The Creation of HTY Gold
I am Patricia Kopas, co-founder of Pacific Specialty Oils, Inc., and co-creator of HTY Gold. I am 80 years old and married to George Kopas, a master chemist, who has worked with oils for over 50 years. I want to share with you the creation of HTY Gold.
I was born with a skin condition that required radiation and skin grafting. This condition made me acutely aware of the importance of having beautiful, youthful looking skin. Because of my condition, I had always sought the help of skin care creams and experts all my life. Around the age of 68, I noticed that in spite of all of my efforts, my skin was becoming dry, wrinkled and crepe paper like, even though I had always used the best skin care products on the market. These creams all said that with consistent use my skin would always look youthful, and it didn’t. I realized, with great disappointment, that these greatly advertised products had failed me. I became depressed because I knew that women with dry, wrinkled, crepe paper skin become invisible in today’s youth oriented society. I knew that if I couldn’t find a way to revitalize my aging appearance I would become another one of the millions of older looking women that no one looked at. I decided I was not going to give in to this aging skin problem.
I went to my husband George and asked him if there was anything he could do about my skin problem, since he was a chemist and knew the workings of the human body. Because of George’s knowledge of oils, he knew that the creams I had been using all my life were not the answer to my problem of aging skin. In fact, he actually laughed when he looked at the ingredients. “Why would anybody think that these creams would work against aging skin? Look at the ingredients they are made with chemicals, water and preservatives. The water in these creams evaporate off of your skin and leave you with chemicals that can actually harm your skin. These creams are never going to conquer the aging of human skin or any other kind of skin for that matter. The reason skin dries up and wrinkles, is because as we age, our bodies reduce the production of the oils that keep our skin young and moist. Dry wrinkled crepe paper skin is caused by our body’s inability to keep producing the equivalent amounts of oil we had in our youth.”
I was astounded at George’s frank answers. I said, “O.K. George put your money where your mouth is. Make my skin look young again.”
After 4 years of dedicated research, worldwide searches and extensive testing, he succeeded!
