RealLisse® Vegan Hair Smoothing System Marks One Year Anniversary; All Zerran Reform® and RealLisse® Products Pass Dermatological Testing

Stylists and consumers concerned about the safety of ingredients found in beauty products can breathe easy with Zerran International, an innovation leader for healthy hair care. True to our “stylist needs come first” approach, Zerran is proud to announce all products in RealLisse®, the world's first vegan hair smoothing system, and Reform® natural hair straightening system, have undergone and passed dermatological testing with zero adverse results. Both specialty product lines are 100 percent vegan and botanically-based.

RealLisse®, the world's first 100 percent Vegan Hair Smoothing System, launched one year ago at the ISSE Long Beach show. This revolutionary technology utilizes vegan proteins in a heat-activated formulation that neither emits nor contains any keratin, formaldehyde, or other harsh chemicals. RealLisse® is now distributed in the United States, Canada, the European Union, and Middle East with more alliances soon to be announced.

Ongoing platform demonstrations of RealLisse, featuring Zerran educators and live hair models, will be presented at the International Salon and Spa Expo (ISSE), Jan. 28 - 30, 2012, at the Long Beach Convention Center, 300 E. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90802. Zerran is located in Booth #544.

“The message of well being and beauty is a universal theme across all cultures, but people today are demanding to know more about the ingredients they put in and on their bodies,” says Cindy Van Steelandt, marketing director for Zerran and noted wound care authority. “Safety and education have always been cornerstones of our philosophy. Because innovation is our focus, education is a real necessity, especially with new technology. What is certain is that Zerran products are manufactured to the highest standards, safe for stylists to use, and effectively meet the client's expectations.”

Zerran president Steve Sauté adds that demand for formaldehyde-free and keratin-free alternatives is skyrocketing as a result of continued governmental and industry focus on the safety of Brazilian-style keratin hair smoothing treatments. “The Zerran brand has been around for 25 years; we have always been guided by the desire to advance health and beauty via natural solutions.”

Because RealLisse® is a new technology, the ISSE education track accepted Zerran's application to offer an intensive 90-minute free RealLisse® “look and learn” technique seminar entitled "New Hair Smoothing Technology." Led by Zerran educator Kim Williams utilizing a live hair model, the session will be held Mon. Jan. 30, 2012, from noon to 1:30 pm in Room 102C. Live model RealLisse® demos will also be presented in the Zerran booth during show hours.

The RealLisse® suite of aftercare products, that extend the life of the hair smoothing, promote amazing shine, add moisture and conditioning, and enhance ease of styling, will be available for inspection and purchase at the show as well. Smoothing/Polishing Balm, an effective temporary texture relaxer and smoother, dramatically extends the life of a RealLisse® Vegan Hair Smoothing treatment when applied regularly. RealLisse® branded Smoothing Shampoo, Smoothing Moisture Masque, Leave-in or Rinse Conditioning Serum, and Amazon Oil complete the package.
