Ascension’s philosophy is deeply rooted in spiritual and physical wellness. Our belief is that using plant based ingredients can help us achieve a healthier lifestyle.
Being that our products are made with raw, high quality ingredients and are intended for internal and external use, we strive to provide inner and outer beauty through an holistic approach.
Founder Max Hemphill launched Ascension in 2018. The idea for creating a wellness company came after a trip to the Dominican Republic. During his visit, Max contracted a parasite. After weeks of trying cleanses and antibiotics, with no results, Max finally tried Diatomaceous Earth. D.E. is a fossilized algae that has a negative electric charge, and removes toxins, parasites and other chemicals with its highly absorbent nature. Just three days after ingesting the powder, Max was parasite free. For him, this was a major wakeup call.
He then realized that if he wanted to heal his body, he needed to change his lifestyle. Having recently become a vegan, he thought about all of the products he was using both externally & internally that were filled with chemicals and other harmful ingredients. So using D.E. as the foundation, he began his vision of what the Beauty/Wellness industry should look like.
Ascension's mission is to offer the highest quality, least processed, and plant-based products. Ascension is dedicated to creating awareness of the use of organic and natural products instead of harmful contaminants. We also believe companies, like individuals, must assume their share of responsibility as tenants of the Earth. We’ve been an advocate and a supporter of the eco-friendly movement, including the use of recycled products for packaging, since inception.
