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.

The first cosmetics with protection against e-smog!

ANACOS products are equipped with technology that protects the contents from negative information from electromagnetic fields. Developed in collaboration with memon@ bionic instruments GmbH. The Memon technology was already developed in the 1980s by the inventor Winfried M. Dochow, since then it has been systematically improved by him and extended to a wide range of applications. A special process on a silicon-based carrier has made it possible to integrate the technology into our ANACOS cosmetics range and thus protect it from electrosmog. This keeps the ingredients fresh and natural for longer. These are consequently the first alkaline natural cosmetics with radiation protection!

From outside. To inside.

For many people, healthy, organic and fresh food goes without saying and is a must. While food reaches the inside of our body through the digestive tract, cosmetic products reach the inside of our body through our skin. Our skin is our largest organ and 10 times more receptive than our intestines. It therefore makes sense to choose high quality skin care products.

Today, as in the past: Natural. Alkaline.

Nothing was really known about the so-called acid mantle in earlier times. The amniotic fluid surrounding the fetus is consistently alkaline. Likewise, newborns do not have an acid mantle – it is only formed as they grow up. Our ancestors already knew this, which is why it was quite natural for them to clean themselves using alkaline products. Other great cultures, such as that of the Egyptians, also bear witness to the knowledge of alkaline body care. For example, the Egyptians used to bathe in Lake Natrun, a soda lake, to regenerate. Cleaning was even consistently alkaline in our great-grandmother's time. Soft soaps with a high pH value, as well as curd wraps, were considered to be proven alkaline and mild skin care.

The advantages or disadvantages are on the skin!

Compared to "normal" acid-based skin care, alkaline skin care soothes, mineralizes and detoxifies. It also has a replenishing effect. Alkaline skin care is known to normalize the sebaceous gland capacity and the skin's natural moisture, which in turn can help improve skin problems such as acne, itching or eczema. Furthermore, alkaline (natural) cosmetics help deacidify the body. Acidosis is caused by food, mineral and vitamin deficiencies, stress, lack of exercise, overexertion, and so on.

Then it got acidic (thick)!

The history of acidic cosmetics only begins in the 1950s. At that time, the industry began to switch more and more to acidic cosmetics, as the newly developed chemical emulsifiers made it easier to produce formulations in acidic environments. Over the last 30-40 years, skin care in the cosmetics industry has experienced a steady shift in the average pH value from 6.5 to pH 5.0. A development that largely depends on civilization. As the more "acidic" a civilization lives, the more acidic the metabolic processes on the skin can be measured and the more acidic the products are.

A question of measurement.

These acidic products are described as "pH skin neutral", i.e. the pH value is measured on the skin of adult test subjects. The pH value is measured on a scale of 1-14, the neutral value is accordingly 7. Everything below is called acidic, everything above is called alkaline. A pH value of 6 is therefore 10 times more acidic than a pH value of 7, a pH value of 5 is 100 times more acidic than a pH value of 7, because this table is built up logarithmically. So if you call a pH value of 5 or even 6 pH-neutral, it is only because nowadays almost everyone has an acidic skin surface. And the cosmetics industry is guided by this value.

The problem of acidosis

Stress, an unbalanced diet (fast food, sugar, extract flour, not enough vegetables and fruit) and unhealthy lifestyle (stress, coffee, cigarettes, anger, fear) together with a lack of exercise cause an increase in acids in the body and disturb its natural acid-base balance. The body reacts very sensitively to too much acid. The more acids and the longer the excess acidity, the higher the risk of damaging the natural skin flora and destroying collagen fibers. Collagen is a structural protein that provides firmness to many parts of the body – especially the skin. 30% of our proteins are collagens. If the collagen fibers are damaged or impaired, the connective tissue becomes slack, resulting in cellulite and stretch marks. Body care with alkaline natural cosmetics could in return counteract this and tone the tissue.

What about the acid mantle?

Excess acids are excreted by the body through the lungs, kidneys and bladder as well as through its largest organ, the skin. As a result, an acidic layer forms on the surface of the skin, a "mantle" of substances that the body is getting rid of. In our opinion, this mantle is therefore not primarily a protective function of the skin but the acidic deposits of excreted acids and the waste products of a stressed system. Acidic skin care repeatedly prevents the skin from eliminating these. The skin still tries to get rid of the deposits, so dry and stressed skin develops the "civilization's need" for a daily or even more frequent shower – a vicious circle!

For good reason: ANACOS.

With ANACOS SANUSLIFE has created a natural cosmetics range with a high alkaline value. The aim of this range is to neutralize, dissolve, excrete and gently treat harmful substances through the sweat and sebaceous glands using sufficient, quality minerals, alkaline baths and alkaline cosmetic products. Thus guaranteeing and supporting the skin's constant regeneration process. All quality products are characterized by natural ingredients of the highest purity, which are also protected from the negative information of electromagnetic fields with the help of Memon technology. The main ingredients of the ANACOS cosmetics range are dolomite powder, aloe vera juice, olive oil and evening primrose oil.

I’m Green!

The ANACOS products are filled into tubes made of a very special material. It looks like normal plastic but is in fact made of sugar. The magic word for this…? Green plastic! "Green plastic" is a bioplastic made from renewable resources, in the case of our ANACOS, tubes made out of sugar cane. Conventional plastic, on the other hand, is made of synthetic polymers obtained from non-renewable resources such as crude oil, a raw material that is not renewable and has no positive impact on the CO2 balance. The recycling process after production is exactly the same. The "I'm Green" label on the outside stands for the tubes made from sugar cane.

TUBAIRLESS® & TUBEASY®

The technology of the tubes is as innovative as the respective mixture of ingredients. These work according to the Tubairless® & Tubeasy® principle. A small dose of the cream rises to the opening just by gently pressing on the valve hole. The dosage is controlled by how long you press. The convenience and ease of use last from the very first to the very last day, regardless of the amount of cream left in the tube. Tubairless® supplies 20% more cream than a conventional tube. Tubairless® retains its original appearance and shape even when empty. The packaging's superb ergonomics remain intact until the very last dose.

Natural. Packaging.

It's not just the tubes that are ecologically sustainable in the new ANACOS line, but the packaging is too. These are made of "natural cardboard". Natural cardboard, also called Kraft cardboard, is brown cardboard made of solid board containing recycled fibers. As the cardboard is smoothed by machine, it is neither coated nor bleached, resulting in the cardboard's natural brown color, which may vary slightly with every production batch. Natural cardboard consists exclusively of natural fibers (primary and secondary fibers) and does not contain any chemical or artificial additives.
