Arcona Skin Care Review
The Arcona skin care line was created in Los Angeles in 1989. The concept was to provide holistic, anti-aging products that offer an alternative to plastic surgery to Hollywood stars. The line boasts actresses Diane Lane and Lauren Graham among its users.
Arcona products are made with high concentrations of antioxidants, essential oils, plant lipids and extracts, vitamins and minerals. They are "cold pressed," meaning they are processed at a low temperature--as opposed to being boiled at a high temperature--to maintain their efficacy.
The foundation of Arcona's line is called The Basic Five. The five products, which include two cleansers, a mist, a bar and a "hydrator," are targeted to your skin type. The Basic Five treatment claims to strengthen and firm your complexion by increasing cell turnover for a more youthful appearance.
Arcona products pride themselves on what they don't contain, including parabens, petrochemicals, perfumes, binders or fillers, dyes, chemical stabilizers or any other caustic, toxic ingredients. They are an eco-friendly company and in April 2010 offered a discount to clients who brought in empty containers for recycling.
The Basic Five packages in summer 2010 carried a retail price tag of just under $200 each. A variety of products for all areas of the body can also be purchased individually through beauty websites, with prices starting at $18 for 4 oz. of green tea lotion.
Men's Line and Studio
In addition to the skin care line for women, Arcona has a line for men, created in January 2010. Prices range from $24 for aftershave to $52 for a facial repair treatment. A Santa Monica, Calif., studio offers facials, peels, body treatments and massages using Arcona products.
