With four Grand Slam titles to her name, tennis pro Naomi Osaka has made a name for herself in the industry. However, according to Business of Fashion, the star has taken on a new role, but this time it’s in the beauty realm.

This fall, Osaka will debut KINLÒ, a line of products specifically created for darker skin tones—and everything will retail for less than $20. Admitting that she’s only started to wear sunscreen within the past couple of years, Osaka, who comes from a Haitian and Japanese background, says, “What drew me toward this project is having memories of being a kid and not knowing how to protect my skin,” reports BoF. In a recent Instagram post, she writes, “I hope these products can help a lot of people and potentially save lives because I really feel that we aren’t protecting ourselves as much as we could.”

While we have a few months until the products are available for purchase, Osaka gave BoF an inside look at some of her stand out favorites. Included in her list: an SPF 40 tinted face moisturizer, body spray, lip balm, eye cream and a workout-proof SPF 50 tinted face lotion. She also adds that her products are easy to blend, transparent on the skin, and dermatologist-tested.

Not only are her products essential for those with darker skin, they’re also what she calls a public health need. “I used to tell people that I didn’t need to wear sunscreen—but even if you have melanin, you need to take care of your skin, and I am passionate about that,” she says.
