Three key competitive advantages of Alina Skin Care

We are a science-driven company that believes damage and premature aging of skin are primarily caused by three key issues: dehydration, inflammation, and collagen and elastin breakdown. All of our products are specially formulated to directly bring relief and support to these three key areas of skin damage. We have two patented ingredients unique to our products and our Alina Proprietary Antioxidant Blend that give us a scientific and clinically proven advantage over other anti-aging skincare brands.


Inflacin® is a patented, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory that has been clinically proven to calm irritated skin. Keeping your skin calm and less irritated on a daily basis is critical to maintaining healthy looking, vibrant skin. Alina Skin Care truly delivers innovation and superior skin care products through the use of proprietary ingredients like Inflacin®.


We utilize a proprietary patented and clinically proven technology called Qsomes®. Qsomes® is an organic fatty acid based technology that improves the penetration of ingredients into the skin. Many skincare ingredients have a large molecular weight that prevents them from penetrating deep into the skin compromising effectiveness. Qsomes® enable us to deliver a higher percentage of active ingredients deeper into the skin than other brands, thus creating a more effective product. It’s simple, the more active ingredients you can get to penetrate deep into the skin the greater results you will see.

Alina Proprietary Antioxidant Blend

All Alina Skin Care products contain our proprietary Alina Antioxidant Blend of green and white tea extracts in addition to Vitamin E and Aloe to help protect your skin against oxidative stress and free radicals.

Would life have been different for Johnnie if she’d been named after a woman rather than her dead uncle? Or if her mama hadn’t been quite so beautiful or flighty? The grandparents who raised her were loving, but they didn’t understand the turmoil roiling within her. And they had so many, many secrets.

Why did her mama leave? Would she ever return? How did her Uncle Johnny really die? Who was her father? Now Johnnie Kitchen is a 43-year-old woman with three beautiful children, two of them grown. She has a handsome, hardworking husband who adores her, and they live in the historic North Texas town of Portion in a charming bungalow. But she never finished college and her only creative outlet is a journal of letters addressed to both the living and the dead. Although she has conquered the bulimia that almost killed her, Johnnie can never let down her guard, lest the old demons return. Or perhaps they never went away to begin with. For Johnnie has secrets of her own, and her worst fear is that the life she’s always wanted–the one where she gets to pursue her own dreams–will never begin.

Not until her ghosts reveal themselves.
