Good skincare is timeless and can never start too early. Our product range offers tailored solutions for every age group and skin type. Even in your youth, you can benefit from our purifying products, which are specifically designed to address blemishes.

When it comes to anti-aging, we recommend incorporating our products into your skincare routine no later than the age of 20 to 25. During this phase of life, the first signs of skin aging, such as fine lines, collagen loss, or mild pigmentation, become visible. Our highly effective skincare line can help protect the skin from premature aging and preserve your youthful radiance.

Regardless of which stage of life you're in, DOC.BERGER | EFFECT Skincare offers high-quality and effective products tailored to your individual needs, skin issues, and skincare goals.

Morning skincare routine in 5 steps:

  1. Cleansing: Start your day with a thorough cleanse to remove excess sebum, dirt, and impurities from overnight regeneration.
  2. Tonic: Refreshing tonic restores your skin's natural pH balance and prepares it for the subsequent skincare products.
  3. Serums: Highly concentrated serums deliver essential ingredients deep into your skin, targeting specific issues like dryness or wrinkles.
  4. Eye care: The skin around your eyes is particularly delicate. Specialized eye care provides moisture and reduces puffiness or dark circles.
  5. Day cream: Seal your morning routine with our day cream, which effectively shields your skin from harmful environmental factors and boosts collagen production.

Evening skincare routine in 5 steps:

  1. Cleansing: After a long day, it's important to thoroughly remove makeup residue, sweat, and fine dust.
  2. Tonic: A tonic gently removes any remaining impurities and restores your skin's natural pH balance for maximum ingredient absorption.
  3. Serums: Once again, harness the power of serums to give your skin an extra dose of care.
  4. Retinol: Retinol is the wonder weapon against skin aging, blemishes, and pigmentation spots. It can also promote your skin's natural cell regeneration for a healthy, fresh complexion with continuous use.
  5. Night cream: A night cream tailored to your skin type supports your skin's natural regeneration process overnight.

A simple rule of thumb is to go from liquid to solid. Start with the liquid serums (e.g., Hyaluron Lifting Serum), then move on to fluid-like substances (e.g., Booster Serum), and finish with the thicker creams (e.g., Night Ream Rich).

Yes, you can use multiple serums simultaneously. Here's your guide to possible serum combinations:

Morning:

  1. After double cleansing with Foam and Tonic, apply the Vitamin C + Biobotox Serum/Hyaluron Lifting Serum/Booster Serum.
  2. Next, gently pat in the Lifting Eye Wonder.
  3. Finish your morning routine with the Anti-Pollution Day Cream.

Evening:

  1. After double cleansing with Foam and Tonic, apply the Vitamin
    C + Biobotox Serum/Hyaluron Lifting Serum/Booster Serum/Purifying Power Serum/Red & Pigment Remover
    .
  2. Next, apply Retinol and the Eye Cream.
  3. Complete your evening routine with the Night Cream.

The truth is that skincare is not a quick fix; it's a long-term investment in your skin's health. When using our clean beauty and high-tech products, you should plan for at least 2-3 months to see visible results. Why? Because your skin needs time to acclimate to the powerful ingredients and undergo regeneration from the ground up. Our specially formulated products are designed to stimulate your skin to produce more collagen, elastin, and other essential building blocks on its own. These processes take time and continuous application. Your body needs to absorb and effectively utilize the nutrients provided by the products to make actual changes in skin structure. It's easy to become impatient when you don't see immediate improvements, but if you wait the recommended 2-3 months, you'll find that the results are significantly visible and long-lasting.

Facial cleansing is an important step in your daily skincare routine. To achieve optimal results, we recommend cleansing your face both in the morning AND in the evening. The combination of cleansing Foam and a facial Tonic helps to thoroughly remove dirt, sebum, and makeup residues and prepares the skin for the absorption of subsequent active ingredients.

As for exfoliation, the frequency depends on your skin type and individual needs. In general, we recommend 1-2 peeling sessions per week. You can choose between fruit acid peels and enzyme peels. Fruit acid peels are effective in treating fine lines and pigmentation, while enzyme peels are particularly gentle and effectively clear pores of sebum. Remember to apply a rich night cream after each peeling to strengthen the skin barrier and restore moisture balance.

We consistently avoid the use of:

  • Alcohol
  • Dyes
  • Animal ingredients
  • Paraffin
  • Essential oils
  • Silicone
  • Perfume
  • Parabens
  • PEG/PPG
  • Microplastics
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • Nanoparticles
  • Allergen-suspect fragrances

How can the natural scent of DOC.BERGER | EFFECT products be explained?
Have you ever wondered why our skincare products don't have that strong, perfume-like scent you might know from other brands? The reason is quite simple and has everything to do with our clean beauty philosophy. DOC.BERGER | EFFECT relies on ingredients that truly benefit your skin – without any fuss and without the risk of skin irritations.

