I have such a passion for skincare, particularly results driven organic skincare. Here on Nourished Life we have a huge range of brands that offer natural and organic products that really work. One of these superstar companies is Dr. Alkaitis. Their motto is "If you can't eat it, don't put it on your skin", which I agree with one hundred per cent. It's so important that we know exactly which ingredients are being applied to our skin. Just like we wouldn't eat chemicals, we should never accept them in our skincare. With an emphasis on balancing skin and seeing results, Dr. Alkaitis is a fantastic brand that you should learn more about!
So what makes Dr. Alkaitis skincare so amazing?
Dr. Alkaitis is a very unique skincare company. Everything from their manufacturing process to their choice of ingredients is carefully selected.
All of the Dr. Alkaitis products are hand manufactured in small batches in California. How impressive is that! You can actually find this brand stocked in the top salons and spas across New York and California!
Dr. Alkaitis are so committed to quality that they use their own extract techniques that preserve the goodness in each plant ingredient. All of their wonderful ingredients are raw which actually means they are never heated above body temperature! With a focus on achieving results, Dr. Alkaitis skincare works to preserve and bring about balance, no matter your skin type or ethnicity!
What ingredients can you find in Dr. Alkaitis products?
The ingredients that Dr. Alkaitis uses are grown by wild crafters that he knows and trusts personally. This type of close relationship with suppliers is a rarity these days! Dr. Alkaitis monitors the quality of his ingredients very closely and works with harvest seasons to get the best quality plants. The formulation of his products are made with the very best organic, biodynamic or wild crafted herbs, plants, seeds, sea vegetables and oils.
One of the Dr. Alkaitis ingredients that helps feed skin, is Magical Forest Mushroom Complex. Mushrooms are fantastic skincare ingredients as they are considered adaptogens, meaning that they bring homeostasis (a healthy balance) to the skin. This potent ingredient has the ability to enhance the cellular and immune functioning of the skin, increase regrowth of cells and moisturise the skin.1 Mushrooms can also stabilize the collagen production in our skin and work as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.1 They really help to slow down the ageing process!
What qualifications does Dr. Alkaitis have?
Dr. Saulius Anthony Alkaitis is the founder of Dr. Alkaitis skincare. He is a research scientist with a PhD in Physical Chemistry and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. If that's not impressive enough, he's also a molecular biologist, ethnopharmacologist and pharmacognosist! Through his studies, grew his passion for skincare. With so much experience in the field, he really knows his stuff!
What products from the range do I recommend?
Although I'm a huge fan of all of the Dr. Alkaitis products, these are some of my favourites that we have available here on Nourished Life.
Dr Alkaitis Organic Ageless Facial Elixir
I've often raved about this Dr Alkaitis Organic Ageless Facial Elixir and for good reason. It's incredible! This holistic, wild crafted blend of potent and regenerative ingredients will nourish your skin like nothing else. Made with cold pressed virgin oils of Andiroba as well as pure plant extracts and oils, this elixir works to support cell renewal and strengthen your skin's natural barrier. It also refines pores, smooths the skin's surface and offers the skin a beautiful glow.1 It also protects your skin from environmental damage and feels silky smooth to apply. To use this gorgeous product, dispense two pumps onto fingers and massage into the face, neck and decolletage. I recommend using it twice daily.
Dr Alkaitis Organic Eye Cream
To minimize fine lines, puffiness and dark circles around your eye area, it's important to use an eye cream. This Dr Alkaitis Organic Eye Cream is formulated using a potent list of ingredients including Rosehip Oil, Aloe Vera and Green Tea. It's a natural anti-ageing blend that is both firming and moisturising. It protects the skin from environmental damage and leaves you looking refreshed and awake. It's no wonder why model Gisele Bundchen is a fan! To use, pat a pea size amount under your eyes and on your eyelids daily.
Dr Alkaitis Organic Night Creme
Night creams are so crucial for beautiful skin. As our skin is more regenerative at night, using a great night cream may help improve the quality of our skin as we sleep. I love this Dr Alkaitis Organic Night Creme because it's so moisturising. It's formulated with Vitamins A, B & C which restore and rejuvenate! If you're concerned with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, then you need to get your hands on this product. It's so soothing and even refines large pores.1 I recommend using it every night after cleansing.
Dr Alkaitis Nourishing Treatment Oil
If you're looking to splurge on a hard working skin treatment, I can't recommend this Dr Alkaitis Nourishing Treatment Oil enough! It's often referred to as a miracle in a bottle because it targets just about every possible skin condition. Whether you're concerned with acne, dry skin, sun damage or wrinkles, this oil is perfect for you. It can be used on both the face and body. The best time to apply this treatment oil is after bathing or showering. Simply apply with your fingertips wherever you need it. You can even use this product as a hair oil! Just apply to the scalp and leave in for 20 minutes or so.
Dr Alkaitis Organic Herbal Toner
Another great multi purpose product is the Dr Alkaitis Organic Herbal Toner. It works not only as a toner, but also an astringent, skin balancer and after sun calming treatment! It's also great for anyone who struggles with acne or inflammation as it has anti-inflammatory properties. This toner is not at all drying and actually hydrates skin. Dispense a small amount onto your fingertips and smooth over the entirety of your face. Use daily!
