Is Bakuchi the new wonder ingredient?? - Dr. Sravani Sandhya, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic Visakhapatnam.


Bakuchi or Babchi is the new wonder ingredient that has powerful skin healing properties! Let us talk about this wonder ingredient in detail that is synonymous with being a miracle additive to several skin products. All parts of this magical plant are useful such as the stem, roots, leaves and seeds however the powder of its seeds and the oil are the most potent and effective remedy for the skin. Babchi seeds have been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda and now has found its place in modern science as well. 

 Can Bakuchiol replace Retinols?

Retinoids are defined as a family of naturally occurring compounds comprising of Vitamin A(retinols) and its derivatives. Retinol stimulates cellular activity and strengthens the protective barrier of the skin to avoid loss of moisture and collagen promoting tissues. Bakuchiol works with a similar genetic function and results in improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, elasticity, firmness and reduction in photo damage without the risks involved with usage of Retinoids.

Some of the other uses in skin care. 

  • It helps brighten the skin by visibly reducing the pigmentation and plumps it at the same time by boosting collagen production.
  •  Bakuchi is also known to treat Vitiligo. The active ingredient in Bakuchi is ‘Psoralens’ which on exposure to sunlight helps form melanin in skin that has lost pigmentation. There are studies that suggest that an Ayurvedic paste or Lepa applied to Vitiligo patients is found to be effective.
  • Babchi oil can be used on the scalp & hair to control hair loss, fight fungal infections and also gives relief from psoriasis and eczema.
  • It also has anti inflammatory properties and can help improving acne & their scars. It helps reduce boils and skin eruptions.


What is the difference between Babchi oil and Bakuchiol?

Babchi oil is a product of Bakuchi seeds whereas Bakuchiol is the active chemical component in it. It can be used as an oil though it is better to use it in a blend such as a cream for safe and effective results.
