All Augustinus Bader formulas contain the patented TFC8® technology – a tissue renewing complex that promises to nourish, protect, and train your skin’s resilience so it not only feels healthier, firmer, and stronger, but also looks more even over time.

Their latest launch, The Light Cream, is a weightless moisturizer made for oily skin types and perfect for Singapore’s climate. The lightest of four moisturizers in their skincare range, The Light Cream is super hydrating but dries to a matte finish. It addresses the root cause of sebum overproduction so you look shine-free, while maintaining optimal hydration levels for plumped, happy skin. This moisturizing powerhouse is also clinically proven to minimize pores, tackle hyperpigmentation, and reduce wrinkles. Eco-conscious beauties will be pleased to know that it’s formulated with sustainably-sourced, high potency botanicals and bio-engineered clean actives, where possible, to reduce environmental impact.

In case you need more convincing, flawless babes the likes of Alexa Chung, Michelle Yeoh, and Lizzo have incorporated Augustinus Bader products into their beauty arsenal – a testament to how the brand delivers for all ages and skin types.
