In IN’OYA, what your daily work?
As a product manager, I am the voice of the black woman, and mixed mate, I express expectations, I explain its problems, I communicate his wishes to the teams of research and development, but also those responsible trade issues. My job is also to simplify and popularize the scientific message because you‘d expect, there is a world of difference between the work of our researchers in the Faculty of Pharmacy in Marseille and the perception of black women & mixed for whom these issues often boil down to a spot on the skin. My role is to explain why IN’OYA products are effective, how to use them for best results, and what treatment protocol should be followed for the treatment to be effective.
How your brand is innovative?
