Key Ingredients

Augustinus Bader haircare is formulated with sustainably-sourced, high potency botanicals and bio-engineered clean actives where possible, to minimize environmental impact.


Powered by our patented TFC8® technology and formulated with soothing Vitamin B5, and potent botanical extracts including Watercress & Indian Cress, Shikakai, and Maca Root to nourish, reinvigorate, and protect the hair and scalp.

Watercress and Indian Cress Extracts

A potent hair health duo that stimulates and prolongs growth while strengthening strands from the root. Supports keratin production for improved hair structure and vigor.

Maca Root Extract

A fortifying active from the sacred maca root, known to stimulate follicles, protect hair, and improve thickness and strength. Helps anchor strands to the scalp, for reduced breakage and shedding.

Vitamin B5

Soothes, moisturizes and softens from root to tip, making hair much easier to comb while boosting strength and shine.

Shikakai Extract

A beautifying botanical derived from an herb native to Asia. Naturally softens, detangles and refreshes hair, while keeping the scalp optimally hydrated, preventing flakiness, fortifying strands, and supporting growth.

Neem Extract

A powerful medicinal herb used for generations to treat hair loss. Its antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties help optimize scalp health while strengthening the hair follicles and encouraging growth.

Bamboo Extract

Improves hair’s moisture retention so it has a healthy, natural shine. It is also known to help sooth the scalp, improve blood circulation in the scalp, and strengthen hair follicles to help grow a thicker mane.

Amber Extract

A rich source of antioxidants and punicic and linolenic fatty acids. Optimizes skin’s self-renewal mechanisms while detoxifying and protecting against visible signs of damage.

Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein

A vegan keratin alternative that naturally rejuvenates hair, micro-penetrating the surface of each strand to reduce damage and reveal fresher-looking tresses.

The Shampoo represents a disruptive approach that is deeply rooted in science and untangles any confusion about how best to cleanse the hair. Unlike any other shampoo available, this innovative formula is developed with TFC8® technology to target cells in the hair follicles, where healthy hair begins to form -- going beyond just cleansing to actively create an optimal environment for repair and regrowth.

The Shampoo gives the hair a deep cleanse without stripping or drying. It’s designed to lock in moisture, combat signs of damage, and smooth frizz to improve overall hair health and growth. It also supports keratin production for shinier, healthier-looking hair.

Improved hair health starts at the scalp. The Shampoo’s formula helps prevent dry, flaky skin and protects against environmental aggressors to support your scalp. The lightweight gel texture won’t weigh down your hair, so hair stays fresh and voluminous.

We’ve carefully selected potent botanical extracts, including Watercress & Indian Cress, Shikakai, and Maca Root. Each ingredient works alongside our powerful TFC8 technology to rejuvenate, strengthen, and protect your hair. The Shampoo is 100% vegan and sulfate-free.

The Shampoo can be used daily or as needed. To apply, massage it gently into wet hair and scalp. Rinse the product out completely, then repeat as needed; follow with The Conditioner, which perfectly complements The Shampoo. We also recommend pairing it with The Scalp Treatment and The Hair Oil to complete your haircare routine.
