Hard-hitting rich cream for repair and renewal / 1 oz or 1.7 oz
Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream is a hot-from-the-lab (now vegan) upgrade of the original Rich Cream formula that is one of the brand’s best sellers.
This rich, more moisturizing version of The Cream has been designed to deliver the brand's patented TFC8 complex into the skin as effectively as possible while leaving skin with a soft, radiant, dewy glow.
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. The Rich Cream, in particular, seems to be the Bader brand’s star at bringing radiance and vitality back to the skin, and it’s also a wonder at plumping and firming; clinical studies demonstrated that, after 4 weeks, skin felt 92% firmer and 110% more elastic, and hydration improved by 145%. (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 Rich Cream is for you if you're concerned about aging and want to address it in a new way, and you want an all-in-one cream that will leave skin feeling very hydrated and dewy. We find it does its best work on 40+ complexions, and it's a godsend for those who wish for plumper, firmer skin. The Rich Cream is a winner on balanced to dry skin types and is beloved by those with skin that looks or feels weathered. If you're looking for a lighter formula, check out The Cream.
PS A product doesn’t win as many accolades as this one has without being worth it. Among them, for both The Cream and The Rich Cream: “Greatest Skincare of All Time” (WWD) and “Best in Beauty 2020” (Vogue, Allure, Savoir Flair, Harper’s Bazaar, Health). Harper’s Bazaar notes that it’s “Like a reset button for your skin.” We could go on. But we’re guessing we don’t need to.
