Wally’s Natural, Inc
After their youngest son struggled with ear problems and traditional medical remedies had been exhausted with little effect, the Sheppard’s tried holistic candling. With success the Sheppard’s decided that they wanted to share this practice with others, and Wally’s Natural Products Inc. was born. Wally’s Natural Products Inc. established its roots in Russ and Terese Sheppard’s Auburn, California home in 1991. Using only premium Bees and Paraffin wax, unbleached cotton muslin and an array of all-natural essential oils, Wally’s Natural Products Inc. soon became the talk of the Natural Products Industry. Through effective advertising and popularity with our customers, Terese and Russ were able to increase production capacity and began to plan for future growth. Their four children’s contribution was instrumental to the success of this thriving 3 generation family business. Working together as only a tight knit family unit can, the Sheppard’s created a positive reputation for the company, of consistently high quality standards and excellent customer service.
In 1997 Wally’s received hundreds of orders from GNC, Wild Oats and Whole Food Markets. Expansion began, a solar powered building was purchased, and with hard work and consistently high customer service, sales had far surpassed annual projections by 2006. Wally’s continued to add specialized products for healthy ear care. Today Wally’s products are now being sold in more than 14,000 retail outlets throughout the United States and abroad. With the addition of new products like Wally’s Outer Ear Wipes, which is an alternative to the cotton swab, Wally’s continues to grow in popularity as an innovative leader in the Natural Products Industry.
