Jamark Laboratories, Inc. was founded in 1996 by Jim Kaiser (president- has over 30 years in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries) and Mark Oberlin in order to bring time tested formulas back to the market place. The original item, Surgeon’s Skin Secret, was developed by a plastic surgeon in Grand Rapids, MI during the early 1950’s. The plastic surgeon was only using this formula in his practice. It was Jim and Mark’s goal to bring this wonderful time-tested formula to the public.
Our company, which is located in Grand Rapids, MI, has seen a great increase over the past 11 years. We first started (1996) in a small 400 square foot office where the product was made by hand and by the use of small, table top commercial filler. After only one year and a tremendous amount of growth we moved into a 2,000 square foot building and hired a contract manufacturer to produce Surgeon’s Skin Secret. It was during this time that we introduced new scents to compliment the original Surgeon’s Skin Secret (which is unscented). During this time we also began to gain in popularity on the Nation’s largest home shopping network- QVC.
Since July, 1997, Jim has become somewhat of a celebrity as a regular guest on the QVC television network, an international shopping channel reaching over 90 million American homes. "QVC has made it possible to reach millions of consumers both in the US, and now in Great Britain on QVC/UK and show them the story of Surgeon's Skin Secret and how our time-tested formulas can help them. We are proud to be a part of the QVC family".
Finally, in 2001 Jamark Laboratories was moved to another building on the South East side of Grand Rapids. This facility is over 10,000 square feet and provided us with the room needed to fulfill our customer’s expectations, as well as our ever growing product lineup. The Surgeon’s Skin Secret line of products has now grown to over 40 items/configurations! Our present facility also has enough room for us to grow and expand in the future.
