What is Celliant®?
All Draper Therapies products contain Celliant®, the world’s most technologically advanced fiber. Celliant is a proprietary blend of minerals which have been extruded into a polyester fiber.
Celliant is based on three fundamental scientific principles:
- Your body emits heat;
- Certain naturally-occurring minerals absorb heat and emit far infrared energy (IR); and
- IR is a vasodilator that delivers health benefits by increasing blood flow to tissue and muscles throughout the body, which delivers vital nutrients and oxygen to the cells.
The full-spectrum infrared light promotes improved local circulation, making more tissue oxygen available to your cells—an average increase of 7%, and up to 8.4% in a clinical trial.*

Celliant is made of a patented blend of thermo-reactive minerals infused into the core of fiber which is used to create all types of textiles and fabrics so it does not wash or wear out. It is used in a diverse range of textiles and products made by brands about the world – apparel, bedding, medical, wetsuits, veterinary products and more. The applications are limitless.
Products made with Celliant fabrics absorb and convert body heat, naturally emitted by all living things, in the form of far infrared energy (IR). This energy is recycled back into skin and tissue in a safe, natural way, helping to rebuild and recharge the human body after physical activity and while you sleep.
Hologenix, inventors of Celliant, formed the Science Advisory Board in 2011 to further establish itself as the leader in responsive textiles. Hologenix works in partnership with the Board to identify, design and execute rigorous clinical studies to further validate and substantiate the benefits in the field of infrared technology.
To date, a Science Advisory Board, composed of experts in the fields of photo-biology, nanotechnology, sleep medicine, and diabetes and wound care, has overseen 11 clinical, pre-clinical, technical and physical trials, and 8 peer-reviewed published studies that demonstrate Celliant’s effectiveness and the benefits of infrared energy.
Celliant’s commitment to quality and consistency is validated by the rigorous testing products undergo, including ash, emissivity, hyperspectral imaging and TcP02 testing.

Products containing Celliant have no adverse effects as they work directly with the body to enable it to be more effective and as such can be used continually. Celliant is NOT a coating. As such, it never washes out of the fabric. The fiber is also non-toxic and biologically benign. It works with the body to help it do what it does naturally. All Draper Therapies products are made in the USA.
Celliant is also designated as a Class 1 Medical Device in Canada, the European Union, Australia, New Zealand with more regions to follow.
CELLIANT® is backed by science. It starts with their own Science Advisory Board that oversees the development and execution of the clinical research.
The FDA determined products containing CELLIANT® are medical devices
because they are intended to temporarily increase blood flow and local circulation
at the site of application in healthy individuals.
As part of the 513(g) submission process, the FDA reviewed and commented
on appropriate health and wellness claims for CELLIANT products.
The FDA has determined that CELLIANT® products
are medical devices as defined in section 201(h) of the
Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and are general wellness products.
The FDA has not approved or designated CELLIANT® products for
any purpose and has not made any determination about,
or endorsement of, its stated use or benefits.
