How did we learn about the anti-aging skincare benefits of whole coffee cherry?

Coffee cherry handlers in the world’s tropical coffee growing regions, in spite of a harsh sun drenched environment, have unusually smooth, soft, younger skin on their hands and lower arms because of their exposure to the natural anti-aging benefits of coffee cherry fruit during picking and harvest. This led scientists to examine the components of the whole coffee cherry and the development of the world’s first and unique mycotoxin free whole coffee cherry extract – CoffeeBerry® extract.

Can I find CoffeeBerry® extract in other skincare lines?

What about other products appearing in the skincare market that contain CoffeeBerry® extract that are not licensed or referenced above?

If these products actually contain CoffeeBerry® extract then they are most likely infringing existing patents rights and should be reported us immediately. However, many of the CoffeeBerry® extract "look alikes" do not contain CoffeeBerry® extract at all!

For example, most of these contain Coffee bean (seed) extract- this is not the same Ingredient as PRIORI® CoffeeBerry® products. CoffeeBerry® extract is made from the entire Coffee fruit, the cherry- Coffee bean extract is made only from the seed ignoring the remaining 80% of the fruit! It's purely a marketing gimmick to confuse consumers at retail into thinking they are getting CoffeeBerry® extract.

Be careful, with all of the copycats - make sure you are getting the real thing - PRIORI® Bioengineered Skincare with CoffeeBerry® extract!

How can an Antioxidant like CoffeeBerry® extract CORRECT the signs of Aging?

Antioxidants are among the most popular anti-aging "cosmeceuticals" in the marketplace and have become the worldwide skincare anti-aging leaders. Plants have developed unique antioxidant cellular defenses against oxidative stress and aging because they are literally "stuck in the sun", lacking the mobility of animals to relocate to less toxic environmental stress when needed. The fruit of the coffee plant, or the coffee cherry as it is known, has developed extraordinary defenses against environmental stress, being cultivated in the warmer sun drenched equatorial regions of our planet, and has thus evolved superior antioxidant defense compounds. These super rich defense compounds are known as polyphenols and whole coffee cherry is loaded with the most potent mixture!

Has the effect of CoffeeBerry® extract been proven?

CoffeeBerry® extract has been extensively tested in clinical In-Vivo and cell biological In-Vitro studies to demonstrate its superior ability to defend and protect cells against oxidative stress and free radicals, the major cause of skin aging. More effective than green tea extract in all studies, it is not surprising that the clinical benefits in aging skin were dramatic and visible after only short periods of use.
