About us - Our story
On a stressful day, I was rushing home from work still with a handful of things left on my to-do list. It was my turn to cook that evening and my fiance had just texted to ask when I should be home. I also need to pop into the pharmacy to relieve my sore throat and grab some dental floss; I’d been meaning to go for a few days but just never found the time, what with constant meetings and deadlines due at work.
This recurring event on my to-do: go to the shop for health products, is what has become the seed for the idea behind founding medino.
We have been searching, but unable to find a truly digital online retailer of health and beauty products - It is now very common to order groceries to your doorstep, or shop clothes conveniently, and with quick and smooth delivery as well as returns.
However, you and I still go to the pharmacy down the street to buy medicines or health and beauty products. This needs to change and we believe it is time to set a new standard for health and beauty shopping online.
We are on a mission to make health and beauty shopping more convenient whilst maintaining the high-quality services our customers would expect from a traditional pharmacy. The team behind medino all have a digital background and we are applying new digital advances to make shopping more convenient for you.
Together with you, our customers, we want to develop the type of shopping experience that we ourselves have been missing: Join us in making health and beauty shopping digital with medino - The Pharmacy in Your Phone.
