Pharrell and GP Talk Clean Skin Care

To say that Pharrell Williams skin is glowing and youthful must be the all-time understatement. “Yes, people have always asked me about my skin,” says the Miami-based record producer, stylist, rapper and now beauty and fashion entrepreneur, in an extraordinary conversation with GP on The goop podcast. Her new brand, Humanrace, which includes skincare, is in typical Pharrell fashion, deeply considered, elegant, forward-thinking in terms of sustainability and amazing on every skin type. “It’s so beautiful,” says GP. “I love packaging, sustainability: it’s so good.”

The Human Race is a line of three fully refillable essential products that people, of any skin type or color, age or gender, can use alone or in combination with other skin care products. It is the second category of Humanrace products, after a collection of Humanrace x Adidas sneakers. “We are all pluralists,” says Williams. “I think it’s a natural thing for an artist, or anyone who has chosen different mediums or disciplines to express themselves, to transform something they’re interested in into a business. Why would you like Not do you want to apply your art lens to some new product, process, experience or design? ”

Williams brought together the best in the industry and even invited her New York-based dermatologist and friend Elena Jones, MD, to bring the line to life. “We considered everything from the color, texture and feel of the products on the skin to what it feels like to hold the bottles in your hand,” he says.

The result is a three-step routine for beautiful, fresh skin that works regardless of skin type. “My fourteen-year-old son, Moses, stole it from me; he likes it so much, “says GP.” It’s a perfect microcosm: skin care that both mother and child are excited to use. “

  1. STEP 1:

    Rice Powder Cleanser – starts as a powder and turns into a frothy lather when you activate it with water – dissolves oil and makeup with kaolin clay, rice powder and fruit derived alpha hydroxy acids , as well as moisturize with snow mushroom extract.

  2. STEP 2:

    Lotus Enzyme Exfoliator, a thorough detox that smoothes pores, combines glycolic acid and exfoliating enzymes with antioxidant lotus leaf to smooth dead skin cells and make skin resurface. It is gentle enough to be used every day and leaves the skin silky and refreshed.

STEP 3:

Finish with Moisture Cream, an intensely moisturizing blend of plant-based squalane, hyaluronic acid and calming tiger leaves that’s both rich and light as a feather. The name suggests the shimmering sheen the cream deposits – similar to the sexy warmth your skin might radiate after a tropical vacation.

All three formulas are odorless, gentle yet potent for skin balance and gender neutral – a touch point for Williams, whose famous epic style (bright pink cardigan, stacks of Chanel pearl necklaces, sunglasses retro sun cat-eye, giant fedoras) avoid binary gender rules. It’s also inclusive: “Our packaging has braille,” he says. “How can you be ‘Human race’ without braille?”

The human race is as clean as possible – in wording, as well as in its footprint on the planet. “We wanted to do everything just fine,” says Williams. “We use a lot more PCR [postconsumer recycled plastic] than we do with virgin plastic. Let’s make sure we are refillable. Let’s go beyond what Europe allows. “Humanrace follows European Union guidelines in excluding ingredients deemed unsafe (1,300 ingredients are banned from beauty and personal care products in the EU, while a total of eleven are banned in the US), and it’s also fragrance-free and vegan, and it’s contains no essential or mineral oils, nuts, seeds, or plastic particles.

The outer packaging – a beautiful “green heart chakra,” notes GP – contains refill containers made from over 50% post-consumer recycled plastic. And the containers are heat sealed instead of a plastic cap, a process that saves around 1,200 single-use plastic caps per hour during production.

“If we want to be in this space, we have to make it better than we found it,” says Williams. “And we have to be friendly with the other brands, the ones that are doing well that we can learn from. We will be competitive, like we are running a race, a human race, but we don’t look to our left and right to beat anyone. We are moving forward. And we’re pushing things forward. “
