Kimberly Parry, founder of Kimberly Parry Organics, has always had an interest in gardening, but her previous corporate job prevented her from having any time to pursue this hobby. Her daughter’s chronic skin problems, however, forced Parry to turn to gardening to find a natural remedy. She formulated a product, known today as the best-selling “Bum Butter,” to remove her daughter’s skin rashes. After this, Kimberly continued extensively researching botanical remedies, which led to the creation of various organic compounds to treat many different skin conditions. Her effective products spread quickly to her friends and family, and she developed a “Fresh to Order” distribution. In 2004, Kimberly left her corporate career to commit all her time to researching and developing products, and after experiencing an overwhelming demand, she founded Kimberly Parry Organics in 2007.
When creating products, Parry emphasizes effective results, not budget constraints. She accomplishes this by prioritizing sustainable skin health through combining traditional botanical remedies with a modern understanding of skincare. Kimberly Parry Organics prides itself in using only pure organic ingredients, all sourced from small, traceable farms around the world. “We make all of our own complex ingredients. That way, we can really monitor the quality of ingredients that go into each product; we want to keep the nutrition alive! We are the manufacturer and source all the ingredients,” says Parry. The brand’s commitment to organic ingredients even earned it a USDA Organic Certification. Just like organic food is better for the body, so too are organic products for the skin. All of the products are also hand blended in the United States, in Kimberly Parry’s own manufacturing facility.
Kimberly Parry Organics is very eco-friendly and their use of only organic ingredients helps create a less toxic footprint. By using minimal packaging, recyclable plastic, reused materials, and biodegradable packing shred, Kimberly Parry Organics takes every measure to consciously preserve our planet. The brand’s products have also earned “Champion Status” on EWG’s Skin Deep Database, certifying the purity and safety of the products.
