Clean Science. Innovative Solutions.

Our Green Values

At Augustinus Bader, we ground the development of smarter skincare in the principle of biological wisdom — a natural intelligence that exists in all living things.

From clean ingredients to responsibly sourced materials, our practice is guided by a set of green values and driven by over 30 years of scientific research, resulting in our clean formulations and efficacious products.

Clean Science + Responsibly Sourced Ingredients

Our products contain the highest quality ingredients – high potency botanicals and clean actives – to complement our proprietary complex, TFC8®, and work synergistically within the formulation to enhance overall performance.

Our products are 100% free of parabens, fragrance, SLS, SLES, and DEA, heavy metals, talc, petrolatum/paraffin/mineral oil, and do not contain unnecessary preservatives, solvents, and emulsifiers.

Ingredients are sustainably sourced, and clean, bio-engineered actives are used where possible to reduce environmental impact.

All Augustinus Bader products are cruelty-free and we aim to be entirely vegan by 2021.

Reuse + Recycle

An estimated 80% of our primary containers are fully recyclable.

An estimated 90% of our secondary containers are fully recyclable, and we use FSC Certified paper.

An estimated 70% of our packaging is plastic-free, and we continue to move toward more sustainable materials such as ECOCERT/COSMOS certified glass, and transitioning all packaging to being post-consumer recycled.

Our packaging is ECOCERT/COSMOS certified where possible.

Redesigned 50ml Outer Box

We are pleased to announce that, going forward, our 50ml hero creams will ship in a new, environmentally-friendly outer box, crafted from fully recyclable FSC-Certified (responsibly sourced) paper.

This redesign represents a 60% reduction in the volume size of the outer box, significantly minimizing waste and reducing our carbon footprint.

We are forever evolving and want to thank you for your support and communication as we worked toward this important milestone.

One Tree Planted: Partnership for Reforestation

We are pleased to share that we are partnering with One Tree Planted, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. Together, we will plant one tree for every 50ml Cream or Rich Cream purchased from our site.

From cleaning our air and water to creating habitats for biodiversity, trees contribute to our health and wellbeing and create jobs for positive social impact. We are honored to play an active part in the global reforestation effort. One Tree Planted

Carbon Balancing: Paper

We are working with The World Land Trust and The Woodland Trust to measure, reduce, and offset the carbon footprint from our paper usage, with the aim of going carbon neutral in 2021.
