- Best retinol for sensitive skin, non-irritating
- Bakuchiol complex: gentle, plant-based retinol alternative smooths away ageing
- Anti-ageing natural retinol serum for sensitive skin
- Skin-rg's natural serum outshines synthetic retinol products


Deborah Scott, CEO of SKIN-RG Skincare, created a unique complex which harnesses the composition of Succinic Acid and Bakuchiol. The only complex of its kind, created in her laboratory.

Bakuchiol, a natural plant-based ingredient, has gained popularity in recent years as a potential alternative to retinol. The British Journal of Dermatology conducted a study in 2019 to compare the effectiveness of bakuchiol and retinol, and the results were impressive. The study, which lasted for 12 weeks, found that both bakuchiol significantly reduced wrinkle surface area and hyperpigmentation.

The Evolution range created by Deborah addresses concerns from clients regarding invasive procedures. Deborah says that our Botanical Retinol Bakuchiol can help minimise fine lines and wrinkles and speed up cellular turnover in the skin, giving it a smoother, softer-looking surface. It also helps support the production of collagen and elastin, giving the skin a more youthful-looking, plumper complexion. Additionally, it can hinder the excess production of melanin, leaving the skin looking evenly toned and brightened. 

One significant advantage that bakuchiol has over retinol or retinoic acid is that it is often better tolerated and thus suitable for a broader spectrum of clients. It is an excellent option for those who want to avoid harsher ingredients or have sensitive skin. With its impressive results and gentler effects, bakuchiol is definitely worth considering as a part of your skincare routine.

If you're looking for a gentler alternative to retinol, bakuchiol might be just what you need. Bakuchiol is known for stimulating cell turnover in the skin and activating collagen-producing receptors, which makes it a popular ingredient in many skincare products. Unlike retinol, it's not as harsh on the skin, which means fewer side effects. So, if you've experienced dryness, stinging, and tight skin after using retinol but still want to achieve a glowing complexion, bakuchiol could be your go-to solution.

At Skin-rg, we understand the importance of providing the highest quality skincare products to our customers. That's why we offer a powerful natural retinol solution with a concentration of 1%, which is considered ideal for treating mature skin and stubborn skin concerns such as deep wrinkles, uneven skin tone, pigmentation, and melasma.

Our natural retinol solution is made with premium-grade Bakuchiol resin, not the cheaper powder, and is formulated with the highest dosage possible, allowing you to use our recommended dosage or less, based on your skin's unique needs.

With Skin-rg, you have complete control over your skincare routine, so you can achieve the best possible results.

Retinol is a popular skincare ingredient, but it can sometimes lead to dryness, peeling, and irritation, making it unsuitable for some people.

Additionally, it can make the skin more sensitive to the sun, requiring retinol users to use broad spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF and limit their sun exposure. On the other hand, bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to retinol and has no known side effects, making it a great choice for those with sensitive skin.

When it comes to the use of topical retinoids during pregnancy, the evidence is still inconclusive. However, due to the possibility of it being absorbed into the bloodstream and causing vitamin A toxicity in the unborn baby, it is not recommended for pregnant women.

As an alternative, bakuchiol is a better option as it is generally better tolerated and can be used more flexibly within a skincare regimen. Bakuchiol can be used at any time of day, mixed with other ingredients without risking negative interaction, and is suitable for pregnant women (although further research and a patch test is advisable). Additionally, it is an ideal substitute for those with very sensitive skin who struggle to incorporate retinol into their skincare routines. Furthermore, bakuchiol is a natural and plant-based ingredient which is more desirable to the eco-aware, conscious of the effects that our modern lifestyles have on the planet.

If you are pregnant, it is always important to check with your doctor and consultant to create a pregnancy and breastfeeding-friendly skincare routine that will help you effectively achieve your skin goals while keeping your skin healthy and radiant.

Absolutely we recommend using The Matrix either in the morning or night and then use one of our other boosters like Phoenix or Pro Serum.
