Behind the brand...

Before becoming the man behind the eponymous brand and creating the cult anti-ageing cream The Rich Cream, Augustinus Bader was a university professor, medical doctor, and researcher in biology and regenerative medicine. He dedicated a significant part of his career to research and teaching in biomedicine. Particularly interested in using stem cells to heal the wounds of burn victims, he developed a healing gel in 2008 capable of repairing injuries without the need for skin grafts or surgery.

It is this revolutionary breakthrough, along with 30 years of research, that led Professor Bader to create the precious patented complex at the heart of his products: TFC8® (Trigger Factor Complex 8), a blend of amino acids and vitamins designed to regenerate the skin at the cellular level, giving it a firmer, more plump, and smoother appearance.

Skincare with multiple benefits

Blemishes and hyperpigmentation, lack of radiance, dryness, wrinkles and firmness... With its comprehensive anti-ageing formula and enveloping, nourishing texture, Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream  is the ideal moisturizer for all skin types. The key ingredient in its formula, TFC8® (Trigger Factor Complex 8), works on the elasticity and firmness of the skin, its texture, as well as the evenness of the complexion, redness, spots, wrinkles, and fine lines. Its formula is also enriched with plant oils and vitamin E to help the skin regain its suppleness and comfort, nourishing it and protecting it from damage caused by free radicals and oxidative stress that accelerate its ageing.

Ask Marion, our Expertise & Experience Director answers your questions: 

What justifies its price?

The star ingredient at Augustinus Bader is TFC8®, which stands for "Trigger Factor Complex." TFC8® is the patented complex derived from Dr. Bader's 30 years of research. Composed of natural amino acids, high-quality vitamins, and synthetic versions of molecules naturally present in the skin, it nourishes and protects while adapting to each skin type to stimulate its natural renewal processes. In clinical trials, TFC8® has demonstrated its effectiveness in addressing various skin concerns, such as wrinkles, redness, pigmentation spots, cellulite, and stretch marks, as well as reducing damage from environmental aggressors. This contributes to the exceptional quality of the formula and the overall efficacy of the product, justifying its price.

Is The Rich Cream comedogenic?

No, not at all! As the name suggests, this cream is rich and very enveloping. It almost approaches a "cold cream" texture because indeed, its formula is filled with good fatty substances: evening primrose, argan, avocado, and sunflower oils combined with shea butter. However, all these ingredients are non-comedogenic. The Rich Cream is perfect if you have normal to dry skin or very dehydrated skin. Feel free to start with using it as a night cream, in a small quantity at first. If your skin is more on the combination or oily side, consider opting for The Cream or The Light Cream.

How can you apply it?

It’s ideal to apply it on slightly damp skin. Therefore, make sure to use your favourite treatment lotion or serum beforehand. This will allow you to use fewer products, and The Rich Cream will be easier to apply. You can also warm it up a little bit between your fingers to make the plant oils more fluid, making its application even easier.

With which active ingredient(s) to associate it?

The Rich Cream is a comprehensive treatment that stands on its own. However, if you want to give your skin an extra boost, you can definitely layer a retinol serum underneath, such as Augustinus Bader The Anti-Ageing Retinol Serum. This should be done only in the evening.

For the morning and in the case of pronounced wrinkles, you can pair it with The Anti-Ageing Serum. Its concentration of sugars, antioxidants, edelweiss extracts, and rice oil will have an even more pronounced effect on skin firmness.
