Please share with us more about Dr. Sarac and his background expertise. Dr. Sarac was educated in Europe and did his postdoctoral fellowship in Louisiana, the U.S.A. When he became, disabled and was no longer allowed to teach we moved. It has been a long road back to productivity. As you can see on our website because of Dr. Sarac’s illness we support and advocate for the blind and deaf by the sales of perfume bottles in the form of 50% of the sales in donations.
Where is Dr. Isidor Apothecary located?
We are located in the mountains of the north Georgia in the little town of Ellijay. Surrounded by the nature and we live in a national forest and have a variety of wildlife that visits our property. We simply like woodland style of living and life and we are reconnected with the nature. It is this inspiration that keeps us looking to the nature to better lives of our clients as well as our lives. We are able to grow organically most of our ingredients or to harvest in the deep wilderness.
What is produced at the Apothecary?
We produce a variety of products, for ages from newborns to seniors. We have an excellent variety of 100% natural facial, hand/body skincare and haircare products, as well as 100% natural perfumes and scented perfume oils. In our design of the natural skin care products and natural perfumes we use traditional and ancient techniques and methods, however, still Dr. Sarac is taking seriously into consideration the new research results of cosmetic sciences, toxicology, ethnobotany, pharmacognosy and cosmetovigilance. Additionally, we are taking seriously into consideration skin care needs of the people of the 21st century. https://drisidorapothecary.com/
How was Dr. Isidor Academy started?
Everyone wants to know how we produce such high-quality products, so after some debate we decided to open an academy for training in natural perfumery and natural skincare products proper and high quality of design, formulation and compounding. We decided to do it different than most of the classes we have attended over the years or see online. As you know Dr. Sarac was a university professor; in his career, he developed and delivered over 20+ courses at different level of education from baccalaureate degree to the postdoctoral level in-class and distance - online. All our courses are at the college level and are on a timeline and teacher guided with intensive mentorship. However, we are offering so-called Do-It-Yourself courses as well, specifically designed for people who want to make natural skin care products in their household and kitchen. Additionally, people can find that we are offering some courses specifically designed for the healthcare professional such as dermatologists, primary care physicians and nurses to educate them regarding 100% natural skin care products, how to evaluate the natural sin care products and combine them with their theraputics and to get continuing education units (CEU). http://drisidoracademy.com/
What is the academy mission?
We devote our energy and our competencies solely to one task: teaching and instructing students in design, formulation and production of 100% natural skin care products and natural perfumes based on traditional and ancient apothecary formulas and research results of modern cosmetic science and principles of herbal formulation in cosmetics and skin care products. We believe that everyone should age gracefully and wisely with 100% natural skin care products as our ancestors without using harmful chemicals.
Dr. Isidor Academy has set itself the mission of offering all students and participants in our academy the modern education based on the international educational standards and high professional instructions in the best 100% natural skin care products and perfumes with quality, efficacy, and safety.
We strive to preserve and teach students forgotten but healthy and effective apothecary formulas in skin care, cosmetics, perfumes and cosmeceuticals based on 100% natural ingredients of what Mother Nature can offer to humans.
The traditional and ancient apothecary and perfumery art and science meet the modern cosmetic science and principles of herbal formulary at the Dr. Isidor Academy.
Which are some of the applications and practice of the courses at the Academy upon completion?
Upon completion, our students are well versed and skilled in the art and science of the proper natural skin care products formulation and natural perfumery without producing possible harmful effects for their clients. They are able to produce products the proper way for themselves, friends and family and even open their own business. If they desire they could produce their own product line or perhaps work for any one of numerous companies that produce products that they were trained in. The mentorship is available even after course, if a student requires. Also, some students are interested in producing a specific line of the products, we offer that kind of so-called specifically designed and tailored courses. As you are aware 100% all natural/organic products are on the rise. It has taken a long time for the public to become knowledgeable about organic food. Everyone needs to go a step further and think about what we put on our bodies as well as what we put into our bodies. The both affect our life.
