Our story opens several years ago, when our founder was learning to talk. “Angelique” is a bit of a mouthful for a toddler, so she came up with “Neek”. She didn’t know it at the time, but Neek wasn’t just coining her nickname – she was also creating the name of an Australian natural skincare company.
At NEEK Skin Organics, ethics, and an awareness of our responsibility to our animal friends and to the planet, play a central role in all our business decisions. In many ways, they’re our raison d'etre (a fancy-pants way of saying they’re the most important reason for our existence)
That’s why NEEK is proudly all-vegan, all-natural, and cruelty-free. We want to empower you to make ethical choices around purchasing and consuming, so you can do your part to look after the planet and our furred and feathered co-habitants. As an added bonus, you’ll also enjoy products that are great for your skin – and that actually work!
Like you, at NEEK we’re against animal testing. So growing up, our founder Angelique smothered her two sisters (never her brother ?) in natural oils and foodstuffs as she experimented with different combinations.
Nowadays, we take a rather more scientific approach to testing. But we still test our natural makeup and skincare range on people’s sisters, and not on our animal friends.
You’ll be pleased to learn that our preference for natural and vegan products means that a nature-friendly approach comes naturally to NEEK. Not only do we avoid nasty, synthetic chemicals – we also use sustainable, recycled and recyclable packaging, and keep outer packaging to a minimum to reduce waste. We also send our orders out in plastic-free compostable satchels - so you can enjoy guilt-free beauty products that work.
NEEK founder Angelique only had to think about parabens for her face to blow up, so she quickly learned which ingredients to avoid, and experimented with creating her own cleansers, moisturisers, and more.
It soon became apparent that what your skin needs is simple, so simple, it can be found in nature without harming bees, sheep or bunnies? While the folk in white lab coats still play an essential role at NEEK, they’re not busy inventing more things for you to be allergic to. Instead, we create makeup and skincare products from natural, active ingredients. These scientifically-proven ingredients are so natural, you could spread them on your toast in the morning (though we don’t claim they’d be delicious). But even better, the ingredients we use are essential for skin health, and help slow your skin’s aging process.
NEEK’s product range is made from truly natural, vegan ingredients. And while they may be natural, NEEK products aren’t brown, and they don’t smell like porridge. Instead, our range is full of beautiful shades and scents, presented in pretty eco packaging that we hope you’ll love as much as we do.
We currently have a range of natural vegan lipsticks and the first products of our skincare range. Stay tuned though as we have loads in the pipeline.
Want to enjoy guilt-free beauty products, and look after your skin and the environment? At NEEK, that’s what we’re all about.
