Our Ingredients


Anne Semonin formulations are unique and exclusive. Essential oils boosted by trace elements create a powerful cocktail of active ingredients that penetrate through the deepest layers of the skin, helping it to detoxify and regenerate rapidly. Skin looks and feels rejuvenated, fresh and radiant, with a youthful glow. 



We care about your skin, but we also care about the planet. We only use very small amounts of preservatives to guarantee the long-term stability of our formulas, and limit the use of chemical additives. We use recyclable packaging and insist on production processes that fully respect the environment. We test products in line with regulations and never test on animals.

Anne Semonin’s commitment to innovation means we are continuously researching the latest and most innovative ingredients which can make a real difference to the condition of your skin.

Here is a selection of innovative ingredients found in our range:

Sea Retinol: Found in the Anne Semonin Miracle Eye Contour Anti-Wrinkle Cream. Extracted from Crithmum maritimum (Rock Samphire – a coastal species). Similar properties to Retinol, but without irritating effects and no maximum dosage, can be used morning and night.

Marine Spring Water: Found in the Anne Semonin 100% Active Serum, 100% Active Contour Serum and Express Radiance Ice Cubes (Face). A unique water drawn in Brittany from a natural reservoir found more than 22m in depth. Its exceptional composition is different from sea water. Marine Spring Water contains a much higher level of Manganese and Silicium and is capable to lower the trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) by stimulating the production of endogenous skin lipids and to improve the circulation of water in the skin by increasing the number of hemidesmosomes (dermo-epidermal links). The use of Marine Spring Water instead of regular water, a major base of any cosmetic formula, allows Anne Semonin to claim that 100% of its key formula ingredients are “active”.

Natural Resin of Myrrh: Found in Anne Semonin Super Active Serum, Super Active Contour Serum. Extracted from a tree, it activates lipogenesis in the hypodermis and helps in building up triglyceride size in adipocyte. The skin is tightened and wrinkles diminish as a result of this mechanical effect.

Mexican Wild Yam: Found in our DHEANNE cream, this ingredient is rich in Diosgenin which increases skin regeneration and boosts cellular function by mimicking the production of oestrogen.

Neuro-Cosmetics: Skin innervation is extremely dense and reaches the most superficial layers of the epidermis. This means there is a close relationship between our skin and our nervous system. Neuro-cosmetic products, supposed to modulate the nervous system functioning at the epidermal level, are the new approach of skincare products which manage to decrease stress in the skin. The Anne Semonin Express Radiance Ice Cubes, Express Radiance Eye Ice Cubes, 100% Active Contour Serum use Tephroline, an extract of Tephrosia Purpurea (Wild Indigo) which stimulates the release of beta-endorphin, providing the skin with the feeling of well-being and therefore restoring the normal skin functions.

Jania Rubens: Found in several Anne Semonin products : Marine Toner, Marine Emulsion and Oligo Protect Cream SPF30. 
Jania Rubens is a small, red vegetal coral which has the incredible ability to bind the trace elements and minerals found in seawater (20 000 to 40 000 times richer in trace elements and sea-sourced minerals  than sea water). Its remineralizing and ultra-moisturizing power makes it one of the most effective natural ingredients of the marine world.
Phormidium persicinum: Found in Oligo Protect Cream SPF30. 
This biotechnological ingredient has been selected for its outstanding biomimetic ability to delay skin ageing. It stimulates the production of Thioredoxins, natural defense proteins in the skin, to better protect the skin from free radicals / UV damage, one of the major causes of ageing.

Botox-like Peptide (a combination of 6 natural amino acids): Found in Anne Semonin Super Active Cream. It offers the same action as Botox but is safer and avoids its side effect (chest pain, allergy, eyelid swelling…). It relaxes facial muscles to therefore avoid the wrinkles  formation.
