Our unique founding story
Equilac was founded in 1999 on a Belgian horse farm by Bart Declerck. Starting with a mare’s milk farm at the age of 18, selling mare’s milk in its natural state, he quickly began seeking other ways to bring the benefits of mare’s milk to his customers in a way that was pleasant and easy to use. Because Bart’s mother was a pharmacist, Bart grew up in a scientific environment which gave him the insight he needed to develop his own mare’s milk supplement. Eventually, Equilac was launched as the world’s first dietary supplement based on concentrated mare’s milk.
Equilac around the world
Equilac Capsules have been sold at Belgian pharmacies and health food stores since 1999. But Bart had a greater vision and 1999 became a busy year in which Bart with his brother Wim launched the first website. That year, he got one online order from the United States, but it was a start as people all over the world began ordering his product, growing in number and continuing to do so today. Because mare’s milk production is very limited, Equilac is only available online straight from the Equilac family and cannot be found in pharmacies or stores.
