but without any skin irritation. Bakuchiol is obtained from the Indian Babchi plant and has long been used in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

1% BAKUCHIOL (100% BOTANICAL RETINOL ALTERNATIVE)
Bakuchiol has been shown to stimulate collagen production, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and improve the texture and firmness of the skin. It is obtained from the Indian Babchi plant and has long been used in Ayurveda and in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Bio-based squalane sustainably sourced from sugarcane is the ideal basis of our serum. It provides the skin with intensive moisture and essential fatty acids while making it ultra-soft and dewy. Our squalane is a certified organic ingredient. Squalane oil is light, non-greasy and absorbs quickly.
POMEGRANATE SEED OIL (ORGANIC)
Exquisite, cold-pressed organic pomegranate oil stimulates cell renewal, balances natural oil production and has a strong antioxidant effect. It is particularly rich in punicic acid, a rare, unsaturated fatty acid that has exceptionally high antioxidant properties. The red fruit has played an important role in Persian beauty rituals for many centuries.
Turmeric extract prevents inflammation and soothes the skin. Turmeric is one of the most important medicinal plants in Ayurveda.
NATURAL VITAMIN E
Natural vitamin E strengthens the skin barrier and protects against free radicals. At the same time, our high-dose vitamin E acts as a natural preservative and keeps our oil fresh for a long time.

HOW TO USE
The Bakuchiol Oil Serum can be applied in the morning or evening:
Thoroughly cleanse your skin.
Moisten your skin with water or a mild toner such as rose water. The oil serum should be applied onto slightly damp skin, enabling it to best soak into your skin.
Now apply 4 to 5 drops of the oil serum onto your damp skin.
Massage the oil serum gently into your skin. After just a few minutes, the oil serum has completely soaked into the skin. Enjoy your silky-smooth and glowing skin!
Tip: You can also use The Bakuchiol Oil Serum as an active-ingredient booster. Just add a few drops of the oil serum to your favourite skincare product.
Unlike retinol, Bakuchiol does not make the skin sensitive to light. However, we recommend using sun protection as usual during the day.
Our oil serum is perfect as a base oil for Gua Sha or jade roller massages. It is also ideal for gentle post-treatment after face brushing.
Our Bakuchiol Oil Serum contains powerful active botanical ingredients in high concentrations. We therefore recommend that you perform a patch test before you incorporate the oil serum into your skincare routine. In this way, you can easily rule out an allergic reaction to one of the ingredients. Simply apply a coin-sized amount of The Bakuchiol Oil Serum to your cheek and wait for at least 24 hours. If redness or skin irritation occurs, you should not use the oil serum.
During pregnancy or breastfeeding, please discuss individually with your doctor whether a Bakuchiol-containing skincare product can be used.
