Becoming a huge success while staying true to ones core principles is not an easy task, especially if you're a natural and holistic formula based company, but Dr. Alkaitis Organics is living proof that pursuing a courageous venture and staying true to a sustainable philosophy can lead to great success .
In 1996 when plant based organic products were a novelty, Dr. Alkaitis was preparing for his life long journey into the beauty and wellness business. Unbeknownst to him, he would soon be a name admired by many dewy faced health enthusiasts and fashionistas.
There are many reasons why Dr. Alkaitis brand is a success. Firstly all the organic skin care products are made with edible living ingredients— certified organic/biodynamic and wildcrafted herbs, fruits, (sea) vegetables and virgin, cold-pressed plant and essential oils. They are sourced solely from vetted individual farmers and wild-crafters worldwide. All of the products and herbal extracts are made in-house without the use of chemicals. The outcome is a dynamic and healthy “living’” skin care line that produces instant visible results.
The story behind the beginnings of this exquisite brand is simply endearing; Mrs. Paulina Alkaitis was always looking for the right kind of products for her skin and her husband, having a PH.D in chemistry, volunteered to help her. He formulated what we now know as one of the world’s most biologically active skin care line.
'The primordial attractor is health. If your skin glows with health, it is attractive, irrespective of gender, race or age'.
Dr. Saulius Alkaitis is a highly regarded research scientist— he has a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from the University of New Mexico. In addition to being a chemist, he is also a molecular biologist, an ethnopharmacologist (trained in traditional plant based healing) and pharmacognosist (experienced in the medicinal properties of plants.) With his scientific knowledge and expertise in plant life, he fuses both disciplines into a holistic approach, creating one of the most dynamic personal-care lines available on the market today.
When interviewed by Saffron magazine Dr. Alkaitis commented:
'My approach takes two critical aspects of skin into account: One is that your skin is a living organ. Our bodies evolved interacting with complex living food. Living food is necessary for the promotion and maintenance of optimum health. This leads to the first of my foundational guidelines in formulating my products: If one feeds a living organism healthy living food, it will be healthier. The primordial attractor is health. If your skin glows with health, it is attractive, irrespective of gender, race or age. The result is a line of products that will adapt to each individual’s skin’s needs. There is no need for a product for oily skin, for dry skin, etc. The products address the imbalances in the organ as a whole and help bring it into a balance that is ideal for that individual. My products are adaptogens for the skin'.
