All About Nécessaire
The Clean Body Care Line That Packs A Serious Punch.
Created by beauty veterans Randi Christiansen, a former exec at Estée Lauder Companies, and Nick Axelrod, co-founder of Into The Gloss, skincare line Nécessaire has an impressive pedigree and is commited to doing clean beauty right. Launched in 2018, Nécessaire, was born out of a desire for “necessary” bodycare products that not only worked wonderfully and looked great, but also put sustainability at the forefront. “We named the brand Nécessaire because it is the filter by which we do everything,” says Christiansen. “It has to be necessary: The ingredient. The product. The footprint."
Since its launch, Nécessaire has become a favorite of beauty editors and has been credited with redefining body care by using facial-grade ingredients that are suitable for everyone–even those with sensitive skin–thanks to their wide range of fragrance-free formulas that adhere to the EU's strict formulation standards. “Nick and I really felt philosophically that skin doesn’t stop at the neck, and we very much felt that there was not a good solution for the neck down in terms of clean, effective skin care,” Christiansen explains.
Built upon the belief in less but better, the range features a tight line up of unisex essentials in minimalistic, ecofriendly packaging. The company is also climate-neutral and plastic-neutral certified and received their B Corp certification, which is designated to companies that meet the highest standards in accountability, transparency and, performance. “My dream was to create the Patagonia of beauty. A responsible brand that’s doing the work, but is not uber loud about it,” says Christiansen.
Bestsellers in the award-winning range include The Body Wash, which contains ingredients like niacinamide, vitamin C and vitamin E; and The Body Serum, formulated with five different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, vitamins B5 and B3, and ceramides.
