Discover the Keys to Unveil Your Glow

Following 30 years of investigating and cultivating ways to stimulate and utilize the human body’s healing potential (concentrating on reactivating cells that become inactive due to aging or injury), Professor Augustinus Bader, now director of cell methods and applied stem-cell biology at the University of Leipzig in Germany, was inspired to focus exclusively on skin. In 2008, renowned biomedical scientist, physician and stem-cell expert Bader developed a revolutionary wound gel that could heal severe skin trauma without the need for invasive surgery or skin grafts – his pioneering method became the inspiration behind Augustinus Bader skincare.

While many modern strategies to boost skin involve some amount of irritation (often to goad the skin into a repair response), Bader’s cult creams support the skin’s natural processes—and the results are legendary. When The Cream, the world-famous moisturizer that is perpetually sold out everywhere, was introduced to the market, it began a bestselling series of clean products for both hair and skin containing Bader’s exclusive ingredient TFC8. When we had an opportunity to chat with Bader himself regarding his original approach on keeping our skin healthy and looking its best, we couldn’t resist!

Frequently Asked Questions with Bader:


What initially sparked your interest in skin care?

My mission originated in the goal to assist burn victims, particularly those of a younger demographic suffering from severe injuries. Years ago I invented a medical-grade hydrogel with which to treat such patients; however, gaining access to grants for clinical testing needed for its release proved difficult. After that experience, I encountered Charles Rosier who shared a vision of employing similar techniques to develop skin-care solutions for trial funding. It took some persuading but after recognizing the effectualness of our cream in bringing joy and assurance to people, I accepted to modify the technology into an even smarter product suitable for daily use – this led to us forming the brand!

What makes your patented TFC8 complex so effective?

The formula for TFC8 (Trigger Factor Complex) is vastly different from the medical one I created. This discrepancy derives from the need to use distinct properties when applying on intact skin versus open wounds, allowing it to effectively enter and interact with a person’s natural repair code. Consequently, this makes accessing such treatments more convenient than before!

As a result, it is now far more practical to access these treatments! After rigorous exploration, I discovered an answer that supplied the correct precursor molecules to assist in restoring youthful behavior of skin cells through combining high-grade vitamins, amino acids, and compounds.

Built with the same molecules naturally occurring in human skin, TFC8 acts like a GPS system and guides essential nutrients such as amino acids, vitamins, and minerals to their specific locations. This meticulous delivery process helps your skin maintain its elasticity by enabling healthy cell renewal instead of dysfunctional cellular breakdown as we age.

What other components do you include to further rejuvenate the skin?

Augustinus Bader Rich Cream is tailored to meet the needs of different skin types, containing a replenishing blend of argan oil, avocado oil and evening primrose oils rich in omega-6 fatty acids and antioxidants that guards against free radical damage. It’s also infused with TFC8 technology for extra protection!

In contrast, Augustinus Bader the original cream boasts a powerful blend of aloe vera, amino acids, and vitamins A, B, C & E – all working together to protect your skin from free-radical damage while also smoothing and refining its texture. Additionally included is TFC8 which further promotes these wondrous benefits!

What is it about The Rich Cream and TFC8 that make them so successful among users with all types of skin? How are they able to provide such a wide range of benefits for individuals no matter their complexion?

Our cutting-edge technology in skin care works with epigenetics, which allows us to target our active ingredients directly at the source of your skin’s repair needs. Whether it’s fine lines and wrinkles or redness and elasticity, we have just what you need for a more positive appearance.

TFC8 takes our powerful base formulations to the next level, customizing each product specifically for your skin’s unique requirements. We’ve tapped into “bio-wisdom”; fostering natural rejuvenation and restoring balance when you use any of these products. With TFC8, your skincare has never been so efficient or effective!

Is there really any excuse to neglect a quality moisturizer, no matter your skin type? 

Keeping adults’ skin healthy and beautiful is essential, which is why this moisturizer replenishes moisture and lipids to maintain the delicate ecosystem that makes up your skin’s microbiome. Plus, it creates a protective barrier against environmental aggressors to prevent premature aging signs from appearing, allowing you to keep optimal skin health.

Why should you choose eye cream over regular facial moisturizer when caring for your eyes?

We all know that the skin around our eyes ages more rapidly than any other part of our face. This is because this delicate area contains only a tenth of the thickness present in other parts, and its fat and muscle composition are not as dense either – leaving it vulnerable to lines, sagging, puffiness due to limited support. Our eyes are a delicate area, so they require the same hydrating and brightening benefits of our other skin-care products, but with gentler formulas that won’t irritate. Augustinus Bader Eye Cream contains essential vitamins C and E to help reduce dark circles; plus deeply nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, evening primrose oil, and argan oil to combat dehydration.

What unique impact does time have on the skin of the face compared to other areas of the body?

It’s no secret that the skin on our body needs just as much, if not more attention than the areas of our face. To suit these larger surfaces, we custom-made formulas specifically for them and named them The Body Lotion and The Body Oil. These textures were adapted to be spread better over large body parts while still containing the same powerful TFC8 technology seen in all our products. Now you can provide your entire skin with maximum protection!

Your body’s natural defense system is at your fingertips! Your cells are tirelessly working to rejuvenate skin, not just your face. With our products, you can tap into this gift of lifelong self-repair and ensure that all areas of skin remain healthy for the longest possible duration.

You may be tempted to splurge on a serum or cream, but what can face wash really do for you in terms of achieving smoother, more toned and luminous skin?

Augustinus Bader Cream Cleansing Gel and The Cleansing Balm have been specially created to serve as an alternative purpose than our moisturizers, with varying ingredients composition. Despite this difference however, both products still contain the same revolutionary technology of TFC8 which is known for its ability to help accelerate cellular regeneration processes.

The Cream Cleansing Gel and The Cleansing Balm offer you a one-of-a-kind experience with the power to cleanse your complexion while also improving elasticity and increasing cellular turnover. TFC8, used in both products, is an ultra gentle yet effective nonfoaming formula full of essential fatty acids, minerals, antioxidants as well as active ingredients that target all skin needs upon contact. Now you can enjoy a cleansing ritual with incredible results!

Moreover, it is critical to understand that cleansing your skin correctly enables you to get the most out of any products you apply afterwards; such as a moisturizer. When your pores are unclogged, this allows the moisturizer to be soaked up into the depths of your skin for optimum efficiency.

In addition to using powerful skin care, what other methods can we utilize to revitalize our complexion?

Our overall lifestyle, from psychological wellness to nutrition and even the air we breathe, is a direct reflection of our appearance. That’s why it’s essential to include key nutrients that help reduce harm and protect cells in your diet for optimal health; powerful antioxidants such as selenium, zinc, vitamin E & C, vitamin A , polyphenols flavonoids and carotenoids are all great options.

Nourish your cells by consuming a wide range of colorful fruits and vegetables, such as broccoli, kale, alfalfa sprouts, sweet potatoes, onions, beets tomatoes blueberries blackberries pomegranate and the ultimate indulgence – dark chocolate! Additionally engage in gentle exercise that encourages dynamic routines to promote immunity resilience overall health and well-being. To further support healthy blood circulation consider adding massage therapy into your routine.
