Naomi Osaka has officially joined the beauty industry.
The tennis player has announced the launch of her brand new skincare line for melanin-rich skin tones.
The brand name, KINLÒ, a combination of the Japanese and Creole translations for the word “gold”, pays homage to her roots, while the idea for the line itself came after her bad experience with a sunburn.
After getting burnt in Australia, Osaka started using sunscreen, but she found it difficult to find a product that wouldn’t leave a residue behind.”
She subsequently teamed up with dermatologists and set out to create a line that would blend with melanin-rich skin while bringing awareness to the importance of skincare, especially in the prevention of skin cancer.
