Age Spot (Senile Lentigo) 3 weeks later:


Ala-Septic solution was developed by Allen Cohen out of his desire and hobby of dermatology research stemming from a personal family battle with disease.  After a few anecdotal successes, Mr. Cohen has secured a US Patent (7,597,914) for the product.  98% of the ingredients in the product are naturally occurring and are regarded as safe as no one has reported any side effects with the product.  Ala-Septic is classified under the FDA as an OTC drug for eczema; therefore we cannot make any claims regarding the efficacy or make any correlation to any indications outside of this use.  We can make general statements such as application instructions etc.  The product as of March 2010 has been used on about 20 people for a wide range of ailments. These conditions include eczema, sun spots, etc.  Again we must emphasize often that this product has not been evaluated by the FDA outside of eczema and it is not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any disease outside of the eczema monograph.


The FD&C Act defines drugs, in part, by their intended use, as "articles intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease" and "articles (other than food) intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of man or other animals" [FD&C Act, sec. 201(g)(1)].

So what is it?  It is a concentrated solution that has the consistency of a hand lotion or soap.  The following is an in depth description of the ingredients.  Why are we sharing our secret?  The secret is in the ratio of ingredients and the process involved.  We are protected under US patent law and we want you to know what is in the product so you can do further research yourself.



Ethyl Alcohol

Alcohols are classified as primary, secondary, or tertiary dependent upon the number of other organic groups, denoted R, attached to the carbon atom with the hydroxyl ( –OH) group. Those with two hydrogen atoms attached to the carbon atom with the attached hydroxyl group are called primary. Those with one hydrogen atom attached to the carbon with the hydroxyl group are called secondary, and those with no hydrogen atoms attached to the carbon atom with the hydroxyl group are called tertiary. Thus, a primary alcohol has the form RCH2 – OH; a secondary alcohol has the form R2CH – OH: and a tertiary alcohol, the form R3C – OH. The R groups do not need to be the same.  

Ethyl Alcohol - for which the more scientific name is ethanol - is the substance that we find in beverages. For the remainder of this unit, consider the words ethyl alcohol, alcohol and ethanol to be interchangeable.

Purified Water

Distillation of water generally means boiling the water so that any chemicals present are separated in the process. As water steam or vapor rise from a boiling batch, it is captured in tubes and allowed to cool back down to liquid state. Such a process can remove many chemicals from water, since they won’t turn into a vapor state. Often, water is double distilled.

Salicylic Acid

Topical salicylic acid is used to help clear and prevent pimples and skin blemishes in people who have acne. Topical salicylic acid is also used to treat skin conditions that involve scaling or overgrowth of skin cells such as psoriasis (a skin disease in which red, scaly patches form on some areas of the body), ichthyoses (inborn conditions that cause skin dryness and scaling), dandruff, corns, calluses, and warts on the hands or feet. Salicylic acid is in a class of medications called keratolytic agents. Topical salicylic acid treats acne by reducing swelling and redness and unplugging blocked skin pores to allow pimples to shrink. It treats other skin conditions by softening and loosening dry, scaly, or thickened skin so that it falls off or can be removed easily.

Melaleuca Alternifolia  

Tea tree oil is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves of Melaleuca Alternifolia. Tea tree oil is purported to have antiseptic properties and has been used traditionally to prevent and treat infections. While numerous laboratory studies have demonstrated antimicrobial properties of tea tree oil (likely due to the compound terpinen-4-ol), only a small number of high-quality trials have been published. Human studies have focused on the use of topical tea tree oil for fungal infections (including fungal infections of the nails and athlete's foot), acne, and vaginal infections. However, there is a lack of definitive available evidence for the use of tea tree oil in any of these conditions, and further study is warranted.


A natural alternative to hydrocortisone and it is used in many formulations to activate and increase the effects of other herbs. It acts much like your body's own natural corticosteroids. Licorice decreases generation of damaging molecules called free radicals at the site of inflammation and it inhibits an enzyme that's involved in the inflammatory process. 


Iodoquinol .3%

An antifungal and corticosteroid combination used to treat skin redness and itching due to eczema or infection. It may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor.


Tocopheryl Acetate Vitamin E

An antioxidant that protects cell membranes and other fat-soluble parts of the body, such as low-density lipoprotein (LDL; “bad” cholesterol) cholesterol, from damage.  Where is it found? Wheat germ oil, nuts and seedswhole grainsegg yolks, and leafy green vegetables all contain vitamin E. Certain vegetable oils should contain significant amounts of vitamin E. However, many of the vegetable oils sold in supermarkets have had the vitamin E removed in processing. The high amounts found in supplements, often 100 to 800 IU per day, are not obtainable from eating food.

Aloe Barbadensis

Aloe Vera leaf contains more than 200 different constituents. The juice contains, on average, more than 99% water. Some constituents are: Acemannan and other polysaccharides boost T-lymphocyte cells which help promote skin healing and neutralize many of the enzymes responsible for damaging the mucosal wall

  • Aloe-emodin

  • Aloins, Barbaloin and Isobarbaloin

  • amino acids

  • amorphous Aloin

  • approximately 96% water

  • enzymes

  • essential fatty acids (anti-inflammatory).

