Gentle Friends was born when award-winning formulary Kimberly Parry (of Kimberly Parry Organics) turned her talents towards gentle, healthy pet care products. She wanted to make products for conscious, responsible people who care about their health, their pets, and the environment.
Kimberly’s extensive research into natural herbs, powerful botanicals, and essential oils has led her to create effective organic products that are soothing for many kinds of skin conditions, both human and animal. Drawing on her years of experience with natural organics, she designed Gentle Friends with the best ingredients for holistic pet care.
Using pure, organic ingredients and compounds, Gentle Friends products are powerfully effective, yet gentle on the environment and on pets’ skin. All products are formulated to meet the unique needs of our canine companions without using harmful chemicals. We believe in producing fantastic results while remaining committed to a positive global impact.
Our ingredients are sourced from small farms around the world, and we’re so committed to quality that we can trace each batch back to the individual farm and crop that produced the botanicals in your bottle. Each Gentle Friends product is lovingly blended by hand in small batches in St. George, Utah at our USDA Organic certified facility.
Strong and creative women have been the driving force and inspiration for Kimberly Parry. It started with her grandmothers – one an English rose named Emma who taught Kimberly the beauty and solitude of gardening. The other, a fiery Puerto Rican grandmother, Carmen, an exceptional and experimental cook, throwing spices and herbs together while playing her beloved Salsa music.
Kimberly chose a career path in the business world and for 15 years she worked her way up the ladder of corporate America. During that time she married and had two little girls. Days were filled with juggling her job and family and there was little time left for the two passions she had left behind, gardening and cooking. However, her firstborn daughter’s seemingly unending skin problems led Kimberly back to nature in order to find an effective way to treat her baby daughter’s delicate skin.Her daughter’s skin rashes disappeared and “Bum Butter” quickly became the choice of mothers looking for natural treatments for their children.
Kimberly’s extensive research into natural herbs and essential oils has led to the creation of a veritable “formulary” of organic compounds to treat a multitude of skin conditions. The astonishing results quickly spread amongst friends, family and community, and the “Fresh To Order” distribution was born.
Weekends and late nights were spent growing herbs and investigating all things organic. Formulating new blends and scents became a passion and in 2004 Kimberly said goodbye to the corporate world to invest all of her time researching and developing new products. Due to overwhelming interest she knew she was on to a winning idea and founded Kimberly Parry Organics in 2007. Along the way, world-renowned spas and celebrity clients began contacting her, happy to find made-to-order truly organic products custom blended for their needs.
Today, Kimberly Parry, as the leader of Kimberly Parry Organics Inc., has created a platform of pure organic ingredients and compounds. Kimberly Parry Organics sources every ingredient from small farms around the world and maintains traceability by knowing our farmers.In her own manufacturing facility, all products are hand blended in small batches and made in the USA. Her pioneering spirit, devotion and diligence has led to an organic manufacturing company earning the USDA Organic Certification, the gold standard for Pure Organics.
Kimberly Parry Organics is positioned as a “pathfinder” for harnessing the pure powers of nature’s botanicals to promote and sustain skin health in a gentle, yet effective way.
