Meet the Founders:
L. Carl Robinson is the founder and Jhoane Robinson the co-founder of Cedar Bear Naturales. Carl is Cedar Bear's Chairman & C.E.O. and Jhoane is its Executive Vice President & CFO.
Carl is a clinical & formulary herbalist and nutritional therapist with an ancillary interest in biological agriculture.

Society of Lymphology. He is also a license qualified therapy technician, certified in conflict resolution (mediation), and a national & state certified hypnotherapist & hypnotherapy instructor. Carl is the originator and developer of the TincTract process for making totally alcohol-free liquid herbal and nutritional products, and was the lead developer of the Pureodine process for making alcohol-free glycerite of mono-element triiodide of nascent iodine, another industry first. He has been an 'industry insider' to the herbal products industry for 35 years and was involved in the passage of State legislation that became the template for the Federal government's Dietary Supplements Health Education Act of 1994 (1994 D.S.H.E.A.).
