For our ancestors it was natural to use alkaline substances for personal hygiene. But also other great cultures, like the Egyptians, have left evidence of the use of these substances for body care. The Egyptians, for example, used to take soothing, rejuvenating baths in Lake Natron, a lake full of sodium carbonate hydrate, also known as natron.

Even in our great-grandmothers’ times cleaning was mainly alkaline. Soft soaps with a high pH value, and quark wraps were considered excellent, well-proven alkaline remedies for gentle skin care. Special alkaline cosmetics were therefore considered unnecessary.

The history of acidic cosmetics begins in the 1950s. At the time, the cosmetic industry progressively switched towards the production of acidic cosmetics, given that the newly developed chemical surfactants had simplified the manufacturing, in an acidic environment, of formulations which then affirmed themselves as a substitute for soap.

Since our body fluids, such as blood (pH from 7.35 to 7.45), saliva (pH 7.5) or tear fluid (pH 7.35), are alkaline by nature, it is obvious that the skin must also be kept slightly alkaline to allow the skin cells to "work" in the best way possible.

The products are completely natural and free of contaminants or other harmful substances, therefore they automatically block negative external influences. Users of other cosmetics should check for the presence of the following critical ingredients:

5-Bromo-5-nitro-1,3-dioxane / Acrylates copolymer / Acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer / Aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex GLY / Aminomethyl propanol / Behentrimonium chloride / Benzoic acid / Benzophenone-3 / Benzyl alcohol / Benzyl salicylate / Butane / Butylated hydroxytoluenel (BHT) / Butylparaben / Ceteareth-20 / Cetrimonium chloride / Chamomilla recutita (matricaria) extract / CI 15510 (D&C Orange #4) / CI 42051 (Acid blue) / CI 42090 (FD&C Blue #1) / CI 60730 (Ext.

Thanks to its particular blend and processing of high quality ingredients, the ANACOS line of cosmetics seduces with its high alkaline value. Your skin, more easily freed from acids, can recover and regenerate itself and once again become that of a child. Its texture will appear more compact and your complexion will be visibly improved.

SANUSLIFE® INTERNATIONAL has taken the wealth of knowledge handed down by our ancestors and has created a line of natural cosmetics endowed with a high alkaline value, aimed to enhance the skin’s ongoing regeneration process and to make it look like baby skin. Just like amniotic fluid in the womb, in fact, the skin of infants also has a high alkaline value.

In addition to rosemary and lemon extract, "dolomite", a sedimentary rock named after the French mineralogist Déodat de Dolomieu, represents ANACOS’s principal ingredient.

ANACOS stands for ALKALINE NATURAL COSMETICS. Thanks to the special combination of completely pure, high-quality ingredients and their unique processing, ANACOS products excel for their absolute naturalness and particularly high alkaline value.
