Can I trust it when a skincare label says natural?
The truth is that many beauty products are advertised as natural or organic, when their ingredients are far from it. Many companies produce these so called natural products by adding a few herbal extracts to a synthetic “base” of polymers (plastic), Silicones, petroleum (and it’s derivatives), artificial fragrance and colors. Then they market the products, focusing on a few good ingredients, while “ignoring” the rest. Their hope is that the consumer will do the same. Reality is that over 80% of all beauty products available today are made with non natural ingredients. At ASTI Life, our ingredients are 100% natural.

What is the shelf life of the product?
Since Astilife products are 100% natural, we produce our products in small batches, so that they are as fresh as possible when you order them. We suggest that you never put your finger in the bottle, or “double dip” w/a Q-tip etc. If that is done, you will effectively transfer the bacteria from your hands into the product. Products normally have a shelf life of 16 months. After opening the product, it has a shelf life of approximately 12 months.
Has ASTI Life been tested on animals?
Astilife is 100% cruelty free; none of our ingredients were ever tested on animals.
How does ASTI Restore work?
ASTI Restore is the strongest of our formula. Our product works like this: Imagine fungus tentacles growing under your nail, when AstiRestore solution reaches the fungus, it “bites off” the tip of the fungus tenicles, which than prevent it from growing further into your nail. The fungus “tenicles” retract and the nail comes back “to life”, clean and healthy. However it is important to realize that nail fungus lives under your nail, not in your nail. Any remedy for nail fungus must either attack the fungus from inside, through your blood stream, or be able to penetrate your nail.
It is important you understand that, absent a prescription; killing the fungus is almost impossible. However, the good news is that the fungus is very sensitive to the environment in which it lives. If you are able to raise the acidic level of that environment, the fungus will cease to reproduce. Keeping the PH level high will let your new nail grow in, infection free. The old nail will over time be pushed out and cut off. Also, do remember that fungus reproduces by producing spores. The spores can lay dormant for long periods of time before starting to grow. Remember: Always complete the entire treatment. Stopping treatment too soon can leave you with having a brand new infection starting up. Another thing, There are no toxic or unsafe ingredients in ASTI Restore!
