“Super ingredients”, with their numerous benefits, are found in food items, but they can also be found in other products. Just as a healthy body needs nutrients, so too does glowing skin need nourishment. Anne Semonin selects the best active ingredients and “super ingredients” to ensure that their products hydrate, nourish, protect, and revitalize the skin. Start the year off right with these precious natural ingredients that boast proven effectiveness!
The best beauty ingredients are active ingredients sourced from nature
A lot has been said about super ingredients, but what, exactly makes an ingredient “super”? The super ingredient concept originated in the field of nutrition and the idea of “super foods”. These natural ingredients, full of nutrients such as antioxidants, vitamins, and omega 3 and 6, are recognized for their excellent health benefits. Goji berries, spirulina, pomegranate, almonds, and botanical oils like rapeseed and olive oils — the list is endless! The term “super ingredient” has now entered the world of cosmetics. Super ingredients are derived from fruit, vegetables, plants (aloe vera), roots (ginseng), and the sea (marine retinol, algae). With their proven effectiveness, the ingredients nourish and rebalance the skin — dramatically delaying the signs of aging.
Anne Semonin has used essential oils since its inception
Anne Semonin has used natural super ingredients in their exclusive formulas since its inception more than 35 years ago. A pioneer in natural beauty, the company’s R&D department draws inspiration from nature and places a high value on results-driven active ingredients. Anne Semonin was one of the first beauty brands to harness the unrivalled benefits of essential oils for their face and body treatments. And with good reason. Containing hundreds of active molecules, plant, fruit, and vegetable concentrates are undoubtedly earth’s most effective natural ingredients!
Intensive Complexes and Precious Serums: two must-haves
The formulas of the four Intensive Complexes (nourishing, soothing, detoxifying, and balancing) contain a smorgasbord of ingredients that suit all skin types and needs!* Think essential oils of mandarin, lemon zest, tea tree, sage, oregano, grapefruit, rosemary, peppermint, and carrot. The skincare products, powered by a combination of essential oils and potent trace elements, are quickly absorbed into the epidermis to produce unrivalled results. These must-have products can be used on their own or in combination with other Anne Semonin products for improved effectiveness and results that are second to none! The sublime Precious Serum is another beauty essential. Essential oils of lavender, geranium flower, palmarosa, and Damask rose combine in the perfect recipe for tired, mature, or dull skin.
Spirulina, sea retinol and other hard-working ingredients...
The marine environment is a great source of high-performance active ingredients. Spirulina (from microalgae) has detoxifying properties and is used in Anne Semonin’s Peel Off Mask, while sea retinol, extracted from samphire, is a key ingredient in the brand’s Miracle Anti-Wrinkle Eye Contour Cream. Sea retinol has the same properties as retinol, but without causing irritation or photosensitization of the skin. This means that it can be used mornings and evenings to improve cell renewal and to minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
Marine spring water: the super “active” water
Another super ingredient used by Anne Semonin is marine spring water, which is more effective than the demineralized water found in most cosmetics. The pure and unique “active” water comes from the coast of Brittany and is found at a depth of more than 22 metres. The hero ingredient of the Super Active Serum is rich in manganese and silicon and slows down the skin’s natural dehydration process. Marine spring water has been proven to hydrate the skin and improve its firmness. The formula of this exceptional anti-aging serum contains other powerful natural ingredients, like myrrh resin, with its plumping properties, and red algae, to stimulate the skin’s defense and repair systems.
Powerful ingredients of the highest quality
Anne Semonin is dedicated to finding innovative and high-performance active ingredients. In formulating the Dheanne Cream, the company sourced wild yam from Mexico for its regenerating and anti-aging properties. This rare and powerful ingredient does wonders for the skin! The cream also contains aloe vera, well known for its deeply moisturizing and soothing effects on the skin. The Regenerating Night Mask is further testament to the company’s innovative use of natural active ingredients. Extracts of Lindera, a small shrub from Asia, and extracts of Albizia (or silk tree) synchronize the biological clock and reduce the tell-tale signs of fatigue. The addition of hyaluronic acid (deeply hydrating) and tea leaf extract (a super antioxidant), makes the Regenerating Night Mask the ideal product to repair, protect, and hydrate the skin. Just like a good night’s sleep, its use will ensure a fresh, plumped, and luminous complexion.
