To our customers,
Thank you for your loyalty and for trying Kaeng Raeng! Our customers are the foundation of our business and the reason we are where we are today. You are our advocates, ambassadors, and friends; thank you!
I started this company six years ago with a single blender in my one bedroom apartment in downtown Palo Alto. I was working long hours as an advisor to natural products companies and hated how unhealthy I had become. I started experimenting with raw vegan diets and created cleansing smoothies in my kitchen. I knew what I had created was special (because it worked); so, in true Silicon Valley fashion, I posted about my weight loss, renewed energy, and better skin on Facebook. Several men and women, people just like you, asked if they could join me in jumpstarting a healthier lifestyle.
I created Kaeng Raeng Cleanse to provide an accessible, healthy, delicious, and FILLING natural cleanse product to the market. I was sick of how tired and gross I felt with my awful diet of processed, artificial foods and decided to embrace the culture of health and wellness so ubiquitous in Northern California. I found doing the Kaeng Raeng cleanse exhilarating and liberating. I could really taste my food. I was finally aware of what I was putting into my body.
I named the company Kaeng Raeng, pronounced kang-rang, which means "be healthy, be strong" in the Thai language. I continue to be fascinated with Thai's cultural cuisine focused on the vegetarian lifestyle (Phuket, Thailand has the largest vegetarian festival in the world). KR is truly a product that empowers you to find your best health and inner strength. Although we have a Thai name, KR is based in California. We strive to use ingredients from local suppliers and package our products in the USA.
Over the years I found great partners like CNN health expert Dr. Melina Jampolis, Kim Barnouin, author of Skinny Bitch, who officially endorses the cleanse, and the inspiring Lauren Conrad who endorses our Detoxfoliant scrub. We brought on staff one by one, updated our packaging, adopted a dog-in-chief, moved into a warehouse, and launched new lines. But I've never lost sight of the original goal of the company: to provide our customers with high quality, affordable cleansing products.
No I'm not a stick-thin model or a hippy. Kaeng Raeng is not owned by a Wall Street bank or a foreign corporation. I'm just an entrepreneur who used to have trouble staying healthy, and I found a kick ass way to always look and feel my best. I'm writing this so that you know who we are, and what we stand for. Today, we're launching new and exciting cleansing products every quarter, including our brand new vegan body care line.
Kaeng Raeng is a privately owned corporation based in the San Francisco bay area. Our supplements are blended and packaged in a certified GMP FDA regulated facility for your health and safety and all of our body care products are hand packaged in small batches right here in California. As a small business we're committed to growing sustainably and helping our customers get healthy in a safe and natural way. It might surprise you to know that as CEO, I personally read many customer emails, so if you've got questions or suggestions, please tell us. We're always listening!
I hope you love Kaeng Raeng products as much as I do. Thank you for your business.
Lindsay Reinsmith, Founder & CEO
