WHO I AM
1. SKIN CARE PHILOSOPHY
Good face cream should be like a fresh meal for your skin! To nourish it, the formula’s active ingredients must be able to reach live skin cells.
2. HOW I DEFINE SUCCESS
I feel very successful when grateful clients tell me that, because of my skin care treatments and products, they look and feel better than they did 15 years ago!
3. SKIN CARE INGREDIENT THAT MAKES ME CRINGE
Many ingredients make me cringe! For some reason, propylene glycol, a very common and unnecessary solvent, comes to my mind first.
4. HOW I START MY DAY
With meditation and giving thanks for everyone and everything in my life.
5. FAVORITE SKIN CONDITION TO TRANSFORM
Really challenging complexions, such as serious acne, rosacea, or melasma cases.
6. FAVORITE SKIN CARE INGREDIENT
I have many favorite ingredients and cannot limit myself to one, so here are two: organic sea buckthorn extract and fulvic acid.
I enjoy quiet time in nature, being around water, time with my dogs and cats, listening to classical music, and attending the opera. I have been married for over 30 years to a professor of music who is a wonderful violist. I also love to read; my favorite author is Anton Chekhov.

TO THE FUTURE
Every day, we hear from more skin care professionals in search of corrective, fresh, and organic skin care products. My goal is to continuously upgrade my production facility to meet this demand – without compromising my high-quality standards. I also want to continue to educate professionals on how to offer natural, corrective, and effective results for their clients.
OUR LEADING LINE
Ambra-Lift Skin Elixir
Elina Organics’ Ambra-Lift Skin Elixir helps to lift, tone, and smooth skin. State-of-the art genomic testing shows it increases the expression of Sirtuin-1 – a key antiaging gene. Active ingredients include sea buckthorn oil and Baltic amber – prized for centuries for its antiaging properties.
HOW I’M BREAKING THE MOLD
EDIBLE-GRADE EDIBLE-GRADE AESTHETICS
“I believe that a good face cream should be like a fresh meal for your skin! This is what my products offer and, to prove it, I eat my plant-based masks and creams during presentations. While not all of them are delicious, they are edible! I also seasonally adjust my products. The active ingredients remain the same, but the composition varies just enough for the best possible results.” Elina Fedotova, Founder and Formulator of Elina Organics