For us, this means in production: no alcohol, no colorants, no animal ingredients, no paraffin, no essential oils, no silicone, no perfume, no parabens, no PEG/PPG, no microplastics, no phenoxyethanol, no nanoparticles and, of course, no fragrance additives that could irritate your skin.

Our products simply smell natural – like the active ingredients they contain. Retinol smells like retinol, and products for blemished skin with ingredients like salicylic acid and shale oil have their own unique, characteristic scent. This is not a bad thing, quite the opposite!

Now the decision is yours: Do you want skincare that might smell good but isn't beneficial for your skin in the long run? Or are you looking for high-quality, ingredient-rich care that may not smell like roses but delivers real results and keeps your skin sustainably healthy? We at DOC.BERGER | EFFECT have chosen the latter. Because what counts is not the scent, but that your skin gets what it really needs – without compromises.

We use the highly effective transport molecule Phosphatidylcholin (PC) in our products. This special lipid is not only a natural component of every cell membrane, but it also has the ability to deliver nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants deep into the skin where they need to work.

However, the use of Phosphatidylcholin (PC) also comes with a special responsibility. Since this molecule doesn't distinguish between "good" and "bad" substances, it's important that all the ingredients it transports are safe and harmless. That's why DOC.BERGER | EFFECT consistently adheres to Clean Beauty principles: we avoid potentially harmful and irritating additives that are suspected of having undesirable effects on our health.

You should not mix DOC.BERGER | EFFECT products with other skincare brands where the composition is unknown or controversial additives are present. Otherwise, there could be unwanted reactions or skin irritations if PC inadvertently transports harmful or irritating substances from other brands into the skin. The unique properties of Phosphatidylcholin (PC) as a transport molecule offer tremendous benefits for skincare. However, these benefits are fully realized only when they are used in a safe product concept. Therefore, it is advisable to opt for a consistent and well-thought-out skincare routine with DOC.BERGER | EFFECT and not take the risk of mixing the products with other brands. This way, you can be sure that you are giving your skin only the best.

While some brands offer specific skin care products for men, we decided to rethink that approach and go a different route. Our products are designed to meet every individual skin need, although we consciously avoid categorizing our products by gender.
We believe that the most important aspects of skin care are your individual skin type, your living conditions, your age and your personal skin care wishes. Our focus is on developing products that are enriched with carefully selected, high-quality ingredients and specifically tailored to your skin type. At DOC.BERGER | EFFECT is all about personal skin care - we are here to offer the right skincare routine for every individual, no matter who you are.

Our double cleansing with Foam and Tonic, the day and night creams, as well as the anti-aging serums are well-tolerated and can be used without concern. Products from the Purifying line for strongly impure skin, the retinol serums, and the peels should be avoided during pregnancy.

It is always advisable to consult a doctor or dermatologist before using new skincare products during pregnancy to ensure they provide optimal care for your skin without posing risks to you and your unborn child.

Yes, some of our products are available in convenient mini sizes, perfect for trying out or for travel. Currently, we offer the day and night cream, as well as the cleansing foam and tonic in these compact sizes. However, it's important to note that we do not offer test sizes for the other products. The reason for this is that results typically become visible only after a minimum of 3 months of use. The skin needs time to adapt to the high-quality ingredients and effectively repair the skin barrier. Therefore, a test size in these cases would not be sufficient to assess the full effectiveness of the products. With regular and long-term use of our skincare products, you can achieve sustainable improvements in your skin.

If you want to take your DOC.BERGER | EFFECT products with you when traveling, there are some important points to consider to ensure that your skincare products remain safe and ready for use:

1) Seal Check: Before the trip, check that all lids and closures of your products are tightly sealed.

2) Upright Storage: Ensure that the products are stored upright during transport, especially in the high-pressure cargo hold of an aircraft. It's best to use our yellow DOC.BERGER | EFFECT bag to keep the serums and creams stable and prevent them from tipping over.

3) Prefer Carry-On Luggage While Flying: To avoid possible damage or leakage during transport, we recommend carrying DOC.BERGER | EFFECT products in your carry-on luggage.

4) We offer 4 products in convenient travel sizes: the cleansing foam and tonic, as well as the day and night creams. These are the 4 must-haves that should never be missing!
