Hard-hitting lightweight cream for repair & renewal / 1 oz or 1.7 oz
Augustinus Bader The Cream is the product that first started the Augustinus Bader craze, and rightly so. This lightweight, hydrating cream (or cream-serum hybrid, as we think of it) has been designed to deliver the brand's patented TFC8 complex into the skin as effectively as possible.
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 Cream, in particular, seems to be a marvel at plumping and firming skin; overall, clinical studies demonstrated that skin looked 52.94% younger after 4 weeks. (Note that we quoted an objective clinical study result — not the typical subjective consumer study results — because that number, in a clinical study, is downright impressive.)
Augustinus Bader The Cream is for you if you're concerned about aging and want to address it in a new way. We find it does its best work on 35+ complexions, and it's a godsend for those who wish for plumper, firmer skin. The Cream is lightweight and almost feels like a primer, making it a winner on combination and oily skin types; men often prefer it, too. If you're looking for a more hydrating formula, check out The Rich Cream.
PS A product doesn’t win as many awards as this one has without being worth it. Among them: “Greatest Skincare of All Time” (WWD), “Best All Around Face Cream” (Harper’s Bazaar), “Best in Beauty 2020” (Vogue, Allure, Savoir Flair, Harper’s Bazaar, Health). We could go on. But we’re guessing we don’t need to.
