Drupanol is a naturally occurring phenol that has been isolated from the seeds of Psoralea drupaceae. Although drupanol is sometimes said to be the same compound as bakuchiol, the two compounds are in fact distinct; they have the same molecular formula and weight but different chemical structures and hence are structural isomers. Drupanol has been found to possess androgenic and anabolic activity and hence is a phytoandrogen. In contrast to drupanol, bakuchiol has been found to possess antiandrogenic activity.
