To say Sonya Dakar is passionate about skin is an understatement. Ever since her professional launch 30 years ago, her mission hasn't wavered: to give everyone the chance to achieve great skin. What started out as Sonya performing facials in the guest house of the family home (while husband Israel mixed skincare treatments in the kitchen), has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon. Her facials are legendary.
Sonya Dakar believes that taking care of the skin is just like taking care of the body. While spending hours in the gym to get fit may not be anyone's idea of bliss, the pay-offs for how you look and feel are tremendous. It's the same with skin care: with the correct tools, effective products and a diligent attitude, the results are sure to follow. After being an underground phenomenon for many years, Sonya Dakar launched the Sonya Dakar Skin Clinic in 1984. Since that time she has created such sought-after treatments as The Diamond Peel, the Custom Green Tea Peel and Facial Fitness. Over the years, a comprehensive product line was developed so that everyone can benefit from Sonya Dakar's wisdom. Today, the company manufactures over 120 plant-based products, which retail between $20 and $150. These are sold nationwide as well as internationally through the company's website, select spas and boutiques.
