• The Quest for the Fountain of Youth. Tamanu Oil?

    Skin Health & Anti-Aging   When we started Keys, it was for my sweetie’s battle against Melanoma. As the story goes, her surgery was successful, but her battle against the prescription skincare seemed futile. I had to find ingredients in the natural world to help her skin recover and flourish in a hostile environment. Besides finding ingredients and combining them into products that work for all sorts of skin issues, it started a quest for…

    Recognizing Craft Distillers – They May Just Have Saved A Lot of Lives Our new hand sanitizer can be refilled at home. The lead article shows you how to make it.

  • Just Wash Hands

    Yes, it is flu season, and traveling is getting to be a more significant concern. It is the time of year to write about not only how to wash your hands, but why doing it the wrong way can hurt. Many years ago, we researched the University of California Irvine on proper handwashing as a means to stay healthy during flu and virus outbreaks. The study formed our opinion, which I will share here. The…

  • Micelle Cleansers – Beware Petroleum Micelle’s

    Micelle Cleansing Everywhere you read, people are introducing micellar water, micellar cleansers, and micellar tonics. Funny, when we launched our Island Rx Micellar cleanser 16 years ago, not many listened or cared. What did happen, though, is that it became one of our top selling products because of our vegan micellar structure. The reason for that is that micelle in the soap makes it clean deeper and leaves the skin not harmed like chemical-based detergent…

  • Reversing Aging Damaged Skin?

    Can my skin recover after years of damage? Yes. I recently had a 60-year-old woman ask me if there is a way to reverse the damage she had done to her skin over the years. She elaborated that she had tanned too much in her teens, lives in a desert environment, smoked, and spent her business years flying and scurrying around airports. Looking at my skin, she commented that she’s never looked that good. It…

  • Keys Epigenetic Skincare Products – Functional Skin Health

    There are many things that we can do in our lives to change our genetic processes. We have found that one of the significant enigmas as humans is inflammation. It is measurable, but at the same time, very distant and diverse. Inflammation is external chemical factors or internal changes like stress. Stress itself is unusual because anything the afflicts itself on our bodies is stress in a form. We have found that many chemicals used…

  • Winter is Sunscreen Season – Keys Solar Rx Secrets

    by Wendy Steele, Keys CEO Every skier around the world knows the importance of using sunscreens at high altitude. As the air thins, the UV radiation protection from the atmosphere declines exponentially. The same is true when it gets cold and dry at sea level. Worse, cold winds chap, dry, and redden the skin on your face neck and hands. Ironically, it can be as important to wear sunscreen in the winter as in the…

  • Keys Story – About Us & You

    I have never told my story. Most of everything we have written is about Wendy's fight with Cancer and stupidity in the skincare market intermixed with how I created our products. So, since it is 15 years in business this year, I just felt like writing down my perspective of who we are. In 1994, I met the woman of my dreams. In 1997, I nearly lost her to Melanoma cancer. Dr. Hugh Greenway at…

  • Canada – 10% Discount

    The Keys Canadian distributor of 15 years has decided to retire from her wholesale business. With the trade disputes, tariffs, taxes, high shipping costs, and currency imbalance, the business of wholesaling in Canada just became too much of a burden for her. Equally, selling wholesale into Canada has become equivalent to a loss for Keys.  We know that we have many loyal customers in Canada that we do not want to abandon, so we have…

  • Keys Overview – 15 Years

    Business people have a thing they call an elevator speech. It is a short description of a business delivered on a short elevator ride that tells someone what your company does and its purpose. Recently I was, you guessed it, on an elevator and someone asked me what Keys does. Here is what I said: "Keys 15 Years of natural product development are easy to understand. They are whole natural ingredient products designed to perform…

  • Keto Diet and Skincare!

