Anna Lotan Bio-Cosmetic Laboratories have over four decades of experience in creating formulations that target various skin conditions. These products reflect the personal approach and treatment philosophy developed by the company founder Ms. Anna Lotan in her 50 years as an active esthetician and teacher. All products are created to work in harmony with the skin’s metabolism, with sensitivity to the needs of individual skin types and respect for the skin’s principal function as the body’s protective outer barrier.
Throughout the years, the Anna Lotan goal has been to use pure and active natural products, minimizing the need for chemical preservatives and emulsifiers to stabilize formulations. As a result, Anna Lotan Bio-Cosmetic Laboratories have created a wide range of products which are especially friendly to the skin, a fact proven recently in clinical tests. Of thirty products tested, twenty nine were found to be hypoallergenic and suitable even for the most sensitive skin. It is a reality of professional skin care that, in order to achieve spectacular change or even any significant improvement, tolerance may sometimes need to be sacrificed when triggering the skin’s natural repair mechanism.
Today, the Anna Lotan R&D is directed towards the development of a new generation of products using a revolutionary delivery system based on marine nano technology. The new Nano->InÒ series will be added to the product list during 2009.
Tender Calming Care
Eliminate T-zone Redness, Naturally…
The product line is formulated to care for sensitive oily skin suffering from seborrhea, Seborrhea is a condition characterized by enlarged sebaceous glands and excess oily secretions that cover the skin with waxy scales, accumulating over the T-zone (nasal folds, chin and forehead) and very often on the scalp. This buildup of greasy dead cells creates an ideal „hideaway“ for resident microbial flora to flourish. Skin suffering from seborrhea is particularly sensitive to internal and external conditions that may aggravate it.
Enriched with a variety of plant extracts such as Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Myrtle, Honeysuckle, Forsythia, Allantoin, Chamomile and Bisabolol, Barbados offers a line of delicate, extra calming and caring products. Moisturizing, non-occlusive, truly soothing formulations maintain hygienic conditions, provide immediate relief and have a remarkable ability to reduce the diskomfort, redness and itchiness associated with seborrhea.
The Magic of Siberian Seabuckthorn
The magical qualities of Seabuckthorn have been known for centuries throughout Europe and Asia, serving as both a skin care remedy and a nutritional supplement with excellent restorative qualities.
Seabuckthorn has been traditionally utilized to promote healing of skin injuries and to improve the conditions of mucous membranes of the gastro-intestinal tract. Its botanical name: Hippophae – “shiny horse” – may tell us how the ancient Greeks used it in a special diet for race horses.
The berries of this shrub are rich in vitamins and nutrients and are therefore associated with regeneration. They contain more than 100 different nutrients, bioactive substances including phytosterols, water soluble vitamins (such as B1, B2, C, P, Folic acid and K) and oil soluble vitamins such as A and E, EFA (80-95% essential fatty acids), free amino acids, alpha and beta carotenes, Lycopene, and Zeaxanthin which all contribute to the rich golden orange color of the berries and the oil itself. The oil helps to combat skin dryness, wrinkles and signs of premature aging.
Mature, Demanding Skin
The wealth of functional nutrients naturally present in grain sprouts such as Wheatgrass and Buckwheat motivated the formulation of greens!
Concentrated sprout extracts add vital nutrients and trace elements to give the skin a rejuvenated appearance, they also provide fresh vitality to the novel, active formulations of greens.
greens is so much more than just another cosmetic alternative for the trendy fashion of anti-wrinkle injections.
The products offer effective, long term, safe and luxurious care for oily, normal and dry skin. The best quality care ingredients in cosmetology have been inspired by the biological compositions naturally present in the human skin: Hibiscus Esculentus, Borago Officinalis, Simmondsia Chinensis, NMF, Hippophae Rhamnoides, Lonicera Caprifolium. These compositions, often depleted by age, usually enjoy an excellent skin tolerance and are easily absorbed by the skin. Many of the greens ingredients have been selected according to this principle in order to provide products particularly kind to the skin.
greens was especially designed for the mature skin that would benefit from a skin care program with an immediate positive effect on appearance.
Oily and Problem Skin
A Clear products for oily & problematic skin (acne) were specially designed to help improve the skin’s condition by reducing excessive oiliness and clogging of pores that sometimes develop into disturbing lesions; help to lighten comedons (black heads); improve the hygienic conditions of the skin and promote healthy skin renewal without over drying.
A Clear formulations make optimal use of the “healing” and anti-oxidant potential of herbs as a natural alternative to medications or chemicals.
