"I often affectionately refer to our products as
high vibration skincare because they are just that;
nature at its fullest potential, harnessed in a bottle."
Alchemy, Life, & Legacy
Twenty-six years ago, my father, Dr. Saulius Alkaitis gifted these products to my mother when he discovered that the ingredients on her supposedly ‘natural’ skin care products were in fact not safe to use on her skin and contained harmful chemicals.
As a chemist, he had full knowledge of the effects and consequences of using these chemicals and it was easy for him to dissect these ingredient labels quickly and get a snapshot of the future damage they could cause to the body.
He took all his research and plant knowledge and went to work using an absolute formulating guideline “if you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin”™. He insisted on working only with edible, certified organic, biodynamic, and ethically wild-crafted ingredients of the highest quality from around the world.
Around that same time, I had my own skincare troubles that included a bout of adult cystic bleeding acne from cheek to cheek, I turned to my father and pleaded for his help.
He sent me the very first formulas in stock bottles. After just a few days of using them, my skin (after two solid years of struggling) calmed down dramatically; and I immediately named him a ‘Genius’ and myself his ‘human test subject’ and have never looked back.
These products changed my life. They restored and nourished my skin in ways that I was told would never be possible without more aggressive internal and external treatments.
They remind me every single day to never forget the power of plants and nature. To fully acknowledge and embrace a balanced holistic lifestyle that will always activate one’s inner + outer true health and beauty.
It is truly a great honor to passionately continue his legacy.

"If you can't eat it, don't put it on your skin"™
"I only formulate with the highest quality edible organic, biodynamic and ethically wild-crafted herbs, plants, seeds, (sea) vegetables and oils in their raw state. My scientific knowledge and expertise in plant life allow me to fuse science into a holistic approach.
My art comes in the creation of a unique intermingling of ingredients that creates a synergy which allows your skin to benefit entirely from their therapeutic value; it’s like painting with nature.
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. When your skin is dry, oily, sensitive or acne prone, it simply means your skin is out of balance. My Holistic Skin Food helps to bring your skin into a balance that is ideal for you; my products are adaptogens for the skin. All our products are formulated and manufactured by me."
- Dr. Saulius Anthony Alkaitis (Founder)
The "Godfather" of organic skin care
Insiders of the green beauty scene often affectionately refer to Dr. Alkaitis as “the Godfather of Organic Skin Care”. During the very early 1990’s he became aware of all the potentially harmful ingredients that were in the skin care products his beloved wife Paula and daughter Trish were using. To protect their health, he used his extensive plant research and plant knowledge and began developing and formulating high performance skin care working only with completely clean, edible ingredients. He introduced the first products of his line in 1996. A true pioneer in the field, he was the first that started formulating with the strict guideline that we still use today.
Healthy, living plants, suffused with the energy of life are the foundation of our products.

Plant extraction techniques that work with the raw whole plant; root, stem, leaf & flower.
Dr. Alkaitis was firmly rooted in the world of science and had a deep understanding of the majestic world of plants. The extensive research he conducted in the world of medicinal plants convinced him that there is only one rational approach to achieve timeless beauty: formulating products that are brimming with the extraordinary properties raw whole plants can provide us.
In order to preserve the phytonutrients and therapeutic value of the high-quality ingredients, Dr. Alkaitis developed sophisticated plant extraction techniques that allowed him to work with raw whole plant; root, stem, leaf and flower. The therapeutic value of a plant is found in the plant as a whole, not just in a specific part. The extracts are combined into signature complexes. The unique intermingling of ingredients in these signature complexes act as adaptogens.
Our skin care is raw; We manufacture the products without ever heating ingredients above body temperature. This allows all these beautiful ingredients to remain full of enzymatic activity and in turn give full therapeutic benefits to your skin.
Think of our products as health food for your skin
Dr. Alkaitis comprehensively studied the skin’s tasks, its interaction with, and reactions to, various influences. From this knowledge comes his holistic approach to skin care; he treats the skin as the whole living organism it is, not as a collection of concerns. It is important to know that when your skin is dry, oily, acne prone or you're experiencing eczema, rosacea, perioral dermatitis or cystic acne, it simply means your skin is out of balance.
Like you, your skin is a tremendously complicated living and breathing entity that is constantly subject to change. It is interlaced with your outer and inner self.
If you're experiencing stress, are heartbroken or make a change in your diet, your skin can react to that change. Your complexion might look duller, be more sensitive and prone to inflammation. On the other hand, you can radiate when you're happy, in love or sleeping well.
How could one categorize such an ever-changing wondrous organ...?
That is why Dr. Alkaitis does not develop products for fixed skin types, instead he works with the intelligence of raw whole plants to develop signature complexes that act as adaptogens. The signature complexes make our products adaptogenic; they regulate your skin rather than pushing in one direction or the other. Our products help guide your skin into its own unique balanced state and help to maintain that balance. Think of them as health food for your skin.

The location in which plants grow affects their life force and life potential
Dr. Alkaitis only formulates with organic, biodynamic or wild crafted herbs, plants, seeds, sea vegetables and oils in their raw state.
All our ingredients are of an excellent quality and sourced from the world’s most pristine places. For plants to bequeath us with their optimal life force and life, they have to exist in a living environment. The soil must be alive; the air must be alive.
Healthy, living plants, suffused with the energy of life, are the foundation of our products. The location in which the plants grow, affects the life force and the life potential of the plants. There are certain areas of the world where the cosmic, spiritual and earth forces intertwine to create an exceptionally potent environment for life.
From these special places all over the world we source our ingredients from growers and wild crafters Dr. Alkaitis personally knows and trusts. He developed these relationships over decades of professional and personal interaction and monitors the quality of their practices and procedures strictly. We call this process: 'Boutique Agriculture'. Our ingredients and products are never tested on animals.
