These products are the result of groundbreaking scientific advancements in skincare. The innovative formulations are powered by our patented Trigger Factor Complex, or TFC8®. Professor Bader used his pioneering expertise in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine, as well as 30-plus years of scientific research, to develop TFC8®.

TFC8® is a revolutionary technology that uses high-grade vitamins, natural amino acids, and synthesized molecules naturally found in the body to nourish and protect your skin. Augustinus Bader products also feature powerful botanical ingredients for a singular combination of clean beauty and clean science. This collection of cleansers and exfoliators for the face redefines the concept of smart skincare.

Our Luxury Skin Cleansers and Gentle Exfoliants

The secret to purified skin? Using products that thoroughly clean without stripping your complexion’s essential moisture barrier. Pores remain unclogged, impurities are washed away, and skin looks supple and glowing.

Create a purifying skincare routine from the following products:

The Cream Cleansing Gel

Soothe skin with this gentle yet effective cleanser. This cream cleanser transforms into a light lather as it's massaged into your face for a refreshing, lightweight texture. Use The Cream Cleansing Gel


  • Tighten pores
  • Improve skin elasticity, tone, and texture
  • Hydrate and balance your complexion
  • Calm sensitive or stressed skin
  • Smooth the appearance of imperfections
  • Remove makeup


The Cleansing Balm

This luxurious balm has a wonderfully rich consistency that melts into skin and transforms into a milk with the addition of water. It comes with “The Cloth,” made of 100% cotton muslin, which acts as a gentle exfoliant when you use it to wipe off excess balm after cleansing. The Cleansing Balm lets you:

  • Easily remove oil, makeup, and impurities
  • Condition skin with nourishing hydration
  • Maintain the skin’s pH balance
  • Tone and decongest your complexion

The Essence

This is a wonderful exfoliator for the face, with potent ingredients such as phytic acid and salicylic acid, but it also tones and hydrates for an innovative 3-in-1 product. Use The Essence every day to:

  • Soften and smooth your complexion
  • Reduce the appearance of pores
  • Lock in moisture
  • Regulate skin’s oil secretion to balance the complexion
  • Improve tone and texture
  • Protect skin against environmental irritants

Start with a cleanser as the first step in your purifying skincare routine, both morning and night. You can choose cleansing balm or cream cleanser, or use both in a double cleanse, starting with the balm. The Essence can be used as a toner after you cleanse. Follow it with the Augustinus Bader moisturizer of your choice.
