There’s a new vegan beauty product worth checking out called Arbonne AgeWell – an ethically sourced skincare product that contains ingredients which helps nourish your skin.

Arbonne’s AgeWell range features ingredients that work together to target effects of ageing in all skin tones, with the plant derived Bakuchiol – sustainably sourced from India.

Bakuchiol has been referred to as the plant-based, gentle alternative to retinol. When paired with AgeWell’s other key ingredients Stabilised Vitamin C and Plant Stem Cell Extract, it is just as affective in firming the skin and evening skin tone as retinol, without the harsh effects.

While retinol frequents the charts of dermatologist recommendations thanks to its ties to the appearance of healthy ageing, it is commonly known to trigger unwanted sensitivity on the skin. To further complicate matters, retinol becomes unstable when combined with other key ingredients (case in point: Vitamin C, also highly praised by dermatologists).

Bakuchiol, the hero ingredient of Arbonne’s new line, helps skin look radiant. Other ingredients include stabilised Vitamin C and Sustainable Plant Cell Extract.

  1. Bakuchiol: A plant-based retinol alternative, helps to reduce the look of facial wrinkles
  2. Stabilised Vitamin C: Supports collagen through moisturisation
  3. Sustainable Plant Stem Cell Extract: Helps improve the appearance of skin radiance, elasticity, firmness and texture

On its effect on the skin, Raja Sivamani, MD MS AP Board-Certified Dermatologist and Ayurvedic Practitioner, says, “Bakuchiol is a naturally derived ingredient that’s great as a highly effective, yet more gentle approach than retinol in improving the appearances of photo-ageing”.
