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 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’.
