Do you know what is lymphedema?


Lymphedema is a chronic lymphatic disease that results in disfiguring swelling in one or more parts of the body, significantly reducing quality of life.

This occurs when the lymphatic vessels are damaged or compromised and lymph, the protein-rich body fluid transferred through the lymphatic vessels, accumulates in the tissue. It can be hereditary (Primary Lymphedema), which is rarer or more frequently it can occur after a surgical procedure, infection, radiation or other physical trauma (Secondary Lymphedema).  

In breast cancer, for example, it can appear in the arm on the same side as the cancer, after lymph nodes are removed from the armpit region for cancer staging or therapeutic treatment.

At IRÄYE, health is at the heart of our principle.


That's why we support this cause by donating 1% of our sales to the Lymphatic Education & Research Network during the month of March.

Its mission is to fight lymphatic diseases through education, research, and advocacy. They  seek to accelerate the prevention, treatments and cures for lymphedema, lipedema, lymphatic anomalies, and the continuum of lymphatic diseases.

The story of IRÄYE

While doing their research on lymphatic dermatology, Prof. Michael Detmar and Dr. Epameinondas Gousopoulos spent more than 10 years looking for solutions to activate the lymphatic system with natural ingredients and find solutions for lymphedema. That's how they discovered the Lymphactive™  Complex, which stimulates the lymphatic system's natural function by 250% and is in all IRÄYE products.

 This is how IRÄYE was born. While the Lymphactive™ Complex is not a pharmaceutical treatment, it has been the first time that natural activators of the lymphatic system were discovered and the first step towards sustainably supporting lymphatic health and function. 

 They remain dedicated to their patients, being committed to pursuing lymphedema research and pioneering future therapies.
