As conscious as we are about being present in the moment and practicing the power of now, we can't help but feel excited about what the future has in store, complete with all of its technological advancements.
Microsoft has already painted us a picture of the future of fashion and - in the realms of skincare - we're turning the lens to Leipzig. where its leading expert in regenerative medicine. Professor Augustinus Bader, has been making unprecedented moves in revolutionising our regimes.
Modelled on the mantra, 'everything your body needs, it already knows, Augustinus Bader, practice comes from a place of science (via Harvard Medical School and years of research into scar-free healing), working with the body's innate capabilities to fix itself through, what he calls, the ABC method. In other words... Active, boost and commit.
We spoke to Professor Bader, to discover all there is to know about his new 'miracle' cream from the man himself.
A key formula behind both of your products - The Cream and The Rich Cream - is your patented Trigger Factor Complex (TFC8S), which consists of natural amino acids, high-grade vitamins and synthesised molecules that are naturally found in the skin. We know the ingredients, but could you elaborate on this technology for us, and how it works?
The technology is like building a puzzle; it serves as a toolbox to bring all of these key ingredients together in such a configuration that your own stem cells can use them to fix the skin. What makes these products unique isn't the fact that the vitamins, antioxidants and lipid structures haven't been used or heard of before - or that we have one `hero' product - instead, it's the percentage and combinations and structures that put them in their own league.
The Cream and The Rich Cream are the first two products in what will be your comprehensive skincare collection. What makes these pieces unique compared to other ranges on the market?
It's important to note that the brand exists because of my real passion for bringing life-altering technologies to people across the globe. Both The Cream and The Rich Cream are completely naturally derived as well as being brilliant for minimising lines, scars, pigmentation, and wrinkles. In terms of the latter, the skin isn't 'filling in' the wrinkles as such, it's remodelling the skin and teaching it to behave like it did when you were younger.
From an efficiency point of view, the concentration we use to initiate the regeneration or repair process is the same for both creams, but the compositions are completely different. The 'Rich Cream' - formulated with oils of argan, avocado and evening primrose - is a dense, rich product designed for dry skin-types; 'The Cream' is a lighter formula designed for 'normal' and older skin. The 'Rich Cream' is excellent if winter is coming and the skin is more dry.
What does the future hold for the Augustinus Bader range? Are there more products in the offing?
There's a lot of hope for the future in stem cell use. Ultimately, stem cells are what started us, and can be divided to create any type of tissue and organs.
Our next product is going to be a body oil, which will again be totally organic and natural, and boasting the stem cell activation signals in it. We want to keep it a bit of a surprise, but we're going to veer into cosmetics with a lip balm, and we've got ideas for scalp and hair care products as well in the pipeline...
