Our founder and president, Janice Parks, became interested in making natural handmade body care products over 10 years ago and began researching natural ingredients and experimenting by making natural products in her home for the use of her family. Sensitive skin and other skin problems (psoriasis, etc.) run in her family and she wanted her family members to be able to have products that would work well and that would be free from the many chemicals that are commonly used in skin care products. Her husband and other family members were very impressed with the quality and effectiveness of her natural products.
While at a family reunion in 2000 a running joke was started about kelp and its qualities. It was at this time that the secret Help the Kelp Society™ was formed. While sharing with her family, Janice assured them that this focus on kelp could be used effectively in a business.
After returning home Janice began to do research on kelp and discovered it to be an incredible natural source of nutrients. She began to think about using it in conjunction with her natural body care product manufacturing and started experimenting and researching in that area. As a result of her research she also discovered other natural ingredients from the sea that could be used in body care products to make them even more effective and helpful.
In the fall of 2000, shortly after the family reunion mentioned above, Janice's husband drew a comical picture of a head (we're talking really big lips) with kelp growing out of it and Kelphead® Products was born. Janice took that initial logo idea and redrew it to become our current Kelphead® logo.
Kelphead® Products started as a sole proprietorship and has expanded gradually over the years. In the Summer of 2005, Kelphead® Products incorporated as a limited liability company in the state of Washington and became Kelphead® Products LLC.
No matter how large we grow we will continue in our commitment to bring you the finest quality 100% natural body care products.
