BADASS FUEL — Fuel for Badass Women 

Scientifically Supported Ingredients | Support, Not Replacement | Non-GMO 

Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge — and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation into my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements. Trusted for myself and my patients, and under the guidance of your own healthcare provider, I’m excited to invite you to check out our foundational product line: Badass Basics. Learn more or order the products yourself by visiting!

“Skin is our largest organ. It’s our magic mirror that gives us great clues about our overall health.” — Dr. Trevor Cates 


“Just like how we can have leaky gut, we can also have leaky skin.” — Dr. Trevor Cates 


“I think a lot of times, people forget what they’re putting on their skin and how it can get absorbed into their system. … Not that you need to be able to … eat everything that you put on your skin, but it is a good test to … stop and say, ‘Would I put this in my mouth?’” — Dr. Trevor Cates 


“One of the biggest mistakes that people make in their skincare routine is the first step which is cleansing. A lot of people use foaming cleansing and bars of soap … [but] they have a high pH and they … strip the skin.” — Dr. Trevor Cates 


“You don’t need different skincare systems for different skin types because you’re talking about supporting the health of the skin [and] supporting the skin microbiome.” — Dr. Trevor Cates 


“I think it’s so important to follow your passion.” — Dr. Trevor Cates 


“[Our skin] is an outer reflection of our health. So helping people transform their skin is really important to me.” — Dr. Trevor Cates
