Hi Ryphon – I just wanted to let you know of some of the experiences I am having with your products. I am 66 years of age, and have been having some challenges with my hair being dry and frizzy looking. I call it my Einstein look! However, since I have started giving a few sprays of your Pure Simplicity facial moisturizer in my hair after showering, I am noticing it is looking much more youthful and manageable. Plus, one of my clients commented that I was looking younger after I started using the Pure Simplicity on my face! I am sorry to see that product is not shown on this website. I know you sell it at the farmers’ market, and am hoping it will also become available at Whole Foods, along with your other products which they already carry.
Upon starting to have a severe ant problem, I started using your Slick Soap to deter them from entering the house. Being in a hurry, I did not dilute the Slick Soap as you had instructed me, but simply squirted some full strength along the kitchen floor where there is a long crack next to the wall through which the ants had been entering. The ants disappeared! But even better, when I later went to wipe up the excess Slick Soap I was amazed to see how clean it was making my very old and seemingly discolored tile floor! I am now so excited to see my old kitchen floor actually sparkle!!
Thank you so much, Ryphon, for your uniquely effective products!
Good afternoon Mr. Ryphon,
About a week ago I purchased your puree of Aloe Vera Lotion with Glycerin at Whole Food. Varicose veins in my legs were hurting badly on and off. I followed your advice and used your lotion on the bad spots. The pain is gone!!!!
I stopped by Whole Food today to thank you – but will come again and buy the lotion as a gift for others.
I have been a user of Ryphon’s products for many years and appreciate the healing and itch relief that comes from their application to insect stings, bites, and other skin irritants. I have been a vendor at a Farmer’s market along with Ryphon for the last several years and have often heard him make the claim that his product repells ticks when used prophylactically. In the Spring of 2017 I decided to test this claim for my self.
Every Spring I usually go on day long deep woods forays in search of morel mushrooms during tick season and almost always end up with a couple of tick bites after my return. I did two such hikes in April of 2017. Before each hike I rubbed some of Ryphon’s lotion on my neck, wrists, and ankles. I can report that I did not find a single tick on my skin during these outings. I did see several ticks on my clothing and backpack (so it is not that there were just no ticks) but none crawled onto my skin. I’ve been doing this Spring ritual for the last 40 years (every Spring with a morel season) and this is the only Spring I can remember that I did not get at least one tick bite.
I would highly recommend your “Pureed Aloe” to anyone who asks. I have had Psoriasis on both of my hands for 7 to 8 years. My palms were covered with very dry cracked skin — at times open and bleeding and very painful when washing. During this time, I went to three different Dermatologist and tried several different prescription medications. None were effective. During these years I also tried numerous over the counter creams, lotions, and soaps. Some did help, but none cleared up the problem. My children were always on the look out for something to help me. Then my daughter met you and introduced me to you at Forest Lakes. I started using your “Cream of Aloe Vera” in mid- September and in less than 6 weeks my hands are completely “cleared”. I now use the cream once or twice a week to maintain them in prefect condition. Please feel free to use my experience and name in any way that will help others!
P.S: My son is a Veterinarian in Norfolk, Va This product may have applications in his field also. I’m sending a copy of this email to him also.
A few weeks ago after doing quite a bit of gardening I noticed numerous red welts on my arms and legs that were unbearably itchy. Much to my dismay I realized they were from chiggers. After nearly a week of trying different remedies, I was introduced to the Forces In Nature Cordials and the slick soap. I was told help was near after a few applications. I am very happy to report that after just one application not only did the redness and swelling go down but most all of the itching stopped. This was just amazing as I had tried other products and nothing was working. I have also used the General Purpose Slick Soap product for other purposes and have had very good results as well. I have used the Slick Soap to ward away wasps, remove moths from the food cupboard, cleanse mold from the eves by the gutters, and for taking stains out of my rugs. He has created a very versatile product and I certainly recommend it.
I LOVE the results I’m getting from the Cream of Aloe Vera. I’m still using the original jar I purchased. This cream is amazing! I had a 12 inch diagonal surgical scar that stretched from my solar plexus to my right hip. I had this scar for twenty seven years. It was quite disfiguring to put it mildly. I decided to use the cream of aloe Vera and the results are amazing.
The scar is nearly gone along a 5 inch area and the skin that was pulled out of place is not causing the discomfort that I would sometimes experience. I will of course continue to use this. The remaining portion to be healed is a scar that is raised and about 6 inches long.
