NULASTIN Founder Leah Garcia

Leah Garcia is an award-winning TV host and former professional athlete. Having spent her life in the great outdoors, exposed to the elements, she found herself searching for a skin care regimen to keep her camera-ready. Leah's criteria was pretty specific: Performance based, results oriented, ethically derived.

Through mutual friends, she met microbiologist Dr. Ensley in 2005. A close friendship and professional collaboration formed between the two. Leah, who suffered facial paralysis (Bell's Palsy) when she was 28 years old understood firsthand the importance of skin elasticity. Doctors warned her face would continue to deteriorate as she aged, and the asymmetry would follow her for life. She began using Dr. Ensley's elastin replenishment skin care formula at the age of 45 and was awestruck by the results. Soon after, Leah was presented with the first eyelash and eyebrow serum containing Dr. Ensley's unique Keracyte® Elastin Complex. The results were so transformational, Leah incorporated NULASTIN to bring this revolutionary FaceCare Collection to other's who crave Real Results.

Our Story

The amazing science behind NULASTIN® is the work of Dr. Burt Ensley, who holds a Ph.D. in Microbiology and served as a former director of Amgen's Specialty Chemicals Group. In the early 1990s, Dr. Ensley set out to develop methods for reproducing human proteins based on recombinant DNA. With a grant from the U.S. Department of Defense and support from the National Science Foundation, Dr. Ensley successfully synthesized the first elastin (Elastatropin®) protein of its kind. He subsequently produced the first human keratin protein using similar techniques. These breakthroughs, the first ever used in cosmetics, are the foundation for our restorative True You FaceCare Collection featuring Keracyte® Elastin Complex.

Dr. Ensley has 30 publications in the peer-reviewed scientific literature and holds 20 issued and 2 pending US patents relating to his field of biology.
