features Elina Organics

Elina Organics, headquartered in Kalamazoo, Michigan, plucks core ingredients from organic suppliers that span the globe: Sea buckthorn oil is wild-crafted from a virtually untouched ecological environment in Siberia; lavender hails from French farms; roses, and rose oils are sourced from Bulgaria; and calendula is gathered Stateside.  Even soybean phospholipids are certified organic to ensure zero genetic modification.  “I’m very particular about ingredients, and I prefer wild-crafted botanicals,” says owner Elina Fedotova (pictured below). “But if an ingredient is rare or protected, I obtain it through organics farms.”

Fedotova admits to the challenges of creating a truly organic product line.  Natural ingredients aren’t always consistent, resulting in slightly different aromas or textures from one season to the next, and ingredient prices can fluctuate according to weather conditions.  However, she focuses on training her spa practitioner partners to educate customers on variations in product, and works with established sources to minimize availability issues.  “Sixteen years ago when I started, people asked why I chose to go the organic route – it can lead to consistency issues, it’s hard to market or preserve the products, and it’s expensive,” notes Fedotova.  “But now, more and more people are seeking out organic lines.”

“Another company harnessing the positive attributes of jewels is Elina Organics, whose Gemstone Collection features diamond, emerald, ruby, and sapphire infusions blended with herbs, mushrooms, and other organic ingredients.

5 Questions with Elina Fedotova

— interview with Elina Fedotova
“1. From where do you draw inspiration when developing new products? Many ideas come from meditation. For example,one of my newest products, Ambra-Lift, contains Baltic Amber, which has been used for centuries as an anti-aging ‘Vessel of Eternal Youth.’ I first learned about its healing powers through holistic Russian traditions and practices. The idea came to me again during my daily meditation practice and I decided to do more research on it. I never follow trends in the industry and don’t look…”

“Ok, let’s start with what’s really important – How on earth do you manage to look so good during our miserable Chicago winters? I use Elina Organics for my natural skin care needs. I get a facial with her once every five to six weeks and also get an air compressor treatment! It looks like a huge space suit that squeezes your lymph nodes in a massaging/torturing practice. Either way, wrapped in some of her natural balms, 30 minutes in that suit 30 minutes in that suit I am a new person.” Ginger Zee: New ‘GMA’ Meteorologist
