A painful memory from her twenties inspired Rossi Yang to found her sensitive-skin-care company, Decent Rossi, whose products are sold at prestigious National Taiwan University Hospital and Taiwan’s main pharmacies.
“I had a serious problem with my scalp when I was 25… that lasted at least six months,” 36-year-old Yang said, recalling a brush with redness, scaly patches and dandruff.
“During those six months, I kept going to the doctor’s clinic to find out what the problem was. And I did not get better after taking the medicine (prescribed.)”
Yang, who had worked as a professional pharmacist for over a decade, decided independently that her skin condition had probably been caused by the brand of supermarket shampoo she was using.
“I started searching for other shampoo brands that had natural elements without additives. Amazingly I felt better after changing to a new shampoo,” Yang said.
Yang then founded her company last year, resolving to help all those people facing skin problems similar to her own. “Skin is the largest organ of the body, so everything regarding skin care protection plays a pivotal role,” Yang said.
Yang's flagship product is hair wash powder for people with sensitive skin.
