Key Ingredients

Augustinus Bader skincare is formulated with sustainably-sourced, high potency botanicals and bio-engineered clean actives, where possible, to minimize environmental impact.


Powered by our patented TFC8® technology and formulated with a rich blend of botanicals, including conditioning babassu and hazelnut, antimicrobial karanja, and renewing pomegranate. Swipe to see key ingredients.

Babassu Oil

Vitamin-rich, sustainably sourced, and long revered. Naturally protects against environmental aggressors for a healthier lipid barrier and skin biome.

Hazelnut Oil

Pressed from hazelnuts sourced in the Southwest of France. Improves moisture retention and barrier function while lessening transepidermal water loss (TEWL).

Karanja Oil

A protective plant-flavonoid powerhouse, revered since ancient times. Boosts skin's defenses against environmental aggressors to prevent visible signs of aging.

Pomegranate Seed Extract

An antioxidant-rich oil packed with punicic and linolenic fatty acids. Supports skin renewal while reducing visible signs of aging, including wrinkles.

After a month of trialling it as the last step of my skincare routine in the evening, I can confirm the hype justifiably continues.


I know people have complicated relationships with face oils, but let me tell you, this is the face oil that will change all that. After just a few days of use, I was straight-up glowing. My skin was truly transformed.

I love the feel and texture of The Rich Cream and the new Oil, mixed together, they keep my skin beautifully hydrated. My complexion is brighter!


I recently bought The Face Oil and that is spectacular especially after laser treatments.

I get a glow like no other. Especially when used with the oil. I find using both Rich Cream and oil combined, it gives me the most nourishment especially for my dry ageing skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I use The Face Oil in my routine?

The Face Oil can be used alone as a moisturizer in the final step of your routine. Or, to lock in hydration, it can be applied after The Cream or The Rich Cream - by gently patting 2-3 drops of oil onto the face.

For very dry skin types, The Face Oil can also be mixed with The Cream or The Rich Cream for an intensely moisturizing experience.

If using retinols, acids or serums, we recommend applying The Face Oil as the final step, once the other products have fully absorbed, to create a comforting and nourishing final layer in your skincare routine.

Can I use The Face Oil around my eyes?

While The Face Oil’s nourishing formula will promote skin that looks firmer and smoother, as well as working to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, we do not recommend applying too close to the eye.

Is The Face Oil fragrance-free, vegan-friendly and free from?

Yes, The Face Oil is free from gluten, parabens, mineral oils, sulfates (SLS, SLES) and DEA. The Face Oil is vegan.

The Face Oil is unscented, with no fragrance added. However, the formula has a light, natural scent - a hint of the botanical ingredients that contribute to the efficacy of the product.

Is The Face Oil suitable for all skin types?

Yes, The Face Oil is formulated for all skin types, including sensitive, and both men and women can use it in their routines. The Face Oil combines an ultra-nourishing blend of ingredients, including restorative argan oil and soothing Karanja Oil, however we recommend checking the ingredients carefully if you have very sensitive skin and consulting your doctor if you have any concerns.

How is The Face Oil different to The Body Oil?

The Face Oil is a different, more concentrated formula than The Body Oil. It is targeted and more suitable for the delicate skin on the face.
