- About Us
Celebrating 28 yearS!
Empirical Labs is a full service nutraceutical manufacturing facility located in Fort Collins, CO at the foot of the Rocky Mountains.
We are strong in Liposomal products including stock products, private label and custom formulation. We also specialize in capsules, powders, and liquids.
In 1989, Herbalists Kelly and Nazreen Goyen founded Empirical Labs. As natural health enthusiasts they used their own experiences in healing to help shape Empirical Labs. Their consistent purpose to provide high quality nutraceutical products quickly earned them a reputation for effective formulations made with exceptional quality herbs, extracts, vitamins and minerals.
Empirical Labs is managed by Certified Clinical Herbalist, Asa Waldstein CCH, an American Herbalist Guild member and honors graduate of The Rocky Mountain Center for Botanical Studies (Paul Bergner/Feather Jones). Asa possesses extensive herbal wildcrafting and formulation knowledge and has over 15 years managing experience in the natural products industry.
Since 2015 we continue to enjoy working with Dr. Kenneth Proefrock NMD, a well-known educator, leading edge clinician and biochemist. His experience with liposomes predates ours. We sold our first vitamin C liposomal in 2009. Dr. Proefrock was producing injectable and oral liposomes back in 2006. Dr Proefrock has helped us create the next generation of liposomes, which we refer to as the Qualisome™ line. Qualisome™ technology is 100% owned by Empirical Labs and is not licensed from any other company.
Our team can turn your liposomal, capsule, powder, or liquid idea into a workable product with reasonable minimums and competitive pricing. Our custom formulation minimums start at 1000 units and private label at just 100 bottles.
