Asepta Use the Very Latest Techniques in Cosmetology

We are always being asked What makes Asepta Products Unique? The answer is two-fold:

- The Ingredients used.

- The high-tech processes used to make the ingredients easily available so they can be used by the body.

Examples Of This Are Lipoaminoacids:

Lipoaminoacids are patented and are found in many of the Asepta products. They are a combination of fatty acids and amino acids that form a chain that is able to penetrate the skin at the molecular level and will target a specific problem i.e. There are different lipoaminoacids for dryness, perspiration etc.

Silk Lipesters

A new and exclusive ingredient from the Asepta Research Laboratories

A new and exclusive ingredient from the Asepta Research Laboratories Silk Lipesters include the Fatty Acids and Esterified Amino Acids of silk, with added Serine.
Serine is a moisturizing amino acid, which is keratolytic and a precursor in the synthesis of ceramides.
Lipesters cause the active agents to penetrate better, and the bioavailability of the amino-acids is enhanced.

Cosmetic Properties of the Silk Lipesters/Serine:

  • - Carries silk amino acids and serine across the skin barrier
  • - Repairing and moisturizing
  • - or Anti-bacterial
  • - or Anti-fungal

Shea Butter

Shea Butter, also known as Karite Butter, is a cream-coloured fatty substance made from the nuts of Karite Nut Trees that grow in West and Central Africa.

Shea Butter, also known as Karite Butter, is a cream-coloured fatty substance made from the nuts of Karite Nut Trees that grow in West and Central Africa.

Shea Butter repairs, moisturizes and protects the skin from harsh external factors. It nourishes the skin with Vitamins A, E and F. It soothes rough, dry or chapped skin.

It penetrates easily, allowing the skin to breathe and not clogging pores.

Shea Butter has a high level of cinnamic acid, a natural sun screen, so it provides some degree of protection from the sun.

Imperata Cylindrica

This plant is a natural super moisturiser. It comes from the Australian desert and is able to survive in such hostile surroundings thanks to its potency in potassium and DMSP (dimethylsulfopropionate).

This plant is a natural super moisturiser. It comes from the Australian desert and is able to survive in such hostile surroundings thanks to its potency in potassium and DMSP (dimethylsulfopropionate). Potassium acts as a pump to allow water to enter the cell, DMSP acts as a trap to prevent water leaving the cells.

Asepta laboratories use this property in all its formulas in order to give them an intense and long lasting hydrating function.

Camelina Oil

Camelina Sativa

Camelina Sativa seeds contains an oil very rich in
Omega 3 Linolenic Fatty Acid (40%)
and Omega 6 Linolenic Fatty Acid (20%).

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Hydrating
  • Repairing

Grape Seed Oil

Grape seed oil is rich in Omega 6

Rich in Omega 6 Linoleic Fatty Acid (70%), this oil helps protect the elasticity of the skin and to moisturize it while preserving its barrier function.
It has mildly astringent qualities, which help to tighten and tone the skin, making it a good cosmetic ingredient for anti-aging products. The oil contains palmitic, palmitoleic, stearic, oleic, linoleic, as well as alpha linolenic, icosanoic, icosenoic and docosanoic fatty acids. Linoleic acid is very important for the health of the skin as well as cell membranes.
Grape seed contains proanthocyanidins, which are very potent antioxidants; helpful for diminishing the sun's damaging effects and lessening free radical damage. Proanthocyanidins are also helpful in wound healing.
The antioxidant effect of this oil is most useful when fighting the ravages of aging, as the oxidative stress caused by free radicals, which are neutralized by antioxidants, is one of the major factors that cause aging.
Apart from its great skin moisturizing properties, it also has good restructuring virtues, making it a popular ingredient in cosmetic manufacture.

Centella Asiatica

Centella Asiatica is used in the manufacture of superior quality skin care and cosmetic products. It is a plant found in Madagascar.

What You Should Know About Moisturizers

We are often asked why most Asepta foot products do not contain Urea.

Doctors classify moisturizers in four categories:

  • Occlusives - These contain mineral oils, or lanolin, or zinc oxides. They are generally messy to use. Mineral oils can cause folliculitis and lanolin causes dermatitis. For these reasons they are not often prescribed these days, although you can see them at the pharmacy.
  • Humectants - These contain ingredients such as sorbitol, glycerine, alphahydroxyacids, and also UREA. Humectants attract water when applied to the skin and this should theoretically improve hydration of the upper levels. However, the water that is drawn to the skin is often water from other cells, not atmospheric water. With this type of moisturizer evaporation from the skin can continue and actually make the dryness worse. Manufacturers’ attempts to include humectants into moisturizers do not always produce a beneficial effect. High concentrations of propylene glycol and urea can be irritating. Pure mixtures of amino acids are useless as moisturizers. Pure solutions of glycerin are ineffective, and propylene glycol by itself is irritating. Alphahydroxyacids, such as lactic acid or glycolic acid appear to increase cohesion of the stratum corneum cells, thereby reducing roughness and scaling, but again, lactic acid can cause irritation. For these reasons some people are said to be allergic to urea when they have a reaction such as skin rash and irritation. Also urea can tend to clog up the pores of the skin because of the effect of the evaporation from the skin. The skin does not absorb urea quickly and may leave a greasy feeling.
  • Emollients - Emollients such as fatty acids and cholesterol are said to reduce the roughness of the skin but they are not always effective.
  • Rejuvenators - Skin rejuvenators contain proteins to rejuvenate the skin. Akieine is in this category. Some say these will not work because the molecules are too large to penetrate the epidermis, and this is true in some cases. However, Akileine creams have proven to be effective, and this is because of their patented lipoaminoacids that work to regenerate the skin. Lipoaminoacids are a combination of fatty acids and amino acids that form a chain that can penetrate into the skin at the molecular level. It is this action that makes Akileine a unique range of products. No other footcare line in the world contains lipoaminoacids.
