Source Vitál Apothecary, a body care company that uses formulations that combine seaweeds, botanicals, and 100 percent pure essential oils, is pleased to announce it has partnered with Nutritional Products International to expand its distribution in the US Marketplace.

Based on the company’s naturopathic approach, Source Vitál Apothecary combines the highest quality seaweed, plant extracts, and pure essential oils to formulate extraordinary skin care, body care and aromatherapy products. Source Vitál products are handcrafted in small batches to ensure freshness and effectiveness. The company’s botanical-based line feeds the skin the nutritional elements it needs to reduce the visual signs of aging.

“There is a stronger focus today than ever before on using natural products that are good for the world, and we have developed a brand that manages to be effective and environmentally friendly while far exceeding quality expectations. Our active ingredients are what separate us from other brands. Our lines boast active ingredient percentages of 35-91 percent, while most companies only have 5-10 percent” said Paul Colgin, CEO of Source Vitál Apothecary.

Jerry Pope, and his wife Brea started the business as The Preferred Source, back in 1989. Brea had started the first day spa in Texas back in 1984 and was really unhappy with product lines that were available in the market for her services. Because she could not find a line she felt was both effective and natural, Jerry quit his job as a metal salesman and they began making their own line. They were looking to create a line that was not only active and effective for clients, but also completely natural and plant based. They started in making products in a back bedroom at their house on May 3, 1989 (also Jerry’s birthday).

Back in the early development days Jerry traveled the globe to source a lot of ingredients. Salts for products are from the Dead Sea, seaweeds are from the Brittany Coast of France, essential oils are from all over the world and lavender from fields in France. All quality-tested ingredients are brought to the manufacturing facility in Houston and blended and created.

The company rebranded as Source Vitál Apothecary in 1993 and continued to develop seaweed, botanical and essential oil based products. Jerry passed away in 2012 but it is still family run and committed to the same quality, natural ingredients the company was founded to provide. That combination is the key to the active and effective nature of our products.

“As my uncle did, we continue to be a small family run business. I have six family members working here. They handle product development, production, and marketing and sales. Having such loyal and engaged employees helps our strategy of being a modern apothecary brand that hand-makes our products in small batches to ensure freshness,” Colgin said.

Source Vitál Apothecary was present at ECRM event in Tampa represented by Nutritional Products International. To find out more visit the company website,
