Pharrell’s Humanrace Ventures Into Suncare

Pharrell Williams is making his first foray into sun care. His product company Humanrace will debut two refillable SPF 30 products, which are both made from mineral-based formulations. The expansion continues Humanrace’s commitment to formulas for all skin types.

This venture has been two years in the making, and with it, Humanrace seeks to tackle the misconception that sunscreen is not necessary for people of color and those with deeper skin tones.

Our Earth’s ozone layer naturally protects us from harmful UV radiation from the sun, but we still need to protect ourselves daily from the UV rays that get through. We believe there is room under the sun for everyone, and we all need to be wearing sunscreen daily.

Developed with the help of Pharrell’s personal dermatologist of 20 years, Dr. Elena Jones, the new line emphasizes that everyone needs to protect themselves from the sun, no matter their skin color.

The myth that dark skin can go without sunscreen originates from the fact that melanin — the substance that produces pigment in the skin, eyes and hair — helps absorb harmful UV rays. Basically: the darker your skin is, the less likely you are to get sunburned. Despite melanin’s protective properties, melanated skin is still susceptible to the effects of sun damage, including dark spots, wrinkles, and skin cancer.

The biggest misconception is that deeper skin tones don’t need sunscreen, but no matter what color your skin is, all skin tones need a daily sunscreen, rain or shine. I have patients every day asking what they should be doing to care for their skin, the easiest thing to do is start wearing sunscreen daily.

Because there’s less awareness surrounding the necessity of sunscreen for dark-skinned people, Black patients are more likely to be diagnosed with skin cancer at a later stage, resulting in a worse prognosis. In fact, a study conducted by the CDC showed that the five-year- melanoma survival rate among Black folks was 66.2 percent, compared with 90.1 percent for white people.

The launch consists of Ozone Face Protection Daily Moisturizer and Ozone Body Protection Cream, they work in tandem to protect and hydrate your skin from head to toe. Vegan, fragrance-free, with PA ++++ protection, the Ozone Protection Set is the final step in your routine, rain or shine.

Humanrace Ozone Face Protection Daily Moisturizer

Created for daily use, the Ozone Face Protection Daily Moisturizer leads the charge. A mineral SPF 30 made with effective ingredients for your skin. Formulated with non-nano zinc oxide and the company’s signature snow mushroom extract and blue light protection for a sheer, white cast free finish for hydrated, protected skin.

Humanrace Ozone Body Protection Cream

Next up is the water-resistant (40 min) Ozone Body Protection Cream, a mineral SPF 30 without the white cast. This formula dual-functions as a hydrating body cream. Squalane, jojoba seed oil and aloe work with our signature snow mushroom extract to hydrate the skin.

Refillable

The new refillable products come in bold orange packaging crafted from 50% post-consumer recycled landfill plastic, and consumers will be able to refill their sun care empties at a discounted price. The body cream and face moisturizer will each retail for $58 and $52, respectively, or consumers can buy the Ozone Protection Set, which includes both products, for $94.

The Humanrace Suncare line will officially launch for U.S. and European consumers on the brand’s website on July 14, they will be available before then exclusively for attendees of the musician’s music festival, ‘Something in the Water’, taking place in Washington, D.C., on Juneteenth weekend, June 17 to 19, and to Humanrace subscribers. 

Considering Pharrell’s shockingly luminous skin, you’ll want to heed his advice: sunscreen, always! Come into the beautiful world of Humanrace.
