By the time Professor Augustinus Bader decided to dabble in beauty he had already spent decades developing technologies that could activate and harness the body’s ability to heal. 

Bader’s work specifically focused on reawakening cells that had become dormant due to ageing or trauma, which led to the development of his revolutionary Wound Gel. 

Created in 2008, the medical-grade Wound Gel was created to promote the natural healing of traumatic wounds at a cellular level. This meant that it could send healing signals to the injury site - from diabetic wounds to third-degree burns and scars - which stimulated the damaged skin cells and promoted healing.

Yet, it wasn’t until 2018 that Bader used this knowledge to release his own skincare line, starting with The Cream and The Rich Cream using the TFC8, or Trigger Factor Complex.

Now, five years on, Bader’s skincare line counts Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian among its fans.

The line has now expanded to include a highly curated collection of expert-created skin and haircare, all using skin cellular-renewing technology.

Many products are made of natural amino acids (proteins), vitamins and peptides that turn their base formulations into smarter, more adaptive skincare.

In fact, most of the products on its site have hundreds of five-star reviews attesting to it reducing fine lines and wrinkles, redness, hyperpigmentation, cellulite, stretch marks, and damage caused by external stressors.

Over 95 per cent of users of The Rich Cream say it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while 93 per cent of users of The Eye Cream noticed a dramatic improvement in dark circles and under-eye bags.

A further 100 per cent of the users of The Eyebrow and Lash Enhancing Serum saw visible results in four weeks, while 96 per cent of The Essence users say their skin texture feels and looks more even.

Plus, all of Bader’s skincare is formulated without irritants, gluten, GMOs, parabens, synthetic fragrance, sulfates (SLS & SLES), silicones, phthalates, DEA, heavy metals, talc and petrolatum, paraffin, and mineral oil, so you know you’re only slapping on the good stuff.
