Foster's Lab



Thomas Gilman (T.G.) Foster, Anthony’s great-great-grandfather, founded the Foster’s brand in 1895. The brand opened as a general convenient store quickly developing into a local chain spread throughout the Midwest. Over the years the Foster's brand grew to multiple locations. After many successful years of business the family had to make the hard decision to close the chain of stores. Now, with the help of Thomas and Anthony the Foster's name will live on.



We are a team founded by uncle & nephew, Thomas Siebenaler and Anthony Shook. The two have always battled with troublesome skin themselves. After trying many products that just didn't work they set out to make a skincare product of their own. They soon realized that they had created an amazing serum that they wanted to be able to share with others. After one holiday weekend in their home town they decided to team up together and revitalize their family's brand name, and Foster's Lab was born. What was once a family owned chain of stores in the Midwest is now an innovative skincare brand that is solving skincare issues for a hyper-connected world.

Our values

We are a family owned brand to the core. We take a real sense of pride in what our family name represents. We promise to bring honest products that have real value to everyone. That is something that has been instilled in us from our midwest roots. We treat everyone as if they are a part of our family, and we love that our family is growing bigger and bigger everyday.


Co-founder & Lead Chemist, Thomas Siebenaler is a highly skilled Quality and Compliance professional with more than 27 years of experience in the pharmaceutical/FDA-regulated industry. During his career, Thomas worked with many prescription and over-the-counter treatments for acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, and skin blemishes, including cleansers, lotions, ointments, gels, creams, shampoos, and pads.  

He aspired to develop and offer advanced, high-quality products to people who have yet to find their perfect skincare solutions. Together with his nephew, Thomas is proud to deliver a skincare line that promises to do just that. He feels fortunate he can bring his experience, knowledge and excitement to a new generation and begin this new chapter in the Fosters’ family name.


Co-founder, Anthony Shook has many years of entrepreneurial experience under his belt, and decided it was time to make another dream come true.  Initially, his uncle and himself brainstormed and created skincare products as a personal solution for themselves. The two decided to create their own remedy to protect against skin damage caused by blue light exposure from modern technology. In developing the products, the duo knew others could benefit from their work, and the Foster’s Lab brand was born.
