One of the ear­li­est play­ers on the lo­cal beauty scene, Skin Inc was of­ten mis­taken as a Ja­panese brand, thanks to its min­i­mal­ist pack­ag­ing and so­phis­ti­cated for­mu­las. While their prod­ucts, in­deed, hail from Ja­pan, the brand is very much Sin­ga­porean. Renowned for its range of cus­tomis­able skin­care com­bin­ing beauty and tech­nol­ogy, Skin Inc was founded a decade ago by Sab­rina Tan, 44, who worked in IT for 11 years be­fore ven­tur­ing into the beauty busi­ness. Hence, it’s no sur­prise her prod­ucts boast in­no­va­tions such as en­cap­su­lat­ing ac­tive in­gre­di­ents in seaweed glob­ules that burst upon con­tact with skin, thereby en­sur­ing op­ti­mal fresh­ness and ef­fi­cacy.

The brand has since gar­nered a celebrity cult fol­low­ing – Olivia Culpo and South Korean ac­tress Son Ye-jin are fans – and is now avail­able in over 100 cities span­ning Asia, the U.S., and Europe. “Skin Inc has al­ways been ahead of the game, a beauty dis­rup­tor if you will. Our ‘one-size-fits-one’ phi­los­o­phy is truly bor­der­less and a game-changer,” says Tan.
