Dr Alkaitis Holistic Organic Skin Care - New Instore

About the brand

Dr. Alkaitis is a high performance, “living” skincare line, created by the highly regarded and world-renowned scientist, Dr. Saulius Anthony Alkaitis.

Dr. Alkaitis treats the skin as a living organ, and if you feed an organ healthy “living” food it will be healthier. Dr. Alkaitis’ extracts and products are all made in-house ensuring they contain only “living” ingredients. “Living” means the highest-quality plants, left in their natural state, rather than having their potency diluted in a laboratory.

Plant extracts are often broken down into “actives”, taking what is seen as the therapeutic content, and discarding the rest. This goes against dr. Alkaitis’ ethos of celebrating the full power of plants in their biological state. All the extracts contained within dr. Alkaitis skincare are never heated above the body’s temperature, so preserving and increasing their therapeutic benefits.

All products are handmade from start to finish with Certified Organic & Wild Crafted Food-Grade Ingredients.

Dr. Alkaitis: “I really did not start out with the purpose of making ‘organic’ skin care products. My aim was to make skin care products that promote and support a healthy skin in a holistic manner, products that anyone’s skin would be absolutely thrilled to interact with and visibly express its satisfaction. These products are designed to simultaneously help bring the skin to homeostasis, a state unique to each individual, and to help maintain it.”

Skin conscious
Because it is a range of truly pure and natural skincare, Dr. Alkaitis products work with your skin’s natural functions – not against. Due to the “living” complexity of the formulations they act like adaptogens for the skin, adjusting to each individuals unique skin type, so bringing the skin into balance. Therefore you won’t find separate products for oily, dry or sensitive “types”. The products correct the individual balance of the skin of each user to bring it to optimum health, and to quote Dr. Alkaitis: “a healthy skin is a beautiful skin.”

History in your hands
In working with “living” materials, Dr. Alkaitis carries on an age-old and almost forgotten tradition. From the first civilisations, there has always been a sophisticated knowledge of the natural world. This natural approach to healing has a long and honourable history of preserving the body’s health and well-being. In comparison, synthetic products have been in use for little more than a century, and their effects are still largely unknown

Dr. Alkaitis has studied under and conducted plant research with four Nobel prize recipients.

In the 70’s, Dr. Alkaitis was invited, with 19 other young scientists from all over the world, for the very first month-long workshop at Cold Springs Harbor Laboratory, Long Island. It was given by Dr. James D. Watson, a seminal figure in modern biology, who together with his colleague Crick from Britain, received the Nobel for the discovery of how genetic information is stored and transferred by DNA, making them the founders of modern biology. The workshop was on genetic engineering.
Dr. Alkaitis’ in-depth plant studies exceed levels that few people have achieved as a chemist, a molecular biologist, an ethnopharmacologist (traditional healing forms using plants), and pharmacognosist (medicinal properties of plants).

As a research scientist working with cancer treatments including plant use, Dr. Alkaitis, became convinced there was a correlation between our society’s dependence on synthetic chemicals and the rapid increase in cancer and other degenerative illnesses.

Dr. Alkaitis uses his wealth of knowledge on the medicinal and therapeutic benefits of plants, to create skincare products that work with the health of the body. He does not tinker with them to create the synthetic hybrids common in today’s skincare industry. He has achieved a level of studies and research in plant life and their healing properties that few people have attained; these achievements qualify him to create the ultimate in true organic skincare. He believes that although you cannot stop the aging process you can affect how you age.

With his scientific knowledge and expertise in plant life, he has the unique advantage to fuse both disciplines into a holistic approach, hence creating one of the most dynamic personal-care lines available on the market today.