Another wonderful result is the skin on my face looks better, more color in my complexion which always was sallow unless I applied foundation and blush. I no longer am using foundation as I’m satisfied with how my face looks naturally. Recently I was in the car with my husband in bright Florida sunshine and He says “your face is looking less wrinkled and more firm”. At age 67 that was nice to hear especially from a man who usually doesn’t compliment folks on their looks.
Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I am a very satisfied customer and user of the Cream of Aloe Vera product that you make. About 2 years very visible and unsightly “spider veins” began to appear on my face. A dermotologist told me that the only treatment was with lasers – a costly, painful, and potentially scarring treatment that promised at best short-term results lasting maybe a year. I began to research alternative treatments, and began to use several different products, such as Horse Chestnut Cream and Vitamin K cream. Your Cream of Aloe Vera works at least as well in greatly reducing the appearance of the spider veins, while costing much less and leaving my skin feeling and looking smooth and refreshed. Thank you for making such a great product, and feel free to use me to endorse this product.
A very satisfied customer,
I have been looking for a rejuvenating skin product for several years – and this Cream of Aloe Vera is it! I also have found theFunky Stuff bar shampoo to be moisturizing for my hair and I use it most every day. These Slick Soap products are a major offering for self care!”
Physician, heal thyself is an adage which applies to us all. In science, religion and life answers are revealed so often with intention and the desire to find solutions or remedy a prevailing situation.
I was confronted with a Seborrhea or eczema like skin condition that no one could get under control. Over these last 15 years of the condition I had sought out a few dermatologists with inconclusive results. Recently I went to another dermatologist for my worsening condition and again consented to take a biopsy to rule out Lupus.
With Lupus ruled out and more inconclusive conclusions as to what the condition really was I decided to leave the steroid prescription at the pharmacy. Coincidently if there is such a thing, I had just finished the long preparatory process of creating my new “Slick Soap”. I opted instead to see what it could do. Actually I focused on using my unique “Cream of Aloe Vera” Cordial formula. Almost immediately I noticed a change. After two weeks the pealing and scaly patches were seriously reduced.
Before I developed this condition my face had always been very oily with a long history of white and pitted blackheads. This year the scaly skin eruptions had worsened and gotten onto my right upper and lower eye lids, scaring the skin in such a way that the hardened skin would often cause the upper lid to droop as you sometimes see in stoke victims. A situation that was rather stressful to me and having just turned 61 years of age I felt strongly that that was the wrong direction to be traveling.
So I started my regiment by looking in the magnifying mirror each morning as I applied the Cream of Aloe Vera Cordial directly to the skin without water similar to a mask, with special attention to any dry pealing patches. I would leave the cream on as long as I could.
I felt strongly that combining an Aloe Vera puree with my Soy Glycerin soap concentrate would create an extraordinary synergetic substance. I had always felt a strong connection with the Aloe Vera plant knowing its apex ability to reduce inflammations, etc. so for twenty or more years I have grown Aloe Vera plants in my apartments wherever I lived. I recently researched in more depth the historic and current findings of this amazing plant which I shared on the first page.
Glycerin, my major ingredient was produced by the transesterification process which separated the molecule from fresh oil crushed from Soybeans as I processed the oil into Biodiesel fuel. Then I mixed other natural ingredients with the drawn off glycerin to create a rejuvenating and moisturizing concentrated cleansing soap!
Before my eyes my face was being renewed with healthy tissue reversing my strange combination of oiliness and dry scaly patches which had spread over and just under almost the entire facial surface. The acne and accompanying puffy swelling was vanishing also. To my amazement elasticity was returning to my skin. Now, only such a relatively short time after I had brought attention to my distress over the drooping of my eye lid to the Dermatologist and being told that she did not now of anything that could be done! I started to see the scar tissue on my eye lid begin to soften, allowing folds in the skin again which enabled the lid to retract into its eye socket with ease!
Now as I look into the mirror I know, that I am joining that rare group of individuals that have opened to the possibilities and were led to their answers!”
Stay Well, Ryphon G. Gray
“This is from your most rushed person you have ever met, and I just wanted to tell you that I used the puree this evening and it had an immediate effect on my face – a wonderful calming and soothing sensation, and one could tell right away how much it was sinking into the skin immediately and healing it, wonderful, wonderful material, thank you.”
