First Aid Beauty (a.k.a. FAB) provides must-have skin care products that belong in everyone’s beauty cabinet, no matter age or skin type. FAB was founded by Lilli Gordon, a long-time beauty veteran inspired to elevate the drugstore classics with scientifically advanced formulations and luxurious consistencies.
Gordon—who also believes that hard-working, irritant-free skin care doesn’t have to be greasy or bland—created a comprehensive collection that ranges from everyday essentials to products that provide intense therapy for serious skin problems (including facial redness and eczema).
All FAB products are allergy-tested and free of parabens, fragrance, and harsh chemicals, and perfect for even the most sensitive skin—now that’s true First Aid Beauty.
