Elina Skin Care Kalamazoo

Skin care firm Elina Organics of Kalamazoo is growing, and is Best in Chicago

KALAMAZOO, MI – Elina Fedotova will more than double the size of her skin care clinic in Kalamazoo when she relocates in September from 219 S. Westnedge Ave. to 4205 S. Westnedge Ave.

After moving to Kalamazoo with her husband and young son in 1998, Fedotova opened her first skin care clinic in a small room on Portage Road.

A cosmetic chemist, herbalist and aesthetician originally from Russia, Fedotova designs products to heal, restore and beautify clients’ skin.

She soon relocated Elina Organics and Elina Herbal Skin Care Clinics , to the Austin Sills House on Lovell Street, where she still has a lab. And in 2002, she opened a skin care clinic offering her natural skin care products and services at a Victorian house at 219 S. Westnedge Ave.

“I’ve traveled all over the world and lived in many places and have found Kalamazoo to be a very wonderful, progressive and cultural community,” she said in a written statement. “Fifteen years ago, before all things organic became trendy, the people of Kalamazoo recognized the value of a natural, non-invasive approach to beauty. I’m very grateful, for without that I would not have been able to open a second spa on Oak Street in Chicago, which is now recognized as offering the city’s “best facial.”
