Company History

Dr. Harry W. Diehl (1910-1999) of the National Institutes of Health was spurred toward studies into substances that might alleviate pain due to his concern over a neighbor’s disability.  Dr. Diehl discovered Cetyl Myristoleate after finding this material was uniquely present in some mice species, male beavers, and sperm whales.  He received a U.S. patent on CMO in 1977 (U.S. Patent #4,049,824).  Despite ownership of this patent, Mr. Diehl was unfamiliar with the marketing of natural products, and CMO remained unknown to users of natural products for many years.  In 1993 Dr. Diehl’s daughter started making a dietary supplement from CMO.  Botanoceuticals was started in 2000 as a supplier of CMO to the Diehl family and to other dietary supplement manufacturers.  Botanoceuticals’ exclusive specialization in CMO since its establishment brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the production of the highest quality CMO.
