Founded by self-taught chef Janus Auermann, Akt Therapy’s foundation is built upon a decade of worldwide travels. Every destination – from the classical cuisine of Paris to the bright and savory aromas of Marrakesh and the Mediterranean, to the exotic flavors of the east coastal islands of Kenya - cultivated Janus’ curiosity for discovering new ingredients and the different ways they could be used.

Living and working in sunny climates, Janus was always in search of quality skincare products that offered protection from the elements. That’s when she first felt the need for comfortable and buildable skincare products with SPF protection. After leaving her job, she moved to Todos Santos in the Baja region of Mexico…a land abundant in herbal inspiration and other extraordinary natural resources.

And when Janus’ father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and dementia, it gave her pause for thought. Among other things, she considered the negative impact of the harmful ingredients in the products she used every day. So she set out to concoct her own line of skincare products that would naturally protect, nourish, and heal skin from the sun and the elements.

She looked to the surrounding desert for inspiration: wild-harvested Baja lavender, jojoba, avocado, and other wonderful plants to provide the base elements for Akt Therapy products. And all ingredients are organic and sourced locally whenever possible.

Akt Therapy is about embracing and celebrating the art of the body. Janus believes that true beauty is an outward expression of your authentic inner self. It is your essence…and radiant skin is an extension of that philosophy. Rituals of self-care encourage us to carve out much-needed personal time from our busy lives, and these moments can help us find peace, acceptance, and even joy.
