On the night of March 20th, 2011, Andy’s  desperation became his  inspiration to create Alitura. He had been struck by a series of large vehicles while crossing a busy street. Andy had a collapsed lung, seven broken ribs and a severe compound fracture of his jaw, which was broken in five places.  As someone who has always made a living based upon my appearance (modeling) and execution of demanding physical tasks (professional baseball), the outcome of this incident had far-reaching implications.  He  recognized that he had the power to choose as we all do when faced with stressful events and was determined to bounce back even stronger. Andy was inspired and told himself that what he put in would be what he’d get out and he knew he had to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary.  By approaching his problem from a nutritional perspective, he rebuilt himself and was back on a runway in a mere 7 weeks. He attacked his injuries both from the inside and outside. The most critical tool for healing his exterior was a hand-crafted blend of unique, specialized ingredients from around the world that Andy formulated himself. Thus, the Alitura Clay Mask was born.

Alitura’s mission is: “To provide customers with an exciting healthy experience from superior ingredients in a fine selection of high quality skin care products.”
