Anakiri skin care invokes the healing and protective power of botanicals for idealized skin care.

This time of year, the skin is under constant attack from dropping temperatures and fluctuating humidity – environmental changes that threaten to drain the moisture and radiance of post-summer, sun-kissed skin. Anakiri BioEnergetic Skin Care, a line of skin care, body care, aromatherapy and apothecary products, combines natural ingredients, modern technology and ancient wisdom to form the latest revolution in the beauty and spa industries: bioenergetic skin care. 

The Anakiri line, which debuted in 2003, now spans 80 products ranging from cleansers to moisturizers, essential oils to masks and even aromatherapy. Ankari products are available only in spas.

“Most skin care lines were developed for either the beauty or medical industry and do not fully address the unique needs of the modern spa (with the concern for relaxation and healing for the body, mind and spirit),” said the line’s creator, Erich Worster. “Anakiri BioEnergetic Skin Care products and treatments are designed to address needs at each of these levels.”

Mr. Worster explained that the products were created by a research team of experienced skin care professionals and spa experts with combined expertise in the latest anti-aging science and natural medicine.

The literal translation of “bioenergenic” is “life-energy.” To Anakiri, this translates into the use of fine natural ingredients to address the skin’s “bio” aspects, or its need for nutrition and protection. The “energetic” aspects relates to the application of the principles of homeopathic and vibrational medicine, for example, to skin care.

The all-natural Anakiri line, which utilizes amber packaging and a paraben-free natural preservation system, consists of Water Essences, Cleansers, Mineral Mists, Moisturizers, Masks, PhytoNutrient Serums, Apothecary items, Massage Supplements, Body Care and Aromatherapy Oils and Blends. Water Essences, Mineral Mists and PhytoNutrient Serums are each available for seven different skin types – Rejuvenating, Soothing, Hydrating, Vitalizing, Balancing, Equalizing and Clarifying.

Each of the Water Essences consists of all-natural ingredients with no additives. For instance, the four- and two-ounce Rejuvenating Water Essence, packaged in an amber bottle and fitted with a bulb dropper cap, features lavender hydrosol, plant phospholipids and essential oils of neroli and sweet orange. The Hydrating blend consists of lavender hydrosol, plant phospholipids and essential oils of lavender and palmarosa. Seven drops of the serum is dispensed into the palm of the hand, mixed with a bit of water and applied to the face. After two to three minutes, the application is followed with a warm water compress or steam. Anakiri’s Water Essence can also be used in the bath as an aromatherapy conditioner.

The same commitment to natural ingredients is also evident in Anakiri’s Mineral Mists. The Vitalizing Mineral Mist, for example, contains lavender hydrosol, pure water, aloe vera gel, oat beta glucan, zinc acetylmethionate, sea algae extract, yeast extract, lactoperoxidase, potassium thiocyanate, retinyl palmitate polypeptide, ascorbic acid polypeptide,tocopherol polypeptide, phytic acid and Combava essential oil. Mineral Mists are applied after the removal of makeup, to cleansed skin. Four pump sprays of Mineral Mist are dispensed into palm and gently pressed onto face. The Mist is meant to be followed by PhytoNutrient Serum and moisturizer.

The company’s latest product is Essential Day Lotion, an all-natural emollient lotion ideal for everyday nourishment and protection. Made with antioxidants, alpha lipoic acid, vitamins A and C and other nutrients, Essential Day Lotion is specifically formulated to be both light and potent without the use of chemical preservatives.

Anakiri is sold at spas and resorts throughout the U.S such as The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island; Four Seasons Resort in Jackson Hole, WY; Boar’s Head Inn (Charlottesville, VA); Spa Django (Lost Pines, TX). Individual products are priced starting at $10 and sets can range up to $105.
