Steiner Cosmetics was founded in 1996 by Daniela and Ulrike Steiner and Paul Pizzinini and is headquartered in Italy. Steiner Cosmetics partners with prestigious hotels in running “state of the art” spas, currently operating eleven such spas in Europe. In addition to the spas, Steiner Cosmetics has created a line of skin care products. There are twelve products in the line that include Care Suite Eye and Face Cleanser, Care Suite Sensitive Skin Refresher, Care Suite Refining Exfoliator, Care Suite Firming and Balance, Care Suite Immediate Mask, Care Suite Basic Moisturizer, Care Suite Light Skin Wear, Care Suite Active Skin Wear, Care Suite Rose Idol Skin Wear, Care Suite Energizing Essence, Care Suite Eye Cream and Care Suite Total Body Wear.
Many Health Spas promote their own line of products as a way to “up sell” their clientele and keep them coming back for additional treatments. Care Suite Active Skin Wear seems to be the only one of the Steiner Cosmetic items intended to target the problem of anti-aging of the facial skin. The product promises to “contrast the early signs of aging” of the skin, giving it a well-groomed and radiant look for the whole day. According to the official website, the ingredients included in the product are Helianthus Anuus (Vitamin A extracted from sunflower seed) and Thuya Extract (tree of life). There are no advanced anti-aging ingredients listed in the product such as Matrixyl 3000 or Hyaluronic Acid. The official website does not make the products available for purchase online nor does the website direct consumers to where the products can be found. There are no before and after photos and no clinical research posted on the Steiner Cosmetics website.
- Products are formulated from a prestigious Italian spa.

The Bottom Line
The products offered by Steiner Cosmetics may appeal to consumers who prefer the “spa experience” and to be pampered, however the formulas appear to very basic and contain no advanced anti-aging ingredients. Many health spas formulate their own products with the intention of enhancing the spa experience for their clientele and to lure them back for further treatments. Steiner Cosmetics does not make their skin care products available to the general public for purchase and most people cannot afford to travel to Italy to enjoy a spa experience. It would be helpful if Steiner Cosmetics offered an online checkout option as well as customer testimonials and before and after photos of their clients. To be successful, skin care companies must make their products available to consumers in every way possible.
