Element Apothec Logo

Element Apothec, a purpose-driven, phytocannabinoid-infused clean beauty and wellness brand, today announced that it has become a Pending Certified Benefit Corporation. A major milestone in Element Apothec’s efforts to reshape the consumer experience for phytocannabinoid-infused products with added transparency and social responsibility, becoming a B Corp solidifies the onus on the brand to ensure all operations and product manufacturing considers the impact on employees, customers, suppliers, communities and the environment.

“The Element Apothec brand was established with one mission, to help people lead better, healthier lives,” said Davina Kaonohi, CEO of Element Apothec. “As a certified B Corp, and through our diligence to ensure that all products we create earn the industry’s most respected product certifications, customers can truly feel good about our products – which is what our brand is all about.”

Reinforcing the brand’s dedication to formulating clean, cruelty-free products that contain the highest-quality ingredients, the brand has received additional certifications, including:

  • ClearForMe – Validates that all product ingredients are clean, cruelty-free and vegan, through their comprehensive ingredient database (over 180,000 and counting).
  • CERTClean – Certifies that products are free from harmful ingredients that may pose risk to individuals including preservatives, parabens, sulfates and many others.
  • Leaping Bunny Program – Internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo on branding and packaging ensures that no animal testing was used in the development of the product.

Solidifying the brand’s promise of offering only the highest-quality ingredients with total transparency, it has teamed up with TagOne to give consumers instant access to the seed-to-sale path for all of its natural ingredients.

Doubling down on the brand’s commitment to social responsibility, it is also part of the 1% For the Planet movement – an international organization whose members contribute at least one percent of annual sales to environmental causes.

Element Apothec products will be available to customers in Q4 2020. Additionally, the company has started a WeFunder campaign to raise funds to begin mass production of its introductory product line, and further bolster product development.

VetCell Therapeutics USA Opens Enrollment for DentaHeal Feline Chronic Gingivostomatitis Clinical Trial

VetCell Therapeutics USA Opens Enrollment for DentaHeal Feline Chronic Gingivostomatitis Clinical Trial

Collaborating Veterinary Clinical Sites Will Provide DentaHeal Investigational Stem Cell Product to Enrolled Patients at No Cost


VetCell Therapeutics USA™, a clinical-stage, pet-focused cell therapy provider, announced today that it has entered the enrollment phase of its DentaHeal™ clinical trial. The company also announced the first four clinical sites authorized to qualify and treat FCGS patients with its DentaHeal investigational stem cell therapy. VetCell Therapeutics USA will cover the cost of its DentaHeal product for all enrolled patients.


This news builds upon last month’s announcement of VetCell Therapeutics USA beginning a multi-centered, country-wide clinical trial to evaluate the safety, efficacy and potency of DentaHeal for the control of clinical signs related to feline chronic gingivostomatitis (FCGS).


“With the expert counsel from our partners at UC Davis, we have entered the patient enrollment stage of our DentaHeal clinical trial and are pleased to announce our first collaborating clinics,” said Dr. Chad Maki, DVM, chief veterinary medical officer at VetCell Therapeutics USA. “FCGS is an awful, painful, and deadly disease that today has no cure. We firmly believe that DentaHeal can correct the cause of FCGS, allowing cats to lead happy and healthy lives and are incredibly thankful for all of the clinics reaching out to join our fight against this disease.”


VetCell Therapeutics USA plans to cover several major metropolitan areas of the United States, with clinical sites being added to the trial regularly. The first DentaHeal clinical sites to sign up include:

DentaHeal is an allogeneic, adipose-derived, mesenchymal stem cell treatment for FCGS. With this clinical trial, any cat with FCGS that has not responded to standard treatment options can be enrolled into this clinical trial.


According to published data, approximately 30 percent of FCGS patients do not respond to standard treatments and require life-long pain medication, antibiotics and immunosuppressive drugs. Sadly, the cats that do not improve, even with implementation of improved dental hygiene, medication, and oral surgery, are often euthanized.


For pet owners with cats diagnosed with FCGS, please read our blog post titled, ‘What To Do if My Cat Has Been Diagnosed with FCGS,’ to learn more about FCGS, stem cells and VetCell Therapeutics USA’s DentaHeal clinical trial.


Veterinarians with patients suffering from FCGS whom are interested in enrolling their patient in the DentaHeal clinical trial are encouraged to contact the above four mentioned clinics for consultation. Interested veterinarians also may reach out to VetCell Therapeutics USA via email at FCGSTrial@vetcelltherapeuticsusa.com, or fill by filling out the contact form at www.vetcelltherapeuticsusa.com/FCGS_Trial.
