The current US Open tennis champion continues her victories from the tennis court and launches her own skin care line Kinló. The beauty line will focus on the needs of blacks and people of color (POC).
Naomi Osaka, 23, announced the product launch through her Instagram account, which has more than 2 million followers.
“I never thought I’d ever start my own business, but I’m very excited to announce that I will be launching KINLÒ, a new brand of skin care products designed to protect and rejuvenate mottled skin tones . I hope these products can help many people and possibly save lives because I really feel that we are not protecting ourselves as well as we could. More to come this fall @kinloskin! #STAYGOLDEN #KINLOSKIN “
“What attracted me to this project is the memory of being a child and not knowing how to protect my skin,” she said, according to RUSSH. “I only recently started wearing sunscreen. For me, this project requires more than just being a speaker. This is a public health need. I used to tell people I don’t have to wear sunscreen – but even if you have melanin, you have to take care of your skin and that’s my passion. “
We’re excited to introduce you to KINLÒ, a new functional skincare brand specially developed for people with melanized skin tones, created by @naomiosaka!

The name of the beauty skin care line Kinlò is derived from Osaka’s Japanese and Haitian heritage. “Kin” means “gold” in Japanese and “lò” is another way of saying “gold” in Haitian Creole.
Osaka, currently number two in the world, has made nearly $ 20 million in her professional career. She has won four Grand Slam titles.
