Detoxwater: aloe vera-infused water amazing for hydration, digestion, and skin.
For Ken Park, aloe meant much more than just the occasional sunburn remedy – it was part of everyday life – thanks to his mother, Myong Park. When he was growing up, his mom experienced extreme digestive health issues. She tried everything. After failing to find any traditional pharmaceutical remedy, a doctor suggested trying aloe.
Needless to say, the aloe worked wonders! Not only were her stomach pains alleviated, but she was beginning to experience the other benefits aloe had to offer, including a boost in her immune system – not to mention the natural glow and enhanced complexions of her skin. She realized aloe was one of Mother Nature’s unmatchable gifts that she had to share with her loved ones. So, the Park family quickly became a pack of aloe enthusiasts. Every morning, Ken’s mom would make fruit and yogurt smoothies mixed with a healthy dose of aloe to ensure her kids started the day off right!
Ken saw a huge void in the marketplace. Sparked by his desire to share aloe’s benefits with his friends, Ken’s quest to make the best-tasting and healthiest aloe drink on the market began. Shortly after, SuperLeaf organic aloe juice was born, which he private labeled and imported, selling beverages out of his dorm room and on campus. Within a few months, Ken ventured out to the Tri- State area and began selling it up and down the streets. By the time Ken graduated Babson, SuperLeaf was being sold in 200 stores! Although Ken called his SuperLeaf project an “experiment,” it grew into a successful company with a strong and loyal customer base. It was then, when he realized he had created something truly special – an aloe drink offering best of the both worlds: great taste + health benefits.
Taking his business even further, Ken transformed SuperLeaf into Detoxwater. Special thanks to tremendous support and a steady partnership with Aloecorp, Ken was able to take what was once a college kid’s dream and turn it into a thriving business. Needless to say, the most impressive aspect of Detoxwater is Ken’s dedication to maintaining an eco-friendly and locally sourced product that offers the highest quality aloe vera. Now that’s a company every mother could be proud of!
Grass Fed Coffee: the world’s first ready-to-drink butter coffee (aka bulletproof coffee), ideal for Keto dieters, intermittent fasters, and for overall energy and sustained mental focus.
The journey began in 2014 when our founder John “Sonic” Ban learned about the powerful benefits of butter coffee. A close friend lost 40 lbs of fat in only 5 months, after drinking butter coffee and adopting the Ketogenic lifestyle.
Shocked and intrigued, Sonic began making butter coffee every morning in place of breakfast. He immediately noticed a mental clarity and focus never experienced before, and his customary morning brain fog disappeared!
Additionally, he felt satiated well past lunchtime, with stable energy all day long! A few months later, Sonic observed his body fat had dropped significantly, and he even had a visible six pack*!
The results were incredible, but Sonic was irritated by the time needed to make butter coffee every day, cleaning up after, and needing to restock ingredients and equipment.
This was the beginning of Grass-Fed Coffee.
Sonic’s mission was to create a product that would make the incredible benefits of butter coffee accessible and convenient for everyone, without compromising taste, quality, and functionality from the amount of grass-fed butter and MCT oil.
We’ve spent the past 3 years sourcing the finest ingredients and crafting countless iterations of Grass Fed Coffee from our home base in downtown LA. It has exceeded our expectations in every possible way, and now we’re finally ready to share it with you!
To help bring our dream to market, we set up a Kickstarter Campaign in December 2015 and broke the record for “Highest Funded Non-Alcoholic Project on Kickstarter, ever.” Our journey has taken us through many challenges and obstacles, but we’ve received incredible support, love, and encouragement to keep pushing until today.
*Founder’s results may not be typical. Everyone is different and results will vary depending on each individual person. Some may experience great results and others may not see any results.
Icelandic Glacial: naturally alkaline spring water with a newly released line of sparkling flavors including Elderflower.

At 7,688 sq. ft., the world class facility is one of the world’s greenest and cleanest.

Testing is continually conducted to ensure Icelandic Glacial Water meets top food safety and quality standards. Our facilities and products are fully accredited by the NSF and always meet or exceed U.S.A. Food & Drug Administration and World Health Organization requirements.
