Message from Original Founder, Jerry Pope

Hello everyone...

I am very pleased you found your way to Source Vitàl. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than introducing people to the most natural, effective, and healthful products manufactured in the world today. Try them and I know you will agree.

Jerry Pope, Original Source Vital Founder

Over twenty two years ago, I embarked on a mission to create a product line. The idea was to offer truly natural products to the world as an alternative to the petrochemical and pharmaceutical products that consume the vast majority of our market. It is the same now as it was then.

Put simply I believe: That whole foods, whole plant extracts, pure essential oils, algae and seaweeds, and purified water, are good! The less heat and processing the better. That petrochemical distillates, pharmaceuticals, synthetic fragrances, synthetic preservatives, synthetic colorants, and animal products are not good.

Molecules that we breathe, swallow, and absorb through the skin affect our health. If you want good health and to radiate beauty you must minimize the unhealthy molecules entering your body. You must detoxify those toxins from your body regularly.

A product can be no better than its components. With that thought, I personally select each ingredient used in the making of our product. Many man hours of study have gone into each one before we use it. Each essential oil, botanical extract, algae, seaweed, and salt is researched and tested before it is chosen. I have traveled to many countries and sampled many ingredients to end up with what we have today. Our products are effective because of these wonderful ingredients, blended into intelligent formulas designed to get results. Our products are active, you will feel and see them work. The search for the best ingredients is never ending. Our line will continue to evolve, and as long as I run Source Vital, I promise to never stop working to make a better product line.

I invite you to try our healthful products and see for yourself. We have many to chose from. I truly believe you will love them! When you do please share it with your friends, family, and coworkers. You will also enjoy our caring staff and commitment to great customer service. Thank you again for your interest in Source Vitàl!

Jerry L. Pope Bio

JERRY POPE was original founder, owner and CEO of SOURCE VITAL, LLC. Jerry’s twenty seven years of experience started as co-owner (with partner Brea Gratia) of one of America’s first Day Spas, Sanctuary d’ Sante in Houston, Texas founded in 1984. He opened Source Vital (1989) and College of Holistic Studies (1990). Beyond his duties as CEO he headed up all new product development and formulations. He was an international spokesperson, skin and spa equipment specialist, and a spa consultant in all areas of operations. Jerry's vision for his companies was to offer truly natural products of botanical origin versus products that are manufactured through traditional cosmetic and pharmaceutical chemistry methodology. In other words, Jerry refused to add petrochemical distillates, synthetic colorants, synthetic preservatives, synthetic fragrances or animal ingredients to his products. A significant percentage of Jerry’s time was devoted to Research and Development and traveling the world to locate the best quality ingredients to use in his products - a practice the company continues to this day. “It all starts in the farmlands, forests, jungles, deserts, mountains, lakes and oceans of our amazing planet” he said. Jerry passed away on Monday September 17th, 2012.
