INGREDIENTS

Nothing can be made “chemical-free” by definition, but it can be made with nature and science, safely.
We want you to compare our ingredients to what others offer in their products, if you can’t find what is in a product then that tells you something.
Superoxide Dismutase
SOD are essential enzymes that eliminate superoxide radical (O2-) and thus protect cells from damage induced by free radicals. AETHEION, with its bioavailable Cu/Zn, counteracts the effects of overproduction of superoxide by utilizing a mineral complex system that can permeate into the affected tissues.
-The structural biochemistry of the superoxide dismutases
Ammonium Sulfate
Is an inorganic sulfate that is a salt of sulfuric acid from nitrogen and sulfur. Ammonium sulfate is a mineral salt readily found in nature. It is used as an emulsifier, stabilizer, and solubilizer in AETHEION formulations.
– Safety Assessment of Inorganic Sulfates as Used in Cosmetics– Select Committee on GRAS Substances (SCOGS) – Ammonium sulfate (archived)
Zinc Sulfate
Zinc is a naturally occurring mineral. Zinc is important for growth and for the development and health of body tissues. 2800 proteins in biological systems have been identified to potentially bind and require zinc.
– U.S. Department of Health & Human Services – Zinc Fact Sheet for Consumers
Copper Sulfate
The ability of copper to easily accept and donate electrons explains its important role in oxidation-reduction (redox) reactions and in scavenging of free radicals.
- Using Copper to Improve the Well-Being of the Skin
Water
Our formulations use water that is purified and then distilled.
- TBF
Ceteth-10 Phosphate
Is a component of the Crodafos™ CES system which is used for conditioning and emulsifying properties in the AETHEION formulation
- Cetearyl Alcohol (and) Dicetyl Phosphate (and) Ceteth-10 Phosphate
Cetearyl Alcohol
Is a component of the Crodafos™ CES system which is a fatty alcohol that keeps the AETHEION emulsion from separating into its liquid components, it is widely used in cosmetics for this purpose and its safety. Cetearyl Alcohol was chosen over Ethanol which is widely used in other products, but it has shown to create health risks
– Alcohol in cosmetics – is it safe?– Ethanol signals for apoptosis in cultured skin cells.
Dicetyl Phosphate
Is a component of the Crodafos™ CES system which is used as an emulsifier and stabilizing agent. A Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel concluded that dicetyl phosphate is safe in the present practices of use and concentration in cosmetics.

Shea Butter
An ivory-colored fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree. We use premium shea butter which is a triglyceride derived mainly from stearic acid and oleic acid, it is widely used in cosmetics as a skin moisturizer and contains vitamin A. Pure Shea butter has been known for improving a number of skin conditions, including blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, and dermatitis.

Dimethyl Isosorbide
Is a high purity solvent and carrier which offers a safe, effective delivery enhancement mechanism for active ingredients in cosmetic products.
– Dimethyl Isosorbide to Enhance BPO Delivery and Efficacy, and Reduce Irritation– Dimethyl Isosorbide A long history of safe usage
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride
Is a specific fraction of coconut/palm oil fatty acids resulting in a more stable and skin-loving compound of caprylic and capric fatty acids which create a dry, silky, smooth form of esters.
– What is Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride?– No known health or safety issues with Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride
Cetyl Alcohol
Is a fatty alcohol that occurs naturally in small quantities in plants and animals. It is used as a lubricant and thickening agent in AETHEION formulations.
– Cosmetics Info.org overview of Cetyl Alcohol and its Safety– Low Hazard Safety evaluation on the Skin Deep Cosmetic Database
Sodium Hyaluronate
Is the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid gives skin volume by holding onto water and as levels decline with age, skin loses its youthful fullness. Sodium Hyaluronate is the ultimate skin moisturizer.
– Cosmetics Info.org – Sodium Hyaluronate is safe as a cosmetic ingredient.– Skin Deep Cosmetic Database – No Hazard Rating
Farnesol
Is a colorless liquid extracted from oils of plants such as citronella, neroli, cyclamen, and tuberose. It is an organic compound (natural sesquiterpene alcohol) that is used as a bactericide in AETHEION products.
– Cosmetic info.org – Farnesol – FDA approved as GRAS– US Library of Medicine – Farnesol
Citric Acid
Is a weak organic acid found in citrus fruits that acts as a natural preservative? Citric acid is used as a pH adjusting agent in AETHEION formulations it additionally is used for its preservative actions.
– US Library of Medicine – Citric Acid– Cosmetic info.org – Citric Acid – FDA approved as GRAS
Silver Citrate
Is a preservative that’s a “natural” alternative to bad toxic substances that are used in other products.

Silver works by breaking down the cell membrane of the bacterium and denaturing the enzymes within, acting as an antimicrobial. Silver citrate is the salt of silver and citric acid, where silver exists in its ionic form. Silver citrate in the presence of citric acid is a patented compound in a product called Silverion 2400, this is used as a preservative in AETHEION formulations.

– Silverion™ 2400 Technical Data Sheet– European Commission – Scientific Committee on Consumer Products Citric acid (and) Silver citrate.
Sodium Hydroxide
Is used to control the pH of AETHEION formulations in a range of 4.5 to 5.0
– A Closer Look at Sodium Hydroxide (archived)– Cosmetic info.org – Sodium Hydroxide – FDA approved as GRAS

All of our raw ingredients require a certificate of analysis verifying its purity at our GMP manufacturing facility.
