Augustinus Bader’s pricey “The Cream” is only three years old, so why is it already outpacing industry legends like La Mer and Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair?

Earlier this year, WWD’s Beauty Inc. voted the iconic blue bottle in the #1 spot on its list of the 100 Greatest Skincare Products Of All Time”, as voted by 300 industry insiders. Celebrities are hooked, and sales of the $265 anti-aging moisturizer jumped from $20 million to $70 million in 2020 – pandemic be damned!

Today, co-founders Augustinus Bader and biotech investor Charles Rosier explain the science behind the “self-healing” cream, inspired by the German stem cell scientist’s miraculous wound-healing hydrogel he developed that when applied topically to severe burn victims, eliminated the need for invasive skin grafts and surgeries – with astonishingly superior results.

We’ll find out how this stem cell cream is radically different than any of the other “stem cell” creams lining store shelves; why they recently upgraded the hero formula, and (scoop alert!) what high-tech products you can expect next.