    There are two ways you can save half of your skincare products price. Either you get 50% off the price, or you only have to use half as much. We have always said that a 100ml 4-ounce bottle of Luminos or Tortuga lotion is like getting a 600ml bottle of lotion. It is because there is almost no water in the formulation. All of the oils are concentrated and in therapeutic proportions. Avocado oil is…

  • Micellar Water – FAD or Innovation

    Keys Island Rx Foaming wash is a patriarch of our line. With the popularity of micellar water cleansers, we thought it would be essential to point out that Island Rx has always been micelle-based. It has been that way since its introduction in 2004. Our society, especially beauty, is fad and fan based. Keys has always been a "Fan" based product line, but we have started a few "Fads" in our 15 years. More often…

  • Melanoma Awareness – Important

    The list is long. Dianne Keaton, Melanie Griffith, Hugh Jackman, and Anderson Cooper are all now advocates of skin cancer protection. There are several different types of skin cancer, including melanoma, basal cell skin cancer, and squamous cell skin cancer. Nonmelanoma skin cancer is a prevalent cancer in the United States, with more than 5 million people diagnosed each year. Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, which are nonmelanoma skin cancers, are the most…

  • FDA Set to Ban Chemical Sunscreen Ingredients

      FDA Study Reports Chemical Sunscreens Enter Bloodstream in One-Day In a recent report and study by the FDA, it appears they are on a path to ban all chemical sunscreen ingredients used in most sunscreens on the market. Keys Solar Rx is a clear physical sunscreen using zinc oxide. The four chemicals studied — avobenzone, oxybenzone, ecamsule and octocrylene — are part of a dozen that the FDA recently said needed to be researched…

    There Must Be A Reasonable Way to Ship to Canada? We have wanted to treat our northern neighbors and friends with an easy to use store so they’ll  could buy Keys products with ease.  Now maybe, we have figured out how to make it even easier.

  • Galleyon Antibacterial Soap – A Multi-Use Wonder

    I have super sensitive skin. I am also a germaphobe. For that reason, I pay attention to everything that touches my skin. After all, this is the season when bugs and viruses seem to peak.

  • Keys Skin Aid – Deodorant Alternative

    For 15 years, customers have asked me to develop a deodorant. When I asked specifics, what they wanted was an antiperspirant. I may have unintentionally given them what they wanted. About six months ago a young Keys fan texted me that he had been using our SkinAid as a deodorant and antiperspirant. I immediately corrected him that it probably would make a good deodorant, but was unlikely an antiperspirant. He quickly corrected me and said…

  • Mangrove Hair & Skin Conditioner for Men

    I was at a classic style barber shop in Mesilla New Mexico. Sort of a man cave with traditional services. After the cut and shampoo, my barber laid a hot towel on my face. Then to my surprise, he conditioned my hair and then moved to my face. Yes, he used the same conditioner on my face and hair. It felt good, and I asked him to see the conditioner bottle to look at the…

  • Calluses a Gluten Connection?

    I was attending a panel discussion at an industry event. A researcher from Finland showed a study connection calluses on feet, knees, hands, and elbows to people having gluten intolerance. The speaker did not offer any solutions other than avoiding gluten. What was particularly interesting is that she did point out that it was a manifestation that covered those people with mild gluten intolerances as well as those with full-blown celiac disease. I asked her…

  • Island Rx for Acne

    Fifteen years ago, one of the first things we discovered about our Island Rx pure castile soap was its fantastic success with acne and backne. What we found was that the combination of slightly high alkalinity and the Clary Sage had a tremendous effect on controlling and reversing acne. Today it is available in two bottle types — the original liquid soap and a facial cleansing foamer version. The liquid version is a strong fighter…

  • Eczema – It’s Probably the Chemicals in Your Life!

    Eczema seems to be a catchall term for a lot of doctors. The cause is unknown, but some of us suspect chemicals in everyday products. Bob Root - Keys Founder Common culprits for chemically induced eczema are sulfates in laundry detergents, PEG (propylene glycol) in just about everything and parabens (a biocide in most products). So, what we have heard from our customers is that finding the cause of the skin irritation is much more…

  • Dog Groomers – Show and Tell

    Groomers, show me your hands! We travel all over the US with our dog Jasper. He is a snow-white Bichon Frise. Jasper's coat care requires grooming every six weeks.
