FAQ

How do I know which products will work for me?

Just like our fingerprints, no two skin types are the same—a bestselling product that works for others may not work for you in the same way.

If you’re unsure about which products to explore, you can take our in depth routine builder quiz and we’ll curate a personalized skincare regimen that’s best suited for your skin type and concerns.

Tell me more about how you choose these products.

Gladly. The short answer is that we do our research, and we research hard. We make sure that all our products are effective, safe, and not just riding on the hype.

The long answer is that our curation process is rigorous and data oriented. We start with identifying the need (like a lack of products made for men), then research into brands that meet that criterion. For many of the brands, we work directly with the founders to give us in-depth insight into the results they had with their products, and their brand DNA.

We then create our assortment by looking at their line of products, the formulation, and the individual ingredients; it’s important that they are effective, meet their claims and most importantly are safe for our customers to use. Once we have selected the products, we then apply for Philippine FDA certification. This is a process we take seriously that some other platforms do not comply with. All products sold on The Collective have FDA approval in multiple countries ensuring quality and safety.
