Let’s get to know each other

At Care/of, we help people see real results from their health routine by building custom vitamin and activity plans based on their unique needs. Our whole experience is backed by science and designed by our team of naturopathic doctors. From our products - whether it’s our personalized daily vitamin packs and powders through our direct-to-consumer business, or our multivitamins and blends with our retail partners Target & Sam’s Club - to our innovative iOS and Android health app, our experience is designed to close the feedback loop and take vitamins from can’t hurt to really helps. By providing personalized ongoing guidance, habit help, and efficacious formulas, we aim to help people feel their best, while we do the hard work for them.

Since our launch in 2016, we have raised capital from top investors including Goldman Sachs Investment Partners, Tusk Ventures, Juxtapose, and Bayer. We’ve been highlighted for our innovative work in the category by publications including TechCrunch, Forbes, Inc., Vogue, and the New York Times, and pride ourselves on investing in our people, building a best-in-class hybrid team with a hub in Brooklyn. In 2020, Care/of was acquired by Bayer, expanding our ability to connect directly with new and existing customers and elevate our unwavering commitment to delivering results through science-backed guidance, quality ingredients, and habit-building technology.
