OUR STORY
Skin Down to a Science

As scientists stemming from academia, we don’t believe the hype. We think beyond the books by searching the globe for novel botanical ingredients that help us break boundaries in the beauty world. Then, we put them to the test to prove the power of nature. Our goal is to create clean solutions for your skin that are backed by serious science.

In order to deliver the best, we stand by our skincare every step of the way. We don’t take shortcuts. Whether it’s sourcing new ingredients in the field or extracting, purifying, and designing formulas in the lab, we oversee every aspect of the process in house to ensure scientific integrity. Rigorously tested via independent clinical trials, our potent natural actives developed with pioneering technology are what put our products a step above the rest.

Packed with botanicals proven to work better than harsh chemicals, our 9-free formulas leave out suspicious synthetics and toxins. If an ingredient doesn’t safely serve your skin, we skip it. Equal parts clean and effective, our products deliver noticeable results. Because seeing is believing. And making a visible difference in your complexion is what keeps us motivated to move skin science forward.

CLEAN AND CUTTING-EDGE
9-Free Cosmeceuticals
NO SLS/SLES
An inexpensive cleanser that strips lipids from the skin, which damages the natural skin barrier and causes irritation.
We use mild surfactants made of amino acids or plant-derived glucoside.
NO Parabens
Traditional preservatives that can disrupt the body’s endocrine system.
We use advanced preservatives derived from natural sources that pose a low risk of skin irritation.
NO Mineral Oil
A liquid commonly derived from petroleum that may contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (i.e., cancer-causing chemicals found in crude oil and its by-products).
We use naturally sourced or ECOCert®-certified oils.
NO Propylene Glycol
Also known as 1,2-propanediol, this synthesized material can irritate skin.
We use 1,3-propanediol made from corn sugar.
NO Synthetic Dyes
Derived from petrochemicals, dyes may cause allergic reactions, skin sensitization, and eye irritation.
Free of any artificial dyes, the colors of our formulas come only from our high-quality ingredients themselves.
NO Hydroquinone
This controversial and antiquated lightening agent is toxic to melanocytes and may cause skin discoloration.
We use award-winning, next-generation ingredients that are both potent and safe for use on all skin tones.
NO Phthalates
Commonly found in fragrance and nail polish, these chemicals have been linked to hormone disruption.
Our formulas are completely void of dibutyl phthalate (DBP), di-2-ethylhexylphthalate (DEHP), and diethyl phthalate DEP.
NO Formaldehyde Releasers
These traditional preservatives can be absorbed through the skin, leading to allergic reactions and hormone disruption.
We use advanced preservatives derived from natural sources that pose a low risk of skin irritation.
NO Fragrances
Both natural and synthetic fragrances can contain hundreds of undisclosed chemicals, many of which are considered allergens.
Our formulas’ subtle scents are the result of our ingredients themselves. We never add any potentially irritating perfumes.
Beyond Clean Beauty
Novel
We don’t rely on external suppliers. Instead, we discover and develop new game-changing ingredients ourselves. Then, we deliver them straight to your skin.
Effective
Science is our foundation. In the lab, we isolate and extract potent natural actives that are rigorously tested and backed by independent clinical trials. In short, our formulas are proven to work.
High Quality
Not all products are created equal. Our formulas are made with the purest ingredients to maximize efficacy and minimize skin irritation to keep you safe.

We believe innovation in ingredients achieves better efficacy
