The Speak Collective’s Story
The Speak Collective was founded in 2017 by cousins, Nisa and Mutiara.
The Speak Collective had a rather unconventional lightbulb moment for a skincare brand. While the love of skincare was already humming in the background, the passion was slowly brewing for years and was almost ready to delightfully consumed the founders.
The need for skincare suitable for sensitive skin began out of necessity 3 years ago. Eczema terrorised Nisa, so she began reading labels, investigating ingredients and sought to reduce the number of products that could aggravate her condition. Still unsatisﬁed, she started making her own facial cleanser in powder form and shared it with friends and relatives, including business-minded Tiara. After formulating her own skincare, Nisa discovered her passion in this and went on to acquire a Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation from Formula Botanica.
The tinder to The Speak Collective’s ﬂame was, unusually, a passing of a dear relative. A grievous moment brought the founders together, which led to a conversation that sparked an idea and morphed into an obsession and ﬁnally the creation of speak in December 2017.
The name The Speak Collective is named after the brand to embody beauty beyond skincare. They believe that ‘speak’ is a message for all women to start loving themselves and accepting themselves while having great skincare products to help them on the journey.
The Speak Collective’s values are Truth, Love and Respect.
- Formulate their products to bring your skin back to its naturally healthy, optimum state.
- Being fully transparent with ingredients used in their product.
- Making sure that their products are tested in independent labs before it hits the shelve.
The Speak Collective’s products are all vegan-friendly and suitable for those with sensitive and troubled skin. It uses the ‘less-is-more’ approach to formulate their products and by letting the quality of the ingredients speak for itself.
The Speak Collective advocates for contagious positivity, humor and kindness. They believe that what you say to yourself and others is equally as important as your skincare regime.
Being mindful of the environment, all of their packaging is recyclable. In place of bags and boxes, they have partnered with NGOs that upcycles excess fabrics into mini totes to give these unwanted fabrics a new home. This is their way of showing respect for the environment and our community.
The Speak Collective is also partnering with One Tree Planted, where every RM1 from the sale of each of their product goes towards planting trees in an attempt to continuously give back to the planet.
