Conceptualized in 2017 and founded in 2019, Aprisa® Inc. develops uniquely formulated, scientifically based skincare cosmetics focused on minimizing the appearance of dark circles, puffy eyes, fine lines, wrinkles and scarred skin, while nourishing and moisturizing the skin. Throughout our development, we have performed extensive research and tested our products with physician's offices and professional clinical control groups to deliver the greatest possible product to our customers, friends and neighbors. Our clinical results speak for themselves, our products work.
Our founders had two specific skincare concerns that led to the creation of Aprisa® - one focused on minimizing the appearance of the scars, and the other on creating skincare products that would not aggravate autoimmune diseases or cause allergic reactions. We have accomplished these goals and continue to work on developing and expanding our product line to meet the needs of our Aprisa® family.
At Aprisa®, our background and extensive experience in the pharmacy, food and personal care industries sets us apart in the cosmetics realm. We believe one of the most important elements of developing any cosmetic product is a thorough and concise quality and regulatory management system. With that belief, we developed a robust, state of the art digital quality control program that encompasses the core of the cosmetics industry.
As a pharmacist in the medical field since 1995, I was determined to find an answer as to why I would continually have unexplained reactions to skincare products, foods, and environmental triggers. After several years of frustration, I was finally tested for and correctly diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, Hashimoto’s. Whenever I tried and applied new skincare products, I would experience side effects including scaly rashes on my face and neck, puffy face from inflammatory process, and isolated skin breakouts.
Once I identified Hashimoto’s Disease as the precursor to my increased skin sensitivities, I decided to use my vast knowledge of pharmacology, pharmaceutical compounding and my ability as a pharmacist to source high quality ingredients with proven clinical effectiveness. Determined to create products that I could use without fear of an autoimmune reaction, I would literally test potential ingredients on my own skin to see if I had a reaction prior to moving forward with any formula!
Hashimoto’s Disease and other autoimmune diseases can trigger reactions to “natural” products, as well, so there is a balance in carefully selecting and formulating with conscientious process in the selection of synthetic ingredients as well as high-quality natural ingredients that have minimal to no fragrance.
All of Aprisa’s products have been tested personally on me - aka the human guinea pig. I love the proven clinical results on my own skin, but even more, I love the proven clinical results on my own skin, but even more, I love not having to worry about autoimmune reactions from my skincare products.
Lisa’s son was a victim of a hit-and-run auto accident that left a profound scar on his forehead. As a mom, her natural instinct was to fix his injury. In doing so, she tried just about every product on the market. Nothing seemed to make a difference. Armed with frustration, determination, and a fierce desire to create a product that actually works, Aprisa Erase® Gel was born.
