And it’s not just celebs who drool over the best Augustinus Bader products. Beauty editors like us swear by the stuff that’s created by science and has the ingredients and formulas to back it up. Yes, it’s a splurge so allow us to explain what makes it such a cult favorite.
The line was founded by Professor Augustinus Bader, a biomedical scientist and physician. He was one of the foremost experts in the field of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. Why is that so important with skincare? Well, when it comes to fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots and hyperpigmentation, the best way to minimize these things is by making your skin turn over—or regenerate—faster.
The German professor spent more than 30 years researching dormant cells due to aging or trauma. He came up with a technology to help reawaken those cells and allow the body to heal. In 2008, he developed Wound Gel that heals severe skin traumas and this led to Augustinus Bader skincare. Each product contains the patented technology TFC8, a renewing complex.
