The Anakena brand was born on Easter Island where I, Petra (its creator and owner), have been living for almost 20 years.
It's a story that began 12 years ago when I started making handmade soaps with flowers and herbs from my own garden. It was a lot of fun and many other products followed over the years. With the exception of toothpaste and deodorant, I made almost every natural cosmetic product that can be handcrafted and sold them in my small naturist store on the island, called "Rapa Nui Natural Products".
Anakena grew and soon the handmade products gave way to a line of natural cosmetics produced on a larger scale by the renowned Bellcos Laboratory in Santiago, Chile.
Two years ago we started with a production of the cosmetics brand Anakena in Germany and France.
It has not been an easy road, but we are confident that Anakena will also succeed in conquering Europe.
In the pictures you can see a lip gloss, a solid perfume and a calendula soap with milk. These products are handmade in Rapa Nui.
