Female: Why Luxury Skincare Brands Are Flocking To Singapore
Barely three years old, this cult skincare label, which takes its name from its German founder, is now a Hollywood favourite endorsed by celebrities such as Victoria Beckham.
It was born from brand founder Augustinus Bader’s work as head of stem cell research at the University of Leipzig. Professor Bader made breakthrough developments in skin healing when working with burn victims and later transferred them into creating consumer skincare.
Its hero product is The Cream ($405 for 50ml), a face cream that contains a patented Trigger Factor Complex (TFC8) which supposedly activates dormant stem cells and triggers the skin’s repair process. The brand also includes a face oil ($350), body cream ($250) and lip balm ($60).
