"Through years of research and treating my patients, I found that repairing the skin barrier and blocking chronic inflammation in the skin had the most profound effect in my patients."

Dr. Carl R. ThornfeldtDr. Carl R. Thornfeldt is the CEO and Founder of Episciences, Inc.

Along with these accomplishments, he has also spent nearly two decades focusing on researching the skin barrier and cutaneous inflammatory conditions.

“I know there are many compelling theories about skin. Through years of research and treating my patients, I found by repairing the barrier and blocking chronic inflammation had the most profound effect on aging and skin health in my patients. I have spent a lifetime on proving the safety and efficacy of our product.

As a physician, I knew my peers would want evidence and in my practice, I use prescription products to clear conditions, but then I use Epionce products to block inflammation and rebuild the skin barrier in order to maintain a longer remission period.”

Dr. Thornfeldt received his M.D. from the Oregon Health Sciences University. Soon after, he spent three years in family practice for the U.S. Navy, and completed his dermatology residency at University Hospital, San Diego, California. While running his private practice and conducting research, Dr. Thornfeldt has co-founded and held the position of CEO at several privately and publicly held companies.

In the winter of 2010 his first full-length textbook was released.
