1. How everything began
The Institut AllergoSan was founded in 1991. It was created and based on an idea by Mag. Anita Frauwallner and 20 other doctors, pharmacists and marine biologists to provide allergen-free foods and drugs for patients. The majority of clients back then had been suffering from chronic skin diseases such as neurodermatitis and psoriasis for many years and had finally found relief from their suffering.
In 1992, Mag. Anita Frauwallner became the manager of the Institute and put the focus on a special holistic and medicinal approach. Her philosophy was that the health of human beings is largely dependent on a healthy digestion. From 1993 onwards, the Institue produced allergen-free foods and orthomolecular supplements, as well as the first probiotics.

Mag. Anita Frauwallner has been in charge of the AllergoSan Institute for almost 30 years. The institute is an Austrian company that works in cooperation with countless universities worldwide to make contributions with scientific studies in the field of probiotic medicine.

4. A family business
The Institut AllergoSan celebrated its first outstanding success back in the ’90s, not just with its first multispecies probiotic, but also with the development of the skincare line JAVACELL for people with neurodermatitis and psoriasis. Thanks to the married couples shared pharmacy in Graz, Austria, they had direct contact with their customers. This intense customer contact allowed them to see how a holistic approach “from inside and outside” could provide chronic patients with a carefree life.
After selling the pharmacy at the end of 2001, Mag. Anita Frauwallner dedicated her time to research at the Institut AllergoSan. The development of medically relevant probiotics and the combination of herbal essence with orthomolecular vitamins and minerals was the key to success.
