Our Ingredients

At AspireLIFE™ we formulate each of our products with one thought in mind: How can we make the most effective, highest quality, affordable, and safest products for our customers? In terms of product quality, safety, and effectiveness, we do not compromise or waver.

The key to our product’s effectiveness is in the ingredients that we use. In our Essential Essence, for example, we use 15 of the highest quality active ingredients to provide the widest range of anti-aging benefit.

Plankton Extract

Studies have shown that our formulated Plankton Extract, suspended in Liposomes for stability and durability, penetrates into the epidermis and has the appropriate "residence time" in the skin cells to be effective. Our Plankton Extract actually penetrates into the cell nucleus.

Our patented delivery system ensures sun damage prevention and deep skin repair. This ingredient also uses visible light to reverse UV damage in a process called photoreactivation.

This ingredient is both safe and natural.

Vitamin C

AspireLIFE™ uses the highest quality Vitamin C, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, for skin care applications. This ingredient clarifies, brightens and evens skin tone.

Laboratory data indicates this ingredient:

  • Reduces melanin synthesis by 80% at only .1% usage
  • Reduces Delta-L value by 15% vs. placebo at 3% (a measure of whitening effect)
  • Increases collagen by 50% at only .1% usage
  • Successfully treats acne in 80% of people at 10%
  • Protects cells against UV-B better than the other esters of Vitamin C

Most Vitamin C is highly unstable, sensitive to oxidation, and gives finished formulas a yellowish tint. Our Vitamin C is not only stable, oil and water soluble, but also bio-available.

Our Vitamin C delivers and retains in the dermis and epidermis for maximum effectiveness. It also has excellent penetration into keratinocytes, resulting in increased protection against UV-B.

Out Vitamin C has also been shown to be very effective against acne. A 10% aqueous gel produced over 75% success in treating acne patients.

Amino Acids

Amino Acids increase fatty acids in the mitochondria of the cells which allows for higher efficiency in oxygen metabolism. This increases ATP (energy) in the cells.

An ideal companion for our Vitamin C because it fortifies and supplements delivery of the Vitamin C into the skin. It also recycles Vitamin C just as well as Vitamin E does.

Vitamin E

Rosemary Extract

As skin ages, lipid production decreases and skin gets thin and dry. Our rosemary extract has the unique ability to reprogram keratinocytes to produce, as in youthful skin, the immediate triglycerides and glycol-ceranides, and the most important barrier function lipids such as ceramides and cholesterol esters.

Naturally derived from Rosemary

Wakame Extract

Provides biological protection against reactive oxygen species and over polluted environments characterized by high amounts of exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, and heavy metals, especially lead and cadmium.

Algae Extract/Mugwort Extract

Algae extract is rich in amino acids, polypeptides, and cell membrane carbohydrates combined with Mugwort Extract, which is a plant.

This ingredient is used to reduce inflammation, irritation, redness and itching. Used at 5% twice a day for 7 days, it reduced irritation by more than 68%.

Tests showed that 3% of the Algae Extract significantly reduced the size of dark spots by an average of 11% (up to 32%) after 42 days and by an average of 29% (up to 75%) after 84 days. Tests also showed that 3% of the Algae Extract significantly reduced skin pigmentation by an average of 9% (up to 36%) after 84 days.

Licorice extract is important in protecting skin, especially sensitive skin. It has been found to be effective in treating acute and chronic dermatitis.

Sodium Hyaluronate (HA)

This ingredient hydrates the skin, holding onto water and supporting all that makes the face plump and voluptuous. When HA is applied topically to the skin it can reach deep down into the dermis to combine with, maintain and attract water, as well as promote skin/blood microcirculation and nutrient absorption and maintain normal metabolism.

Found in: Essential Essence, Gentle Foaming Cleanser

Watermelon Rind Extract (Citrulline), Pyrus Malus (Apple Extract), Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract

These ingredients are among the most tested moisturizers in the cosmetic industry. They work from within the skin and from the outside. They work immediately and work longer term.
