The Original Skin Care Store – Celebrating 16 Years Online

While caring for his patients in his plastic surgery practice, Dr. Peter Pacik realized that the best skin care products aren't the ones you find in drug stores or on expensive department store counters.

So in 1997 Dr. Pacik founded Skincare-md.com with the mission of offering exceptional, advanced skin care products and to help shoppers make the right skin care choices through education without the hype.

In January, 2012 Skincare-md.com was acquired by Svelte Brands, the Brooklyn based fashion and beauty connoisseurs. The store, now rebranded as Apothecarie New York, is thriving under its new owners, who are determined to carry on the store's original mission: to educate customers about the best skin care treatments and solutions for their own unique needs.
