About AnaCare

How does Anacare work?
Anacare works by soothing, cooling, shrinking and repairing the skin around the anal area. The natural active ingredients are carried into the skins epidermis. Anacare is also designed to leave a soothing barrier to prevent any bacteria or faeces irritating the anal area. This will aid the healing process and prevent further itching.
How much do I apply?
We recommend that a small pea sized amount should be applied. However this amount depends on the severity of anal irritation and therefore a second application may be necessary.
How frequently should I apply Anacare?
This again is depending on the severity of anal irritation the user is experiencing. In most cases our customers tell us that one pea sized application can easily last all day. We advise that Anacare is best applied when you feel any anal discomfort or after each bowel movement.

Yes, our customers report great efficacy and we receive many telephone calls to thank us for a wonderful product. We also receive many emails and letters telling us how Anacare has helped. When a customer allows we often publish these testimonials. However most customers prefer to be discreet and prefer that we do not publish their testimonials.

Anacare has been developed for soothing itching around the anal area. However we often receive feedback from customers who tell us it is fantastic for insect bites, especially midgy and mosquito bites. The cooling and soothing effect of Anacare removes the itch and soothes the inflammation caused by the bite. Please let us know if you come across another use for Anacare, we would love to know.
Does Anacare come with an applicator?
At this present time Anacare does not come with an applicator. We find applicators actually waste a lot of the product as there is no control how much is being applied. Many claim applicators that applicators can be painful to use. We do however sell finger cots (small finger condoms) that make the application a little more pleasant.
Can Anacare cause staining to my underwear?
Anacare may cause staining. This is due to the location of the product and the natural ingredients. We all know most natural plant ingredients can cause staining. These stains can be prevented by wearing dark underwear or ladies may prefer to use a liner. The good news is the stain can easily be removed with standard washing powders/liquid and a stain remover product.
