Their Scientific Breakthrough, Our Best Skin
TFC8®, or Trigger Factor Complex, is patented technology that powers Augustinus Bader’s Skincare and because of it we need to be getting these cult-favorite concoctions on our skin asap. Here’s why:
Bader, the bow-tied (and you know how Team W&W loves a bow tie, hint: everyone’s favorite shop dog) professor has spent over 30 years researching and developing technologies that activate and harness the human body's capacity to heal, with a focus on the reawakening of cells that become dormant due to aging or trauma. In 2008 he developed a Wound Gel that promotes the natural self-repair of traumatic wounds at a cellular level eliminating the need for surgery, skin grafts, or scar revision.
Inspired by his deep understanding of stem cell biology, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, Professor Bader developed the patented technology TFC8® - the renewing complex present in Augustinus Bader skincare line and comprised of natural amino acids, high-grade vitamins and synthesized molecules naturally found in the body, TFC8® nourishes and protects the skin while taking a personalized approach to supporting the skin’s innate potential for renewal. This technology is based on the idea that your body has an innate code for tissue repair, the complex essentially unlocks this code, forcing your skin into healing mode while tackling ageing, damage, scarring and dullness in the process. The brand claims that this technology “visibly transforms the skin”, and many consumers seem to agree.
In both clinical trials and consumer studies, Bader’s TFC8®-powered products have proven to address specific concerns such as the appearance of fine-lines and wrinkles, redness, hyperpigmentation, cellulite, and stretch marks as well as visibly reducing the damage caused by external stressors.
Unfortunately for our bank accounts the reviews of Bader’s line are as impressive as the price tag. Five stars everywhere for their ability to plump (after one use most say). Some note a cushion-y bounce, radiance and confidence in their skin without makeup. After a few weeks consumers reported a noticeable reduction in acne scarring and long term results were more even texture and visibly healthy skin. Could it be that our skin will visibly regenerate?
Team Bader and its celebrity-clad hype team says, yes it will! Adding, “while some skincare simply does its job for the day in hand, Augustinus Bader Skincare works to train skin for the long term, promoting skin that looks and feels healthier, firmer, stronger and more even.”
Bader’s team recommends using The Cream or The Rich Cream for 27 days, minimum, with no additional skincare products except for cleanser. Now that shifts the cost quite a bit. If we are able to set aside the slew of bottles we reach for each morning and night for one or two blue and copper adorned containers then, maybe it’s a win for both our wallet and our soon to be baby soft skin?
Are you ready to take the 27 day challenge?
