Defy age just like Pharrell with his new skincare brand, Humanrace

Launching on November 25, the first product drop mimics the singer and producer’s own routine

Along with the likes of Keanu Reeves and Angela Bassett, Pharrell has seemingly not aged for the past 20 years. ‘What’s his secret?!’ you may have found yourself wondering while looking at his blemish-free complexion. 

Well, ponder no more as the singer/rapper, producer, designer, and entrepreneur has just added another string to his bow, announcing the launch of a new skincare brand called Humanrace. “I wanted to share my 20 years of skincare experience and education through this product and routine. 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,” he explained on his new venture.  

Developed alongside Pharrell’s dermatologist, Dr Elena Jones MD, the skincare range will launch on November 25 with three vegan products – he’s dubbed it the ‘Three Minute Facial’ – that are similar to the routine he uses himself. First up, a Rice Powder Cleanser to remove excess oil, followed by a Lotus Enzyme Exfoliator, and finally a Humidity Cream boosted with snow mushroom extract for extra nourishment. 

With sustainability always being an important factor for him, the packaging is made from more than 50 per cent recycled plastic from landfills. It was also important for Pharrell to note that the range is for everybody, all skin types and genders (it is just a construct after all). “Humanrace Skincare doesn’t differentiate by race or gender,” he says. “We’re creating for humans; we are all born in the same skin and Humanrace celebrates this.”
