WHO WE ARE, HOW WE STARTED & WHAT WE STAND FOR
ARCONA skin care and The ARCONA Studio were born in Los
Angeles in 1989, established by a remarkable woman named Arcona. A chemist
and pioneer in holistic skin care long before it became trendy, she developed
skin care products and treatments that would provide Hollywood celebrities—and
women and men everywhere—with an alternative to cosmetic surgery and other
harsh treatments to forestall the effects of aging.
Today, the ARCONA brand is known and respected for its
high quality, luxury formulations and their unparalleled ability to make
a positive change to the skin. Chanel Jenae, vice president, product formulator
and esthetician and Kevin Anderson, ARCONA president and CEO, continue to
build on the legacy the brand so rightly deserves. Having worked directly
with Arcona for many years, they feel well equipped to carry on the fundamental
philosophy and vision of the brand well into the future. The ARCONA story
has only just begun.
WHAT MAKES ARCONA UNIQUE—AND EFFECTIVE!
The key to ARCONA’s effectiveness is its active ingredients
and the way they are combined and processed. Cosmeceutical-grade ingredients,
such as enzymes, antioxidants and amino acids, are formulated to work synergistically
to deliver powerful results. These active ingredients are cold-processed
at very low temperatures, in small batches, to keep them active and effective.
Because cold processing is labor and time intensive, most skin care products,
even the expensive ones that may begin with quality ingredients, are heatprocessed,
which ultimately leaves nutrients lifeless and ineffective. Think of
what happens to fresh vegetables when they are overcooked!
THE ARCONA PHILOSOPHY
We believe everyone’s skin can and should look beautiful
at any age regardless of their history. We believe lasting beauty comes
from within and understand that whatever you put on your skin, goes into
your body. Therefore, we use only the finest quality, all natural ingredients
in products that penetrate deep into the cellular layers of the skin to
effect real change, resulting in glowing, healthy skin at any age.
We at ARCONA are dedicated to offering the highest quality,
most effective skin care for both home and professional use. Enzymatic-based
ingredients in ARCONA products include high concentrations of antioxidants,
plant lipids and extracts, sea vegetables, essential oils, vitamins and
minerals. Our ingredients are processed and products manufactured according
to state-of-the-art, chirally correct technology.
ARCONA products do not contain petrochemicals, binders
or fillers, chemical stabilizers, parabens, sodium lauryl sulphates, perfumes,
dyes, or any other caustic, toxic ingredients. There is no scientific evidence
that such additives support more than a brief, cosmetic change in the skin,
and there is proof that these substances clog the pores and block the restoration
of healthy, balanced skin.
THE ARCONA BASIC FIVE PROGRAM - A DAILY REGIMEN THAT
ARCONA’s Basic Five skin care regimen begins with products
chosen to address your particular skin concerns. The purpose of the Basic
Five is to help speed up, strengthen and enhance the skin’s own renewal
process. The products you use in the morning nourish, strengthen and protect
your skin by day. The products you use at night heal, repair and regenerate
your skin as you rest. You’re likely to see an immediate difference in the
way your skin looks and feels, and with faithful continuous use, the Basic
Five will bring your skin into balance for cumulative long-term change.
