Melanoma Was The Keys Beginnings

Bob Root – Keys Founder & Scientist

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 Scripps in LaJolla, CA saved her life. The prescriptions so severely hurt her that the experience became the basis for the invention of our products. The experience changed my life and my purpose. Read our book, “Defining Moments” and will get a tiny glimpse….tiny… of our lives together.

Keys was born was out of strife and conflict. It was a confusing time where any action was better than no action. Everything on the market was full of junk and even the “natural” brands had parabens and sulfates. It was 2004 when the first four products debuted at the Natural Products Expo and the years since have been full of change, innovation, and staying true to our purpose. It shocked the industry when our newly minted sunscreen, Solar Rx, was featured as the most effective by Consumer Reports Magazine, and the EWG ranked it the safest out there.

Another Defining Moment for us is when Maria Shriver as the first lady of California invited us to exhibit at her California Women’s Conference.  Not only did she give us this great opportunity, she asked us to place products in the speaker’s gift bags.  She also helped me to launch my book, “Chemical-Free Skin Health®” next to Dr. Oz.  It was amazing with over 30,000 women mixed with 126 celebrity speakers including Jane Fonda, Oprah, and Caroline Kennedy.  She refers to our products as, “So Pure.”

What has not changed is our dedication to the basic principles that I defined to design and build our authentic niche products. While big brands flex to the market trends to be more natural, they tended to be of a marketing effort than a reformulation. At Keys then and now, our principles and dedication to functional products have not wavered. It is simple yet hard.

Keys Saves You Time and Money – Buy Direct or From Our Resellers

keys-newsBuy Direct or Buy From Resellers

Buying From Dealers

Its your choice to buy direct or buy from one of our resellers.  We have a large list of retailers that you can buy from at their establishments or online.  It is convenient to be able to buy Keys while you are shopping for other products.  You can find a dealer near you using our “Dealer Locator.”  The reality is that not all dealers stock all of our products all of the time.  So, it is important that you call them to make sure they have the products in stock.

Buying Direct

The other reality is that when you buy direct, we always have all of our products in stock.  Ordering direct saves you time, fuel, money and no tax.

Discounts & Promotions

There are many ways to save at Keys.  We have created a series of ongoing promotions and discounts to help you save.  These are consumer programs that are automatic when you fulfill certain requirements.

Below are some of the ongoing promotions and discounts that have no expiration date.

Buy Direct

If you are a domestic US customer and buy direct from us spending $75 or more, you will receive free USPS Priority Mail Shipping.  When the net amount of your order exceeds $75 and you are shipping into a US address, your shipping is free

Buy Direct

Our rewards program gives you points that can be used like money to purchase products on future orders.  Every time you buy, you will get 5% of your gross purchase minus shipping charges in the form of usable money that you can apply to future orders or stockpile.  At checkout, you can choose to apply the amount available to you.  The system automatically keeps a record and calculates the rewards points available for you to use.

Buy Direct

For many years we had a “Wendy’s Regime” that required you buy five (5) specific products.  You asked to be able to build your own regimen and we listened.  Now when you buy five (5) uniquely different products or more, you will receive a 10% discount on those products.  Remember they all have to be different and if you buy more then one of a particular product, it will be at the regular price.  This build your own DIY kit rewards buying five unique products at a time.

Buy Direct

A few years ago, we started to receive requests for volume purchases from some of our Cancer survivors.  They had to use a lot of our products like Tortuga and they requested that if they would buy more at one time, would we give them a discount.  The answer is yes and we have had this program where you buy three (3) of a product at one time and you will automatically receive a 5% discount.

Buy Direct

This program is similar to the one above where you buy 6 of a single product, you will get a 10% discount on those products.  You can buy multiples of six of different products and get 10% off on each.  This is not a mix and match program.  You must buy six each of any product to get the discount.

Lastly

Keys products are very rich and emollient.  They go a long way and last a long time.  Less is more!

We also believe our products out perform products sold that can cost 5 to 6 times as much because we do not layer in huge margins for marketing and advertising.  Our brand is one of the best there is, we solve problems with solutions and we are 100% natural, gluten-free, chemical-free and non-GMO…Nothing synthetic!

Why We Use Airless Pumps and Not Tubes

Airless Pumps versus Tubes
By Bob Root Keys Technologist

airlessvstubesI am often asked the question of why I chose airless pumps for our products over traditional tubes. Well, there is no simple answer, but a series of reasons that we chose this very advanced technology developed in the Netherlands along with our design team. The most important reasons are health, safety and cleanliness of the product. True, tubes are less expensive, easier to fill and more common. The problem with tubes is that they were never designed for natural products. Continue reading Why We Use Airless Pumps and Not Tubes

RediCare – Healing Spray and Natural Insect Repellent for People and Their Pets!

Miracle product? Could Be!

redicare

RediCare is certainly, a product that has touched so many people and pets in a positive way that we just had to write this article.

Keys RediCare offers solutions to skin disorders, internal disorders that cause the skin to react, itch and breakdown. For sunburns, burns and scrapes, RediCare performs equally as well. RediCare is a natural insect repellent and much more. It all begins with the story of how RediCare became such a universal product. It was born from inspiration, a natural disaster and the people and the animals that suffered from exposure to chemicals, poisons, exposure and pollutants.


The Keys RediCare story is as important as what the product does for people and pets today. Born as a result of Hurricane Katrina, the early search and rescue teams came back with skin disorders, poison ivy outbreaks, raw skin, burned chemically and from the sun. The irritations were both visible and wide spread. The search and rescue team members, handlers and their dogs were suffering long after the weeks they spent in waist deep water that was polluted with gasoline, industrial chemicals, natural toxins, waste and everything imaginable. Members of the Continue reading RediCare – Healing Spray and Natural Insect Repellent for People and Their Pets!
