The cream that launched a thousand ships.

Written By:

It all started with Melanie Griffith. Through her sister, the actress was introduced to a serious and perpetually bow-tied physician and biomedical scientist who had spent his decades-long career researching and developing technologies that activate and harness the human body's capacity to heal: Professor Augustinus Bader. She tried his brand-new moisturizer—one inspired by the breakthrough Wound Gel the doctor developed to heal severe skin traumas without the need for surgery or skin grafts—and was beyond impressed. Melanie called VIOLET GREY’s esteemed founder and curator of all things quality and cool, Cassandra Grey, who secured a then-unknown tall blue bottle for herself. The rest, as they say, is history.   

After passing THE VIOLET CODE with flying colors, The Rich Cream landed exclusively on our SHELVES where it quickly became a best seller. It’s powered by the proprietary Trigger Factor Complex (TFC8), a blend of amino acids and peptides that creates and supports an optimal environment for cellular renewal—the very same complex that now fuels the rest of the line. The rejuvenating, do-it-all moisturizer has garnered a diehard, use-it-for-the-rest-of-my-life-level following. Our customers, staff, and Committee members are amongst them, crediting it with the clearing of cystic acne, smoothing of tough-to-treat texture, and restoration of youthful, glowing skin. It has become a worldwide sensation; the new standard for multitasking, efficacious skin care. Below, some of our favorite testimonials. 

“I tend to struggle with dry skin at the best of times, but I had been flying a lot and my skin had become particularly compromised. I wasn’t having much luck with my regular concoctions, but after only two days, The Rich Cream worked like magic. Redness, tightness, and irritation—even my dermatitis—started to subside. By the time a week had gone by, my skin was back to normal, and by week four, the noticeable improvement in brightness, clarity, and elasticity had elicited compliments.”
–MELANIE GRANT, Aesthetician 


“Fine lines and wrinkles appear immediately softened while the complexion takes on a lifted, hydrated, and radiant glow. Perfect as a morning or night cream and unbeatable for pre-makeup prep, this is the holy grail we’ve all been searching for.” 


“I love that it makes the skin look plump and hydrated and sort of glazed. After I use it, I notice that my skin looks like Barbie skin. And for clients, it makes the perfect primer and base for foundation.”
–TROY SURRATT, Makeup Artist  


Augustinus Bader’s The Rich Cream is, of course, VIOLET CODE APPROVED, a superstar best seller, and an official VG OG.
