What allows The Cream and The Rich Cream to address such a wide variety of skin concerns? Why is that unique among skincare products?
The development of my skincare range focused more on skin health and personalized medicine than that of a traditional beauty developer. Our Trigger Factor Complex® (TFC8®), the proprietary technology at the heart of the Augustinus Bader skincare products, is the result of over 30 years of clinical research. Rather than using a single “hero” ingredient, it’s a complex of more than 40 different ingredients–medical grade vitamins, lipids, proteins, amino acids–which, in exact quantity and combination, constitute important building components for healthy skin. TFC8® is essentially a toolbox, providing the skin with everything it needs to fix the things that go wrong, whether that’s age-related or from things like pollution. When you’re able to do that, you can support epigenetic factors that enable the body to rejuvenate your skin according to your own needs.
One Cream is also about streamlining your skincare routine. How do your products do that, in both the short- and long-term?
Augustinus Bader products work very well on their own - the formula can target a multitude of skin issues, including fine lines and wrinkles, dehydration, redness, loss of elasticity, acne, and pore size. The Creams are most effective when our active ingredient, TFC8®, is the first point of contact with the skin. But when incorporating your other products, please ensure they have fully absorbed before you apply either cream.
Our skincare products are not a temporary fix. The innovation is the ability to support your skin to fix itself, meaning you will retain any improvements to your skin even if you're unable to use regularly. Whereas some moisturizers simply do their job for the day in hand, this one works to train skin in the longterm. After three to four weeks of using this - and only this - after cleansing, you’ll see a big difference in skin quality and health.
How important was it to you that Augustinus Bader products work across a variety of age, gender, and skin constituencies?
All humans have the same innate repair potential, so our Creams can be used by and are beneficial to a diverse customer base: all ethnicities, environments, and skin types. It’s all about empowering your cells to do that perfect regeneration that they are capable of doing. Looking after this amazing living organ, that does so much more than just cover the body, is more than just vanity.
