What does it take to start a business? For many, it involves a whole lot of grit, determination and passion.
But at the same time, it is their source of inspiration that keeps many business owners motivated. This March 8 on International Women's Day, the world comes together to celebrate the achievements of women everywhere once again.
Singapore has seen a steady increase in the number of entrepreneurs and start-up founders over the years—including within competitive industries such as the beauty and cosmetics market.
For IWD, we speak to five female beauty brand owners in Singapore and ask them to share their biggest inspirations and how they stay focused in order to achieve their goals.
1. Sabrina Tan, founder of Skin Inc
“Tired of my vanity graveyard, I founded Skin Inc with a radical leap of faith and from the belief that there is a custom beauty for every you. At Skin Inc, we celebrate the uniqueness of each individual with customised skincare fused with the latest technology to determine what your skin truly needs, especially since individual lifestyle choices and environmental stressors affect up to 80 per cent of our skin.
I want Skin Inc to be recognised as the most innovative skincare, wellness and technology company that harnesses the power of AI & Skin Inc Cloud to deliver customised skincare on demand, resulting in healthy glowing skin. I'm motivated by the need to improve the quality of life for time-starved individuals everywhere through the disruption of the traditional skincare paradigm.”
