Cellulose from renewable sources makes sustainability the cause of the future

Anomera is an innovator in green chemistry, materials science, and sustainable manufacturing. We are a leader in the development of naturally sourced ingredients for cosmetics. Our company balances innovations for beauty and skin care with environmental and social responsibility. The company converts raw materials from non-GMO, Forest Stewardship Certified cellulose building blocks. These building blocks are reinterpreted into a proprietary, biodegradable, cellulose platform, specifically crafted with wide-ranging new benefits for cosmetics and skin care.

Innovation and diversity at Anomera

Anomera creates fresh solutions from how nature innovates.

At Anomera, we recognize how Science can learn from the extraordinary diversity in Nature. The biological world shows a remarkable capacity to invent, adapt and replicate its inventions.

Anomera’s scientists identify where Nature uses energy-efficient and sustainable processes to craft and replicate elementary building block structural materials, like cellulose. Anomera reinterprets non-GMO, Forest Stewardship Certified cellulose into DextraCel™, an innovation in crystalline cellulose. DextraCel is a sulfate-free building-block platform material for socially responsible cosmetics and skin care ingredients, for vibrant pigments, and for coatings and composites.

From natural sources, Anomera has created its ChromaPur™ geneology for cosmetics: ChromaPur Neige, ChromaPur SPF, ChromaPur USF and OT – snow white, skin protection and coverage, enhanced optical effects and adaption to skin types.

ChromaPur is a new class of cellulose microbeads to replace microplastics. Anomera’s cellulose microbeads offer new benefits to clients of Cosmetics and Skin Care.
