Product description

The Essence by Augustinus Bader gently exfoliates while enriching the skin with a powerful combination of Bader’s TFC8®, a rich complex of natural amino acids, vitamins, and synthesized molecules to promote the skin’s natural rejuvenation process. Blended with Hydroxy Acids, Phytic (AHA), Salicylic (BHA), and Gluconolactone (PHA), it removes impurities while enhancing the skin’s ability to retain moisture. In addition, Wasabi Ferment defends skin from environmental aggressors, and White Peony Flower hydrates and protects from pollution.
