Your skin has the amazing ability to repair and regenerate itself, especially when you treat it with the right balance of stimulation and nourishment. This simple truth is the foundation of the Sanitas Skin Care line.

I have been using products from this Boulder, Colorado based company for years and am excited to share them with my clients.  All Sanitas products are cruelty free and contain no parabens, phthalates, dyes, harsh preservatives or gluten.



The foundation for healthy skin starts here.
Start with daily essentials: Cleanser - Serum - Moisturizer

Looking to change up your skin care routine? This is the place to start. This collection features customized, daily essentials that are specially formulated for various skin types. A simple daily regimen of cleanser, serum, and moisturizer will help strengthen and prepare your skin to progress to the Activate and Optimize categories for rapid results.  Formulas available for all skin types.
Dr. Nielsen's favorites: The Lemon Cream Cleanser is addictive - one smell and you will be hooked! I alternate between the Vita Rich Serum (very hydrating and packed with antioxidants) and the Weightless Serum (more of a matte finish) depending on the time of year.

Looking to take your skin care routine up a notch?
Integrate one or more of the Active skin care products into your routine. 

Designed to activate skin rejuvenation levels and elevate results, this collection of products integrates powerful technologies for progressing the health of the skin. Activate products include alpha-hydroxy acids, retinols, high-potency topical Vitamin C and more. Product concentrations may increase over time to prevent your progress from plateauing.
Dr. Nielsen's favorites: I'm obsessed with the Vitamin C Lactic cleanser (used 2-3 days per week).  I use the Vita C Serum at night - this high-potency Vitamin C serum is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids.  

Have a specific need?
Try these targeted, therapeutic products.

Whether you are looking to reduce blemishes, brighten, hydrate, or reverse the effects of aging, this collection of targeted, therapeutic products is designed to help rehabilitate challenged skin. When combined with the proper Progenerate and Activate programs, the correct selection of Optimize products will advance skin to its most healthy, optimal state.
Dr. Nielsen's favorites: I LOVE the Brightening Peel Pads - these pads can be used 2-3 times per week for an instant glow. The Hyaluronic Concentrate is combined with your usual moisturizer to boost hydration and reduce the appearance of fine lines - instant results!
