Known as the stem cell whisperer, he looks at beauty differently. Where beauty brands add stem cells to skincare, Bader tells me we’re born with an abundance of stem cells, but they become lazy as we age. What we need to do is give them all the ingredients they need to trigger them to behave like young stem cells again. The Cream has all those ingredients and tackles almost every skin concern from acne and rosacea to wrinkles and pigmentation in one bottle. There are no key ingredients—instead it’s comprised of 40 different molecules such as amino acids, vitamins and synthesised substances found naturally in healthy skin, known collectively as TFC8 Trigger Factor Complex, expertly blended to awaken your complexion. “Skin is constantly remodelling, and this cream allows it to remodel differently,” says Bader. “It’s like a toolbox allowing your cells to fix the problems. Stem cells are autonomous in making decisions, and this cream empowers them to make better decisions.”
I’ve been using the cream for just over five weeks and I’ve never had more compliments about my complexion, from “it looks so glowy” to “bloody hell, your skin looks amazing.” It comes in two formulations, The Cream for oily to normal skin and The Rich Cream, with argan oil, avocado and evening primrose oil for those who suffer with dryness. It doesn’t come cheap at £205, however, 10% of the profit is reinvested into Bader’s medical research.
