Japanese personalised healthcare/skincare company, KINS Co. Ltd (hereinafter KINS), has today announced its expansion into Singapore and the launch of its skincare line in the city-state. KINS specialises in subscription-based products that use probiotics to improve health and wellness.
KINS also plans to open its first KINS CLINIC in Singapore by the end of 2022, which will focus on specialist consultation to improve chronic diseases using probiotic treatment.
Yutaka Shimokawa, CEO and founder of KINS said: “Before I started KINS, I was suffering from chronic ailments such as frequent diarrhea and sudden hearing loss, and the company I worked at treated patients with bacteria-based preventive medicine. After personally experiencing the effects of such treatment which led to my recovery from these ailments, I decided I wanted to help people in and outside of Japan who suffer from chronic illnesses that may actually lead to something worse. Singapore is the perfect hub for us to start and expand our operations from.”
The made-in-Japan skincare product line that will be made available in Singapore includes supplements and serum that can be applied to the skin. Both products are recommended for use together as a skincare regimen, and can be bought on the KINS official online store or through the official Shopee merchant site:
・SUPPLEMENTS: Retailing at S$127 (nett) for a bottle of 60 tablets, SUPPLEMENTS contains 22 types of probiotics, including lactic acid bacteria (Lactobacillus), yeast, natural nutrients produced by lactic acid bacteria, and more, and helps to regulate the intestinal environment which can lead to improvements in common physical ailments such as constipation, skin problems, sleep issues, menstrual pain, and more.
・BOOSTER: A booster lotion that retails at S$107 (nett) for a 50ml bottle, designed to maximize a healthy skin condition. The lotion is made up of soy-based Lactobacillus, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae extract, and rice fermented liquid.
