Company founded by industry pioneer Roy Erickson offers expanded line of vitamin E products

ACGrace Celebrating 50 years of UNIQUE E Vitamin E ProductsBIG SANDY, TX (February 10, 2012) – From the seed of a fateful medical diagnosis five decades ago, an innovative company built on dedication to the purity found in nature has grown to become the leader in the vitamin E industry.

The A.C. Grace Company, makers of UNIQUE E® and other complementary vitamin E products, was founded in 1962 by Roy Erickson, a leading sales professional whose fast-paced career was abruptly interrupted at age 53 by not one…not two… but three heart attacks in the same year.

Handed what amounted to a death sentence by his doctors, Erickson applied the same determination and energy to finding a solution that he had applied to his sales career. The son of a physician, and a pharmaceutical representative with three years’ medical school training of his own, Erickson produced research that suggested the dietary benefits of vitamin E.

After formulating his own product, Erickson not only used it to supplement his own diet, but he established the A.C. Grace Company so that he could share it with others.

That product, UNIQUE E®, remains unparalleled in the vitamin E industry.

“Our product is the natural form of vitamin E, not the synthetic form found in many stores today,” said Scott Smith, Director Marketing/Operations. “We believe in purity.”

That natural form is obtained through the company’s proprietary processes that enable them to extract only pure vitamin E oil from natural sources.

From the beginning, Erickson sought to share his knowledge—and his product—with professionals in the medical field. Because of this, A.C. Grace is held in high esteem by physicians and other health practitioners around the world.

“For 50 years, A. C. Grace Company has been providing doctors and consumers with products that are the standard in the vitamin E industry,” said Smith. “Our multi-E scientists and doctors understand the synergy of ‘evidence-based science’ along with ‘application-based science’ for a powerful perspective in achieving maximum benefit through supplementation and topical application.”

In recent years, A.C. Grace has expanded its product line to include vitamin E supplements in alternate forms, along with skin creams, moisturizers and other products designed to provide natural benefits for supporting common physical health goals like cardiovascular wellness, healthy cellular membrane function and integrity, and many other aspects of whole health.

Roy Erickson lived 40 vigorous and energetic years after that fateful diagnosis in 1962, all of which were dedicated to sharing his knowledge and belief in the benefits of pure, natural vitamin E with the world.

A.C. Grace Company continues to share that mission and expand Roy’s vision “to consistently provide our customers with products that show promising benefits to the body when taken correctly, in the correct dosage and for the right reasons.”

A.C. Grace Company, located in Big Sandy, Texas, was founded by Roy Erickson in 1962. The company manufactures UNIQUE E®, the purest form of natural vitamin E available today, and a complete line of complementary vitamin E products. Complete information is available at
