Retinol plus Bader’s TFC8® in a formula that suits all skin types, even sensitive / 1 oz
Augustinus Bader The Retinol Serum is one of those products we love because it makes so much sense: this milky serum amplifies the positive effects of retinol (always a favorite) with Bader’s famed TFC8® for a double dose of skin-renewing ingredients that promote cell turnover while nourishing and replenishing the skin. The formula uses 0.06% retinol, an amount carefully calibrated by Prof. Bader to work optimally with TFC8®, allowing more people to benefit from retinol without experiencing irritation or dryness.
The mysterious TFC8® is a blend of 40 different natural amino acids, vitamins, and synthesized molecules that are found in healthy skin, combined to help accelerate 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, stimulating your skin to activate its own renewal processes.
And work it does, without causing redness — as demonstrated by the thorough clinical trials and consumer studies that every Augustinus Bader formula boasts. Clinical studies demonstrated that, after 12 weeks of use by 63 people who described their skin as “sensitive,” the appearance of fine lines was reduced by 73% and hyperpigmentation was visibly reduced by 75%, while redness was visibly reduced by 89%. Those with acne may find it particularly helpful, too: in the same clinical study, the appearance of blemishes was reduced by 87% and post-acne marks by 90%. (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 Retinol Serum is for you if you're concerned about aging and want to address it with retinol, but you’re new to retinol or find most retinol formulas to be too harsh for your skin. It’s fantastic, it’s gentle, and it really does the job…with the numbers to prove it.
