CelSana® is best described as a “product-driven company.”
The growth in skin care and anti-aging products has been nothing short of extraordinary. People are continuously searching for that elusive elixir of a youthful appearance. Our products represent more than a decade of research in botanical biotechnology including a 24 month collaboration with world-class Texas A&M University creating a Horticultural Science pedigree for the exotic Rain Forest Plant, Hamelia patens. The unique botanical plant extract possesses tremendous skin nourishing properties. USPTO issued a specific usage patent in 2014 for Hamelia patens’ botanical methodology in the area of chronic UV skin damage. CelSana® now takes advantage of this unparalleled opportunity to proudly present a new generation of cosmeceutical skin care products.
Our Founder, Dr. Don Wayne Berry
As is often the case with the great companies in American history, the inspiration for the innovation sometimes comes from the most unexpected of circumstances. For CelSana and Don Wayne Berry, M.D., retired Texas heart surgeon, the spark of innovation was the direct result of something dramatically simple. A neighbor provided Dr. Berry with a salve for his troubled skin and he put it on his hand. The results were dramatic. The M.D. discovery was so remarkable in fact that Dr. Berry devoted the next decade of his life to research, testing and providing for the commercialization of a product that is going to change the world of skin care.
