Our History


Amedico Laboratories was founded twenty-one years ago by Dr. Henry Chan and his wife, Winnie. They wanted to utilize the experience and expertise pharmaceutical scientist Dr. Chan had attained over the years to develop over-the-counter drug products for domestic as well as international markets. However, Amedico took an unexpected change in direction when Winnie asked her husband to develop a skincare product for her since the products available on the market were expensive, ineffective and even caused reactions on her skin. Dr. Chan developed a cream that utilizes natural mechanisms and processes for Winnie's personal use. With the prompting of friends that both witnessed and later experienced the results of Dr. Chan's cream, Henry and Winnie decided to develop high-end skincare products for consumers with sensitive skin.

Winifred Skincare was launched in 1992 with Dr. Chan's first formulation, Winifred Daily Moisture. Over the next couple of years, Winifred Skincare expanded its product line with an overnight cream, toner and a cleanser. Winifred Skincare was well received during its initial launch including partnerships with a high-end boutique and a beauty salon in Buffalo, NY. However, when Henry and Winnie's son, Brian decided to pursue his MBA at the Johnson School at Cornell University, one of his project teams was able to perform some market research and further develop our product. With the help of the students and faculty at Cornell, Amedico made some improvements to its product line and has now relaunched its skincare line. In addition to the addition of its new eye cream, Amedico's entire product line is now available to the public as MAYLÁN Skincare.
