Far Infrared Light (FIR) - read more

Infrared light is a type of electromagnetic radiation emitted by the sun; far infrared light has a wavelength greater than 4 microns. Despite the fact that we cannot see far infrared radiation, it is perceived by thermoreceptors in the skin as heat. Studies have shown that FIR light therapy can stimulate wound healing mechanisms in the skin. Its additional benefits include the following: 1) Skin is warmed, unclogging pores and expanding capillaries. 2) Blood flow increases, helping eliminate toxins associated with aging and fatigue. 3) Mitochondrial stimulation results in increased enzyme activity and metabolism. 4) Promotes the breakdown of cellulite, fat, trapped water, and wastes. 5) Promotes the regeneration of skin tissue. 6) Increases oxygen and nutrient delivery to cells resulting in increased skin vitality. FIR light therapy is one of the 4 functions provided by Apriori Beauty’s Derma Firm Illuminator.

Female Ginseng - read more

Angelica polymorpha sinensis is a well known and studied herb that has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. It has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antispasmodic and wound healing effects due to the plant’s high level of phytochemicals, which include coumarins, phytosterols, polysaccharides, ferulate, and flavonoids. It is well known for its use in treating female ailments, and is commonly known as female ginseng or dong quai.

Film Forming Agent - read more

Film formers are ingredients that help a product form a continuous, even layer over the surface to which they are applied.

Flavonoid - read more

Flavonoids are naturally occurring, polyphenolic substances responsible for the vivid red, orange, yellow, and blue color of many plants. In addition to their role as pigments, flavonoids protect plants from herbivory, and have antioxidant, antimicrobial, and photoreceptive functions. Flavonoids are an important component of the human diet, where they are recognized for their potent antioxidant capabilities. Research suggests that flavonoids are a major reason why diets high in fruits and vegetables are associated with a reduction in the occurrence of degenerative diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and mascular dystrophy.

Fragrance - read more

An ingredient or blend of ingredients that add a pleasant scent to cosmetics formulations. Many fragrance blends contain harmful or sensitizing ingredients. Apriori Beauty uses essential oils and other natural ingredients — rather than toxic, synthetic frangrance ingredients — to create appealing scents. Slight differences in scent between product batches may occur due to natural differences between these ingredients.

Free Radical - read more

Reactive oxygen species (ROS), including free radicals, are reactive molecules that contain oxygen. ROS are constantly generated as a byproduct of cellular respiration, the process by which cells produce energy. To minimize the negative effects of ROS on the body, cells possess natural antioxidant defense systems; oxidative stress occurs when natural antioxidant defenses are overwhelmed by exposure to factors that generate excess ROS. These factors include pollution, UV radiation, poor dietary choices, and toxic ingredients found in certain cosmetics products and drugs. The negative effects of ROS overproduction are well documented — damage to DNA, lipids, and proteins, inflammation, and degenerative disease — and overwhelming evidence suggests that the accumulation of cellular damage from ROS is a major cause of aging. Apriori Beauty utilizes several potent antioxidants, internally and externally, to reduce the effects of oxidative stress and encourage cells to function in a healthier manner.

Free Radical Theory of Aging - read more

A theory used to explain the aging process, in which cellular damage caused by reactive oxygen species is considered key in determining lifespan. The free radical theory of aging proposes that reactive oxygen species generated through respiration cause cellular damage that accumulates and degrades cellular function over time. Increased exposure to reactive oxygen species from solar radiation, pollution, and poor dietary choices increases the rate of cellular damage.
