- Ingredients -
Here at ANNWYN we have adapted centuries of research across global cultures about the restorative properties of botanical ingredients, and applied that knowledge to the demands that modern day people place on their skin and body today. ANNWYN's belief is that we should only feed our bodies with ingredients that heal and promote wellbeing. We're proud of what is in our products (and what's not) and below is some background on our key ingredients:

Apricot Kernel Oil

Although originating from Armenia, there is a long history of apricot kernel oil in Chinese medicine and Confucius is said to have taught his pupils under an apricot tree.


Marshmallow Root Oil

Marshmallow root has a long history in folk medicine that dates back  to Ancient Greek and Egyptian times.


Prickly Pear Seed Oil

The native Berber women of Morocco have used prickly pear seed oil for centuries as part of their beauty regime.


White Poppy Seed Oil

Our white poppy seed oil is 100% UK-grown and is cold-pressed from the seeds of the white poppy and refined lightly to preserve the natural vitamin E content.


Borage Oil

Originating from the Middle East, borage oil was widely sought after by the Romans who believed it instilled happiness in people. 


Pomegranate glycerol

The pomegranate remains a powerful symbol today, depicting prosperity, fertility, ambition and life-giving.


Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip seed oil comes from the fruit left after the rose has flowered and the petals have fallen.

Wild Nettle

According to the Anglo-Saxon Nine Herbs Charm, wild nettle was used as protection against 'elf-shot' (mysterious pains thought to be caused by the arrows of the elvin folk).

But earthlier happy is the rose distilled

Than that which withering on the virgin thorn

Grows, lives and dies in single blessedness.

- William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
