The roots of O'Keeffe's Company go back more than 20 years to an arid region on the California-Oregon border known as the Klamath Basin. Bill O'Keeffe was a rancher and diagnosed diabetic who loved his rigorous, physical work. The tough lifestyle, however, took its toll on his hands and feet. His daughter, Tara, seeing the pain caused by his chronically dry skin, was driven to find a better product than the traditional moisturizers on the market.
Applying her skills as a pharmacist, Tara and her father spent years creating and testing various formulations mixed in her kitchen, until, many years later, she developed a product that worked better than any others they had come across. This was the basic formula for what has become O'Keeffe's Working Hands and, eventually, O'Keeffe's for Healthy Feet.
Now, with the amazing quality of Bill and Tara O'Keeffe's formula, O'Keeffe's Company is committed to carrying out their legacy-developing skin care solutions that work as hard as you do. O'Keeffe's Company is a family-owned business and is proud to support our workers, the backbone of every American community.
