Skincare can be confusing. We’re here to clear things up.

our philosophy

With so many options and conflicting messages, navigating skincare can feel complicated and overwhelming. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, so we don’t preach one. Instead, we’ve worked hard to develop innovative, streamlined formulas and provide straightforward product information so that you can make the best, most empowered decisions for your skin. MATTER OF FACT is clinical skincare, simplified. 


Breakthrough formulas with clinically-backed results and beautiful textures.


Research-backed ingredients with robust track records for efficacy and safety.


Consumers in their unique skincare journey with streamlined solutions and straightforward product information.

a note from our founder

Like most people with a deep interest in skincare, mine started with trying to fix my own skin issues. I was quickly met with what felt like an ocean of products and mixed messages. Did skincare have to be so difficult to navigate? 

My personal struggles first led me to the library, and then to the lab in an effort not only to learn how to care for my own skin, but to develop products that I could share with everyone. 

MATTER OF FACT is a reflection of the truths that I learned on my skincare journey. With those truths, we hope to help you on yours too. With us, you will always get thoughtfully formulated, research-backed products and straightforward product information. Some might call that being honest to a fault. We call it being MATTER OF FACT
