in 2008, Dr. Naidu founded anokha in response to patient demand for clinical-grade products without frequently harsh medical ingredients. years of independent research and study of cosmetic chemistry resulted in a luxury skincare line designed to celebrate both women and men, allowing them to feel to feel beautiful, every day. while many physicians carry their own skincare brands, Dr. Naidu is one of the very few who formulates her own products herself.
