Dr. Saul Alkaitis’ nourishing skincare company was one of the pioneer brands in the “spa-grade” healthy beauty space. Dr. Alkaitis uses his PhD in Chemistry and background in ethno-pharmacy and molecular biology to create incredibly powerful, nourishing products for the skin—so that it can absorb and benefit from the nutrients. At Follain, the Dr. Alkaitis brand is best known for the quote on the side of the product boxes: “if you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin.” These are words to live by! We had the opportunity to meet Saul's daughter (and head of marketing), Trish, and were overwhelmed by her sweet demeanor, and her amazing skin! She inspired us to create Follain, years before we launched! All Dr. Alkaitis products are made in Sacramento, California and Miami, Florida—with organic, biodynamic, and “living” ingredients only.
