FORT LEE, N.J. – Over 60 million people in the U.S. have acne, and contrary to popular belief, it’s not a condition that only affects teenagers: In fact, the average age of people with acne is 26.5 (5 more than just a decade ago!). Acne is a skin condition, but it leaves psychological scars. It is commonly treated with topical agents and antibiotics, both of which can result is serious side effects. Now people fighting acne have a new weapon in their arsenal: Herborium Group, Inc., a publicly traded Botanical Therapeutics® company, offers all-botanical ingredients based, clinically tested AcnEase® tablets that have achieved up to a 95% response rate in the treatment of acne and improving symptoms of Rosacea.
Western medical science
has revolutionized the treatment of diseases worldwide, offering a science-based,
clinically tested approach and enabling patients to routinely manage diseases
that used to be considered a death sentence. But centuries before Anthony
Leeuwenhoek spotted bacteria through a microscope, traditional communities in
Asia, South America, Africa and elsewhere were using herbal compounds to
provide relief for medical conditions and promote wellness. Dr. Agnes P.
Olszewski, a U.S. citizen who grew up in Europe and gained extensive experience
with traditional medicine as a business consultant in Asia, is in a unique
position to appreciate the benefits of a blended approach to wellness that
draws on the wisdom of both modern and ancient traditions. That’s what led her
to found Herborium Group (HBRM), a publicly traded Botanical Therapeutics®
company, in 2006.
With both a
PhD and an MBA, Dr. Olszewski developed her passion for providing all-natural
alternatives and complementary botanical ingredients-based therapies that blend
science and nature during a 20-year strategic management and consulting career that
included extensive work in the development and marketing of consumer products,
including botanical medicines, beauty and health supplements and nutrition
products in the U.S., Europe and China. Her experience includes work on a
high-profile biotechnology joint venture in China, where she cultivated
relationships with key Chinese business and government officials. Dr. Olszewski
also served as Director of the Institute for International Business at Seton
Hall University and as Professor of Marketing and International Business prior
to founding Herborium.
Herborium Group, Dr. Olszewski and her team have focused on developing products
that combine the best Western and traditional medicine have to offer, meeting
unmet wellness needs in the U.S. and Europe. Leveraging the treasure trove of
traditional medicines that have been proven effective over the centuries and
applying modern scientific standards in development and testing, Herborium
currently offers a range of Botanical Therapeutics® that address a variety of
conditions, including acne and the controlling symptoms of rosacea, men’s and
women’s sexual health, energy issues and symptoms of BPH (benign prostate
products are a primary focus: The company’s flagship product, AcnEase®, treats
the root cause of acne – an overproduction of sebum (skin oil) by sebaceous
glands, which leads to localized inflammation and scarring – instead of just
the symptoms. AcnEase® tablets, a proprietary herbal compound that restores
balance and skin health, is up to 95% effective in treating acne and the
controlling symptoms of rosacea and works for people who suffer from acne of
any type at any age, regardless of skin color and complexion.
to developing botanical-based medicinal products, Dr. Olszewski is also
passionate about educating the public about the benefits – and potential
drawbacks – of natural medicines. She is a member of the GLG Council and a
frequent speaker on the topics of natural remedies, wellness, nutraceutical
products and global marketing strategies. Find out more about Dr. Olszewski and

We develop and market botanical therapeutics ® that represent a new category of medicinal products based on all natural, herbal ingredients, and focused on treatment and prevention of health concerns that are not satisfactorily addressed by Western medicine.
Our herbal medicines have been clinically tested and proven to be safe and efficacious. We develop our botanical therapeutics by identifying natural cures with experiential or scientific support data and subsequently use clinical studies to confirm their utility and safety.
Finally we supply these products to our customers in user-friendly formulations and support each product with information necessary to understand both the disease and our products' approach to treatment. We use our decades of experience in China to identify medicinal candidates developed in China using the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) supported by thousands of years of medical history. The second step involves applying rigorous Western science qualifications and testing procedures to transform these TCMs into the highest quality botanical therapeutics available. We manufacture our products in the US to the highest standards for botanical drugs. Our products do not contain any chemicals or Western drugs, only all natural ingredients.
We're focused on creating an organization where our staff and collaborators, including research scientists, clinicians, partners, and associates form a complimentary Team of experts in their fields.
The individual strengths and commitment of our Team members provide the highest core competencies in their respective field of endeavor and this unique combination of skill sets make us a "one of a kind" leader in the field of Botanical Therapeutics.
Our identity comes from the pursuit of excellence - our organization's purpose and adherence to our values. As a company we are focused on delivering to our customers the most efficacious, and safe herbal medicines that address their medical needs. It is this unique blend and combination of expertise and products that sets us apart from nutraceutical (definition) companies. It is our commitment to the best products with the best supporting content for our customers that establish our unique identity.
Our key value - Provide our customers with the best alternative choice in meeting their healthcare needs. We strive to make a difference through our commitment to excellence and passion in developing medicinal alternatives based on science, education, integrity and personal compassion. These are not only ideals to which we aspire; they are standards for action and requirements for our behavior.
Our values guide the way we conduct business and are the basis for every decision we make. Excellence is one of our values. Our approach is rigorous, focused and creative. We expect to succeed only if our clients are satisfied. We hold ourselves to the highest standards and remain true to our values.
We commit to provide the best-of-breed solutions and treatments using available research and clinical experience that offer new opportunities in all natural herbal-based medicine.
We recognize that a community's collective intelligence and capabilities surpass not only the intelligence and power of each individual but also the sum of the individuals' competencies. Our goal is to share that communal knowledge wherever possible to a mutual company-client benefit.
