Naomi Osaka has made her first foray into beauty.
In April, the tennis player announced she was launching Kinlò, a skin care line designed specifically for those with darker skin tones. The products launched Tuesday and are available online on the official website. The line includes sunscreen, after-sun recovery mist, eye cream and lip balm.
“I’m so excited to share Kinlò with you! I founded Kinlò to address a public health need around skin cancer prevention within our POC communities,” Osaka said in a statement on the brand’s Instagram account. “Tennis can be challenging at times, but it has given me this platform which I am so grateful for. It allows me to help others in ways I wouldn’t have imagined otherwise.”
The name “Kinlò” is inspired by Osaka’s multicultural background, as the word derives from the Japanese and Haitian words for “gold,” according to the brand’s website.
