About Us

PATRICIA ALLISON - SINCE 1961

 

Patricia Allison Beauty products are formulated from the highest quality and purest ingredients available, and are manufactured using the most advanced techniques of the cosmetic industry. These products are comparable in quality and efficacies to those found in the most exclusive American and European salons but are offered to you at a fraction of the salon prices because of low overhead and modest advertising and packaging. Our beauty products are formulated (most of them exclusively for us) at cosmetic labs in the United States, so you can feel good about purchasing products from a strictly Made in America company.

 

Patricia Allison started the company bearing her name over 50 years ago. She owned and operated a salon and spa in the Los Angeles area and worked with a cosmetic chemist to create products to use in her business. She had sensitive skin, and so did many of her customers. She was looking for gentle hair care, lotion, oil for skin, etc, that she could use on her customers that had perfume allergies and needed hypoallergenic products. She knew from experience what the right products to achieve the desired results were. She was certainly a lady ahead of her time (and she lived to be 96 years of age!)

 

The Patricia Allison product line has evolved over a period of 50 years, and is being continuously tested on hypersensitive as well as normal human skin and scalps. We take pride in the fact that we were one of the first cruelty free cosmetic companies. We have never tested our products on animals, and certainly never will!

 

Patricia Allison skin and hair care formulas are dye free, most are paraben free, most are available without added fragrance, and most contain no animal ingredients, i.e., most are vegan. Where used, animal ingredients are limited to lanolin (derived from wool), honey and bees wax. Our skin and hair care products list all of the ingredients used on our product detail page so if you know of an ingredient you are sensitive to you will know if this product contains it. Our products are wonderful for people with chemical sensitivities, perfume allergies, and environmental allergies (but of course always test a new product with care before liberal application).
