The toxic overload in our human systems is leading to all kinds of health issues which we again with more toxic chemicals. At the same time, the devastation of our ecosystems and plastic pollution poses an unprecedented existential threat..
My name is Susana Gago, I’m a purpose-driven visionary entrepreneur, launching a life-centered ecosystem, determined to use business as a tool for good.
- Our PHILOSOPHY
UNAKTI, the Sanskrit word translating “Unite” says it all: everything is linked. From the organic cultivation of our medicinal and aromatic plants and extraction of oils to packaging and involvement of the consumers in a circular loop system.
- Our PROMISES
At Unakti the promises are genuine, we are a force for good, and we aim to be regenerative from soil to skin while being financially profitable. We want to shine a light on organic cosmetics as a way of life, using the power of nature to heal and balance, while supporting communities of indigenous women farmers and restoring ecosystems.
- Market OPPORTUNITY
The size of the global organic skin & hair care market, is $42.3 billion, with an annual growth rate of 12% (21-27) scaling along with the urgent need to shift towards clean and sustainable consumer products.
- How are we DIFFERENT?
1- Our unique access to high-value medicinal and aromatic plants guarantees the delivery of impeccable quality and high-performance luxury cosmetics.
2- With the science behind our products and the deployment of the latest research and advanced technologies, we build credibility amongst well-informed consumers.
3- We harness a multi-faceted digital strategy that embraces conscious luxury and 100% natural skincare, by showcasing and embracing an unprecedented level of transparency and authenticity into the entire process from cultivation to shelf.
4- We hit 9 SDGs, we are the first industry player to display carbon impact units in our labels, and our target is to become carbon negative by 2025
- Our campaign GOAL
We aim to raise $37.000, as the first stepping stone on our fundraising journey. This capital will allow us to set up our legal structure, to move forward with the research & development, and patenting of our sustainable and biodegradable packaging & “Golden Aura”, ready to launch on March 22, and to conduct feasibility studies for our regenerative farming processes in The Himalayas.
Part of the amount raised will allow us to move forward with the seed funding which we’re in the process of raising from investors in two milestones, to cover the product launch and the first 18-month runway. Right now we’re in discussions with 3 investors. One of them is confirmed for funding in January 2022, and another one is a luxury cosmetics distributor with its own stores.
- Our SUSTAINABLE PACKAGE
We dream of a single-use plastic-free world, therefore we’re developing and patenting a new secondary packaging material, made out of coconut coir and straw with natural rubber from the sap tree, that turns into a birdhouse. This will eliminate the use of the highly polluting plastic bubble wrap, polymers, and other toxic fossil fuels derivates.
The cosmetics package is made out of ceramic and bamboo, with a unique and innovative slide-open lid, and a magnetic system for safe closure. Additionally, we’re creating bamboo refills to cut down on waste. Our packaging is not only sustainable but reusable and biodegradable

Golden Aura $210
With the launching of “Golden Aura”, we trailblaze the future of the next-gen of high-performance 100% natural cosmetics.
Through liposomal target delivery and crossing anatomic barriers, Golden Aura travels deeper through the skin, offering unprecedented protection against blue light radiation besides the delivery of cell-regenerative compounds.
- Blue light is the high-energy visible light (HFU) from phones, computer screens, and LED lights, that emits wavelengths between 390 and 500 nanometers, penetrating farther into the skin than both UVA and UVB light. It also uses a higher level of energy than IR (infrared) light, which can dangerously damage the skin.
- Blue light irradiation negatively affects all layers of the skin inducing oxidative stress, leading to damaged proteins and lipids. Contributes to photo-aging, weakens the epidermal barrier, and delays barrier recovery. Disrupts melanocyte activity, leading to uneven and excess pigmentation. Disrupts sleep cycles, and causes premature aging of the eyes.
Golden Aura, is a 100% natural, plant&red algae-based luxurious cream, and powered with pure and certified 24 kt gold nanoparticles, that offers strong protection against blue light and 5G, preventing premature aging and wrinkles, and at the same time acts as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and cell regenerative.
As we age, collagen and elastin break down, and as a result, the skin loses elasticity and the ability to retain its shape. Gold nanoparticles, energize the skin and slow down aging. Plumps up the skin, regenerate the connective tissue and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other aging signs. Delivers nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells, giving the necessary energy to function properly and protect our skin from harmful external elements.
- Directions: Apply daily on a clean face as a luxurious substitute for your daily moisturizer and protection.
