As a self-taught chef with clients in private aviation, Akt Therapy founder Janus Auermann’s work allowed her to see and experience many different parts of the world.

Living and working in sunny climates, she felt the need for comfortable and buildable everyday skincare products with SPF protection.

After leaving her job, Janus moved to Baja, Mexico.

The region’s desert is abundant in herbal inspiration and other extraordinary natural resources.

There, she set out to concoct her own line of clean, non-toxic skincare products that would naturally protect, nourish and heal skin from the sun and the elements.
