Our new Plant Stem Cell Retinol Alternative Serum is in a class of its own, powered by plants that are results-driven, gentle and non-irritating—a first in Certified Organic stem cell skincare.

Containing the proven power of traditional retinol, thanks to Bakuchiol and Alfalfa Extract. This serum provides 24/7 age protection—and is a one of a kind with retinol-like results from the combination of Alfalfa, Bakuchiol and Acai Stem Cells. 

We have tackled two products in one serum, adding these star ingredients to:  

One | Treat

The visible signs of aging—and give retinol-like results. 

With thanks to:

Bakuchiol KORA Organics New Retinol Alternative Serum


A natural retinol alternative to firm, strengthen, and improve the visible signs of aging by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles without irritation or dryness. 


A natural retinol alternative to visibly repair the signs of aging and smooth out rough, damaged skin without irritation. 

Two | Prevent

From further signs of aging. 

With thanks to:

Acai Stem Cells   

Our stem cell skincare is harvested from Acai berries—which are packed with antioxidants that nourish and protect against environmental stressors (that cause us to age).

Rosehip Oil   

To soften the visual effects of stressed skin and help brighten & even skin tone while protecting against environmental damage.  

Noni KORA Organics

Noni Fruit Extract

For its rich count of vitamins and antioxidants that nourishes and promotes skin’s natural radiance. 

We’ve answered your questions to share more about our powerful and organic anti aging serum: 

What Plant Are The Stem Cells From?    

The plant-based stem cell extract is harvested from Acai berries. The Acai berries, extracted by stem cell technology, act as a potent antioxidant. 

They improve Ferulic Acid content, which is effective in combination with Vitamin C & E-rich Rosehip Oil and Noni Extract to boost antioxidant protection from free radical damage and the look of premature aging.   

Is This Vitamin A Skincare?    

There is no directly added Vitamin A in the product, however it does contain Rosehip Oil which contains a naturally occurring form of Vitamin A. 

What Is The 5% Blend Made Up Of?    

We take a careful approach to our formulation and how much is put in, so we added the substantiated level of Bakuchiol at 1% and Alfalfa at 4%.   

These are the maximum amounts that have been tested in a clinical setting.    

Bakuchiol is the #1 retinol alternative to market and Alfalfa is an up-and-coming alternative in the naturals space with great clinical support behind it.  

When combined, Bakuchiol and Alfalfa are known to show retinol-like results, smoothing wrinkles and firming the look of skin while being gentle enough to use day and night for around-the-clock prevention and protection.  

While there are other alternatives, we chose these two ingredients because they produce powerful results, are gentle on skin, science-based, of natural origin, sustainably sourced and can be used day and night, every day as needed.

Another reason we love this blend is its comparable (and powerful) results to a retinol treatment—without irritation.   

Nearly 80% of retinol users up to age 65 said our Certified Organic anti aging serum was MORE EFFECTIVE than retinol skincare products 

*Based on a study of 50 retinol users aged 25-65 over the course of 4 weeks, applying 2x daily AM and PM.

Our Alfalfa and Bakuchiol serum is a safer, gentle and more effective retinol option.  

With love,   

KORA Organics
