As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, thoughts of my mother’s homemade cranberry sauce leaves a smile on my face. As much as we fancy this jewel-like fruit during the holidays on our dinner plates, cocktails, or dessert dishes, did you know your skin can reap its powerful benefits on a daily basis?
25years ago, the late Arcona Devan, a chemist and true pioneer in holistic skin care developed a line based on her knowledge handed down to her from her Scandinavian heritage utilizing the medicinal power of cranberry. This line has grown internationally to be recognized as ARCONA LOS ANGELES™.
The ARCONA™ Philosophy-
“ The key to ARCONA’s effectiveness is 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.
Active ingredients are processed—and our products are manufactured—according to scientifically tested, chirally correct technology, which allows products to link up most effectively with skin cell receptors for better absorption and more visible results. These active ingredients are cold-processed at very low temperatures, which ensures product activity and effectiveness.
ARCONA™ products contain no petrochemicals, binders or fillers, chemical stabilizers, parabens, sodium lauryl sulphates, perfumes, dyes, or any other caustic, toxic ingredients. Common additives such as these support no more than a brief, cosmetic change in the skin, while clogging the pores and ultimately blocking the restoration of healthy, balanced skin.”
The powerful cranberry is a multi-faceted fruit loaded with phyto-nutrients making it a powerful antioxidant, high in vitamins A, B, and C which aid in cellular function and a promote a strong defense against environmental damage. Vitamins A&C not only brighten the skin, but serve as collagen stimulators. Due to its bacteria blocking properties, cranberry has been used for centuries in traditional Scandinavian medicine, which lead Arcona Devan to base her line on its many healing powers. ARCONA LOSANGELES™ prides itself on being a paraben and preservative free line, using the power of the cranberry to serve as anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Armed to protect against harsh winter conditions, this amazing fruit is loaded with phospholipids which maximizes your skin’s moisture retention properties by enhancing your lipid barrier protection, making the cranberry a winter skin essential!
