Saian® Skincare was founded in 2006 by world-renowned and state-certified educator, Ambassador of the Aesthetics International Association (AIA), Margarita Saian. Saian and her daughter emigrated from Russia in the early 1990s. She had studied esthetics and mesotherapy in the United States as well as in France, and dedicated 20 years of her life to the professional skincare industry. In addition to being a Licensed Esthetician, Ms.Saian was a CMA/Cardiac Technician, National Certified Phlebotomy Technician, Certified ECG, and Certified Nutrition and Wellness Consultant. Ms.Saian has had the honor of training skin care professionals, nurses, and doctors worldwide before she passed away from Glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, at the young age of 59 in 2015. She was constantly researching new ways to raise industry standards and improve the Saian product line. Ms.Saian actively practiced a healthy lifestyle, and was an avid advocate of natural living.
Dasha Saian Marchese is the co-founder and current CEO of Saian® and has over 21 years of experience in the spa industry. In addition to her Business/Marketing degree, she is a licensed Esthetician, certified Nutrition and Wellness Consultant, official Ambassador of the Aesthetics International Association (AIA), and certified Family Herbalist. Dasha is on the Editorial Advisory Board of Dermascope Magazine, she gives lectures and classes internationally and regularly contributes to global trade publications.
In 2013, Margarita was suddenly hospitalized with a grade 4 Glioblastoma, a malignant tumor the size of a baseball in her brain. Needless to say, Dasha put her business on the back burner for two and a half years, and stayed home to take care of her mother and 86-year-old grandmother. They went through 2 brain surgeries, clinical trials, radiation and chemotherapy for 2 years, physical and occupational therapy, special organic diets, affirmations, meditation, kundalini yoga… everything that they could think of to keep amazing Margarita alive. After her passing in 2015, Dasha took over the company, and is now going stronger than ever creating products and treatments passionately, and proudly carrying on Margarita’s legacy.
