Created for Professionals, by Professionals
Ideal for addressing a range of conditions from rosacea and acne to hyperpigmentation, general aging and moisture barrier repair, afa was born from the scientific innovation of board-certified dermatologist and researcher, Dr. Marvin E. Klein.
afaLUXE™ was developed in 1998 by Dr. Marvin E. Klein and his son-in-law, Martin Davidson, with clinical trial from physician partners such as Dr. Joel Schlessinger (a board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon). The amino-based filaggrin antioxidants which are a part of the afaLUXE™ technology are the natural precursor to AHAs (glycolic acids) but have particularly distinct biochemical properties advancing the benefits and potential uses of AHAs and glycolics while reducing—and virtually eliminating—irritation and side-effects.
afa products are cruelty-free and formulated with highly potent, stabilized antioxidants and powerful exfoliants that are effective yet produce little to no irritation, unlike traditional AHAs and glycolic acids.
Most importantly, afa products provide results.
About afaLUXE™ Technology
afaLUXE™ is a combination of filaggrin-based amino acids that creates the powerful skin benefits of a very low pH but minus the irritation. When synergized with proven brighteners and natural antioxidants, the results are effective exfoliation without irritation, improved moisture balance, genuine skin renewal and barrier restoration safe for nearly all skin types.
Additionally, unlike many ingredients found in active skin care, the acidification process of amino acids ensures the afaLUXE™ molecules are small enough to pass through the keratin barrier and so can effect clinically significant changes in skin health, including:
• Clearing of acne, minimized breakouts and the associated post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
• Reducing, redness, irritation and symptoms of rosacea
• Increasing collagen production
• Refining fine lines and wrinkles • Brightening existing unwanted pigmen
tation, signs of sun damage and aging
• Soothing of overall skin texture and improving the appearance of pores
• Correcting and maintaining proper moisture balance
