Pharrell's All-Gender Skincare Line, Humanrace, Announces Restock
Snag the musician’s secret to ageless skin.
UPDATE (December 7, 2020): Pharrell Williams‘s skincare line, Humanrace, sold out shortly after launch last month, a turn of events that didn’t come as much of surprise — after all, it seems the musician is aging in reverse. Who wouldn’t want the secret behind his pristine skin? Following the success of its initial launch, Humanrace has announced a restock set for December 8.
Just in time for the holidays, shoppers will be able to snag all three products in Pharrell’s “Three-Minute Facial” — Rice Powder Cleanser, Lotus Enzyme Exfoliator and Humidifying Cream. Packaged in accessible, braille-lettered packaging and formulated without harsh ingredients, Humanrace is suited to all skin types and tones. Even better, all three products are refillable, helping reduce plastic waste.
Pharrell’s Humanrace Skincare restock launches at the Humanrace website on December 8 at 12 p.m. EST.
ORIGINAL STORY (November 12, 2020): Pharrell Williams has debuted his new skincare line, Humanrace, a three-step system for all skin types, colors and genders. Developed in collaboration with Pharrell’s dermatologist of 20 years, Elena Jones (who deserves an award for the musician’s seemingly ageless face), the collection consists of a cleanser, exfoliator and moisturizer.
Packaged in minimal green tubes, the products look sleek on a countertop or in a medicine cabinet. Embossed with braille lettering, they’re function and accessible, too. Packaging was also developed with sustainability in mind — made of 50 percent recycled plastic, each component is refillable.
The collection’s Rice Powder Cleanser, Lotus Enzyme Exfoliator and Humidifying Cream comprise what Pharrell calls “The Three-Minute Facial.” Formulated without harsh additions such as rocks, nuts, seeds or plastic particles, common additives in exfoliators, the range is safe for sensitive skin. Pharrell and Dr. Jones also adhered to Europe’s stringent, 1,300-long list of banned ingredients.
“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,” Dr. Jones said. Pharrell summed up the line in a brief statement: “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.”
Pharrell’s Humanrace Skincare ranges from $32 to $48 USD and launches on November 25 at the Humanrace website.
