The power of scent
Not only can a familiar scent bring back memories but it can also send signals to the brain that affect our emotions and heighten our sense of pleasure or instil a feeling of calm and relaxation.
We never use any artificial fragrances in our products so our scent journey involved finding gentle essential oils that help with the well-ageing process and also have the most beautiful and calming fragrance notes.
Three of our chosen essential oils are:
Mandarin Orange oil has a refreshing sweet citrus aroma has been found to reduce nervous tension and anxiety, while creating a sense of harmony and balance.
Rose Otto Flower oil has a sweet, floral fragrance and is distilled from Turkish Damask roses. It has a soothing and sensual aroma that is known to calm body and mind.
Frankincense oil has a sweet, woody aroma which enhances the mood by reducing feelings of stress and anxiety while improving concentration and memory.
The healing touch
The skin is a highly sensitive organ made up of different types of sensory nerve endings. Therefore the texture of a product can evoke very powerful feelings and often the things we feel with our hands and on our skin can remind us of things we feel in our heart.
Anara products are designed to be comforting to the touch, to absorb quickly into your skin leaving it feeling loved and nourished.
As part of our formulation journey, not only were the texture of each product carefully chosen to be a sensory experience for your skin but they have been designed to be layered with one another for a comforting, hydrating routine. They have also been created to act as the perfectly protective base for SPF and make up.
Pleasing to the eyes
Colours can have a very powerful impact on your mood and emotions had therefore the colours chosen for our product formulations and packaging were very mindfully chosen:
White/clear - symbolising peace, clarity, purity and innocence
Yellow - a bright, warm and cheerful colour, invoking the feeling of a sunny day
For our packaging, the neutrality and balance of the colour grey alongside the soft, healing, and peaceful vibes given by the colour pink are brought together to form a unique mauve, known to represent decadence, youth, and purity.
At Anara Skincare the importance given to the eyes doesn’t just stop at the aesthetics. Eyes should be treated with love and respect and therefore each product in our range has been created to be used around your delicate eye area.
Whilst our products can’t directly affect hearing and taste, we know that you will be delighted then people tell you how happy and healthy your skin looks and we have often been told that our ingredient lists remind them of a delicious fruit salad!
