Founder Story — Pharrell Williams

“Humanrace doesn't differentiate by race or gender. We're creating for humans; we are all born in the same skin.”

The World of Humanrace

Our Mission

At Humanrace, we design essential tools for living that support good habits and benefit the mind, body and spirit. We believe that by taking better care of ourselves, can teach us to better take care of each other.

Skincare & Bodycare

Our clean formulas are dermatologist-tested, using only the most effective clinical ingredients, and safe for all skin types. 


We design through the lens of quality, detail and craft. Creating objects that represent a sense of how you'd like to live.


Our collaborations live across fashion, design and music to create lasting moments and forge new communities.

Our Ethics

At Humanrace, creating products for a better life means constantly working to improve our methods of making them. We are dedicated to the pursuit of higher quality and greater sustainability in all that we do, challenging industry standards and practices at every stage of our production process. Our customers’ trust means everything to us, which is why we are committed to transparency about our materials, sourcing and manufacturing practices.

Sustainability and Packaging

Sustainability & Packaging

We take a holistic approach to creating more sustainable products and packaging. This means reducing waste wherever possible, implementing thoughtful design interventions.

Refills & Subscription

By refilling your products instead of replacing them, you are helping us contribute to a significant reduction in single-use plastics and packaging waste.
