Patented AFA formulas provide potent antioxidant benefits and effective exfoliation gentle enough for all skin types
Sold in over 30 countries, Amino-based Filaggrin Antioxidants (or AFAs) are available exclusively through Dermatologists, Plastic Surgeons and Cosmetic Physicians. AFAs are formulated with a patented blend of natural amino fruit antioxidants to work synergistically with filaggrin – a protein of the epidermis which metabolizes into amino acids and act as the primary agent for retaining moisture in the skin. Through this high-effective formula, AFA products repair and refine skin with minimal irritation, making them an ideal solution for patients with all skin types who are experiencing acne, signs of aging or sun damage.
None of the skin care products in the AFA line are tested on animals.
What are AFAs?
AFAs: Amino-based Filaggrin Antioxidants
The AFAs skin care line is based on the amino fruit antioxidants generally occurring as part of the natural moisture factors (NMF) of human skin, which play a vital role in keeping skin appearing healthy and youthful.
AFA products are formulated with highly-potent, stabilized antioxidants and powerful exfoliants which, belying their efficacy, produce little to no irritation unlike AHAs, glycolic acids, and other alpha hydroxy acids. AFAs are extremely effective in diminishing the signs of aging, sun damage and hyperpigmentation.
Extraordinary AFA Results:
- Improved skin texture
- Diminished hyperpigmentation and signs of sun damage
- Refinement in appearance of enlarged pores
- Minimization of acne breakouts and rosacea

Unique Benefits of AFAs:

- Increased moisture retention
- Highly-potent, stabilized antioxidants
- Clinically-significant results with little to no irritation
Dr. Marvin E. Klein
Dr. Marvin E. Klein, a board certified dermatologist, created and developed AFAs. An avid researcher with a passion for biochemistry, Dr. Klein searched for a formula that provided significant anti-aging benefits without the dryness and irritation commonly associated with other AHA products. From that research, he discovered a way to further acidify the same amino acids that are present in the epidermis of the human skin that are recognized as a part of the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) of the skin. From that discovery, he created the cosmeceutical compounds that became AFAs (Amino acid Filaggrin-based Antioxidants).

A board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Joel Schlessinger was a long-time friend to Dr. Marven E. Klein and has been involved with the AFA line since the early days of the product formulations. Dr. Schlessinger has known the principals of the company since 1993 and through his relationship with Dr. Klein, has been involved in the scientific exploration of the AFA brand. For the last 25 years Dr. Schlessinger has been an advocate for AFAs through international lectures, published works and to the patients in his very own practice located in Omaha, NE.
