Founder, President, CEO
Epilobium, Inc. was first envisioned in 2005 by the company’s founder, Robert Jacquet, when he discovered the herb Epilobium was effective in treating several ailments and health conditions that effect the aging community. Mr. Jacquet created and managed the nation’s first medical spa at Murrieta Hot Springs in California where he came to appreciate the many ways traditional spa treatments could enhance an older patient’s recovery process. Even more significantly, he saw how health-enhancing natural products could often replace certain pharmaceutical drugs which often had serious side effects.
This epiphany prompted him to actively explore health and cosmetic ingredients with the idea of creating a new line of spa products focused on helping the ageing population of the US. His research led him to become associated with the innovative creator and visionary herbalist, Rafael Vasquez, who is internationally recognized as a leader in natural medicine. He suggested Epilobium as an active herb that would help solve these and related health problems. Consequently, since 2005, Robert and his team have been studying and experimenting with the Epilobium plant. After successfully extracting active ingredients from the plant, he launched the Company providing commercial marketing and product development directed to both the Nutraceutical and Medical Food markets.
Robert Jacquet has more than 35 years of experience as a successful entrepreneur in a variety of industries. Prior to entering the wellness industry and becoming involved with researching the Epilobium plant and building his company, Epilobium experience in the business development business.
Later, he created a natural product for hair growth called All Herbal Hair and in the process discovered the Epilobium plant/herb, which has led to the formation of Epilobium, Inc.
