It’s no secret that there’s real, health-promoting power in plants. We opt for an energy-boosting green smoothie after a workout and lovingly tend to our indoor gardens, and the more dedicated among us even reap the benefits of forest bathing. (Trust us: You should try it.) And when it comes to our beauty routine, we’re beginning to understand just how beneficial—and earth-conscious—plant-based skincare is. It’s the idea behind Farm Rx, a vegan-skincare line that harnesses the potency of plant ingredients. It offers clean formulas that are free of unnecessary chemical compounds—like parabens, phthalates, sulfates, mineral oils, artificial dyes and fragrances—plus, it never tests on animals.

At the heart of Farm Rx is bakuchiol. If this natural wrinkle-fighting ingredient is unfamiliar, allow us to catch you up. Derived from the seeds of the plant Psoralea corylifolia—a herbal remedy long used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine—bakuchiol is known to address fine lines, wrinkles and texture. It’s so powerful that studies have shown it to be a natural alternative to retinol, but unlike its counterpart, bakuchiol doesn’t come with any photosensitivity or skin-irritating side effects, making it a gentle but efficacious choice, a.m.-through-p.m.

Bakuchiol stars in Farm Rx’s Bakuchiol Serum, a tool for combatting skin aging on all fronts: wrinkles, texture and dullness. Daily use of the serum, which has a lightweight oil texture, leads to smoother, more radiant skin. For the delicate eye area, there’s the Bakuchiol Eye Cream: It brightens dark circles while reducing the look of fine lines.

For all-day hydration and a hit of damage-defying antioxidants, turn to the line’s two distinct moisturizers, both of which are packed with soothing super-greens, like vitamin-rich Brussels sprouts, broccoli sprouts, moisture-retaining green tea and nourishing moringa oil. Thanks to its soothing texture, the Super Greens Cooling Gel can be used as a moisturizer or applied in a thicker layer and used as a mask to deliver swift moisture to the skin. The Super Greens Multivitamin Moisture Cream is your daily defence: It replenishes hydration with a slew of vitamins and nutrients. Altogether, it’s a complete skincare regimen—from Farm Rx to vanity table.
