A Bakuchiol & Niacinamide Skin Care Routine For Fine Lines & Wrinkles

A Bakuchiol & Niacinamide Skin Care Routine For Fine Lines & Wrinkles

What Is Bakuchiol? 

Bakuchiol is an extract derived from the leaves and seeds of the babchi plant, which has been used in Indian Ayurvedic and Chinese medicines for hundreds of years to help heal, calm and soothe the skin, thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. What makes bakuchiol so exciting in the world of skin care is that it mimics conventional retinol in a number of ways.


A quick refresher: Conventional retinol is a form of vitamin A with many applications in skin care. It helps unclog pores, exfoliates skin and increases collagen production, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and give skin a fresh, plump appearance, among many other benefits. It’s a powerful and effective ingredient. Unfortunately, it can be harsh on the skin. Side effects like peeling, redness, itching, burning and dry skin are common. And while many of these uncomfortable issues are temporary, those with sensitive skin should stay away. Conventional retinol also makes skin super photosensitive, meaning that not only should it be used exclusively at night; any sun exposure after retinol application can cause burns and other skin irritation.

This is why bakuchiol is such a game-changer. This retinol alternative includes all the benefits of conventional retinol (minimizing pores and inflammation, increased collagen production, exfoliation, an improved appearance of lines and wrinkles) without the negative side effects. Not only does this plant extract reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, refine skin texture and even out skin tone in a gentle yet effective way, it can be used day and night, without the peeling and redness associated with conventional retinol. 

What Is Niacinamide? 

In the context of skin care, niacinamide is a topical version of vitamin B3. Used as an active ingredient in many products, this water-soluble vitamin has a number of functions including helping to lock in hydration, minimizing the look of large pores, improving uneven skin tone, softening the appearance of fine lines, brightening skin, regulating oil production, strengthening a weak barrier and boosting cell-building proteins in the skin. In other words, it’s a major skin care multitasker. 

Bakuchiol and niacinamide are a power couple — and they're even stronger and more effective when used together. So it made sense to combine the two for this new collection. Read on to find out more about the new Eminence Organics Skin Care products hitting shelves and how they can work in skin care routines. We’ve broken it down by skin type and created a ritual designed just for your needs.

Dry Skin Routine

If your skin is dry, you’re a great candidate for bakuchiol. As mentioned, it boasts many of the same benefits as conventional retinol but without the peeling, drying and irritation. And niacinamide is a major hydrator, making it another no-brainer for dry skin.  


Start with the Firm Skin Acai Cleanser to help hydrate dry skin, thanks to hyaluronic acid and seabuckthorn oil. And because it’s a cream cleanser, it will leave the skin feeling hydrated, noticeably smoother and revitalized. 


Spray Neroli Age Corrective Hydrating Mist directly on to the face and neck, leaving the skin feeling clear, fresh and ready to absorb the rest of your skin care. 


The bamboo and coconut ingredients found in the Bamboo Firming Fluid deeply hydrate the skin with the help of a Natural Retinol Alternative and swiss green apple. 


The Bakuchiol + Niacinamide Moisturizer smooths the look of wrinkles while visibly firming skin and minimizing large pores and uneven texture with no irritation. And its lightweight gel- cream formula leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated.

Eye Cream

Apply the versatile Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream day and night to provide long-lasting hydration and visibly improve the appearance of wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.


Last and definitely not least (aka, the step you can’t skip): try our Radiant Protection SPF Fluid. Our Radiant Protection SPF Fluid is an all-mineral sunscreen that helps protect skin from the harsh effects of the sun while smoothing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. With a hydrating, nourishing feel and dewy finish, this SPF keeps skin looking ageless while offering broad spectrum SPF 30 protection, perfect for dry skin.

Combination Skin Routine

Your skin is a bit of a mixed bag, which is why a routine tailored especially for combo skin is super important. This one has been designed with your unique needs in mind.


Mix a small amount of Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser with water in hands, apply and massage gently with fingertips in a circular motion covering the face and neck areas for a clear, smooth and radiant complexion. 


Energize and revitalize the skin with a couple of sprays of the Mangosteen Revitalizing Mist on your face and neck. You’ll get a dose of potent antioxidants and skin will feel energized, pores will look minimized. 


Firm and tighten the appearance of your skin with the Cornflower Recovery Serum. Just a few drops applied to your face and neck will leave you hydrated but not oily.  


Our new Bakuchiol + Niacinamide Moisturizer is a lightweight gel-cream formulated with the unique combination of bakuchiol and niacinamide to restore skin's natural hydration. This pairing smooths the look of wrinkles and uneven texture while visibly firming skin and minimizing large pores with no irritation.

Eye Cream 

The Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream de-puffs tired eyes, smooths wrinkles and minimizes the appearance of dark undereye circles. The cooling, stainless steel rollerball applicator massages hibiscus and ice wine actives into the areas around the eye, appearing to instantly tighten and lift the skin.


Our aforementioned Radiant Protection SPF Fluid targets the look of fine lines and wrinkles while also defending the skin against the sun's harsh rays thanks to broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection.
