Hard-hitting, ultra-light, mattifying gel-cream / 1 oz
Augustinus Bader The Light Cream has a gel-cream-like texture that melts into skin with a mattifying effect. Designed specifically for oily skin or those living in humid, congested environments, it’s an excellent way for skin types that previously couldn’t enjoy the brand’s patented TFC8 complex to explore the intriguing world of Augustinus Bader.
The mysterious TFC8 is a blend of 40 different natural amino acids, vitamins, and synthesized molecules that are found in healthy skin. Unlike most stem cell related ingredients on the market, TFC8 does not contain actual human stem cells or their derivatives, nor does it rely on plant stem cells, which are not as effective when applied to human skin. Instead, TFC8 was carefully created in a lab and calibrated to encourage optimal activity of the existing stem cells in our own skin, thus accelerating skin’s own repair processes — processes that address everything from sun damage to uneven texture to loss of firmness.
TFC8’s development was based on Professor Bader’s breakthrough research on skin healing and tissue repair, and the complex has been proven to nourish skin while strengthening and supporting its innate potential for renewal in a uniquely personalized way; because it stimulates your skin to activate its own renewal processes, it goes to work where your skin needs it most.
And work it does, as demonstrated by the thorough clinical trials and consumer studies that every Augustinus Bader formula boasts. Clinical studies demonstrated that, after 12 weeks of The Light Cream use, hydration was improved by 213%, while pores looked 54% less noticeable, hyperpigmentation was visibly reduced by 55%, and skin firmness improved by 55%. (Note that we quoted objective clinical study results here — not the typical subjective consumer study results — because these numbers, in a clinical study, are downright impressive.)
Augustinus Bader The Light Cream is for you if you're concerned about aging and want to address it in a new way, and your skin could use a bit of sebum-balancing.
