This pure plant extract has centuries-old roots in ayurveda. It's a retinol alternative with bioidentical functionality, without photosensitization, so unlike retinol, it's entirely sun safe. Bakuchiol's anti-aging benefits include reducing wrinkles, firming, calming, and refining.
A form of vitamin B3, niacinamide is somewhat of a miracle, multipurpose ingredient. Suitable for all skin types and excellent for pore reduction, Niacinamide is not new to cosmetic science but enjoying a resurgence as brands recognize its multifaceted benefits; minimizing blotchiness, redness, and inflammation, making it suitable treatment for acne, eczema, and pigmentation. It's at once ideal for treating acne by reducing severity of lesions and mature skin by attenuating lines and wrinkles.
Collagen does wonders for anti-aging preparations, both topically and orally. An integral component of eyes, connective tissues, joints, and skin, collagen integrity is vital to healthy aging.

Look for natural products with aromatherapeutic properties for mood arousal such as clary sage, ylang ylang, munuca, and sandalwood.
Bars & Sticks
While this category is not new, there are terrific new products to explore among which are acne spot treatment sticks. We're not talking about old-school Dove bar soap or deodorant sticks.
Shampoo bars, blush sticks…a renaissance is occurring. Partially driving this trend is the demand for eco-responsible packaging. Certain brands claim that their shampoo bars, which have no packaging at all may last for up to 100 washes and replace three plastic bottles of shampoo. Ditto for hair conditioners and scalp treatments.
Solid spot treatment sticks for acne blemishes, localized hyperpigmentation, and keratosis are becoming popular, particularly if they are packaged in recyclable paper tubes.
These are top trends to watch in 2022 cosmetics and beauty.
