Welcome to our world


Growing up sucked! As someone who always had skin that didn’t look like what I saw in my favorite TV commercials and magazines, I grew up thinking there was such a thing as “perfect” skin & that I had to have it. Now I know that you make skin look good - not the other way around.

Science-backed formulas

Created by experts

Made for every shade

At Topicals, we only use ingredients and herbals that have been scientifically-proven via third-party, peer-reviewed clinical studies. We formulate in partnership with our scientific advisory board. We are constantly improving our formulas based on customer feedback and new clinical findings to ensure that our products work effectively, efficiently, and gently on all skin types. Topicals products are always free from dyes and animal testing.

People with chronic skin conditions are 2-6 times more likely to experience anxiety and depression. Why? Because we’re taught to aim for perfection when life (and skin) is fluid and messy.

Topicals donates a percentage of our profits to important mental health movements to help raise awareness around the connection between mental health and skin health. To date, we’ve donated to mental health organizations like Therapy for Black Girls, Fearless Femmes 100, Sad Girls Club, and JED Foundation. When you support Topicals, you support mental health advocacy for those who need it most.
