It is with a heavy heart that I must share some very sad news.
My beloved parents both died within months of each other in 2021; my father, Dr Saulius Alkaitis, of pneumonia and then my mother, Paula Alkaitis, followed him to the heavens. Only just now has the shock lessened enough to share this with you, our Alkaitis community.
Saulius left us with a treasure trove of golden formulations, a library, and research that we will carry on with. Dr Alkaitis Organics was one of the very first organic skin care brands, established in 1996, and we will keep his legacy alive and thriving.
We will continue to uphold the highest, most meticulous formulation and manufacturing standards, education, and customer service.
Please join me now in celebration of the lives of two great teachers:
The chemist, Dr. Saulius Alkaitis, PhD, and the artist, Paula Alkaitis.
Here's to honoring their legacy with the next generation in the 21st century!
My family, our incredible team members and I thank you for your continued love and support.
To your health and beauty,
Trish Alkaitis, CEO
Living tribute: I invite you to share any of your reminiscences, messages, and photos in the comments below or on social media:
"Do you have the internal fortitude to think independently"
- Dr. Saulius Alkaitis
As a practicing LMFT for 3+ decades, I imagine that theirs was a love of abiding support and profound connection that your mum couldn’t bear to be without her beloved. They also must’ve known of your strength and resiliency, Trish, to be able to carry on while honoring and celebrating - even amidst your heartbreak - the love they gave to you. May your mourning be embraced by wonderful memories and warm gratitude for their gifts to you. My sincere condolences.
I’ve been using Alkaitis products since 2005 and swear by them. Never was there a more loving reason for a product launch, or a more effective motto for the wholesome than: If you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your face! I’m so grateful for their love and legacy! May they forever rest in peace.
I am so sorry to hear that both of your parents have passed. My sincere condolences! May the memories you have with your parents bring you joy, laughter and peace.
I had the pleasure of speaking to Saulius many years ago when I chatted with him on the phone about his formulas. I’d discovered Dr. Alkaitis skin care while having a fantastic facial in CA. I was working in the organic beauty industry at the time and wanted to introduce his products to my clients in CO. He left the world better than he found it!
