The New Standard in Skincare

We’re On A Mission:

To care for your skin with pure and powerful ingredients sourced from nature. This may sound like something you’ve heard before, but in an industry known for false promises and greenwashing, we’re here to do better.


Healthy Ingredients for Healthy Skin

For far too long the skin care industry has profited from serving us unhealthy ingredients and false promises. We believe you deserve better. As an ingredient focused skin care company, our passion lies in sourcing the very best from nature. That means organic, cold-pressed oils, therapeutic plants, mineral clays and hydrosols. We never use highly refined ingredients that have color and scent removed. Using ingredients in their most natural state ensures that all of the benefits and nutrients of each ingredient, such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, remain in the final product. We like to consider our products as topical superfoods for your skin, so to speak. That’s why our formulas have natural colors and scents — never clear or odorless — so what you see and smell is nature in its purest form, ready to care for your skin to the fullest.


Quality Determines Results

When it comes to natural skincare, quality determines results. That’s why we specialize in sourcing high quality, organic ingredients from conscious growers and distilleries in Europe and beyond. We select our ingredients based on quality, purity and performance. We spent the last decade curating the finest botanical oils, mineral clays, hydrosols and antioxidant-rich plants. Sourcing ingredients that are best in class and of the finest quality ensures your skin is receiving all the skin transformative nutrients and protective antioxidants necessary to support healthy skin function and deliver results.


Small Batch Formulas for Optimal Freshness

The skincare industry norm involves stockpiling mass produced products loaded with cheap fillers and harsh preservatives that allow for a three year shelf life. We believe you deserve fresh skincare. Our small batch formulations are made in-house by the Root Science team. This allows us to not only handpick who and where we source ingredients from, but create fresh batches as needed. We believe in creating thoughtfully made products — by people who value the health of its customers over cutting corners and costs. We’re passionate about small batch skincare as it allows for higher quality standards, while delivering products at peak freshness and efficacy. Each step of our process is a labor of love by people who care about you and the planet.


Skin First Formulas

In a cluttered industry that favors scents, colors and trends over the health of your skin, you deserve better. We create formulas that address real skin needs and concerns, never scent, colors or trends. We rely on the science behind the healing power of plants to create formulas that support healthy skin function. Not all natural ingredients are fit for skin care. Which is why each ingredient that goes into our bottles is selected for its topical benefits, scientific backings and skin compatibility. You will not find cheap fillers or harmful synthetics in our formulas. We create skincare formulas that deliver results you can see — and feel good about.


Sustainably Responsible

We care about the impact we have on our planet, after all, we do get our ingredients from mother nature — if she’s not healthy, neither are we. We are committed to implementing sustainable practices into every aspect of our business, something that is an ongoing process. To date, we exclusively use recyclable glass bottles instead of plastic, including our samples and travel size products. We use sustainably forested paper boxes to house our bottles. Our shipping boxes are made from 100% post-consumer recycled cardboard and we use biodegradable shipping peanuts when sending large orders. We opt for digital receipts instead of paper. These are just a few of the ways we are trying to do better by mother nature and we will continue to make improvements to reduce our carbon footprint.
