Bidens Pilosa: Next Generation Retinol Alternative
In 2020 the ‘it’ retinol alternative ingredient was Bakuchiol, found in the leaves and seeds of the Psoralea corylifolia plant. But there's a new kid on the block and ours is organic.
Bidens Pilosa is set to take over the world of plant 'retinols', supporting the integrity of collagen and elastin.
Ahead of the game in organic and organic cosmeceutical skincare, Estime & Sens made Bidens Pilosa the key anti-ageing ingredient in their ‘Sublime Youth Elixir’, a luxurious and divinely aromatic serum with retinol-like action that has been proven to reduce wrinkle by 28% in 28 days!
Bidens Pilosa is an edible herb that looks a little like a daisy on a tall stalk. Native to South America, this innocent looking plant could be mistaken for a weed. However, compounds derived from this plant have been found to possess biological and pharmacological activities such as anti-malarial, anti-allergy, anti-hypertensive and smooth muscle relaxant, anti-cancerogenic, anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, antioxidant (Ref: National Library of Medicine, USA) and has been used as a medicine by tribes for centuries.
Organic, Sustainable, Vegan and Safe
Estime & Sens sustainably source Organic Bidens Pilosa for its ability to mimic the actions of retinol without the irritating effects like peeling, irritation and redness. And because it’s retinol-like action is plant derived, it is safe to use during the day unlike synthetic retinols which cause photosensitivity, and is also safe to use during pregnancy.
Bidens Pilosa’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant capabilities means it’s a perfect alternative for sensitive skins that can’t tolerate synthetic retinol, especially skincare fans with rosacea or eczema.

The Sublime Youth Elixir also boasts a cocktail of nourishing and regenerating ingredients like organic Argan, Pomegranate, Cottonseed and Sea Buckthorn oils famous for their anti-ageing properties, rich in vitamins and omegas to keep skin supple and fight damage caused by free radicals (see our blog on free radicals and what this means for your ageing skin).
