Intelligent Skin Sense (ISS), a line of holistic skin care
products, targets healthy skin from the inside out. By embracing
traditional herbal ingredients fueled with scientific smart
ingredient action ISS products have achieved a distinguished
reputation in the industry. By using high performance bio-effective
peptides and multi-functional botanical complexes, ISS products
promote collagen and enhance cell oxygenation and respiration
to replenish thirsty skin. Knowing that collagen needs water
for the cells to stay oxygenated is the crux behind the ISS
H202 series. In addition, one of the keys to the ISS success
is the emphasis on ingredient synergy. This ensures the final
product is the correct combination that looks good, feels
good, smells good and works great all together.
Marlene Katz, President
and Founder of the ISS Intelligent Skin Sense product line,
is a pioneer in the spa industry, having launched one of the
first NYC day spas in 1983, Feline. She then went on to continue
her studies in paramedical esthetics where she became an expert
in lymphatic and electronic facial treatments. She contributed
to product development work in Texas and later on opened Intelligent
Skin Spa in Westport, CT in 2005 before launching her own
product line, ISS H202 series in 2007. Committed to the best
products with the most efficacious results, Marlene still
personally develops and oversees production for all ISS products.
You would think that after
25 years in the spa industry, Marlene Katz would want some
time off for a much needed break. Turns out, she’s just
getting cooking, and how appropriate considering her latest
project to date is a lifestyle book on spa living at home
titled “Age Rebel”.
