While in the hot, arid climate of Arizona, Dr. Moe quietly observed that most of his friends and acquaintances had dry, damaged, and prematurely aged skin on their face, neck, hands, arms, ankles, and feet. Scratching and sun exposure worsened the deterioration, a trend that continued as people got older. Additionally, Dr. Moe noticed that the less natural melanin produced in skin, the more susceptible it was to the damaging effects of the sun’s rays. Using his knowledge of and experience with natural products, Dr. Moe was inspired to formulate an emulsion capable of dramatically slowing skin deterioration and aging. The product he created has been so effective and well received that Dr. Moe began dreaming of making the formulation more widely available to help people maintain skin health.
Through his business partners, Dr. Moe found the necessary marketing and operations expertise and the decision was made to form Solgesic, a woman and minority-owned business, and launch of the BEOGEN® line of all-natural skincare products.
