Our Story

It All Started With An Itch

Our journey began when Rafal, scientist and inventor, saw his wife and daughter suffering from their eczema.

Like other eczema sufferers, they had tried everything—every cream, prescription, or remedy they could get their hands on—with no relief.

With a Ph.D. in biomedical sciences and chemistry from Harvard Medical School, Rafal was uniquely qualified to find a solution. After much research, he found the culprit: unbalanced skin pH.

pH is critical for skin health but environmental factors such as hard water, cleansing, UV, pollution, and common skincare and cosmetic products often throw pH off balance. This isn’t too much of a problem when your skin is healthy—but it can be a nightmare for sensitive skin that’s prone to eczema, psoriasis, or other chronic skin conditions. 

The Creation Of Soteri Skin

After months of researching and consulting with the eczema community and leading dermatologists, Soteri Skin's pH/LOCK™ technology was born — the first of its kind that can truly lock in pH and create the right environment for long-term skin renewal. Lo and behold, that formula helped Rafal’s wife and daughter, and many other people with chronic skin conditions find lasting relief. He knew he was onto something big!

And with that, Soteri Skin was born.

Why the name Soteri?

We named Soteri Skin after the ancient Greek goddess of safety and protection, Soteria. A fitting name, given that Soteri Skin treatments protect the skin barrier and help maintain the ideal pH balance. After all, who doesn’t want goddess-like skin?
