Tell us a little about yourself
Dr. Ankur Sarin : Education-MBBS, MD, MRC P, United Kingdom and fellowship in allergy from Ludwig Maximilian University, Germany
Dr Jushya Sarin : I come from a huge family of dermatologists based out of Indore in MP. But naturally, I was inclined towards this career and I absolutely loved how my parents led a every balanced life, juggling medicine and family life perfectly.
I completed my secondary education, MBBS and my post graduation from Medical schools in indore. Post that I underwent a training for aesthetic procedure in iran and did my diploma in allergy from Munich in Germany.
I am a strong believer of power of social media and always wanted to educate people about skin and hair care so I started my Instagram page.
Please tell us a little about your entrepreneurial journey?
Dr Ankur Sarin : We started as an online consultation platform for a charitable organisation to raise funds for Covid for medical supplies.
The initial three months of consultation fees that we collected was donated to this charitable trust. But after the end of pandemic, the consultation is kept on coming and that is how we started Sarinskin.com which was a portal to take online consultations from us and also purchase our recommended products.
The online consultation picked up big time and we started to do around 40 consultations a day. As the pandemic came to end completely, we opened our own clinic and then started catering to patients from Delhi a lot of patience who were showing us online.
Started to pour in the clinic. With time we have been investing more and more resources and money to grow our online presence and to bring SarinSkin.com on the forefront as a website with Dermatology products recommended truly by dermatologist.
Dr Jushya Sarin : I started my practice in lockdown. With no physical clinic to practice I decided to see patients online.
I collaborated with an NGO and decided to donate my entire sum of consultation fees to this NGO that supplied face masks and sanitisation kits to divide warriors.
A lot of people from my social media page took online consults and help me donate.
One of my patients from the Nilgiris told me it would be amazing if I can send him the medicines too since it’s tough for him to find.
That idea clicked my instantly.
I did this whole research, made a website on my own, given that I had no money back then to hire an agency and listed my products there.
It started worth sending 1-2 parcels to my patients in a day to now shipping internationally to all our patients.
Our followers on social media constantly asked for recommendations so I decided to revamp my website and make it easy for shoppers to choose skincare without consulting a dermatologist.
On our website, you can choose products according to your skin type, skin concern or depending on your budget.
