Mission-Driven Skincare: The History of our Herbal Skin Soother

Meet the product that started it all: the Herbal Skin Soother. That’s right—this is the formula that started our company, and it has gained a loyal following over the years.

Kettle Care®’s founder crafted the first Herbal Skin Soother 40 years ago from ingredients in her garden. Having struggled with eczema her whole life, she decided to use her natural extracts to make a homemade skin cream. To her surprise, the cream cured her eczema.

Wondering what made her homemade cream so much more powerful than the other products she had tried, she compared the formulas. What she discovered was a key difference—a difference that still sets our skincare apart, 40 years later:

High ratios of skin-soothing ingredients,

very little water,

and free of the popular chemicals.

This discovery shaped Kettle Care’s philosophy.

When we create new formulas today, we look for clean, natural ingredients that hydrate, soothe, and nourish the skin, and we add as much of these ingredients as will fit in the jar.

We are always looking for ways to make our products more effective and healthier for our customers.

You deserve the best Mother Nature has to offer, and with Kettle Care®, that is exactly what you get.
