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.”
