Unigen, Inc. launched Bakutrol, a botanical skin care ingredient offering antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anti-scarring benefits. Derived from the plant extract Psolarea corylifolia, it contains bakuchiol, a compound that has been shown to inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria. Bakutrol is compatible in formulation with other acne care ingredients, and can be used as an active agent in creams, lotions, gels, masks and other cosmetic products.
