Our Story

We are Family

Papa & Barkley products were inspired by a son’s mission to ease his elderly father’s immobilizing back pain, which forced “Papa” into hospice care. After conventional treatments failed, he researched and created an effective product in his father’s kitchen. The success of this first product was the inspiration for our line of natural topical balms and oils, tinctures and capsules for pain management, anti-inflammation, and wellness.

Our company is named after Papa and the family’s loyal pit bull, Barkley, who was always at Papa’s side. The partnership of Papa & Barkley symbolizes the unconditional care and passion we put in each and every product. Our Essentials line was created to extend the caring reach of Papa & Barkley outside of California.
