Pharrell Williams Launches An All-Gender Skincare Range Called Humanrace


“Sometimes you need to cleanse your spirit. Sometimes you need to cleanse your mind. Sometimes you’ve just got to get rid of some dead skin.”

That’s what, the never ageing, Pharrell Williams told Allure and we all know he’s right.

We’ve known for a long time that when it comes to skincare, Pharrell Williams is always right and now he’s sharing with us mere mortals the secret behind his perfect skin.

“I wanted to share my 20 years of skincare experience and education through this product and routine. It’s created to take three minutes morning and night. Your face is the result of the spirit behind it, it’s important to take care of your skin and to also take time for yourself each day,” Pharrell said.

He’s teamed up with his dermatologist of 20 years, Dr. Elena Jones, to develop a skincare line that consists of three vegan and sustainable products called the Humanrace.

A Rice Powder Cleanser, Lotus Enzyme Exfoliator, and Humidifying Cream have all been engineered to deliver optimal exfoliation and hydration to support lasting skin health.

Dr. Elena says, “This routine is formulated from Pharrell’s skincare experience and we wanted to choose ingredients that are clean, effective and friendly for all skin types. We adhered to the European standard of 1,300 banned ingredients as an important starting point and then we went further to develop our own restrictions. We worked to create products that had no rocks, nuts, seeds, or plastic particles in our formulas to ensure no microtears occur which can result in damaging your skin.”

Giving us an indication as to why he called it Humanrace, Pharrell explained, “Humanrace Skincare doesn’t differentiate by race or gender. We’re creating for humans; we are all born in the same skin and Humanrace celebrates this.”

“We just want to make things better. We want to democratize the experience of achieving wellness. And I’m not trying to be like any other wellness brand out there. That’s what they do. That’s what they give. Ours is all based on results and solutions and sensations. We wanted to look at sensations. I mean, we live in a world that needs it.”

Humanrace will launch on the 25th November. Follow them on Instagram to find out more.