Minerals from the Dead Sea purify the skin and enhance the skin’s metabolism by osmosis, accelerating waste disposal and the overall cell turnover. Naturally oriented, they have a calming effect on the skin, promoting its vital and youthful appearance.
NEW AGE CONTROL
The New Age Control line is designed as a modular and gradual treatment, suitable with slight changes, for all types of skin in need of refreshing and renewal. The gradual renewal process will expose a more moisturized skin with less sun damage. This means a lighter complexion, fewer pigmentation spots and less marked wrinkles.
The active products of New Age Control are based on the exfoliation and renewal capacity of fruit acids (AHA) that help to dissolve the intracellular “glue” that holds the dead skin cells together on the skin’s surface. They are composed of excellent moisturizers (such as Hyaluronic Acid), enriched with various soothing plant extracts: Aloe Vera, Green Tea, Echinacea and Chamomile to prevent any irritation, and vitamins A, E, C, and their derivatives that support the renewal process and reduce oxidation damage.
New Age Control has also been found to work surprisingly well with the couperose skin condition, fortifying the overlaying skin and making the capillaries less visible.
The use of this type of product on a daily basis gradually enhances the exfoliation of the epidermis and stimulates the production of fresh skin cells to compensate for missing ones. Daily use of New Age Control products should bring excellent results within just a few weeks.
* It is important to protect the skin with effective UV protection (SPF 15 or higher) during use of any acid based creams.
Fair Skin has always been associated with beauty.
C White products are rich in Vitamin C for all its most advanced active and durable derivatives (including Ester C, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate) that support the lightening process, neutralize free radicals, stimulate regeneration and grant a youthful and vital appearance.
The product line also incorporates active herbal lightening components known to inhibit melanin formation, within protective emollient formulations that support skin functioning. A pleasure to use all year long,
C White products deliver excellent results for both young and mature skin.
Dry Skin Care
Renova offers optimal “basic” care for dry dehydrated skin to reduce premature aging. Renova products were especially designed to support the skin’s barrier function and reduce evaporation by renewing and improving the hydrolipid layer. Their efficient long-lasting protective quality improves the skin’s ability to cope with damaging environmental factors and prevent premature aging.
Deep moisturizing creams enrich the skin with premium oils including Wheat Germ, Sesame, Squalane from Olive oil and phytosterols.
Natural polysaccharides act as water binding components mimicking those that are naturally present in the skin itself such as Aloe Vera, hyaluronic acid and amino acids. Vitamins such as A and E and Seabuckthorn oil act as free radical scavengers to preserve the quality of the enriching oils in the formulations.
Anna Lotan Classic offers you “basic” normal skin care.
In reality, normal skin is invariably skin in transition, no longer subject to the skin problems of adolescence and not, as yet, facing the problems of mature skin.
Pleasant and easy to use, these products offer tender loving care for this skin.
Fragile skin types with a visible web of capillaries are particularly sensitive and reactive to environmental hazards and to heat, alcohol and smoking. There is a limited number of care options for this skin type. Vaso-dilatants should be totally avoided, as should the use of any occlusive or too active preparations.
The primary goal of an effective care program for this condition should be based on strengthening the walls of the capillaries, with soothing, cooling products.
Essentially, hypo-tonic gels are the optimal choice and are the basis of the Anna Lotan Alodem product line.
Additional benefit can also be gained from a mild AHA skin renewal treatment, such as that found in New Age Control, that thickens the epidermis gradually making the capillaries less visible.
Eye Contour Care
The liveliest part of the face is the eye contour area. Being particularly gentle and vulnerable, it requires special care that is not necessarily related to a specific skin type. Anna Lotan has developed a variety of innovative products for the eye area.
Note: Other Anna Lotan creams from various lines also provide excellent care for dry and mature eye contour areas: Renova Balm, Golden Night Cream, Solid Gold and products from the greens line.
Anna Lotan Body Care products were designed specifically to strengthen the function of the skin as the protective outer organ of the body while, at the same time, caring for the skin leaving it softer, smoother, and more glowing.
These products keep the skin hygienically clean and protect it from sun damage and oxidation while improving the skin’s inner nourishment by the use of mineral and essential ingredients. The products have the capacity to exfoliate based on Alpha Hydroxy Acids or marine algae that remove dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, smoothing and speeding up the skin’s natural renewal process.
In addition, there is a range of specialized products such as maximal softening products for problem areas such as the soles of the feet, antiperspirant, after waxing soothing products, and a “preventive” range of items that help fight unwanted microorganisms and fungi.
Continued use of these body care products will enable the user to maintain a healthier skin that reveals its natural beauty.
