Biography was founded out of the belief that the secret to beautiful skin lies in natural oils and not synthetic moisturizers. I discovered face oils through a French pharmacist who custom blended one for me that worked miracles. It was at that moment when I became Oil Obsessed. -Linda
I used my learnings to launch my ultimate story, called Biography, in 2020. Biography activates the highest quality natural oils to create visibly effective skincare products. While the core of the Biography line is the 3 Facial Oils, we are expanding our reach to hands and body. Your face is the soundtrack of your life. In essence it is your Biography showing the impact of the sun, stress, joy and environment on your personal journey. Because no two faces are alike, we developed “Les Trois” with individual differences in mind, and are continuing our active oil-infused ethos throughout the brand. -Linda Thompson, Founder and CEO .
We are pioneers in active oils for face and body, creating luxurious oil-infused products that embrace your skin…and your story. Our naturally powerful formulas are exquisitely crafted with clean & sustainable ingredients, and blended to create intriguingly complex scents, silky textures, and a highly sensorial experience.
Clean. Luxury. Beauty
Biography is a plant-based skincare brand that embraces minimalism. To us, it's not about having less, but about choosing wisely. Our products are carefully formulated with oil-infused, high-performing ingredients for visible results. We use only what's necessary, so you get the most effective results from the gentlest treatment, without any unnecessary fillers.
Biography is for people who love their face, embrace their story, and welcome change as a positive force. It’s also people who are looking for a new source of beauty—who are dissatisfied with dirty ingredients out there, unsustainable practices, ineffective fluff, or that creeping feeling that a brand thinks you’re “not their ideal customer.” Welcome to a new kingdom where efficacy and sustainability reign, and acceptance is the coin of the realm.
We know nature to be bold, dramatic, and full of surprises—but saw that ‘natural beauty’ brands were flat, sterile, and predictable. With our deliberate use of vibrant color, Art Deco grandeur, and modern graphic elements, we’re revealing what’s really ‘natural’ in beauty: namely, power, intrigue, and a bit of whimsy too. You'll see this approach at every level of Biography, from our energetic visuals, uncompromised ingredients, and sustainable practices. Because nature always has a new story to tell us—and we're listening. The Biography visual identity, internal logic, and character arc was created by New York-based Creative Director Adrianne De Loia.
We believe what looks good should feel good—and act good. We have designed every milligram and micropixel of Biography to be in harmony with your skin, the planet, and each other, all coming together in a new approach to natural beauty that’s anything but boring.
The New Natural
If Biography were an art movement, it would be called something like The New Natural School, adapting the fluidity and color of expressionism and the careful editing of digital art, and using these influences to redefine how ‘natural’ products can be presented and imagined: as powerful, intelligent, and desirable. Our products not only treat you well; they’re also designed to be a treat to see, have, and hold. Making them lovely is our way of honoring the contents within and your own personal context without.
We realize that the only products you truly love (or need) are the ones that become an integral part of your story—that make for a real change, a meaningful difference, a new chapter in your biography. Thus the name was born. This is profoundly personal beauty that puts your story first, and looks forward to all the changes ahead.
We believe in beauty that’s as good for you as it is for all the other animals, plants, people, and planets out there. All our ingredients are sustainably sourced, ethically gathered, and packaged in recyclable, earth-friendly ways. We’re proudly cruelty-free and vegan, because no one should have to suffer for you to thrive. Read more about our principles and practices here.
