Golden Moor began in 1987. It was founded by Marc Saint-Onge (of Ottawa). Initially, Saint-Onge started the company in his home, using a washing machine to mix ingredients. After an extensive search of 63 bogs, Marc discovered a bog in Casselman, for which he has a 25-year contract for extraction rights.
The mud in our Canadian bog in Casselman holds a superior quality due to the high levels of humic acids. These humic acids aid in preventing arthritic and rheumatic pain and give the body a sense of well-being. Moor properties have been well known in Europe and Asia for sometime, but the ever increasing growth in population has created pollution and as a result their bogs have become affected. These countries must import moor to supply their demand. Today the demand for higher quality of life, the increase in stress and an aging population brings the birth of a new global approach to health care giving with more emphasis on natural treatments.
It is through that perspective that Golden Moor was founded in May of 1987, in the Outaouais region. As an Orthotherapist Marc Saint-Onge knows the virtues of moor since he has used it on his patients for many years. He has invested time in research and development to produce an efficient health product based on the therapeutic ingredients of the bog.
