From an early age, Scotia Kelp founder Darron Hill has suffered from significant skin ailments and sensitivities including: severe psoriasis, eczema, sensitivity to the sun, as well as food/environmental allergies. Worsening in his teens, Darron was hospitalized where doctors attempted a procedure to regrow new skin. He was wrapped in a medicated soft paste, non-drying body cast. It was successful and condition improved with continual medical treatment such that he was able to get back to daily living but still afflicted with daily symptoms.
It was the first time in his life that he felt he had something that gave his skin relief. His skin condition improved noticeably. His skin was softer, not as irritated/ itchy from the eczema and dry skin. His sensitivity to the sun was greatly reduced as well. Amazed by the results and the new joy of life, it also sparked his passion for sharing the many benefits of kelp for those who suffer from similar health issues and challenges.
With the increase in demand for natural remedies/alternatives, Darron has seen growth in the kelp industry and believes this is the right time to engage his full- time efforts in pursuing his passion through his kelp products.
He then learned of the impressive benefits to a wide range of health-boosting applications. This super-plant from the sea was also able to help plants and animals manage stress.
The medical industry has been working with brown seaweeds for a long time and is starting to be recognized in a range of skin repairing and medicative applications.