  • essential oil

  • Galactomannans (long chain sugars derived from plants)

  • glycoproteins (protein-carbohydrate compounds that speed the healing process by stopping pain and inflammation)

  • minerals

  • polysaccharides (a type of carbohydrate that stimulates skin growth and repair)

  • resin

  • vitamin C

  • vitamin E

  • Zinc

and mucopolysaccharides* [MPS] (long-chain sugars). Mucopolysaccharides [MPS] are found in every single cell in the body.  The human body stops manufacturing its own mucopolysaccharides around puberty and from then on must rely on outside sources.   Mucopolysaccharides work in the body by:


  • assisting the transfer of gases in the lungs

  • facilitating absorption of water, electrolytes and nutrition in the gastrointestinal tract and maintaining fluid movement

  • generating healthy intestinal flora

  • lining the colon to keep out toxic waste from the body

  • lubricating the joints

  • protecting teach cell from microbial invasion (especially viruses)

  • stopping damage and leakage of the intestinal wall


Larrea Tridentata

Often referred to as "creosote bush" "Larrea" or "Shegoi" inhabits the deserts and canyons of southwestern United States and Mexico. It is abundant and widespread at elevations under 3000 ft. often incorrectly referred to as "chaparral" which refers to a grouping of dense thicket and shrubbery in the desert, not just one plant as with Larrea tridentata. This remarkable plant has a long history of use by Native Americans and European settlers in the southwestern deserts of the United States. Known as one of the oldest-living plants, some of these plants are dated to almost 12,000 years ago. It has been verified that it is indeed among the oldest living plants in the world.  Just think; Some Larrea plants that are currently living actually started growing before the Pyramids and the Great Wall of China existed.  Calling Death Valley and other hot, dry deserts in the Southwest U.S. home, Larrea tridentata or Shegoi as it is know by the Native Americans indeed knows something that we need to know about survival...and now a breakthrough in modern science has resulted in some unique new ways we can benefit from this amazing plant.

How does Larrea tridentata or "Shegoi" work?
Containing 18 identified flavone and flavonol aglycones, quercitin bioflavonoids, larreic acid, and two guaiuretic acid lignins, one of which is called NDGA (Nordihydroguaiaretic acid). NDGA has been the subject of numerous studies over several decades. It played a very important role as a food additive for its powerful antioxidant powers and was used to keep processed meat from becoming rancid. A role, now played by synthetic antioxidants such as BHT and BHA

Virastatin, the extract from Larrea-tridentata, works by inhibiting aerobic combustion in the mitochondria of cells. This slows down cellular processes, including replication of viruses and growth of bacteria. It is thought that this perpetual slow motion is why the plant lives for as long as it does. The resins excreted by the plant, also inhibit the growth of other species of plants in its immediate vicinity effectively competing for water and food resources in harsh desert climates. The patented processing methods used to produce Virastatin are specifically designed to eliminate the purported hepatotoxic compounds (liver toxins) identified with inferior products. 


Benzoic Acid

Benzoic acid, the simplest aromatic carboxylic acid containing carboxyl group bonded directly to benzene ring, is a white, crystalline organic compound; melting at 122 C (starting sublime at 100 C);  boiling at 249 C; slightly soluble in water, soluble in ethanol, very slightly soluble in benzene and acetone. Its aqua solution is weakly acidic. It occurs naturally in many plants and resins. Benzoic acid is also detected in animals. The most of commercial benzoic acid is produced by the reaction of toluene with oxygen at temperatures around 200 C in the liquid phase and in the presence of cobalt and manganese salts as catalysts. It can be prepared also by the oxidation of benzene with concentrated sulphuric acid or carbon dioxide in the presence of catalysts. Other methods are such as by the oxidation of benzyl alcohol, benzaldehyde, and cinnamic acid; by hydrolysis of benzonitrile, benzoyl chloride. More than 90% of commercial benzoic acid is converted directly to phenol and caprolactam. Its use in the production of glycol benzoates for the application of plasticizer in adhesive formulations is increasing. It is also used in the manufacture of alkyd resins and drilling mud additive for crude oil recovery applications. It is used as a rubber polymerization activators and retardants. Benzoic acid is converted to its salts and esters for the use of preservative application in foods, drugs and personal products. Sodium benzoate, sodium salt of benzoic acid, is used preferably as one of the principal anti-microbial preservatives used in foods and beverages (but its concentration is limited usually not exceeding 0.1% because it is poisonous), as it is about 200 times more soluble than benzoic acid. Sodium Benzoate is also used in medications, anti-fermentation additives and tabletting lubricant for pharmaceuticals. The industrial applications are as a corrosion inhibitor, as additive to automotive engine antifreeze coolants and in other waterborne systems, as nucleating agents for polyolefin, as a dye intermediate, as a stabilizer in photographic processing and as a catalyst. Wide range of benzoic esters are used as solvents, dying carrier, disinfectant additive, penetrating agent and pesticides and manufacturing other compounds.
