Our Story

We were born from the belief that there is no one size fits all and that each person deserves a product just for them, tailored to their hair, skin types, goals, and preferences. Because we are rule breakers, scientists, data nerds and engineers at heart, we just decided to create it. Function of Beauty was born.

Our Approach

We start with carefully chosen ingredients, selected for their safety and performance. We then design each unique formula to match your hair and skin type, structure, goals, and preferences. All our formulas are vegan, cruelty free and undergo
 a rigorous testing process that includes dermatologists and stylists. Our products are made to order in the US in our state-of-the-art facility.

Our Impact

We are committed to operate responsibly and work hard towards a more sustainable future.
