About us About us

FOUNDER, DR. IRIS RUBINHarvard-trained Dermatologist

Haircare is skincare.

Developed by Harvard-trained dermatologist Dr. Iris Rubin, SEEN recognizes that haircare is an essential part of good skincare. SEEN promotes healthy hair AND skin, with patented and award-winning formulas that are clinically proven to be non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and safe for sensitive skin.

After experiencing breakouts that were traced back to her haircare products– Dr. Rubin knew there had to be a better way for me to get the beautiful hair she wanted without sacrificing the health of her skin. It took 4+ years and countless formulation iterations to bring SEEN to life, and Dr. Rubin has done more than simply create clean, effective, and luxurious haircare products that respect the skin. SEEN has helped thousands of people understand that haircare is also skincare and, in the process, changed thousands of lives for the better.

Scented—or not. It’s up to you.

There are many reasons why you may prefer fragrance-free haircare products—but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for anything less than soft, smooth, shiny strands or compromise your skin’s health and comfort. All of SEEN’s fragrance-free formulas have received the National Eczema Association’s Seal of Acceptance™ (which means they are safe for sensitive and eczema-prone skin). Our best-selling Fragrance Free Magic Serum, Shampoo, and Conditioner have also been awarded SkinSAFE’s Trusted Choice seals.

Haircare with a conscience.

Intention is the driving force behind SEEN. We are deliberate when selecting our ingredients—and in our choice to avoid sulfates, parabens, phthalates, dyes, silicones, and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives, as well as many known and emerging allergens.

SEEN has been clean, vegan, and cruelty-free since day one. Our products are PETA- and Leaping Bunny-certified to be free of animal-derived ingredients, and none of our ingredients or final formulas are tested on animals.

committed to minimizing our environmental footprint

We are committed to minimizing our environmental footprint—and continually evaluating our sustainability as a brand. When possible, our eco-friendly packaging includes post-consumer resin (PCR) instead of “virgin” plastic, as well as glass and FSC-certified paper. SEEN also offers Eco-Refill pouches that use 75% less plastic (by weight) compared to traditional liter bottles. 

Loved by dermatologists

Since haircare is skincare, it only makes sense to share SEEN with doctors and other professionals who specialize in the treatment of the skin. As a result, SEEN has received countless rave reviews from dermatologists, and thousands of dermatology practices are currently distributing product samples to patients so they can experience the SEEN difference for themselves.

SEEN is also backed by a syndicate of world-class investors, including some of the most successful entrepreneurs of our generation, as well as Harvard dermatologists and scientists.

“Most people don’t realize that their hair products often cause acne, and can be terribly harsh on skin. SEEN is formulated to be good for skin, with a gentle balance of ingredients chosen and studies by leading dermatologist to avoid acne breakouts. After all, your hair is literally made by your skin, and they should remain good friends!”

Dr. Rox Anderson, Dermatologist

“I’ve been using SEEN shampoo and conditioner and I’m honestly blown away. My hair doesn’t have that waxy, heavy feeling anymore and it’s smooth and soft even without blow drying. I can’t wait to recommend it to my patients.”

Dr. Elizabeth Geddes-Bruce,
Dermatologist, Austin, TX

“My daughter loves SEEN! She used to breakout on her forehead from hair care products, but doesn't when using SEEN.”

Dr. Thomas Yu, Dermatologist, Bethesda, MD

"I like the soft fragrance. I love how the conditioner leaves my hair. My curly hair is frizzy if air dries, but with the conditioner it’s less prone to do this.  I live in Texas. High humidity. SEEN is my fav conditioner :)"
