If you’re another beauty junkie like myself and probably half the world’s population then you have most likely stumbled across skin care brand Merumaya. A brand I’ve probably heard the endless amount of times on social media by fellow blogging friends that have highly praised the company’s products especially the now well known melting cleansing balm.
THE FOUNDER MALEKA
Having great success working for other luxury skincare company’s, Maleka was partly the reason why brands like Clinique, Origins and Lancôme are as successful at this very moment. Maleka knew how to make a brand successful, so in Spring 2010, Maleka decided to create her very own brand Merumaya. This enabled Makela to fulfil her wildest dreams, to have her own skin care brand. Maleka has been one busy lady! You can read more about the founder here.
HOW THE NAME ‘MERUMAYA’ CAME ABOUT?
As founder Maleka states “By the way, MERUMAYA is a made up name”
Created by taking the very first letters of her father, mother, herself and daughter (ME-RU-MA-YA) It was, in fact, the name Maleka’s father would call his brand.
The creation of Merumaya skincare starting in early Spring 2010, the brand officially launched in October 2012. With the products first available to buy online followed shortly in 6 selected John Lewis stores and John Lewis online in January 2013, Merumaya was beaming with success. Today, Merumaya is widely available in over 20 John Lewis stores. Are you a regular QVC viewer? Then you have most likely seen Maleka on your big screen at home.
