ananné uses plant and mineral-based additives to improve the consistency, ease of application, stability, and skin care properties of its products. Although the names of the additives are not particularly elegant to read, these are all strictly certified natural ingredients.
The most important natural additives used and their properties are described below.
Behenyl alcohol: ananné uses behenyl alcohol obtained from plant oils. It is used for its stabilising effect in emulsions, and makes emulsions and creams easier to apply to the skin.
Calcium gluconate is a mineral product and is extremely well tolerated. It promotes a stable skin moisture balance.
Cetearyl glucoside : ananné uses a plant-based cetearyl glucoside. It promotes the skin’s ability to absorb moisture.
Arachidyl glucoside is a plant-based glucoside. It calms and softens the skin, and regulates the skin’s moisture balance.
Dicaprylyl ether (plant-based) improves the skin’s absorption of other substances. It leaves the skin feeling soft.
Glyceryl stearate: The glyceryl stearate used by ananné is obtained from plant-based raw materials and improves the skin’s moisture balance. It has a pleasant and smoothing effect.
Ubiquinone (also known as Coenzyme Q10) is found in numerous organisms. The product used by ananné is obtained from plant sources. Ubiquinone is largely used in cosmetics to eliminate harmful radicals and improve the ability of cells to regenerate.
Sorbitol: The sorbitol used by ananné is obtained from plant-based raw materials and maintains moisture levels.
Tocopherol is better known as vitamin E, and is an important element in cell walls in human and animal organisms.
