Ingredients

The Face Oil combines our exclusive skincare technology with high potency botanicals - prized for their efficacy for centuries.

TFC8®: A complex of natural amino acids, high-grade vitamins and synthesized molecules naturally found in skin, which guides key nutrients and powerful natural ingredients to the skin cells, creating an optimal environment for the body’s innate processes of repair and renewal.

Babassu Oil: Sustainably sourced, and loaded with lauric acid, this vitamin-rich seed oil boosts skin’s natural defenses against environmental aggressors for a stronger lipid barrier and healthy skin microbiome. Known for centuries for its healing properties.

Argan Oil: Packed with essential fatty acids including linoleic acid (omega-6), and cold-pressed to preserve the optimum nutrient potential. Works to rebuild skin's hydrolipidic film and prevent transepidermal water loss (TEWL).

Hazelnut Oil: Sourced in the Southwest of France, this nourishing extract is naturally high in omega fatty acid content and known to support improved moisture retention and healthier barrier function, and lessen trans epidermal water loss (TEWL).

Karanja Oil: Used since ancient times in Ayurvedic medicine, this flavonoid powerhouse with antimicrobial properties supports the skin’s defense against the damaging effects of environmental aggressors. Also helps prevent signs of premature aging.

Pomegranate Seed Extract: This anti-aging, antioxidant-rich oil optimizes skin's self renewal mechanism, supports improved elasticity and reduces the appearance of wrinkles thanks to more than 60% punicic acid and linolenic acid.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I use it 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 this 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 it fragrance-free, cruelty-free, vegan-friendly and free from?

Yes, The Face Oil is free from gluten, parabens, mineral oils, sulfates (SLS, SLES) and DEA. Like all Augustinus Bader products it is also cruelty-free. 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 this 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 actives, 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 this 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.
