Messages from our Founders

Experiencing irregular skin texture to chemical and second-degree burns from the sun,  my early years really helped me see the importance of understanding and listening to  one’s own skin. I found fulfillment in creating and curating products that work, and that  is what led to the beginnings of The Collective. 

Our Mission is to aid in your discovery of what works best for your skin’s state. We  want to guide you to feeling your best, not push you towards beauty standards. I’m not  The Collective – we all are. 

I’m so excited to be able to bring in more representation into the Beauty marketplace;  to create a space where inclusion is at the heart of what we do. 


Co-Founder and Director of Merchandising & Marketing 


In a marketplace that has become confusing due to the overwhelming amount of  information and options, it’s refreshing to have a convenient online store with a  curation of products you can trust. I suffer from dry and oily skin, and as a teenager, I  was prone to acne. I didn’t have access to proper information or products that were  right for me, leading me to use ones that only made it worse. 

With The Collective, I have found an opportunity to solve for others the same  difficulties that I encountered in the past and continue to face today. As a male, I often  find it awkward to read up on skincare, go to a store, or ask for expert advice. We aim  to change this for me, for you, for everyone, and I am thrilled to share that change with  you.
