Outside of his work, Gordon Eberwein is passionate about travel. He is continuously heading off to his next destination and crossing places off of his bucket list. He enjoys the opportunity travel gives him to learn about new cultures and visit places with historical significance. Some of his travels have even inspired business ventures, namely Paris serving as the background for the creation of el Gordo’s Chili Oil.
Throughout the cafes in Paris, there are bottles of chili oil to season your meals with. He fell in love with the product and wanted to bring it back to Canada with him. Currently, his chili oil is only being produced in small batches, but he hopes to begin online sales in 2020, making it available to a much larger audience. Not only does chili oil add flavor to your meal, but it also comes with a surprising array of health benefits. El Gordo’s Chili Oil contains vitamins C, D, E, K and A. These help offer protection against strokes, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease and bone weakening, among other benefits. The oil also contains iron and protein, making it a perfect addition to every meal.
In addition to developing his chili oil brand, Gordon Eberwein also works as the CEO of Derm-Biome, Inc. This company is revolutionizing skincare by creating products that serve two functions: to beautify the skin and help heal skin diseases. The main ingredient is Betulinic Acid, a birch bark derivative that has been used in folk medicine for thousands of years.
