Meet Aniko Peterson of pH Balance Skincare

Today we’d like to introduce you to Aniko Peterson.

Hi Aniko, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I am the founder and CEO of pH BALANCE SKINCARE. Growing up in Eastern Europe, I learned the enduring power of family, giving, and hard work. As my parents worked long hours to provide for our family, my grandmother became my caregiver and mentor. My grandmother courageously survived internment in a Soviet work camp during World War II, but despite this difficult and trying time, she believed you can survive as long as you have hope. She believed in hope for a better life and the belief that you can realize your dreams no matter how difficult the situation.

Although my Grandmother passed away from cancer when I was 15 years old, her wisdom, positive attitude, and abundant compassion motivated me to dedicate my life to helping people.

I received my nursing degree from Bajza Jozsef Gimna’zium College of Health and shortly after I studied Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the Uzsoki Hospital in Budapest. It was there I became inspired by the scientists and doctors who were researching cancer treatments and I decided to pursue a career in medical massage and aesthetics. After I came to America, I founded the Art of Massage Studio where I concentrated on therapy treatments to achieve maximum wellness. Over the years, I had the privilege of helping thousands of people live healthier lives.

During this time, one of my closest friends was diagnosed with cancer. Her treatments left her skin burned and irritated and I knew I had to help. I was reminded of my grandmother’s lesson: “Giving is the key to happiness.” I was determined to help my friend during this difficult time and I knew I could alleviate at least one aspect of her difficult process if I united my medical and therapeutic expertise. After much research, I determined that most traditional skincare failed to address the concerns of those undergoing cancer treatments, and some could even hinder healing due to chemicals, irritants, and harsh formulations.

My education in the sciences, experience, inspiration, and persistence led me to develop pH BALANCE SKINCARE products that are free of irritants and chemicals, with naturally nourishing ingredients to promote optimal healing and relief. pH BALANCE SKINCARE products are formulated to hydrate and repair the skin, not only for cancer patients but for individuals experiencing a variety of skin irritations.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I see challenges as opportunities and accept them. I believe that when you are doing the right thing and work diligently to achieve it that helping people achieve healthy live through their skin is the ultimate reward. The main challenge today is to let more people know about the best ways to take care of their bodies through healthy choices, including their skincare products.

The marketplace is filled with brands that use toxic ingredients or are overpriced making them unhealthy and inaccessible, leading everyday people to choose unhealthy solutions.

We strive to inform the public through social media and have just launched in a brick and mortar store, Flying Solo in New York, New York, to educate consumers about the importance of healthy products.

We’ve been impressed with pH Balance Skincare, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
pH Balance Skincare is a skin-inspired brand. Our scientifically-proven products fuse the power of natural and organic ingredients in revolutionary pH balanced formulas designed to complement the skin.

Our carefully crafted skincare products unite the best nature+science to help our customers look and feel radiant and designed to complement the simplistic beauty of your everyday life. Our natural ingredients will help you feel balanced and well in your everyday lives.

Most traditional skincare products often contain ingredients including exfoliants, plumping or brightening agents, artificial dyes and fragrances, sulfates and parabens can exacerbate sensitive skin issues.

In an effort to fill this void, pH BALANCE SKINCARE was conscientiously created free of harmful chemicals and irritants and formulated with a pH that complements the skin and with natural ingredients that soothe, hydrate and repair skin that is in perfect pH BALANCE.

Three key things set us apart – having a medical background, being an esthetician and being a cancer survivor. pH Balance Skincare essentially began 30+ years ago when our CEO and founder, Aniko Peterson embarked on her rewarding Medical, Wellness, and Skincare career paths.

When Aniko combined her personal health and quality of life challenges with her knowledge of medicine, chemistry, and skin function, it became clear to her that there was an unfulfilled need for natural, healthy products formulated specifically to work in balanced harmony with our skin function. Our products have a comprehensive approach incorporating the best of the medical and spa worlds.

We’re always looking for the lessons that can be learned in any situation, including tragic ones like the Covid-19 crisis. Are there any lessons you’ve learned that you can share?
Absolutely! I see challenges as opportunities and accept them, with Covid-19 making it even more clear how important it is to keep your immune system strong and practice good health habits.

As a business owner, Covid-19 motivated me to inform consumers even more and help them truly understand that their skin is the largest organ and how important it is to keep it healthy to all0w it to do one of its main functions, which is to protect us.

pH stands for potential of hydrogen and is integral to the health of the skin. That’s why we were the first to pioneer products that focus on pH balanced clean beauty products that promote a healthy skin barrier.

This devastating virus made more people receptive to this principle and recognize how vital skin health is for total body well-being.

feel stronger need to be more known to how to take back your skin health and keep it stronger than ever….fight off
