“If you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin” is the motto of Dr. Saulius Alkaitis; a research scientist with a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of California at Los Angeles. Dr. Alkaitis blends his knowledge of chemistry with his passion for pure, raw, vegan beauty products, to offer this nourishing skin care line that yields noticeable differences in the skin of its users.
We’ve had the pleasure of visiting Dr. Alkaitis’ offices personally, and seeing exactly what goes into his skin care line. This is not just another company that is outsourcing the manufacturing of their product, or taking chances with the ingredients that are used. We’ve personally watched Dr. Alkaitis’ wife hand-mix their product, and go to meticulous lengths to ensure that the product is produced to exact specifications. The ingredients ordered for their product were of higher quality than even we knew were available! One of their production rooms had the most intoxicating smell of organic lavender – we did not want to leave.
What makes Dr. Alkaitis products unique is that only plant-based living ingredients are used in their product. This means that they are naturally free of chemicals, dyes, and any other synthetic material. They refuse to use any genetically modified ingredients, and 100% certified Organic Aloe Vera is the base of all of their products. They also only use Certified Organic Alcohol – better than the kind that you drink!
Because Dr. Alkaitis’ products are all living, they are made within two weeks, or less, of your order date. They do have an expiration date, but if you use them according to direction, you should not have any wasted product.
While Dr. Alkaitis only began selling his skin care line within the last 5 years, he has quickly amassed a celebrity following, and the line has reached near-cult status. Supermodels Giselle Bundchen and Alana Zimmer both swear by Dr. Alkaitis products, and Giselle stated that she cannot live without his Organic Eye Cream.
Perhaps one of the most appealing features of the Dr. Alkaitis skin care line is a lack of overwhelming choices. Dr. Alkaitis’ products are just the necessities. Because he uses only the purest, living, plant-based ingredients, his products are able to be used by all skin types. This makes for a very hassle-free buying experience.
On a personal note, this author has been an Alkaitis devotee since 2008, when I received a basket of his products as a Christmas gift. After one week of using it, I was hooked. My pores looked more refined, and my skin was literally glowing. His products are so creamy, that my nightly skin care routine felt decadent, and the-all natural fragrance is unassuming, and relaxing. It makes every night a “spa experience”. This product line is truly nourishing food for your skin.
