Answers to frequently asked questions. Happy skin, happy life!
Is Anna a cosmetic product?
Yes, Anna is a cosmetic product to improve the microbiome, the natural bacterial protection of the skin. A properly functioning microbiome strengthens healthy skin and helps against the external characteristics of blemished skin. It is not a permanent treatment as the symptoms return after some time (the subjects in our clinical test experienced the problems after an average of 28 days). However, upon resumption of use, the characteristics immediately disappeared. Anna is available through pharmacies, drug stores and our webshop.
Can I fight infected skin?
Anna normalizes the C. acnes and helps to reduce the redness and inflammation. It is even better to use Anna preventively with the first signs of emerging problems. That is why we also advise you to carry Anna with you 24/7.
Is Anna toxic?
Anna has absolutely no toxic properties; it is not toxic. Anna is on a natural basis with as active ingredient a fermented rye extract; the recipe could actually be called a food product.
Can I use Anna too often?
No, but 4 to 5 times a day is sufficient for the formula to work. More frequent use only results in faster consumption of the product, not in faster recovery. Since many foundations and makeup clog the pores, we recommend that you use as little as possible if you have sensitive skin for impurities. In addition to clogged pores, a limitation is that you can only apply Anna before applying the foundation in the morning and after cleaning in the evening.
Can I transmit infections through the (joint) use of a roll-on?
The organism Cutibacterium acnes is an anaerobic organism that is located deep in the sebum; it is only optionally aerobic. That is, the organism prefers to live in the absence of oxygen, but to some extent accepts oxygen. The chance of re-contamination (transfer of infections) with C. acnes is therefore very small. Using a so-called Kinetic Challenge Test (KCT), it was determined that the "time-to-kill" of all C. acnes organisms present on the skin is less than 10 seconds. In short: all C. acnes microorganisms that would appear on the roll-on are killed immediately. However, we do not recommend sharing the product much.
When can I expect improvement?
In our clinical tests, 95% of the volunteers were free from the appearance of an impure skin after 8 days. We assume that our test values will not be unique. We do, however, recommend that you continue treatment for a few days after the appearance has disappeared. Then the population of C. acnes bacteria can normalize again and the skin can better defend itself against any new emerging problems.
How long can you do with the product on average?
On average, our volunteers were able to use the product for 1 to 2 months. You only use the Anna is Clear formula at small problem areas and only when you need it. Therefore, despite the small package, you can use it for a long time. The skin impurities returned on average after 28 days (see point 1). This means that you need a new product after 2 months.
Where is Anna produced?
Anna is produced in a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certified factory that also has a Food Grade certification (this is necessary in connection with the rye ferment). The factory also has all the necessary ISO certifications to guarantee Anna's high quality.
International patent via the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization)
The unique rye ferment that was created by fermentation with a secret cocktail of lactobacillus bacteria (this cocktail, grown in 40 years (!), is safely stored in a Swiss bank) in combination with the unique transdermal transport and 24/7 application has been rewarded with an international patent. Quite unique in this segment and something we are very proud of.
