Rethinking Skin

Over 27 days, we studied the skin of several remarkable individuals from around the globe using state of the art technology to capture the effects of our groundbreaking skincare.


Participants replaced their skincare routines with just The Cream or The Rich Cream and the results astounded both the participants and the crew. This journey changed not only their skin, but their beliefs in what their skin is capable of.

2 Creams. 27 Days. Life-Changing Results.

The Process

In a remarkable biological process, over an average of 27 days, every skin cell in the human body naturally regenerates. Our unique TFC8® technology, developed by world-renowned stem cell scientist Augustinus Bader, supports and improves this innate process, optimizing the skin's ability to renew.


Watch as over one full 27-day skin cycle BBC Earth cinematographer Richard Kirby tracks participants using Augustinus Bader skincare, revealing the extraordinary results for The Cream That Works.

Measuring Results

To measure signs of aging or damage that may not be visible to the human eye, state-of-the-art camera equipment and skin analysis technology were utilized. The Visia Complexion Analysis System examines the complexion for fine lines and wrinkles, spots, pores, texture, bacteria, UV damage, pigmentation and redness and can compare the skin to others of the same age and ethnicity.


This groundbreaking approach showcases how Augustinus Bader is the cream that works for wrinkles, redness, acne, dryness, UV damage, pores and more.

The Crew

The cast's 27-day journeys were captured by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Sophie Robinson, director of several science documentaries over her career, including "My Beautiful Broken Brain"; and two-time Bafta winning cinematographer, Richard Kirby.


After 35 years of shooting wildlife for shows such as BBC Earth, Deep Blue, and One Life, this is Richard's first time turning his macroscopic lens towards such a human subject as the skin. He uses a Sony A7S camera with a borescope lens and a pinhole lens - the type he would normally use for flora and fauna.
