Elina Organics' owner, Elina Fedotova, has created the modern definition for a holistic, clinical skin care spa. The industry vet with over 25 years of experience in esthetics and holistic skin care formulation, has laid the foundation for natural skin care practitioners everywhere. Fedotova grew up in Russia and moved to the states in 1991. She brought with her an holistic approach that was untapped by many and a mission to create high-performance products and treatments using food-grade ingredients. After opening her first Elina Organics location in Michigan in 1998, she quickly launched her in-house skin care brand and founded the Association of Holistic Skin Care Practitioners to spread the message of clean spas/skin care. Now with another location in Illinois, Fedotova runs her successful spas with help from her staff that have completed training that is above the “average” esthetic education. The work together to provide their clients with a one-of-a-kind experience that incorporates healing, energy reading, “therapy” and holistic services and products. Fedotova sat down with Skin Inc. to discuss how to truly be a organic spa, the ins and outs of natural product formulation, and how to create an environment that draws in clients interseted in holistic services.
