Meet your new, natural alternative retinol.

Meet your new, natural alternative retinol.

Does a gentle (yet just as powerful) alternative to retinol sound like godsend? Well, it exists - NEW Rosapene™ Bakuchiol Oil is your ultimate age-defying must-have. Bolstered with advanced natural active bakuchiol, and supercharged with our clinically proven oil-blend Rosapene™, natural ageing has never looked so graceful or felt quite so gentle.
Ageing skin might be a normal part of life but – let’s face it – that doesn’t mean it’s always easy to deal with. Dark spots, fine lines and dryness are all changes that can creep up on us just as we think our skin is finally settling down.

As we get older, our skin becomes thinner and more prone to dryness, causing even the most oily skin types to reach for a little extra hydration to help keep their complexion healthy.

As our natural collagen production slows down, fine lines and wrinkles start setting in and our skin loses its youthful elasticity and plumpness. Years of sun exposure and general wear-and-tear can also lead to hyperpigmentation – dark, discoloured patches where our skin has begun to produce a little too much melanin.

So… should I be worried about ageing?

In short, absolutely not! Growing older gracefully is a beautiful thing, so instead of stressing or trying to ‘reverse’ the signs of ageing, we’re all for celebrating the life we’ve got and working with our skin at every stage.

With that said, when it comes to ageing as naturally as possible a nourishing skincare routine is key, which is where the rejuvenating power of NEW Rosapene™ Bakuchiol Oil comes into play.

Bakuchiol vs. retinol – what’s the difference, really?

To help combat signs of ageing, lots of people turn to retinol – a type of Vitamin A compound that helps turbo-charge skin cell turnover and boost collagen production.

While retinol works for reducing hyperpigmentation and fine lines, it can be pretty rough on the skin. Even if it’s introduced nice and slowly, most new retinol users end up with a horror story or two as their skin slowly adjusts to it. Redness, flaking and irritation are unfortunately all just part of the process.

Bakuchiol on the other hand is sort of like retinol’s kinder, less dramatic sister. Often called ‘nature’s answer to retinol’, it’s a gentle, plant-derived alternative offering all of the same anti-ageing benefits with none of the fuss or irritation.

Unlike retinol, it’s also safe to use while pregnant, plays nicely with other skincare ingredients, and can be used in the morning or at night, making it perfect for treating the signs of ageing and an absolute powerhouse when mixed with our nourishing blend Rosapene™.

Say hello to your new favourite super oil

Pure plant oil-based formulas have been our jam ever since we bottled our very first batch of Certified Organic Rosehip Oil, so putting a Trilogy spin on another pure-plant oil using powerful natural actives just made sense.

We’ve combined the gentle skin-smoothing and brightening effects of bakuchiol with a scrumptious blend of oils and antioxidants to help support vibrant skin at any age. Think of it as bakuchiol, but better.

Here’s a quick look at some of the natural ingredients doing the work:


A natural alternative to retinol extracted from Indian Babchi plant seeds. Unlike retinol, it’s a gentle plant oil proven to reduce signs of ageing with no nasty side-effects. It’s also tried and proven – 59% of people using bakuchiol showed an improvement in hyperpigmentation, similar to a group using retinol for the same amount of time*.


Our special blend of rosehip oil, cranberry oil, and super-charged natural antioxidants to help replenish and soften the skin. Clinically proven to improve brightness by 75%, fine lines and wrinkles by 33%, and elasticity by 25%^.

Tamanu Seed Oil

An earthy, nutty plant oil loaded with oleic and linoleic fatty acid for powerful anti-inflammatory action and moisturising.

Black Cumin Oil

Extracted from black-fennel flower seeds and used by the Eastern world for centuries as a rich source of antioxidants.

Macadamia Seed Oil

A ‘dry oil’ that’s a similar consistency to our skin’s natural oils, helping it hydrate and heal without clogging pores.

Where it sits in your routine

One of our favourite things about Rosapene™ Bakuchiol Oil is how easily it slots into virtually any skincare line-up, but if hyperpigmentation or skin elasticity are your main concerns, try using it like this:

1. Cleanse thoroughly with Active Enzyme Cleansing Cream.

2. Protect and boost the skin with Antioxidant+ Defence Serum.

3. Massage in a few powerful drops of Rosapene™ Bakuchiol Oil.

4. Lock all the good stuff in with Vitamin C Moisturising Lotion in the morning.

5. For extra hydration in the evenings, pamper your skin with a Rejuvenating Overnight Mask.

So if ageing gracefully is your aim, why wait? Ditch the retinol and treat yourself to youthful, vibrant skin the natural way instead.
