For more than 20 years, my dad and I have shared a common love of medicine and healing. For my dad, those exchanges showed him the latest scientific breakthroughs and new ways of thinking about and treating diseases. For me, those conversations revealed another world of options in promoting skin health from a natural and holistic standpoint.
In early 2012, I showed my dad a scientific publication that used Chinese herbs to successfully treat psoriatic patients who failed a number of conventional Western medical treatments. To my great surprise, my dad read the article and said “this is not a new treatment; we used those same herbs when I was practicing in China.”
What started for me as a curiosity to learn about the powerful healing properties of natural herbs quickly turned into an enjoyable collaboration with my dad. Together, we started a full scale research project. At first, we scoured worldwide medical and scientific literature to find suitable herbs with appropriate healing properties, and then we experimented with those herbs in the lab (rest assured, we did not conduct any tests on animals).
Finally, three years later, we created products formulated to soothe dry, itchy, cracked skin.
All along this journey of discovery, we received enormous amount of assistance from our friends and colleagues who provided scientific knowledge and technical expertise. In addition to opening their labs for us to conduct those valuable experiments, they provided advice, guidance, and encouragement. For all their unwavering support, we are very grateful for it. Thank you!
So this is our story, and these are our products to help people by improving their skin health. More importantly, we hope to be here to tell you the next chapter of our story. If you have something to share, please drop us a note and let us tell the story together!
We are healers at heart, and we strive to deliver effective, holistic, innovative, and compassionate care to our patients. The philosophy of Dr. Wang Herbal Skincare resonates from our core belief as physicians.
