Dr Alek’s mission is to empower your skin and to restore it to its fullest health by improving and reversing specific skin concerns through the use of sk.in products. Dr Alek Nikolic formulated sk.in products with five goals in mind: to use the best and highest concentration active ingredients available, to combine ingredients in every serum that also repair and maintain the skin barrier, to use ingredients that minimise skin reactions, to make sk.in products readily accessible and to ensure that all sk.in products can be easily added to any basic skincare regime.
the ultimate skin
from the dr. you trust
skincare ingredients = sk.in
The name originated from Dr Alek’s core vision for sk.in.
“My focus is not only the skincare ingredients used but also how the combination of these ingredients in the various formulations help to target and correct the health and hydration of the skin.”
how sk.in was started
sk.in was born many years before the company Skin Ingredients (Pty) Ltd was founded in 2017 when renowned aesthetic medical practitioner Dr Alek Nikolic realised that there was a need for doctor prescribed cosmeceuticals to be more freely available. The stumbling blocks most companies faced was that active ingredients could cause unwanted skin reactions limiting them to be only available at cosmetic doctor’s practices and dermatologists. However, Dr Alek knew that active prescription strength ingredients do exist that limit the possibility of skin reactions. This motivated Dr Alek to start sk.in, using these premium ingredients to maximise skincare results while simultaneously limiting skin reactions. Research and development for sk.in began in 2015 when Dr Alek started working closely with compounding pharmacists, international ingredient suppliers and packaging experts to ensure that the quality of the ingredients not only matched sk.in’s mission but also Dr Alek’s exacting standards. The 3-year journey culminated in a premium skincare brand that uses no parabens in any of the products, are all vegan, gluten, soy and nut free, and most importantly, are never tested on animals (cruelty-free).
