Hyaluronic In Aliven: Vegan or Rooster Comb?
There is a lot of confusion around hyaluronic acid (HA) and where it is sourced from.
In the cosmetic industry, there are only 2 sources of hyaluronic acid.
It is either 100% synthesized in the lab (suitable for vegans) or it is sourced from roosters combs.
Our source of HA is guaranteed of:
no animal origins
no animal testing
Yet another healthy reason to use Aliven Gele’ on your clients!

2016 The Year of Hyaluronic
I’m doing a HaPpY dance…
This morning I woke up to this email from MindBodyGreen (mbg)
Quote: “Despite the fact that we’re only two weeks in, I’m going to go ahead and call it now: 2016 is the year of hyaluronic acid. Even the New York Times agrees, deeming this the “second coming” of the acid’s popularity. (I don’t remember the “first coming,” but given that this stuff has been around for decades, I believe it happened.)
~ Allie White, MGC Editor
Why am I exceptionally HaPpY ?
Aliven Gele’s second ingredient is Hyaluronic !
Now that’s a lot of hyaluronic… we’re on to something awesome here!
Benefits of Hyaluronic in Aliven Gele’
Holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water
Hydrating, making skin moist and supple
Excellent conductor of electricity due to its water binding capabilities
Naturally occurring inside our body
Because it attracts and binds to water, it causes a slight plumping.
This plumping helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving skin a more youthful appearance
This subtle plumping increases volume, making younger looking skin
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the dermis of the skin makes it even more appealing as a skin care ingredient
People are increasingly looking for products that contain natural ingredients that aren’t toxic and won’t harm or irritate skin.
The Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database classifies it as an ingredient with a low potential for toxicity and gives it a high safety rating.
Non-irritating to skin
Does not leave a “greasy” feel to the skin.
You can use Aliven Gele’ as a Hydrating Serum
Simply apply a small amount around eye area to help hydrate and plump fine lines. Apply as a hydrating serum under other serums, moisturizers or masks.
In the treatment room, use it with MicroCurrent, LED, ultrasonic and any other device needing a conducting medium.
Aliven Gele’. More than “just” a micro current gel… A luxurious, nutritious, clean and healthy hydrating serum gele’. That’s a mouthful !
InJoy using Aliven Gele’ on you and your clients skin !

Algae Extract in Aliven Gele’: Dunaleila Salina
Why We Have Algae Extract in Aliven Gele’
A very important reason for using micro current on our clients’ skin is for stimulating ATP or adenosine triphosphate.
ATP is manufactured in the cells mitochondria. The mitochondria are the energy source of all cells. ATP is the fuel to all of life’s activities..
Our algae extract in Aliven Gele’ significantly increases ATP production in mitochondria by up to 40% without the use of micro current. Add in micro current with Aliven Gele’ and you are significantly energizing your clients’ skin.
A Few Key Facts about Dunaleila Salina

Protects mitochondria against oxidative stress and
activates them with a nutrient cocktail of amino acids,
minerals, & carbohydrates
Significantly increases ATP production in mitochondria
by up to 40%
9 out of 10 users showed an improvement in skin

brightness in dermatological tests
Excellent acceptance among users, with a significant
improvement in skin complexion
Skin energizing formulations to visibly improve skin luminosity
Perfect radiance enhancer
Protective day care for fresher and radiant looking skin
A great question / comment I’ve gotten on FB about algae:
I’ve heard algae clogs pores and is not safe for acne, is this true with
Algae extracts deemed as pore-clogging are those that are mucilage, as seaweed in general naturally are.
Our algae is a highly purified fresh water blue algae extract of Dunaleila Salina with a very tiny molecular structure that is ‘water-like and would not be pore clogging at all. With its tiny molecular structure, it is easily absorbed into the skin.
When seaweed and algae are comedogenic it’s primarily when someone has an “iodine allergy” that a problem occurs. If someone has an iodine allergy (unbeknownst to them) and they use products containing seaweed/algae it can cause significant breakouts with pustules, inflammation and deep cyst like lesions at times.
This is why they say if someone has acne to stay away from seaweeds and algae’s. It’s cautionary, not because it will make it worse but if they are “allergic” to iodine (which is high in seaweed and algae) it would definitely make it worse.
The solution is we as Estheticians need to always present the question on our ‘intake form’, “Are you allergic to iodine?”
I hope this helps your understanding of why Aliven Gele’ is more than “just” a micro current gele’.

Aliven Gele’ Ingredient Spotlight: Hyaluronic
“Creating lusciously plump, moist skin with a youthful quality”
A benefit of having Sodium Hyaluronate in Aliven Gele’
~Skin Caring Shari
Brilliantly formulated with Sodium Hyaluronate, creating the luxurious consistency of warm honey
Aliven Gele’ is not a gel, but, rather, a gele’. Most gels are created with carbomer, a cross linked plastic. We wanted to stay away from this ingredient, keeping Aliven naturally clean and nourishing for you and your clients skin.
What is Sodium Hyaluronate?
According to WikipediA, Sodium Hyaluronate is the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid, a glycosaminoglycan found in various connective, epithelial and neural tissues.
Benefits of Sodium Hyaluronate:
- Sodium Hyaluronate has a smaller molecular size than HA.
- This makes it especially penetrative, capable of moving into the deeper layers of the skin
- Holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water ! Woot! Woot!
- Hydrating, making skin moist and supple
- Excellent conductor of electricity due to its water binding capabilities
- Naturally occurring inside our body and is responsible for the “plump” quality of youthful skin.
- Because it attracts and binds to water, it causes a slight plumping.
- This plumping helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving skin a more youthful appearance
- This subtle plumping increases volume, making younger looking skin
- The fact that hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the dermis of the skin makes it even more appealing as a skin care ingredient
- People are increasingly looking for products that contain natural ingredients that aren’t toxic and won’t harm or irritate skin.
- The Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database classifies it as an ingredient with a low potential for toxicity and gives it a high safety rating.

Aliven How-to Video
Aliven Gele’ is super hydrating with it’s hyaluronic acid. The Neroli hydrosol base is excellent for all skin types PLUS the aroma is simply lovely and calming to the senses and the mind. The algae extract ( fresh water algae) increases ATP production and makes the skin luminous… Aliven Gele’ is so much more than just a conducting gel. It is alive with nutrition and feeds your clients skin to a healthy glow.
Best to keep Aliven Gele’ in a cool dark space. Refrigeration is highly recommended. The Neroli Hydrosol is sensitive to light and heat and will change color over time. It is still safe to use when and if this occurs.
Feel free to use it as a stand alone hydrating mask, a hydrating serum under moisturizers, and on other parts of the body to add extra hydration to dry skin.
Aliven Gele’ may be used with any equipment needing a conducting gel. Great with micro current, LED, ultrasound, spatula… You get the idea !
If you care about infusing only clean healthy ingredients into your clients skin Aliven Gele’ is for you!
