Meet the Founder


Ryan Crick

22 years old, traditional Christian, former college tennis player, beginner entrepreneur. 

When I left college in early 2021, I had no real idea of what I wanted to pursue career-wise. I just knew that college didn't fit in with my goals in life. Since then, I've worked a normal job in retail (still work there currently, as it helps fund my initial business expenses). I do plan to leave that job as soon as I am established with this business venture.

I got into the holistic lifestyle community in the summer of 2023, thanks to Twitter (now X). I found tons of sources with great information on living a healthy lifestyle, implementing many of these lifestyle changes in the summer and fall of 2023. I started seeing positive changes about 3 months in (less acne, slowly-improving digestive health).

Currently living in Southwest Wisconsin, I personally make every product sold on this website, right out of my apartment (Planning to buy a house this year). I also take care of all the typical business things (taxes, trademarks, customer service, etc.), all with basically no experience. I've got a friend that's been a huge help with the website layout, product label designs and product images. But overall, I went in blind and figured I'd learn as I go, which actually has worked out pretty well.

I first had the idea of starting a wellness product company in the late summer of '23, after starting my own journey into improving my own health. The product that really gave me the idea was a tallow and honey balm product I had recently purchased in hope of helping tame my acne breakouts.

While the product did not solve my skin issues, it did help heal any acne scarring and it seemed to help the sores themselves to heal up faster, which is more than I can say for any other product I'd tried at the time. 

I started making my own version of the product and ended up with a crude version of what I sell now. Not long after, I had the idea of selling this balm. 

I started The Sun Naturalion Company in September of 2023 in order to sell a wide selection of natural wellness products at an affordable price. I hated how the market was and still is filled with products that use low-quality ingredients that either aren't effective or are flat out toxic.

It's been quite a journey getting everything up and running, but I know it'll be well worth it in the end. The hard work is just beginning -- being just me, with no employees, I have to formulate, research, test and produce every single one of my products myself, all while working my day job 40 hours a week.

Currently, I only sell the Tallow & Honey Balm, but I am working on several products that I plan to release in the next couple months (stay tuned). I'm really hoping I can do my part in bringing people back to healthy living (crazy idea, I know), but seeing the results firsthand, I really wish to enlighten as many others as I can!

I'm so excited to be on this journey, and hope you'll join me!
