The beloved musician Pharrell Williams is launching a new skincare brand featuring vegan products. The new line, Humanrace, is actually the 47 year old’s own skincare regimen and is also formulated to be suitable for all skin types. Williams has developed the line with the help of his personal dermatologist of 20 years, Elena Jones, MD. It includes a trio of products needed for a “three-minute facial,” to “get [you] up on a regular basis feeling empowered.” Williams said, “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. 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.”

According to Jones, the new line has “no rocks, nuts, seeds or plastic particles in our formulas to ensure no microtears occur which can result in damaging your skin.” The new skin line products are: Rice Powder Cleanser, Lotus Enzyme Exfoliator, and Humidifying Cream. According to the brand, the rice powder cleanser is a ‘transformative powder- to-foam cleanser that brightens and hydrates the skin, dissolving excess oil, make up, and impurities’. “We want everyone to get that alchemical sensation of watching something go from a powder in your hands, to adding water, and then the chemistry happens… the Rice Powder Cleanser turns into foam. Like magic, you feel that sensation on your skin,” the brand’s description reads on Instagram.

The packaging includes eco-friendly refillable and reusable containers, made from 50% post-consumer recycled material. The line has debuted exclusively on the brand’s website on November 25th.
