Hi there,

Welcome to the world of Figure 1 Beauty (Fig.1 for short!). We’re a community of skin health experts, helmed by Dr. Courtney Rubin, a board-certified dermatologist, Lizzy Trelstad, a cosmetic chemist, and Kimmy Scotti, a serial entrepreneur and venture capitalist. We're also advised by leading dermatologists and estheticians.

We share a lifelong passion for skincare, as well as a common vision: Demystify and democratize skincare, making skin health achievable for everyone.

We’ve teamed up to rethink skincare and make it work like a charm for you. Enter Fig.1, where we believe you should be able to choose exceptional products and tools, at the right price, to improve your skin health.

Our brand tenets include:

Expert Formulation

Our proprietary formulas are made by experts and backed by clinical data.


Our products deliver clinical results at an affordable price, primarily under $40. We also offer universal access to experts, connecting you with one of our in-house estheticians (licensed skincare professionals) to help you develop and maintain a personalized skincare routine.


Our formulas are primarily packaged in glass bottles with airless, refillable pumps. Our packaging keeps out air, light, and germs, protecting the potent, sensitive actives inside, meaning your product is good until its last drop. If you're running low, you're able to order a refill, reducing waste.

Our estheticians will also recommend for you a skincare routine that maintains the products you already love. This way, we reduce waste.


We bring the science, you the magic - together, we make great chemistry.

My skin epiphany: making sunscreen an everyday habit. When I start my day with sunscreen I know I am making a commitment to my long-term skin health.

My skin epiphany: As soon as I started thinking about my sunscreen as a treatment rather than a task it was easier to incorporate it into my daily routine.

My skin epiphany: Skincare should not cost so much, which is why our team works tirelessly to make our products accessible in price without compromising on our formulations.
