Dr. Saulius Anthony Alkaitis is a highly regarded research scientist with 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 ethno-pharmacologist (trained in traditional plant-based healing,) and a 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 ‘living’ personal-care lines available on the market today.
Dr. Alkaitis only formulates with organic, biodynamic, or wild-crafted herbs, plants, seeds, sea vegetables, and oils in their raw state. The result is effective raw skin food that treats your skin as the whole organism it is, filled to the brim with exactly the nutrients your skin needs to radiate a healthy glow. Dr. Alkaitis makes his own extracts, using sophisticated techniques that allow him to work with the intelligence of raw whole high-quality plants; root, stem, leaf, and flower. Being able to preserve the integrity and therapeutic value of a whole plant in an extract is both an art and a science.
Boost your complexion and look radiant with Dr. Alkaitis's soft lightweight Organic Day Crème. Rich in anti-oxidants and brimming with natural vitamins, this cream deeply moisturizes and softens your skin. A silken, lightweight blend of deeply moisturizing components, enriched with the protecting antioxidant power of a meticulously composed collection of raw whole plant extracts.
Dr. Alkaitis' Crèmes are all developed with the unique oil of the Sacha Inchi seed. This oil is one of the highest plant sources of Omega-3 essential fatty acids known in nature and is one of Dr. Alkaitis' personal favorite oils. Among the combination of the carefully chosen raw extracts are the antioxidant-rich Centella Asiatica and Tussilago Farfara which form the base for a cream that is formulated to deeply moisturize while protecting the skin from damage due to pollution and environmental stress.
