In 2013, Carter Lash, owner of Carter's Essentials, wanted to help a close family member in need. He decided to create a pain cream that turned out to really help. Knowing the relief he brought to his dear relative, and seeing a demand for more products that were truly effective, Carter understood what his mission was going to be. After making some business decisions he left his hometown of Stowe, VT and headed out west to get established a promising endeavor in California.
