Name: Sabrina Tan
Date of birth: 6 June
Occupation: CEO and Founder, Skin Inc
How she got started: Skin Inc was born from Tan's personal product frustrations and challenges with eczema. In her search for a fuss-free solution, she realised she needed a product that could not only be customised to her changing skin needs, but would also fit into her busy, urbanite lifestyle as a business executive and mother of two. Tan had a hunch she was not the only who had an overpriced beauty arsenal and that suspicion paid off. Coming from the IT industry taught her to think beyond walls and territories, and to create intuitive products for the consumer before they even realised what they needed. This enabled her to merge beauty with technology so that Skin Inc was distinctly ahead of the curve.
Notable achievements: Skin Inc boasts the broadest range of customised skincare products to date, making it a definitive global leader in skincare customisation. As a skincare game-changer it prides itself on disrupting the beauty scene by scaling customisation and leveraging on technology to amplify that concept. The brand has also developed a revolutionary, proprietary algorithm based on decades of skin ageing research, that enables everyone to decode their unique skin identities and concoct a serum cocktail which is unique to them. Skin Inc is currently sold in the region as well as in the US and Spain.
Something you might not have known about her: Tan dislikes the waste of time, regarding it as a valuable resource she cannot afford to waste.
A quote she lives by: "Be the best version of yourself."
